2010 The Martian Manhunter Archives Volume 5 Table of Contents by Tom Hartley

Click To Load PDF


This final Silver Age faux Archive Edition features the origin and last emissions from the Diabolu Idol-Head (including one of the best, Iwangis-- Creature King.) The international crime organization Vulture is introduced, as is its faceless leader Mr. V, necessitating J'onn J'onzz's assumption of a new alter ego, playboy Marco Xavier. Most of Professor Arnold Hugo's appearances are here, including my personal favorite, "The Giants Who Slept 1,000,000 Years." Zook appears sporadically, but is out of place as the series' tone shifts. Miller's stories become more grim, action oriented, violent, and skewed toward older readers. Joe Certa's art is more contemporary and sophisticated. All in all though, these are some of the finest (and a few of the foulest) Manhunter from Mars stories by this thirteen year creative team. For individual listings, download the PDF here.

Thanks for sharing this link, but unfortunately it seems to be down... Does anybody have a mirror or another source? Please answer to my post if you do!

I would appreciate if a staff member here at idol-head.blogspot.com could post it.

Oliver, I checked all the links this morning, and everything seems to be working. Maybe you need to download Adobe Reader for the PDF?

William, the material above was produced by Tom Hartley, and used on this blog with his express consent. I'm afraid I lack the authority to extend that right to you, so you'll have to reach Tom directly.

I didn't create this particular post's primary content, so it would be up Tom Hartley.
