2008 "50s Martian Manhunter B n W" by Marty Salsman



One of the truly unsung heroes of the DC universe, he's been around since 1955 predating the Silver-Age by just one year. I'm truly heartbroken DC has decided to kill off this character. On a brighter note the young writer and fellow deviantART member Dahila Mockery(give her a shout, she's done a great job) and myself have decided to pay tribute to this awesome DC hero! Set in the mid-1950's before he's even met any other super-heroes, he was a detective for the police and a private investigator par excellant. These are just three of the characters our versatile hero will portray in the story. Character Study-Pen & Ink only

Until I got that email from Shag, I didn't know about you either, David. I'm a fan of the Squad, and will be adding you to my blogrolls shortly. I also cover Vixen sporadically at the Justice League Detroit blog, plus Bronze Tiger & Amanda Waller at DC Bloodlines, so welcome to the insta-family.

We do indeed accept original submissions to this blog. One of my regular contributor will have a post up on Monday, in fact. Do you need an email address?

it's listed on the Suicide Squad blog for future reference:
