Spinning out of GRAYSON comes a solo series starring the man who can predict your every move… but no one will be able to predict what he’ll do next!

Reviews

“…it’s so rare to see gay characters in mainstream comics that have sex lives, including romantic lives that come with the same sort of trials and tribulations that straight characters get to go through. Relationships, breakups, sex and sleeping around: Midnighter normalizes all that for a gay character, in a way that is rarely shown in the pages of comic books. And it manages to do that while also balancing the personal drama with the superhero sci-fi antics you know and love from the character.” (Source: io9)
