The Martian Manhunter has had a long and twisted publishing history already, but this maxi-series re-imagining could be a good read.
“No matter what you know about J’onn J’onnz, you’re not prepared for this. The acclaimed team of writer Steve Orlando and artist Riley Rossmo (BATMAN/ THE SHADOW, BATMAN: NIGHT OF THE MONSTER MEN) reteam for a reinvention of the Manhunter from Mars in this twisted, unexpected series. Back on Mars, J’onn was about as corrupt as a law officer can be, and when a reckoning comes for his entire society, he’ll get a second chance he doesn’t want or deserve. One shocking murder, and an unexpected fragment of the Mars he lost, will change his life-and the course of the Earth-forever.”
