2009 Ravager and Miss Martian "Prelude To The Pie Incident" by Bill Walko

M'gann M'orzz is the angel on my shoulder. She asks me why I don't post the latest chapter of the "1967 Manhunter from Mars movie" serial I finished yesterday. Rose Wilson is the devil on my shoulder. She reminds me that I spent three hours last week just trying to pin down my choice of Keenan Wynn as Professor Mark Erdel, then another couple or three hours writing the longest installment to date. M'gann says I'm already done with the shorter, tighter, more action packed follow-up. Rose says after all that work last week, I only got one comment, and that I should have stuck with my original plan to punish this act of disloyalty amongst the insurgent rabble by simply breaking the first post into three bite-sized edits over the course of this week. M'gann points out that would have been rude, childish, and would create animosity amongst the blog's readership. Rose points out that if I had followed through with my vindictive act, I would have had more time to study for the ball-busting Pharmacology test I squeeked by on through the grace of God, deductive reasoning, and plain stupid ass luck. M'gann M'orzz misses her Monday. Rose Wilson figures that would be a good day to cross over with another couple of blogs for a rare excursion into the Golden Age.

Then Rose spiked the ball by reminding me I have four tests next week, including one with a required 90% for all students to continue in the program.

The artist's deviantART gallery is worth checking out, with Comics Alliance and Every Day Is Like Wednesday singing his praises at length. Alternately, there's that "1967 Manhunter from Mars Movie: Flashback Sequence" I was whining about...

Rose Wilson; Foil to Miss Martian and alternate reality barely legal love interest to Martian Manhunter.

Wait! What? Where? Why? Ew!

Hey, I love the site! J'onn is one of my favorite supes and getting all this history info is so delicious.

I don't know if you would be interesting in some personal MM art projects:

Awhile back I did a redesign for MM that showed up on a couple of blogs (, notably)

and I recently did a super quick martian manhunter watercolor over on my webcomic:

Keep up the good work! Now I have to do research to figure out who I really prefer: The Bloodworms of Mars or The Swarm.

I'm always interested in Martian Manhunter material, and if you're game, I'll run those pics here!

"Foil to Miss Martian and alternate reality barely legal love interest to Martian Manhunter."

Ohh! Oh!! I actually know the answer to this one!

And why didn't I pick up on the jailbait angle?

(Hint, Frank: think somewhat recent direct-to-DVD animated movie.)

P.S., regarding March Madness:

I would like to add a write-in vote under "Bird vs. Insect" for a representative of the Mammal family, The Human Squirrel.

Diabolu Frank said...

"Crisis On Two Worlds?" Still haven't seen it.

I wouldn't be fair to pit the Human Squirrel against either of these two. Right now, I'm planning to pit H.S. against Gorilla Grodd, along the lines of Squirrel Girl vs. Doctor Doom.
