    As a new #1 Midnight Tiger definitely does what its supposed to, it introduces the characters with a glimpse at the relationship between Gavin and his father and sets up theand teases our hero's first supervillain. Most of all you it manages to has me excited for #2 and the $0.99 pricetag makes it difficult to not recommend. Read Full Review

    Now, after all of that praise, I must warn you, some of the dialogue borders on stereotype, in conjunction with the obligatory threat of urban street gangs that Gavin has to avoid on a day to day basis. It's a tried and true method for delivering minority characters to the masses, so I can't fault Feenstra and Height for taking that approach. Hopefully,however, as the Tiger matures, so will the book and we'll get to see our hero move away from the clich into more adventurous territory. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 13, 2014

    What's also notable about this issue and series is that it's kid friendly. Granted I wouldn't hand it to a little kid, but middle school and up is definitely a great fit. It really reminds me of the comics I read in high school and those are still some of my favorite issues to re-read and think about today. Hopefully Midnight Tiger will be that type of issue for a younger generation. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Jun 30, 2014

    This is a great first issue that introduces the reader to the threats that Gavin will have to deal with when he dons the mask of the Midnight Tiger. Gavin is a great lead character that has a wit about himself and has a great focus on ridding his city of crime. This title looks promising and it is definitely one that will provide some stellar action scenes! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 13, 2014

    Clocking in at twenty-two pages, "Midnight Tiger" #1 simply does not have enough substance to keep from feeling thin and incomplete. Instead of presenting the next "Invincible" or even "Blue Beetle," this is just another story about a kid with powers. It's a nice, comfortable celebration of comic books, but it spends too much time celebrating to solidify around the core potential. Read Full Review
