    Doesn't scratch the itch of playing the video game, doesn't replace that feeling with something new. Read Full Review

    I think with a more straightforward story arc that put this version of the Midnight Suns front and center, this series could have been much better. Instead, the resulting story is largely forgettable. Read Full Review

    This was a fun little miniseries. You can take it or leave it.

    The entire purpose of this series was to de-age Agatha Harkness. Otherwise, there wasn't much to it. The action seemed superficial. I like the twist that the prisoner stole the powers of the jailer. There was just no reason for the Suns to be part of the story. They were more there as window dressing and could have been eliminated from the story completely with the same end result.

    This was a fairly average final issue for this miniseries. While the Zagaria's art was solid, a lot of Sacks's scripts felt very basic and generic. I think he tried to give the characters their own unique personalities, but something just wasn't fully clicking there for me. Sometimes, it felt as though some of the characters I was reading were trying to talk like the characters they actually are, if that makes sense. There wasn't anything particularly BAD about this issue, but there wasn't anything really great or spectacular either. This was just very mediocre.

    I'm a "takes notes on comics" sorta nerd. You wouldn't believe how many times I wrote "(somehow)" while summarizing this comic's plot.
