    Midnighter #10 has everything you would hope for in a comic book. It starts with a bang, and never slows down until the final panel. There is so much action, great dialogue, funny quips and intense fight sequences that you immediately want to re-read it when you get to the back cover. Pick up this issue today, even if you haven't read the first nine, and enjoy what comic books can be, once again. Read Full Review

    Steve Orlando, ACO and Hugo Petrus do probably the best Suicide Squad since Ales Kot and Patrick Zircher with Midnighter #10, which gives the leather-clad fight machine a brawl worthy of his time as he tackles Amanda Waller's gang of name-brand super-baddies. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Mar 2, 2016

    Another exceptionally twisted story that masquerades itself as action when it really is emotionally charged character examination supreme, Midnighter #10 is just one more bit of proof that M is, by far, one of the most fascinating figures in the DC Universe. Riding him alongside Amanda Waller multiplies that factor exponentially. While weve already been apprised of this ongoing titles conclusion, one can hope to see Midnighter and Wallers Suicide Squad matched up in the near Rebirthed future and with Orlando, Petrus, and ACO again at the helm for maximum effect.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Mar 3, 2016

    Midnighter #10 puts the anti-hero in the middle of a kind of superhuman Cold War, and he must weigh his options in working for a variety of morally ambiguous or downright amoral organizations. He picks Spyral for now because they are his employer even if he lines up more ideologically with Amanda Waller. Just like Waller uses supervillains to accomplish good things in messy ways, Midnighter uses his God Garden enhancements to help people in extremely violent ways. Throw in some great humor from Midnighter and the Suicide Squad members, an intersecting narrative involving DC Universe black ops organization and a superhuman arms race, and detail studded pages from ACO and Hugo Petrus, and Midnighter #10 is a shining example of why this title is one of the best comics in the action genre. And it literally goes out with an orange bang courtesy of colorist Romulo Fajardo Jr. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 3, 2016

    Midnighter is a big middle finger to the status quo of super heroes, and that makes him awesome! It's a shame more people didn't give this book or character a fair shot, because he's hard not to enjoy. And when you can make the Suicide Squad look tame, you know you're a badass. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Mar 7, 2016

    And you'll be happy to know that Steve Orlando's signature wit scorches every inch of our meted expectations. As his work continues to set the DCU ablaze, the entirety of the comics community have nestled back into their theater seats with rapt attention, a cocked eyebrow fixed as we scratch our chins in full view of his performance. Steve Orlando will go on to do great things for DC, provided they are wise enough to do what is necessary to keep him. But really, the only book I want him to be writing right now is Midnighter. So as we step towards Midnighter's finale, you would be well advised to join the rest of us as we get while the gettin's good. Read Full Review

    Midnighter #10 cranks the dial to 11 and shows what both sides are capable of when they want to make a statement about who really means business. Read Full Review

    As a rule, cross overs are a risky business. The pay off can be great but issues like this show the risks of them running slightly dry. Action is a requirement for this comic and whilst there is some at times it feels like very little is actually happening. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 2, 2016

    There is nothing better than reading a book with great characters and action that combine to give you a thrill ride of emotions that doesn't let you come up for air.  I wish I read that book, because Midnighter sucks. Jane, get me off this crazy thing!  Oh my nose!  Hey Man!  Is that Freedom Rock?  Yeah, Man!  Well, turn it up, man! Read Full Review
