    That's the strength of Midnighter: Orlando has created an iteration of this character that would be home across any genre of DC Comics, from the supernatural to street-level brawls, and there's not much you can fault this installment for if its biggest flaw is not being a long enough issue. It's violent, but heartfelt, like the series as a whole, and as disappointing as the series' impending end is, Midnighter #11 is still an impressive issue in a landmark series that will hold up well for years to come.

    And so, as I wait the next 30 days out with dread, panic, excitement, and anticipation for the last issue (for now) of this crazy romance cum towering inferno, Im just going to roll over these pages again and again, the way I did when I was a kid trying to absorb every little detail, never knowing that I would have dozens of years of comics like the one in my lap ahead of me. Only this time, Im not so sure Im going to have one like Midnighter any time soon again. And that brings tears to my eyes as well. Read Full Review

    Midnighter is a book that will be gone too soon, but at least it appears prepped to go out on top. Read Full Review

    So, we get some kickass fight scenes, some creepy Bendix posturing, a maniacally violent Midnighter using Afterthoughts powers for torture, and a shipping dream come true. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Apr 6, 2016

    Overall, Midnighter manages to rectify a past misstep to deliver an issue that should be an absolute treat for fans, delivering on every area that has made the book feel so good. If you haven't been checking it out, I seriously encourage you to go back and do so, as we're building to something that'll likely be remembered for years to come. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 6, 2016

    From the detailed and highly original layouts to a heartfelt and humanized Midnighter, this story should find its way to the top of your list. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 6, 2016

    Midnighter #11 serves as a great point of escalation for the plot. There are ways in which this fight can end, and that all comes down to those little things you notice that could turn the tide in anyone's favor. Waller realizing she may have made a mistake, Apollo showing them what a real God looks like, heck even maybe Deadshot making a bold move on his own accord. Anything can happen and it seems the time for personal feelings have been set aside from whatever has to be done next. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Apr 6, 2016

    Midnighter#11 introduces Apollo to the series at the best possible time as Steve Orlando, ACO, Hugo Petrus, and Jeromy Cox explore his fractured relationship with Midnighter and awe-inspiring power between and during a series of excellently choreographed scuffles with the Suicide Squad and Bendix's The Unified.

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Apr 6, 2016

    Midnighter and Apollo are together again, and holy crap is this issue a pleasure to read! Orlando continues to build this character and world, and in doing so, cements Midnighter's place in the DC Universe" so it's an utter shame this book is coming to a close! Hopefully people continue to catch on to how amazing this character is, and that he'll quickly re-emerge in Rebirth. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Martin Doyle Apr 7, 2016

    With 'The Unified' now an actual formidable threat, and the might of Apollo by the side of Midnighter, the series is primed for a knockdown, drag-out conclusion. Although the news of the series' cancellation must sting, it's great to see the creative team haven't taken their eye off the ball, maintaining the same high standards from issue one, and if the conclusion continues that trend, it's one I certainly won't want to miss.

    An excellent streamlining of Wildstorm and pre-Flashpoint DCU histories, with very good dialogue and action sequences. An enjoyable book... Read Full Review

    I didn't hate this issue of Midnighter.  I'm sure that others will go ga-ga over Apollo being back in Midnighter's life, but I was more of a fan of the dialogue, the character development and where the story is headed, even as it heads towards cancellation.  I was not a fan of the art at all, but having a couple big bads for Midnighter to play off is just the ticket for this reviewer to finally get back on the Midnighter trolley.
