Having greatly enjoyed Steve Orlando and ACO’s Midnighter series, I was happy to see Orlando back with artist Fernando Blanco for a Midnighter and Apollo limited series. Fans of Orlando’s Midnighter will be happy to hear that this reads like an additional six issues of that run. In fact, Apollo’s inclusion in the title seems a bit odd, as he tends to occupy the “boy hostage” slot through much of the series.
DC Comics has announced it is bringing Midnighter and Apollo back for a six-issue miniseries.
Grifter #1 was one of the first comics that I read. I picked it up because I wanted to read about a character I had never heard about. I originally fell in love with the series, but lately there has been a lack of character development and seeing the same ethereal baddies in every issue has become stale. Midnighter from Stormwatch makes a cameo in this issue, but can Grifter #7 help revive this title?
