    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Glen Davis Jul 7, 2013

    A collection of three short feature in Dark Horse Presents gets right to the action, with a refreshing lack of self doubt and self pity. I really hope the villain Xog, King of Saturn appears soon. Read Full Review

    Get ready for some high flying adventure and mystery as Josh Williamson and Dark Horse bring Captain Midnight into the present for new adventures. There is a big mystery as to how and why he's arrived. This is something that will be uncovered throughout the series and watching it all unfold will be interesting. This issue collects the three-part story originally seen in DARK HORSE PRESENTS. After reading, you'll be ready and waiting for the release of next month's issue #1. This is your chance to get in on the ground floor to see what the future holds for this classic character. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Matt A Jun 20, 2013

    Captain Midnight #0 serves as both an exciting mystery and a unique origin story, which leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Looks like Dark Horse has a hit on their hands. I can't wait to read the next issue. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Your Friendly Neighborhood Brady Jun 21, 2013

    The hook of this top secret mission and how it is still relevant in the present intrigues me. I wonder how long the cynical government Agent Jones and the fan boy-pilot Rick Marshall will underestimate our hero. This is a great primer for a series I hope continues to explore the present and the past of Super Genius Captain Midnight and his Secret Squadron. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Randall Austin Jun 19, 2013

    My fellow Ungrownups and Geeks, Captain Midnight #0 is definitely a unique treat. Normally, I'd say that Dark Horse Comics is usually a hit or miss. In this case, I'd say that this is a hit…but not a 9 or 10 hit. More like a rating of 7 or 8. This means that I would reccommend picking up this issue to see if you like it. If you like it, then go for the other issues. Let me know what you think!—Ran Read Full Review

    "Captain Midnight" #0 is a very solid start from Williamson and crew. The issue is rounded out with a sneak peek at issue #1, due out next month. All in all, "Captain Midnight" is a relatively fresh story with familiarity that makes the introductory story more palatable. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Tommy Lutz Jun 18, 2013

    Captain Midnight #0 will appeal to a lot of people, but it may not be for everyone. This is not your typical superhero, not your typical war hero, and not your typical continuation of a story. It is fun to read and carries a lot of nostalgia for certain readers, and is full of mystery for others. Unlike some #0 issues though, this issue seems to be essential reading for the ongoing series starting at #1, so be sure to grab this issue now! Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jun 19, 2013

    At the very least, the issue looks good thanks to Victor Ibanez and Pere Perez. The story flows smoothly and is easy to read. There's no "wow" moment but that might be more of a scripting issue than an art problem. Too many action scenes are skimmed over and not given enough room for these guys to showcase what they can do. Captain Midnight is off to shaky start, but it's good enough that I'll be back for issue one when it launches. Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Stephen Wilds Jun 19, 2013

    An eye-catching spread with a lackluster main character. Captain Midnight has good things surrounding it, but lacks at its core. This classic character is being given another shot here in 2013, but his time may have passed. Read Full Review

    It’s honestly hard for me to give a bad review, but when it comes to comics then you have to give it your all. I'm sure that he creative team did the best they could or else Captain Midnight wouldn't have been released but when it’s all said and done, I think that most people will agree with me that this shouldn't last more than a few issues. Just because I didn't like it doesn't mean that you shouldn't give it a try. Reviews are only a tool not a decision maker. Read Full Review
