Complete your My Favorite Martian shrine with this classic comic collection!
So, you've seen all the episodes of My Favorite Martian and know everything about Uncle Martin and Tim O'Hara, right?
Guess again! There were not only a handful of comic book adventures of the hapless duo here in America, via Gold Key Comics, but also some overseas from England's TV21 that may have snuck in under your stratosphere. Thanks to Hermes Press, and their hardcover reprint series of the vintage My Favorite Martian comics, you can catch up on those long-lost misadventures of everyone's stranded antennae-headed alien when our collection comes out this Wednesday.
My Favorite Martian: The Complete Series-Volume One represents the first five issues of the Gold Key comic book that ran from 1964 and 1965, while the upcoming second volume will also feature the English TV21 comics. Not only does it have artwork by Russ Manning, Dan Spiegel and Mike Arens, but also stories by Paul S. Newman and Bob Ogle, but a plethora of rare photos and memorabilia reproduced in the back. We're not just talking photos that haven't seen the light of day in decades-we're presenting previously unpublished set photos, many in color, that have been thought lost since the 1960s!
This out of the world library edition comes with a sweet retro design to best present Uncle Martin's long-lost adventures! So if you're a My Favorite Martian fan, or even just a huge fan of classic TV, check this out.
And just to make sure we spread the Martian love to everyone, we'll be offering a special My Favorite Martian comic book on Free Comic Book Day-May 5, 2012. Keep an eye out for it next year.

About the Author - SuperginraiX
SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
