The Thing is Big Ben was a weekly comic published by Marvel UK from 28th March 1984 to 25th July 1984 (18 issues). It featured reprints from the American Marvel Comics title Marvel Two-in-One, starring Ben Grimm, alias The Thing of the Fantastic Four (hence the title, which attempted to put a British spin on the character by linking him somewhat obscurely with the famous bell of the Westminster clock tower) teamed up with other characters such as Rom, as well as back-up strips featuring Iron Man, Power Man & Iron Fist and Captain America. After the title's cancellation, its lead strip was transferred to the pages of Spider-Man weekly. There was also a Summer Special, also published in 1984.

The first two issues carried cover mounted free gifts; a thin card Big Ben cap in the first and a cardboard "Big Ben Banger" in the second.
