On October 8, 2014, the website Comics Bulletin published a discussion between Bryan Stroud and the famous painter of Marvels and Kingdom Come in the article Alex Ross Talks About the Martian Manhunter on the Cusp of J’onn J’onzz’s 60th Anniversary. Nearly two years later, with the Alien Atlas’ next birthday imminent and with the help of an online text-to-audio program, Diabolu Frank joins their conversation…

Adjudicating J’Onn J’Onzz
ComicsVerse v Martian Manhunter

Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or directly download an art-tagged MP3 from the Internet Archive

The website Comicsverse, “your source for in-depth comics analysis” very very briefly ran a series of podcasts (exactly two to date, the last one in January) under the banner “Best Underrated Characters in Comics.” Mind, this is out of 80 shows in total, and there’ve been 19 since, so perhaps they just abandoned the premise. I tend to think that’s for the best, since I find the title misleads one into thinking they’re going to select a character they find deserving of attention they haven’t received and tell you why they’re boss.

Unfortunately, in the episodes shining a white hot interrogation lamp on two heroes I’m very fond of, the shows instead felt like inquisitions to determine whether they are in fact underrated, or just poo (with the moderator’s thumb on the scale weighing toward poo in both cases.) One was Doctor Strange, and you should know by the subject of this blog who the other was…

Join me for a special feature length episode with Diabolu Frank for the defense in the case of ComicsVerseS the Manhunter from Mars, but you should lead with the prosecution’s case before you allow me to retort! Superman, Batman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and the rest of the Justice League will be called into question and occasionally treated as hostile witnesses as part of The Trial of the Incredible Hulk Sleuth from Outer Space!
