Advance-solicited; on sale September 2 • 200 pg, FC, $19.99 US
The only classic Martian Manhunter appearance this month, but it's a great one from 1988. Still a favorite of mine, even if the overall story was only so-so. J'Onn's interactions with Green Lantern John Stewart are priceless, and I really wish their relationship had been expanded afterward.

FINAL CRISIS AFTERMATH: RUN! #4
Written by Matthew Sturges
Art by Freddie E. Williams II
Cover by KAKO
In this issue, someone dies! Actually, in this issue, tons of people die! If you thought RUN! was full of trashy humor and unnecessary violence before this issue – you ain’t seen nothing yet! We cause more property damage and hideous disfigurement in the first half of this issue than any other comic you’ll read this year (besides RUN! #5 and #6, because those are pretty ridiculous too). Join in the fun!
