    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Nov 27, 2019

    This whole issue is a true testament to the teamwork on display with Orlando and Rossmo. This wouldn't work as uniquely well as it does without them. I'm not even sure anyone else would have thought of doing this the way that they did. It was really cool to see the comics medium borrow some aesthetics from the gaming world. We see a lot of back and forth between comics and movies due to how similar they are, and I'm not at all trying to insinuate that this is the first time we've seen a comic implore some visual cues familiar to video games, but it was a nice change of pace and the perfect metaphor for what J'onn is going through and how he had to overcome it. Not to mention it was executed so well. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Dec 6, 2019

    Martian Manhunter #10 hits a narrative skid this issue and is over-reliant on well-worn storytelling tropes to be truly effective. It's payoff isn't necessarily earned as a result, cheapening it as a reading experience. With only two issues to go, it hopefully isn't too late to recover before the big finale. It would be a shame if such an inventive, imaginative series were to end with a whimper instead of a bang. Read Full Review
