00:00:40 – Joe welcomes everyone to episode #50 and gives the obligatory spoiler alerts warning (but really if you haven’t read any of these issues, you didn’t miss anything this past year). Remember, all written reviews on the website are spoiler free and usually get posted within a day of print release (Joe’s not doing anymore written reviews, for shame!).
- SDCC 2015 Wildstorm News! – Just kidding, there wasn’t any mention of our beloved characters. But there were many LGTBQ presentations with even DC kicking things off with a video of there many character that have had other lifestyles. Dozens of articles were written surrounding LGTBQ characters with Midnighter being mentioned in the majority of them. Surely these mentioned will give the new solo title a lift in numbers.

- For the week of 9/02 – MIDNIGHTER#4 – Grayson and Midnighter—reunited at last! Granted, it wasn’t Grayson’s idea, and yes, technically Midnighter might have kidnapped him. And, uh, brought him to Moscow to fight a herd of feral vampires. Maybe this reunion is getting off on the wrong foot…
