[Solicitations] Midnighter and Apollo reunite for six-issue miniseries
DC Comics has announced it is bringing Midnighter and Apollo back for a six-issue miniseries.
More than a few fans were upset when Midnighter was cancelled during the last round of cuts, but DC is committed to bringing more tales to fans. The mini-series will be written by Steve Orlando with art by Frernando Blanco.

It should come as no surprise that Twitter reaction was super positive, including Gail Simone.
I keep saying this, but Dan DiDio cares about LGBTQ representation. It’s no stunt, he’s been ahead of the game. https://t.co/QTIOxzRlDq

Spinning out of the hit series Midnighter, this new miniseries continues the story that launched writer Steve Orlando to notoriety over the past year. Midnighter received critical acclaim in both comic and mainstream press; most notably recognized with a 2016 GLAAD nomination in the “Outstanding Comic Book” category. Together again, in the series opener Midnighter and Apollo will take on subway pirates in Los Angeles and demons in Opal City, but their reunion will take a shocking turn and send them both on an epic journey beyond all belief!
In a statement to the press, Steve Orlando said, “Midnighter and Apollo have spent time apart—figuring out who they were when defined on their own instead of by their relationship. They have a firmer idea of who they are and they’ve become stronger and more confident together. Midnighter and Apollo are back to remind the world that it truly is a bad time to be bastards. This is the World’s Finest Couple—kicking back and making each other better than they are on their own.”
Midnighter and Apollo #1 arrives in stores on October 5th, 2016.
