Tom Valente is a commercial artist whose done work for places like Cracked, and more recently contributed to the Justice League of America Rittenhouse Archives sketch card series. Thanks to the Martian Manhunter Fotolog, I was directed to his blog, which offered up two illustrations of the Manhunter from Mars.

More Martian Manhunter goodness. Here's a sketch of him enjoying his favorite snack, Oreos, not those imitations, "Chocos", he has to eat in the comics. And look how happy he is to have the real thing.

That is so darn cute. I'm guessing the shadows are being cast from the television he's probably watching. :)

I'm thinking vintage. Twilight Zone? Outer Limits? Forbidden Planet? He seems happy, so maybe it's just a mindless episode of ALF?

I like to think he would enjoy Newman-O's.

Maybe he's picking up some detective tips by watching Dragnet? Or Hawaii 5-0? :)

If it is Twilight Zone, it's probably the "To Serve Man" episode and I bet he finds it amusing. Ahh, the 80's. Good times.

Hey everyone! I just saw this blog recently and I wanted to pop in to say thanks for posting up my sketch; I'm glad you all liked it. And if you'd like, you can check out the finished color version over on my blog.

Btw, I would say he's watching "My Favorite Martian" re-runs.
