The Idol-Head of Diabolu Podcast #3

60 Years of Martian Manhunter – 1955

Look for us on iTunes, or elsewhere

Three episodes in, we finally cover the debut comics of J’Onn J’Onzz, the Manhunter from Mars. The Batman and Roy Raymond TV Detective stories from Detective Comics #225 are given brief nods before diving into a synopsis of “The Strange Experiment of Dr. Erdel” (01:46). A rather overwrought analysis of this first story of Detective John Jones (05:54) precedes coverage of the second “half” of the origin, the run-of-the-mill mostly standalone tale “The Case of the Magic Baseball” (18:46). Finally, “Martian Morphing Mail” (21:10) has already morphed away from the previous episode’s audio, and is a bit livelier this round. Coming in at a stout 31:24, look for the show to lean back up again now that the heavy lifting of our subject’s introduction is out of the way (and hopefully less painful voice “acting.”)

We enjoy dialogue on the red planet, so here are our non-telepathic contact options:
