Writing for the Spartanburg, S.C., Herald-Journal, Jason Spencer celebrates the return of the Little Comic That Could, DC’s Manhunter:
Manhunter, published monthly by DC Comics, has been canceled twice, only to be restored each time — first, for a five-issue run and, now, indefinitely.
It’s a smart series, potentially the birth of a new subgenre in superheroics. Plenty of writers have tried dark, gritty crime dramas, but Manhunter scribe Mark Andreyko is the first to pull off well-executed courtroom scenes issue after issue.
Likewise, restoring Manhunter to monthly publication — issue No. 30 hits stands Wednesday, and then the series returns permanently in July — is a smart move on DC’s part.
Spencer goes on to call Andreyko a talented writer who “surely will be one of the greats of the newest generation of comic scribes.”
