Piloting a World War II dive-bomber, Captain Midnight—fighter pilot extraordinaire and expert inventor—hurtles out of a freak storm in the Bermuda Triangle and into the twenty-first century, where he’s in for more than one surprise as he enters the modern era! Collects the three stories from Dark Horse Presents #18–#20.

Introducing Captain Midnight, as the line about said, the man can do it all, and is rather accepting of his new surrounding in his introduction. Captain Midnight seems like the reverse of Captain America, where it has a time vortex with the Bermuda Triangle, and how people believe it’s a gateway, and Captain America, is frozen in the North Pole. The story penned by Joshua Williamson, seems to be a twofold: one, focusing on Captain Midnight himself, and his mission that must be completed, and two, Marshall trying to find the Captain and his love of the lore that is Captain Midnight.

I enjoyed reading the first chapter of the story of Captain Midnight, and I’m curious what Joshua Williamson will continue with. And certainly, the story and character development down the line, and how it will turn down the line in the forthcoming issues. Captain Midnight #0 from Dark Horse Comics, and will be out June 19th!

A series starring, Darth Vader, yes. A series with Vader doing badass things, yes! And hmm owning a room, well, not yet, but you know its coming. Star Wars: Darth Vader and The Ninth Assassin #2, continues after Vader wrongs a powerful Industrialist, by killing his son, and thus the Industrialist wants the second most powerful man in the Universe dead, Darth Vader. The industrialist hires a crack assassin to take Vader’s head. I’ll admit now, I didn’t read the first, but I love the pacing that the series has, and allows for a quick read, and an expansion on Vader’s character as whole, outside what the movies show.

You follow Vader as he begins to track down a not so dead cult of extremists, bent on kill Emperor Palpatine, while he is hunted, unknowingly by an assassin. For when the story is set, few months after the fall of the Galactic Republic, and the formation of the 1st Galactic Empire. The Empire is still consolidating after the war. Admittedly, the story has moments of fun, and other moments of, What in the World? Everything within the confines of the story makes sense, and is believable for Vader to do. Barge in, choke somebody, get some answers and destroy half of a cantina, and still look badass. Star Wars: Darth Vader and The Ninth Assassin #2 is already on shelves, and is a monthly comic from Dark Horse.
