    1. Surprisingly good for a spinoff comic. But Ennis is a good storyteller, so perhaps it's not that surprising after all. I've mentioned in the past that I occasionally find Ennis' ultraviolence off-putting. But there isn't as much of it in this story. What's more, the Midnighter is the perfect place for violence, as it's core to the character.

    2. I have really come to appreciate Midnighter a hell of a lot. Most people see him as the ultra violet gay character. But there is so much more to him and this book really highlights that. How will Midnighter react when forced to travel back in time and kill Hitler? It really is one hell of a story.The one-shot last issue in this book really amazed me. A tale of Midnighter and Apollo set in ancient Asia. This was really something special and something tells me a massively underrated story.

    3. Cuando Ennis está inspirado hace historias geniales rebosantes de violencia, mala leche y una misantropía digna del personaje de Molière, pero con muchas puteadas. Cuando Ennis está apurado hace hace historias que van de lo aceptables a lo muy entretenidas, rebosantes de violencia, mala leche y una misantropía digna del personaje de Molière, pero con muchas más puteadas. Acá nos encontramos con el segundo caso. Midnighter se ve obligado a viajar atrás en el tiempo y matar a Hitler, hast [...]

    4. Garth Ennis never fails to disappoint. Besides, what character fits his hyper-violent storytelling style than the hyper-violent Midnighter. Basically, Midnighter gets sent back in time to kill Hitler, and does everything but. While the story itself isn;t special, it's nice to see the Midnighter given some serious character development here, and we come to understand who he really is at heart. This is followed by a tale of a medieval Japanese Midnighter, and only reinforces the themes of the firs [...]

    5. Garth Ennis es un gran escritor, pero siempre estara bajo la sombra de Preacher y Punisher, pero aun asi, hace varios años se marco unos números bastante entretenidos de Midnighter en solitario, en la que puede llenar de ideas locas y disparatadas a esa maquina de matar que es Midnighter, desde viajes en el tiempo, niños nazis que son supertiernos, sangre, gore, gore yt mas gore. El dibujo de Sprouse es de linea clara y muy dinámico.

    6. Going to go with Noah Soudrette on this one - the story itself isn't anything particularly spectacular, but the way Ennis handles it - and his aside on the difficulty of Midnighter's idiosyncratic "life balance" needs - is very welcome and only cements Midnighter in place as an interesting, complex persona. Highly enjoyable.

    7. Something just felt off for me about this book. Midnighter didn't feel right. It was like it had become too one sided in the violence and lost the core of the character. Also Apollo is barely in here except as a one note joke and the plot about Hitler was just not impressive. There were a few good bits, but overall I wouldn't recommend.

    8. Never heard of this character before reading this-I doubt the series went on for long, since I haven't (just checked, 3 volumes-and the rest may not be written by Ennis, which means they might not be worth near as much as the first volume). However, I found it interesting, mysterious, and intelligent. I would like to know more. Also, I love the idea of having an openly gay, serious, main hero.

    9. Ennis never fails to entertain. I'd previously read A Man Called Kev and some Grifter comics (via Ed Brubaker's brilliant Sleeper and Point Blank series) and this brings the trademark Ennis humour and ultraviolent antihero. Sits nicely alongside The Boys, in my opinion.

    10. Fun, imaginative, gory and thoughtful. Funny in the right places. Does Ennis do it any other way? The art was passable - professional but nothing above the standard that any decent works I've spent time on have achieved.Midnighter's religious joke? Awesome.

    11. Blah. When you've done so much better before, as Garth Ennis had with Preacher and Hitman, everything else is a disappointment. The Midnighter was a good concept, but Ennis wasn't the best choice for this spinoff series.

    12. I actually liked it a lot. I wasn't able to put it down and go to bed so I stayed up till almost 2 hours past my bedtime since it was late when I started it

    13. Massive straight forward violent fun. Absolutely great fun with nice cartoony art.And then came the stand alone story at the end. What a piece of crappy samura shit.
