    What asshole was out there saying that Martian Manhunter couldn't hold a book on his own?  Oh yeah, that was me.  Well, that should go to show you how much this book rocks because I hate to be proven wrong and that's exactly what Rob Williams has done with this issue.  It's an amazingly told and drawn story that is action packed, but will still totally give you the feels.  What more could you ask for?  While we're still dealing with a subplot that isn't as interesting "yet" as our Main Martian, the rest will more than make up for it.  Go check it out.

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Jul 16, 2015

    In conclusion, this series proves why the Martian Manhunter should be an A-list superhero. Hes finally found a place among the big leagues after being displaced by the new 52 relaunch, a gritty, dark and intelligent series that looks to be heading in some very cool directions. While not all the sub-plots gel right now, if they can all come together then this could really be one of the break out hits of the DC You relaunch and a series remembered for years to come.

    I'm not always a fan of stories predicated on the notion of "Everything you thought you knew about this character was a lie," but so far Martian Manhunter is making a strong case for its complete overhaul of the character's nature and origins. Read Full Review

    This issue drives home the feeling that, even only two issues into the series, this is one of those underrated gems of a series that I hope does not get overlooked. Williams and Barrows are on the same page creatively and they are cooking up a solid sci-fi superhero mystery. I've always been partial to the character but he's growing on me even more and this issue shows the potential that exists with him as a leading man. Taking J'onn out of the context of a team and placing him directly in the middle of a mega war, as dark as it sounds, is kind of fun and I'll be back for Martian Manhunter #3. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Robert Reed Jul 16, 2015

    Martian Manhunter #2 builds on its predecessor in some fun ways, with developments that reveal both character and allow for some great action. The script by Rob Williams has some solid twists, and the art by Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira, and Gabe Eltaeb makes for an atmospheric read. The one thing holdingMartian Manhunterback is that it hasn't quite found its own selling point. There are a number of great science fiction books on comic book racks, andMartian Manhunter may need to draw more heavily on the special qualities of its cast to stand out from the pack.

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jul 18, 2015

    Martian Manhunter is exactly the kind of comic that DC has needed for the past 4 years. It's confident enough in its characters and ideas that it doesn't feel the need to pander but at the same time it's not adversarial towards its audience. Most of all it feels genuinely excited to be working with a character as weird and versatile as the Martian Manhunter, viewing his broad history as a canvas to paint on rather than a condemned building to destroy.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 20, 2015

    Any comic where there's a Martian in a strange mask calling itself Mr. Biscuits would automatically grab my attention, but Williams, Barrows and Ferreira have done so by doing more than just providing weirdness for the sake of being weird. Two issues in, and I'm settling in for the long haul. This creative team has something bigger in mind, and I'm ready to see just where that goes. Read Full Review
