So is J'onn Mr. Biscuits or is Mr. Biscuits another Martian? I sincerely hope this series does well. DC really needs to do more with Martian Manhunter and build him up as a top tier character. He's always sorta taken a backseat to the other JLers.

J'onn isn't Mr Biscuits.

My main concern is that it doesn't get cancelled due to low sales.

...are you complaining?

Yeah not sure why that's a problem

Agreed, definitely better than paying 3.99 or 3.50 for a book... maybe even 4.99 or 5.99 for a damn single small book

I actually saw that for the Darth Vader series by Marvel and I couldn't believe my eyes.

I like me some Vader, but I'm not paying that much for a comic period, unless it's made of gold (though at that point it's more a trophy, so...)

To be fair, he's in no worse shape than Aquaman, or any GL not named Hal. He's not in terrible company, but I would still love to see him get a major push.

See that's actually where I disagree. Especially if we look at recent years, its evident that Aquaman and the other Lanterns have gotten significantly more attention than Martian Manhunter. Aquaman is one of the characters people say the New 52 has benefitted the most.

Likewise, the very nature of the Green Lantern titles, what with the main title, Green Lantern Corps, New Guardians, Red Lanterns, and now even Omega Men (though its not a GL title) sort of ensured that almost all of the Lanterns got their spotlight, with each starring in their own title. While that now may not be the case, the other Lanterns are still appearing in their own books.

On top of that, there's also the fact that historically, there's been a much firmer sense of who Aquaman and the individual Lanterns are on their own. Aquaman has his own environment and a recognizable (although small) roster of villains, namely Black Manta and Ocean Master. The Lanterns have their own identity within the GLC that DC has built up over the years.

Martian Manhunter, on the other hand, has been bouncing around from title to title trying to find his place. I actually supported putting him in Stormwatch, as it allowed him to build an identity outside of the League, but the execution was lacking. And, historically, there hasn't really been a firm sense of Martian Manhunter's identity outside of the JLA. Hopefully now they can focus on building that up. Introduce a set of memorable villains and build up his rogues gallery. The only ones I really recognize at all are Malefic and Human Flame, and they aren't exactly notable.

Oh if we're talking recent years, yeah, but even that only applies to comic fans. Aquaman still has the reek of Super Friends and Family Guy jokes to contend with outside that circle and outside that circle, Kyle and Guy are relatively unknown. I mean, I don't think most people outside of comic fans could name GL Villains outside of Sinestro if even that, and Ocean Master is only a slight possibility after Manta.

I mean, I agree now, that there's a big opportunity for MMH here, and like Aquaman, I hope it does more for him.

This looks like it really could be something. I think this will be his moment to shine. You guys seem very worried about this book's sales, but everyone seems to be on board, even more so than the other DCyou titles. I think this book will do just fine

J'onn isn't Mr Biscuits.

seems to me J'onn has exiled himself, and is calling himself mr biscuits, because of his encounter with the white martian.

I've read the first issue. He's still playing at being a Superhero. He's not Mr Biscuits.

@dondave: as have I, it is not really clear who mr biscuits is. I still think it could be J'onn, as glimpse into the near future or something.
