Remember Joe’s Comics? J. Michael Straczynski’s run at Top Cow produced some really great material, including Rising Stars and, especially, Midnight Nation. Available today is the new printing of the Midnight Nation trade paperback, featuring writing from Straczynski and art from Gary Frank (Superman: Secret Origin). This is a MUST READ book! What’s it about?
Midnight Nation is a thought-provoking story with religious overtones about a police officer in limbo who goes on a cross-country search for his soul but encounters some mighty obstacles along the way. When it first came out in 2000, J. Michael Straczynski’s (Superman, Wonder Woman) provocative storytelling and the fantastic art of Gary Frank (Superman: Secret Origin, Supreme Power) captivated readers with its mix of action, horror and drama built around a message of hope, loyalty and sacrifice.
