60 Years of Martian Manhunter – 1957
Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or directly download an art-tagged MP3 from the Internet Archive
After nearly a year, you’d be forgiven for thinking we were covering our retrospective of John Jones’ publication history in real time. Blame our coverage of the current but increasingly finite ongoing Martian Manhunter
maxi-series? 1957 offers a lot of repeats with slight variations on John Jones stories, but also the debuts of pretty probationary policewoman Diane Meade and TOR, Robot Criminal from Mars! Also, we look at the Sleuth from Outer Space’s international publication history, which started quite early in Mexico and Australia, the latter proving the Martian Detective his first ever cover appearance (a phenomena well known to Aquaman, who turned up on lots of foreign editions in original illustrations before fronting a book in his native country.) Also, ads for our friend podcasts, Pulp 2 Pixel’s Secret Sagas of the Multiverse and Count Drunkula’s The Power of Fishnets.
We enjoy dialogue on the red planet, so here are our non-telepathic contact options:
- Tweet host Diabolu Frank directly, or probe @rolledspine as a group.
- Email Diabolu
- If the main Idol-Head of Diabolu blog isn’t your thing, try the umbrella Rolled Spine Podcasts.
