  • “A dark prophesy and apocalyptic new villains with horrifying powers the likes of which Earth has never faced before ordains a team of Midnight Suns to rise and tear @#$% up! But what does this new threat have to do with the Sorcerer Supreme’s past? And why is Strange Academy student Zoe Laveau number one on the Suns’ list?”

What They’re Saying:

  • Ethan Sacks: "As a fan of the original Midnight Sons, I am honored and stoked to continue that legacy, and I'm grateful to editor Tom Groneman for giving me the chance to dabble in this mystical corner of the Marvel Universe. We're going to conjure up some wild otherworldly action to go along with some themes that have real world resonance. Having fallen in love with the team book concept on Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, I'm primed and ready to put this lineup of heroes through hell…so to speak."
  • Ethan Sacks: "Seeing the first issue pages come in, I can also say artist Luigi Zagaria's art is going to cast a spell over readers. It's just stunning work. He's at the top of his game."
