    Creative fighting, deep introspection, and variety in panel layouts that show comics is the perfect medium forintense action sequences ensure thatApolloandMidnighter#4 continues the series' momentum into 2017. This issue reads like a great tie-in for a long lost Vertigo/Wildstorm crossover, and Midnighter bathing in the blood in demons just to save his man inspires me so much. Read Full Review

    Steve Orlando once again brings incredible subtle insight to his characterization of Apollo. Blanco and Fajardo jr. do similarly subtle but equally effective work on the visuals, especially in terms of color. Read Full Review

    “Midnighter & Apollo” remains one of the brightest stars in DC's current line up. It's everything I want superhero comic books to be and I can't wait to see what the second half of this miniseries has in store. Read Full Review

    The story follows the classic theme of a lover fighting his way through Hell, against impossible odds to save his lover. How could Midnighter be any more badass than that? Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 4, 2017

    Midnighter and Apollo continues to surprise me and is one of my favorite mini-series going right now.  Cheering on Midnighter as he fights his way to free Apollo feels natural and good and Fernando Blanco's art makes it all the better.  Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jan 4, 2017

    The art, however, is incredibly cool. Fernando Blanco uses heavy inks and patches of blacks that delineate most of the characters and settings, leaving just enough gaps for our brains to fill. Even the colouring is good. This comics excess are forgiven just because the art rocks. Read Full Review

    The conjunction of Midnighter's violence and Apollo'sglowing goodness weaves an enticing story. I wasn't sure at first; I felt itwas too similar to Batman and Superman, but now I have to say I'm a big fan ofthese characters based on their own merit. Fernando does well with addinglittle details, like Egyptian vases in Hell's castle, to add depth to the story.Some of Hell's creatures were a little silly to me, but overall you felt thesense that Midnighter is traveling far to find his love. I also think it'sgreat to not only have a gay relationship be the main source of plot, but to alsohave it be as romantic and real as this one is. Neuron has been built up toseem like this great evil force so I am very interested in how the lovers areable to take him down. As much as I enjoyed Mawzir dying I do hope there ismore strategy involved when taking down Neuron. Either way great book. Read Full Review
