DC announced early this morning – 4 am Eastern time early – its slate of new titles and new creative teams on its remaining series to give some tantalizing peeks at its post Convergence lineup come June. One of the books I’m more excited about is a new Midnighter series from writer Steve Orlando and artist ACO. Orlando may be most familiar to readers for his Undertow published by Image or for his Kickstarter backed graphic novel Virgil that recounts the story of an outed gay Jamaican cop. This may be ACO’s first ongoing series for DC.
Midnighter had a previous solo series published under the Wildstorm imprint that lasted 20 issues and ended in 2007. Look for DC to republish at least the Garth Ennis penned opening arc. Or snap up back issues at Ebay. Just don’t bother to buy any once Keith Giffen came on as writer.
We’re still sorry to see Batwoman’s series cancelled though.
