Now this is just awesome. Reminds me of Mahnke, who on certain days is my favorite Manhunter artist. Manhunter hasn't been involved in enough smash the crap out of stuff superbrawls. Superman has on every few months, The Hulk makes a carreer out of them and Invincible gets one at least every couple issues. I long for the days when J'Onn was punching out possessed Capt. Marvels left and right. (well at least once.)

I'm answering this comment right now because I had planned to throw out some more quick pin-up posts before a substantial item previously scheduled for 7 was released. However, looking at it again, this piece is just too darn fine to cover up in haste. You're right about the Mahnke look, but with clear trauma in his facial expression echoing DeMatteis and Ostrander scripts (though not often properly conveyed by their artists.) I now regret offering this at the top of the page for only 13 hours, it's so nice. I doubt I'll push back the other post, but the fact I even considered it after my recent lax schedule is a credit to Kirby's fantastic effort here. I might have to recall this for a far future Fanatical Fiction...
