Paul Rivoche JLA-Z #3 Martian Manhunter Pin-Up (1/04)
Over a year ago, I ran this image alongside Five Reasons To Love the Manhunter from Mars, the flavor text I submitted for use on J'Onn J'Onzz's entry in Comics Should Be Good's Top 50 (or so) characters at the DC and Marvel Comics Groups, at which he ranked #11. I wasn't as good at scanning back then, and never felt I had done the image justice, so I've long wanted to represent it in a better light.
Paul Rivoche is an illustrator who has dabbled in comics, mostly on single images. He's also done design work for animation, including the New Batman Adventures, Justice League, and the New Frontier. I love the man's art, which comes across like Jim Steranko by way of Bruce Timm, and this is one of my favorite Martian Manhunter pieces. You can view more at ROCKETFICTION.
