An unlikely cast of characters joins forces in the magical debut of the Midnight Suns five-issue miniseries at Marvel Comics.
Written by Ethan Sacks (Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, Wastelanders: Hawkeye) with art by Luigi Zagaria (What If…? Miles Morales, Amazing Spider-Man) and cover by David Nakayama (Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse, Thunderbolts), Midnight Suns #1 hit shelves at your local comic book shop on Wednesday, September 14, 2022.
A dark prophesy and apocalyptic new villains with horrifying powers the likes of which Earth has never faced before ordains a team of Midnight Suns to rise and tear @#$% up: Magik, Wolverine, Blade, Spirit Rider, and Nico Minoru. But what does this new threat have to do with the Sorcerer Supreme’s past? And why is Strange Academy student Zoe Laveau number one on the Suns’ list?
In my opinion, the last few years of Marvel Comics has struggled to create unique and innovative comic books. Midnight Suns #1 is an exception to that statement.
The unique group of characters including Magik, Wolverine, Blade, Spirit Rider, and Nico Minoru join Zoe Laveau from the Strange Academy series from writer Skottie Young (Twig, The Me You Love in the Dark) and artist Humberto Ramos (Spectacular Spider-Man, X-Men). The cast makes for an interesting story by Sacks with great artwork from Zagaria.
The connection to Strange Academy, a series I have really liked over the past few years, makes what I already thought would be a dope book into an even better limited series.
Although it is not a home run of a book, the series is above the sea of Marvel books on the market today.
Be sure to grab issue two of Midnight Suns when it drops on October 19, 2022.
