He may have been unbeatable in the '40s, but has Captain Midnight met his match in the modern era? When a recon mission goes horribly wrong, Captain Midnight finds himself pitted against an old foe, dozens of violent Wraiths, and . . . bloodthirsty polar bears?! He's the man who always has a plan, but it's going to take a helluva lot of resourcefulness to get out of this mess alive!

    We have been introduced to all the characters on the playing field, well not all but for now most of them, the premise of their animosity has been determined and some wonderfully diverse and interesting characterization is going on. Joshua continues to show us his skills as a writer and story teller here are really among the top in the industry. Along with Dagnino's magnificent interiors we've got a really good start for Dark Horse's Super Hero line of books to take hold make the other stand up and take notice. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Sep 25, 2013

    I had questioned the casual nature of Captain Midnight suddenly appearing in the present but as we get to see him in action more along with some flashbacks, we're getting a sense of the bigger picture. The more I read of this series, the more I want. With the slight reveal we get here, you'll want to know more. I didn't know anything about Captain Midnight before this series and it's great seeing this character come to life in this series. The tease for the next issue promises a change in story that should offer some nice variation to the series. Too bad we have to wait a month for more. Read Full Review

    Statues And Superheroes - Steven Viscido Sep 26, 2013

    All that said, I think that the overall story was fairly good, and I enjoyed it well enough. The confusing parts, and the elements that bore further explanation, detracted from the story a little bit, but in the end it wasn't bad. The artwork was quite strong, and actually a bit better than the story. I will try issue 4 at least, before deciding whether to put this series on my permanent pull list. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 25, 2013

    Any new series is bound to have its hiccups and for me there might be one or two for this book, but not enough that I would walk away from it. For me I'd rather get to know the characters through their actions on their adventures rather than their strange Indiana Jones moments after the action is done. It could just be me of course, but overall I'm still really enjoying the title and will continue to do so. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Sep 30, 2013

    It is tough to bring a 1940's property into the 21st century. Joshua Williamson and Fernando Dagnino have done the best they can to modernize a long dead hero in Captain Midnight. Still, their introductory story arc needs some improvement. If the focus remains on the hero's attempts to adjust to his modern surroundings, this could be a great comic to read. Read Full Review
