Idle-Head of Diabolu, Vol. III



The good news is that I have coverage and scans for issues #4, 5, and 8 of the 2006 Martian Manhunter mini-series ready to publish, so that will resume next week. Doom Patrol #4 and Sword of Aquaman #44 are also set, but since the latter ends in a two-parter, I'd hate to create a two week wait. Wonder Woman #4 is not formatted correctly, and I'm missing scans for Breach #4. All this is to say, given I have a major school project this week, none of those will publish until next week. However, I've got a Miss Martian post for tomorrow, Malefic art for Tuesday, and the last chapter of The Tenth Circle on Weekday, so today is my only lapse point.

How about this... an old draft of my long in gestation "Martian Detectionary" table of contents, the "Martian Manhunter Encyclopedia?"

Holy cow.

How long did it take to put this together?

I like the cross-references, by the way.

I don't remember. Based on the links redirecting rather than popping up in a new tab/window, I figure I last edited this a couple of years ago. Another of the many laborious, abandoned projects in my queue...
