1989 Animal Man #9 Original Cover Art by Brian Bolland

Click To Enlarge

Back in December, I rummaged through the various galleries at, which was by no means a chore. I found a lot of Wonder Woman material, thanks to his three-plus year stint as her cover artist, but Martian Manhunter pickings were pretty slim. Hoping to wrangle a theme day for one of my favorite artists, I break from my norms and offer a published cover. It's a great image, and is seen in the purity of black and white. The story is certainly one of J'Onn's best guest appearances, and I hope to cover it if I can ever get my blogs synchronized to 1989.

Does animal man have an arch enemy that you know of?

That would require research, because I'm drawing a blank.

Sweet! I've never seen a Bolland Martian Manhunter outside of that awesome trade cover...whose name I'm blanking on...Secret Origins?

Indeed. J'Onn was also on the most recent edition of "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow."
