  1. Having bought & followed the MIDNIGHT series, I doubt it was a specific decision by DC, but just part of their desperate need to find some way to recapture their whole product line as they have failed badly now twice with all their re-issues.
    In really good news, ONI Press is issuing a new series, MERRY MEN, based on a very rational rereading of medieval outlawry and sexuality and casting Robin as the betrayed lover of King Richard(Remember him & Phillip of France & Blondel?)! It’s scheduled for release 6/1 in time for Pride month and the pages I’ve seen are both homoerotic and historically tenable. That promises to be a great read!

    PLEASE correct your “”it’s” only gay superhero comic series” to “ITS.” Good gracious…only myopic conservatives should be making such egregious grammar errors.
