What is the best Martian Manhunter comics to read? I want to read more comics about him, but i don't really know where to start. What do you recommend me? :) Sorry, i don't know if this topic was made before. I search but i didn't find anything :/

I posted this in another thread a long while ago, but here's my top picks:

  1. Brightest Day (He had one of the major story lines in this series, it really gets into the mind of MM.)
  2. Martian Manhunter: Others Among Us (What if J'onn's not alone?)
  3. I recommend the entirety of Justice League International, but vol. 5 has the best MM story.
  4. Final Crisis Companion (The funeral of Martian Manhunter.)
  5. JLA: Trial By Fire (What if Martian Manhunter loses his fear of fire? A fun, and interesting story that really digs into the Martian pyrophobia.)
  6. Martian Manhunter: American Secrets (Pretty good, not the best, but it's interesting to see Martian Manhunter solve a mystery in the 50's.)
  7. Showcase Presents: Martian Manhunter vols. 1 and 2 (Fun silver age Martian Manhunter stories, no real emotional value, but like I said, they're fun, and they show how MM was originally written.)
  8. Stormwatch (He was never really a main character to the series, but he was pretty badass throughout.)

I'd also recommend John Ostrander's Martian Manhunter series, it's out of print, but it's worth tracking down.

@WonderHunter: Some of the old JLI stuff is a lot of fun. :)

In Brightest Day he was awesome and there you could easily learn his origin and the way he thinks and deals with things.
