The Martian's True Form Is Exposed!
The second issue of DC's Martian Manhunter returns to newsstands this week, bringing with it a further fascinating look into the culture of Mars. Riley Rossmo’s art expertly captures a new and reinvented mythology within the DC Universe, presenting a peaceful culture that truly takes pride in their appearances - and tries to instill a love of who they are into their youth.
It's heartwarming and a bit of an eye-opener that looks to address familiar issues within earthling culture here in the 21st Century. Love who you are, don't be ashamed!
At the same time, the books dual narrative also sees J'onn's true form exposed following an explosive car accident! Here, a man who was always taught to love who he was is desperate to hide his true form in the face of possible life threatening persecution from his own partner.
It is a fiery, beautiful follow-up that sees Steve Orlando's timely, heartfelt plot break new ground and set the Martian Manhunter against a whole new set of issues - and we're extremely eager to see where things are going to go from here!
Martian Manhunter is quickly shaping up to be a seriously topical cannon in the DC Comics arsenal! Not only is it exploring a side of the DC Universe in a new and exciting light, but it's unafraid to address one of the biggest issues that permeate our modern day society!
Orlando and Rossmo continue to be at the top of their game here, and we highly recommend that this masterful tome end up on every fan's must read list in 2019!
Rating: 5/5 - "A fascinating and topical reinvention that breaks new ground with ease!"
