Thanks OP, I'll get the trade for sure. It's too bad I can't get floppies where I live.

This is a comic book that actually has a compelling story and characters who have something to tell outside their sexuality and race. It could be labelled as "progressive", but it doesn't read like a propaganda pamphlet. Not to mention the great art.

Take a note, Marvel.

Midnighter is a power bottom.

Nobody can resist that Big Blond Dick.

Hey it's captain Halfbeard from the first issue of the mini.

>>90334343
I can't remember whether or not he was in Midnighter's previous book.
>>
>>90337341
Midnighter fought him at the beginning of the last run, but I forget if he died. let's say probably.
>>
>>90333107
so when are we getting a continuation where Dick meets Apollo?

>>90337384
He killed a shit ton of clones I remember that much.

It was at about 9k on issue 4 iirc.

>>90337628
Of course you care more about the straight white couple...
>>
>>90334175
what's exactly a Radu?
>>
>>90337700
On the contrary. I adore Middy and Apollo. I'm just saying that it would be foolish to expect a publisher to allow a homesexual couple to get married when there hasn't even been a proposal between the two of them, while there is already a heterosexual couple that has proposed, but has not been wed yet.
>>
>>90337700
Tumblr pls.
>>
>>90337755
Radu was the landlord of Kyle Rayner when he lived in New York. He had a coffee shop called Radu's and was a father/mentor type to Kyle. It's just nice to see someone acknowledge all this old GL lore that's been passed aside like Extrano. Weird book to put it in though.

If this miniseries was meant to act as a backdoor pilot for more Extrano, IT SUCCEEDED

I need more of Extrano by Orlando

I've only ever known about Middy back in Grayson, but I've been wondering, is The Authority worth reading?
I'm a bit skeptical because I hate Apollo's hair there.

I love these two so much but it's panel like these that makes me mad that I don't have a bf.

>>90338661
If you find a guy willing to go to Hell to get you back, then you'll know your wait was worth it.
>>
>>90338704
Stop it anon, you're hurting me.
>>
>>90338610
Yeah I'd say some of it is worth it. Read the original Ellis Authority run (1-12 if I remember right), then after that's the Millar run. Most people are split on that, some hate it and some love it. The Revolution arc by Brubaker was also fun in my opinion.

You should check out Midnighter's solo run from 2005 (? or was it 2006), the first 9 issues are great. First 6 are by Garth Ennis and then the other 3 by some various other writers. Definitely skip the Giffen run (issues 10-20), it's pure shite.
>>
Thanks for the storytime

This was a great series.

Hope we got more of it (or atleast something of the same quality) in the future.

Don't bring that stupid shit here.

I also like how you specify white, like Midnighter and Apollo aren't white, fuck off.
>>
So are they both going to Ellis' Wildstorm? or just float around in limbo?
>>
>>90339425
Of course they're PoC, shitlord. Apollo is a slav and Midnighter is 1/65 Cherokee.
>>
>>90339449
Ellis said they're gonna appear eventually in Wildstorm, but they're gonna be different versions because he doesn't want to erase what Orlando did in the DCU.

So basically we'll have 2 Midnighters and 2 Apollos. One pair in the main DC universe and the other in the Wildstorm one.
>>
>>90339557
So Ellis is doing a Wildstorm universe? Nice.

Also Seeley said Midnighter is going to appear in Nightwing again.
>>
>>90339799
Yeah the imprint was announced awhile ago, the first issue of The Wild Storm came out a week or two ago. Ellis is writing this and overseeing the entire line basically, at some point there will be more books (I think there are 4 other planned).

Jenny Sparks is supposed to appear in issue 3 if I remember right.

>>90340487
>I'd recognize that back of your head anywhere
Seems like both Midnighter and Apollo have the superpower of recognizing body parts with great accuracy.
>>
>>90338526
>>90333386
so...is that Tasmanian Devil? the Australian super hero? or is it a different hugh?
>>
>>90340972
Yeah that's him.
>>
>>90340583
Thanks, anon. Never read any WildStorm comic before, looks quite interesting.
>>
>>90339338
it would be funny if it was treated like a joke.

I totally forgot about the time Stormwatch fought a Red Lantern.

Still a better love story than Twilight.

Mad props to DC for this, may it herald more in the future.

next mini when? Im not gonna hope that this becomes a regular comic but this is good trade material.

Do you not read a lot of comics? It's not uncommon for artists to copy and paste panels to save on drawing time.

I don't like it but it's hardly anything new.

Literally why? This was clearly written for trade.
>>
>>90333248
Hasn't Apollo killed like thousands to millions?

All I know about them is from the first Authority trade. I don't get how they work in the greater DC universe. Especially Apollo, who's a discount edgy Superman.

For those wondering, that list of numbers at the top is the current issue, and also the number of issues that Ellis is apparently contracted to do. He will be releasing those 24 issues and debuting another series roughly every 6 issues

Great mini. Sad we'll have no more Middy adventures for the time being. Maybe he'll show up in Nightwing?

> Apollo won a bet against hell literally be being a much better person than it was expected of him

See, if he had gotten this character development before Midnighter and him broke up, it would have made sense to the audience why Midnighter was scared Apollo was too good for him.
>>
>>90348374
DC doesn't seem to be really trying with this book. The trade should be out in 2 weeks at most, it's not like many people are buying the floppies. They will kill the momentum.
>>
>>90337548
Sometimes Middy does get a bit "Nothing personnel... kid."
>>
>>90357288
>, it's not like many people are buying the floppies

Because they're waiting for the trade.

Goddamn, DC.

Is this continuing from rebirth or are apollo and midnighter fresh slates again?
>>
>>90359212
The Wild Storm happens in a different Earth/continuity, it's not part of the main DC universe.

It will have a different Midnighter and Apollo. The versions from this mini (and from the previous ongoing, and from Grayson etc.) will remain in the DC universe.
