The original Dr. Mid-Nite was a member of the Golden age Justice Society of America. There have been (only) three Dr. Mid-Nites. What each has in common is 1) they are all physicians, 2) due to some weird kind of blindness, they can only see at night, 3) they use “blackout” bombs to gain the advantage on their enemies 4) they have mad ninja skillz. Oh, and there’s a pet owl. The current one, Pieter Cross, a transplanted Norwegian (?), is a doctor who helps out the needy, loses his eyesight, by u ...more

This is just horrible. I've been trying to finish this for like a month and a half. And I've been on page 12 for that long. The artwork is really unappealing and there was some weird covert racism in character portrayals. So, I'll have to eternally retire this. Good thing I only got this for like $0.50.

Finally. A DC comic book with art to back up the story. Those of you who i talk to about comic books know that i've been reading them forever, and that i'm not as partial to super-hero stories as i used to be. Also, i often complain that as a visual medium, there are too many folks who get away with writing amazing stories that have sh!t for art.

Well, Doctor Mid-Nite has some amazing paintings from John K. Snyder III, which is reminiscent of Simon Bisley's work. Meaning that the art is gritty, d

this was a bummer. i really like matt wagner, and his art
was good, but this was just a terrible ripoff of batman.
apparently, it's a "real" DC character from way back,
but it was clearly DC ripping off their own successful
property. wagner tried to stay close to the original,
which would be the correct choice if the character
were original and interesting, but was a mistake here.

as for the story, it moved ridiculously fast, but in circles,
and never went anywhere. every single character was a

Actualización de un viejo enmascarado de las historietas a cargo de Matt Wagner, un experto en estas lides que esta vez se decanta por una historia sencilla (pero bien orquestada) que pasa del cuento urbano a la premisa en plan James Bond. Un argumento parejo, diálogos sólidos y la gran labor gráfica de Snyder son los mejores puntos de una miniserie cuyo alicaído tercio final destiñe en comparación a su potente despegue, siendo de todas maneras una recomendable lectura para el aficionado.

Just the perfect kind of grit and Vertigo-esque painterly haze with urban decay that I live for. Pretty scattered, repetitive, and nonsensical at places, but ultimately a great experience and reimagining of the character.

As a reintroduction of the character Doctor Mid-Nite to the DC Universe, this is a great story. I read it too fast -- there is a lot of nuance and subtlety to both the text and pictures.

Beautiful, but unfortunately the quality of the story (which is fine but not great) doesn't match it.

It took me a year and a half to finish this one. The story is pretty generic, but the artwork is awesome.

The first issue was great! Really nice origin to the character. But the art is hard to keep looking at, and then the story became boring and cliche, so I just didn't care anymore.

Something new, something different, something entertaining. It's what I liked about this miniseries.
