The responsibilities of the Midnight Shift can take its toll on even the bravest. What trials has Lt. Weaver endured and has he reached his breaking point?

    Overall, while the meat of the big picture is clearly still to come, the development of the characters and the well-structured variety of the monster of the week format is working extremely well for Gotham by Midnight thus far. A wonderfully scripted book brought to life by some of the finest visuals on the shelves today, this is a shadowy corner of the DC Universe that deserves a hell of a lot more light to be shed on it. So take a little peek under the rock that is Gotham By Midnight. I guarantee you wont be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Gotham By Midnight#7 stands as another issue from a titleon top of its game. It's becoming difficult to find new ways to praise this series which expertly weaves character and horror. Ray Fawkes has a great flow to his storytelling that allows readers to simply sit back and enjoy the narrative, and Juan Ferreyra is making the series his own with his creative layouts and nuanced character work.Gotham By Midnight #7 is an enjoyable read for both new and old readers, and well worth a look.

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jul 24, 2015

    Maybe one of the best things about Gotham By Midnight is that it's big on Gotham atmosphere without feeling the need to pander (look everybody: a book in which Harley Quinn hasn't made an appearance!). Even though I love the brief flashback cameo from Gordon (who wouldn't?), hopefully this disconnect will last because this is definitely a crew that deserves to stand on its own feet. The Midnight Shift continues to contribute its own interesting layer to the Gotham mythos and if you're skipping out on this book due to its lack of bat-action, you're cheating yourself of some very fine comic book entertainment.

    Gotham by Midnight has another strong supernatural installment but one that's also layering in some great character material. I've long liked the Corrigan character so seeing his struggle with what happened to Sister Justine here is welcome, as is his strong Specter side moments. Weaver's story really has me intrigued to see how it unfolds as well, as Fawkes makes it a thoroughly engaging storyline that will have bigger implications. But the best thing about this book is Ferreyra's artwork as he does some fantastic design work here. The side views of the houses for a couple of pages with events playing inside is strikingly beautiful, especially with the colors used, and just the sense of hopelessness that comes from so many panels and characters, notably Weaver, is amazing to watch. His artwork is adding another defining chapter to the look and feel of this book and it's one that brings Fawkes' storyline to life in an even bigger and better way. Read Full Review

    Juan Ferreyra is making himself into a star artist on Gotham by Midnight. The smooth, clean lines he uses to illustrate his characters and backgrounds are one thing, but his eerie, water color-like coloring is something else entirely. Read Full Review

    I liked the art as with the previous issue and it was good to see the Spectre in action again. Read Full Review

    I don't know if this monster of the week type story is something that is going to attract more readers, but it certainly won't hurt the readership it already has because the creative team does some real fun stuff with it.  I just hope that this formula isn't repeated too much because I could seriously see it hurting this series if it's overused.  With amazing art all the way through and the arrival of what I think is the best part of this book, it was a really fun and eye catching read.

    While this is a good issue of Gotham by Midnight, it tends to be overly mellow at times. This does hurt the story, but not so much that it remainsenjoyable. When it comes to the bigger issues at large, it does leave a bit open at the end so that things will continue to grow and hopefully open up the world more. Read Full Review

    That was awesome! Sustained tension throughout, and this was the first time since Templesmith left the book that I loved the artwork. In fact Ferreyra trumps Templesmith by finally getting the character models consistent throughout. I love how Fawkes gets the various forces (internal investigations, supernatural demons, the Spectre himself) that threaten our character to converge, and I love how he depicts them all as painfully broken people trying to do their best, and shoulder loss. How could working in that division of the Police force do anything else but crush you? And the concept of the apathy demon seemed super creepy to just plants into you from the floor and you allow it to take your life...simple but so creepy!
