At the DC World’s Finest panel at New York Comic Con, writer Steve Orlando talked about his new upcoming Martian Manhunter comic with Riley Rossmo for DC Comics. And showed off some of the insides… and Bleeding Cool’s Madeline Richiutto was there.
Orlando told the crowd “Riley and I work in an open format… I don’t do panels, I let him do what he wants… I was like “why don’t we open with a splash” and he came back with this 20-panel page.”
With Orlando adding “Martian shapeshifting means you never know what body part you’re looking at… its a good Batman Damned joke, right?”
And that Manhunter is still hiding in Detective John Jones’ life in issue 1…
