Announced this morning by the NY Times, Steve Orlando will be returning to Midnighter, one of the best comics of the DC You era that sadly ended all too soon.
October will see the release of Midnigher & Apollo, a six issue mini-series that reunites the on-again, off-again couple that were created by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch back in the Wildstorm days.
While regular Midnighter artist ACO will return for cover duties, interiors for the mini will be handled by Fernando Blanco, who was most recently working on Detective Comics pre-Rebirth.
This will not be the only big launch for the talented Orlando, as August will see the release of Supergirl: Rebirth and the subsequent ongoing series that he will be scripting for the publisher, with art by Emanuela Lupacchino and Brian Ching respectively, as well as his co-writing duties on the upcoming “Batman & The Monster Men” crossover event in September.
I cannot wait! More globe-trotting! More relationship drama! More Dick Grayson, hopefully!
