Justice League of America To Feature Martian Manhunter Back-Ups

Body

Good new for fans of the Martian Manhunter who may have been unhappy with him getting booted from Justice League.

Yes, he will be headlining the upcoming Justice League of America, but DC Comics has also announced that Geoff Johns will write a Martian Manhunter back-up starting with Justice League of America #2, with Matt Kindt on art chores.

Matt Kindt offered, "I can't tell you how excited I am to be working on this. I grew up with the JLA and Manhunter was one of the few characters I felt had so much more un-mined potential than most of the other characters. His powers and abilities really lend themselves to the kind of stories I love to tell. And working with Geoff? That's like the cherry on top. But more than just being fun from the fan/reader part of me, we're really working to make the back-ups be an essential part of the reading experience. We're treating the back-up like the harmony to the main melody of the issue."

Justice League of America #2 hits March 6th, 2013 from Johns and David Finch.
