I love the idea of Martian Manhunter being somewhat addicted to Chocos cookies (the Oreos of the DC Universe). I would love-love-love to work on an all-ages MM comic. I feel he is such a wonderful character to spark the imagination of kids and giving them a gateway into reading comics.

LOL "somewhat" is an understatement; there was a Revelations comic released during his stint with the JLI and well... yeah... J'onn had problems! XD I would read said comic, especially seeing the debacle they're putting him through with the revamp. *sighs* I don't understand how DC can treat such a lovable and talented character the way that they have...

People ask me why I keep drawing so many DC characters if I hate the New 52 so much and my answer is that I feel like I'm drawing them BECAUSE I hate the New 52 so much. DCs characters used to have a sense of charm about them. All of that charm is gone now. All. Of. It.

I've said it once, I'll say it again: I love so many of DCs characters, but I hate what they've been publishing the last 5-10 years--especially the New 52. They've taken everything charming about their characters and their world and flushed it down the toilet.

Sure there a few title here and there (mini-series, specials, etc.) that might be cool to buy, but I said I was not going to spend any of my hard earned $$$ on DC Comics anymore and instead of making excuses for one or two books I'm just sticking to it across the board. That's the easiest I think.

Regardless, I'll still keep drawing them as I remember them. When they were fun to read regardless of how silly or far-fetched the stories could get. Hell, that's what made them so great to begin with. Now...well...

I agree. I fell into that trap. I HATED the New 52 when I found out that they took J'onn out of the founding 7; I think I had a heart attack! But, then they announce that he would be leading the new JLA and I was like, "okay, cool; I'll read that". So, I fell for it... and wasted my money on these issues... and cried. Don't get me wrong; I loved his new attitude to an extent. But, just like you said, they took away all of his charm and awkwardness and love. I loved him because he loved Ore... *clears throat* Chocos just like me. Even in the JLU cartoon, he was all serious and whatnot but then he would go and play Rumblebots with Flash! I miss that J'onn; where is that J'onn...? *sniffs*

... Okay... done with dealing with my feels... so, anyway; I think we had a slight misunderstanding, which is fine LOL! I meant to say that I would read YOUR Martian Manhunter comic; because I know that you would treat him right!

I loved the holiday episode where J'onn went home with Clark for Christmas. Great MM stuff in that episode.

Yes! One of my favorites!

Is Tiny Titans still going on? Your Martie Manhunter comic would be a great back up feature in it before growing into it's own title, with a C'hp back up comic it it. I don't know who they'd have do the C'hp comic. I'm sure there's some talking animal guy out there who'd do it. Ahem.

Art & Franco have a Tiny Titans mini series coming out this year. But DC doesn't have much of a sense of humor about itself. TT is a proven success and therefor not much of a stretch, but an all-ages MM comic...never gonna happen. Oh well...

Justice League: Weekends! 

I agree, a character like Martian Manhunter who feels a bit overpowered in the main universe could present some interesting possibilities to a youth focused series with a slice of comedy potential.

I'd put him in charge of the SUPER BUDDIES if I had any say about it! MM, Booster, Beetle, Elongated Man, Fire & Ice...that'd be the book for me! =o)
