    One of the best parts of this series is the super scientist himself, Captain Midnight. His power is his brain. Hes an inventor who can throw a solid punch. Hes a futurist from WW2 who has just come into the future he was predicting. I enjoyed his inventiveness in cannibalising the jet he stole into something completely new. I hope he gets to play with more toys down the line. Hes only been back in the world 72 hours and is full tilt into action. I look forward to seeing him come to realize where his place is in the 21st century. Plus, there are bears. Read Full Review

    Captain Midnight #2"s able to keep the level going while adding some more depth and even improving on the art on its action panels. A lot has been unraveled here as we see more about the characters, the evil behind everything that's happening and what would seem to be next for our hero. The plane has taken flight but it can also be said that it hasn't reached enough altitude yet. Going towards the end of this book, it seems there would be some heavy development in the next issue and that I'll look forward to. Read Full Review

    Statues And Superheroes - Steven Viscido Sep 14, 2013

    Overall, this was a reasonably good story with very good art, and it definitely held my interest.  The opening story arc supposedly concludes on issue 3, and I can't guarantee how much longer I will keep up with this series, but it's good enough that I will certainly at least get the next issue... and I may well put it on my pull list after that.

    So, all in all if I were to tell you whether or not you should read this issue, I would undoubtedly say “Yes!” It's a fun read full of action, invented vehicles, and hot women (don't judge…hot women sell in the comic market!). When I'm free on a Friday night and my buddy says “Hey man, c'mon out with us” I say “I'm on my way” The same goes for this issue. Give it a shot! Read this issue! I think you'll like it! —RLA Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Aug 28, 2013

    Captain Midnight is an above average reintroduction to an old hero. The groundwork has been laid out, we know our character, and the evil is defined. There starts to be a little punch to the story near the conclusion, so it looks like all of the necessary work is done and the story can really take off. Captain Midnight definitely warrants a return trip, but it doesn't knock your socks off just yet. Read Full Review

    Things have been strange in the world of Captain Midnight, and they dont appear to be stopping anytime soon. The book is on the rise and is forming a cool cast of characters; now, if they could just fix the main one... Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 28, 2013

    I'm digging this series and I think it's a smart move to have this arc end with the next issue. It's been interesting, but with the easy comparison to Captain America it's better to move forward and start building original stories for readers to get interested in. I'll be sticking around enjoying the punchy adventure of Captain Midnight, that's for damn sure. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Aug 29, 2013

    Fernando Dagnino keeps the script moving with rich and vivid characters who look like they could step off the page. Dagnino's eyes really hammer home emotions, even if the overall issue left me a bit lukewarm. Read Full Review
