Spinning out of the pages of the New 52 Martian Manhunter ongoing series as part of Villain’s Month! Hey, I'm sure May has its fair share of fools, as well. This one was done quick and rough, partly because I'm either having trouble with DC's garbage late '90s paper stock, or my scanner is finally crapping out after a decade of hardy service.

Fools or not, This is a series I would pick up if you wrote and drew it. I'm really interested in Ma'alefa'ak's story. He should have his own book.

When I first read it, I thought you invented a third son named "Ma'al" and I didn't put two and two together. Then I was pretending that if Ma'alefa'ak was a middle child, that would explain a lot.

I believed that for a second! I so miss (the proper) J'onn having a book of his own.
