Time is running out for Captain Midnight, as Tempus ups the stakes by taking a small town hostage. Faced with an awful choice, Captain Midnight can only protect the innocent townsfolk by releasing his dangerous inventions to a lunatic. It’s the good of the many or the good of the few, and Cap doesn’t have much time to decide: Save the hostages or protect the world?

    Captain Midnight #14 is the series you want to be reading if you are looking for a hero that captures everything pure about heroism, even if it also comes as a weakness. The way this issue ends leaves us with many questions of the character's fates all across the board, but that is more than enough reason to anticipate what Captain Midnight #15 has in store for us.

    Captain Midnight #14 is a rock solid yarn that continues this latest arc without missing a beat. I'm left with few complaints as this flys with a recommendation. Read Full Review

    As with the previous issues, #14 does not disappoint in any way whatsoever. Williamson's writing with Garcia's art flow are in perfect sync with one another eliciting a style that make every single page pop with excitement. It has been a hell of a run and I am looking forward to more as things are beginning to get pretty rough for our hero. Will he succeed? Will he survive? Will this title continue to deliver month after month? For the answers to all of those questions, you just have to read and see for yourself. I know that I will. Read Full Review

    "Captain Midnight" #14 is unspectacular, but technically sound. Williamson and Garcia give readers plenty to digest, but stop short of making any of the characters dynamic or engaging. Tempus is propped up as a major league threat to Midnight and acts as such, but the rivalry just doesn't feel deep, and the impact of Tempus' actions lack scope. Some of this may be that the most important supporting characters in Captain Midnight's cast are geographically removed from the event site, but part of it comes (once again) from the lack of sparkle and flash. This is a decent comic geared towards dedicated fans of Captain Midnight, but there's very little here for those not already familiar. Read Full Review
