Sorry about the lapse, got a phone call from a potential employer.
Yupp, certainly an improvement.
Well, that's all for this run folks. Don't forget to support your LCS and your local murder couple and to pre-order the trade.
Really sad it's over but it's been a very fun ride.
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.
We reasonably speculated based upon evidence, but that is a confirmation, friends.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Also Seeley said Midnighter is going to appear in Nightwing again.
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.
>the first issue of The Wild Storm came out a week or two ago.
Ahh, what the hell. let's do this.
it would be funny if it was treated like a joke.
> first page is Midnigther going away for X, Apollo is the deparment watching tv
> cue plot of the issue, Apollo solves whatever it is and goes back to watching tv
> Midnigther comes back, asks what he did today
We can always hope for a crossover in the Nightwing book.
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
> 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.
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.
