Midnight Mystery is a one-man-show, as Bernie Gonzalez drives both the story and the art (with expert lettering from Wes Locher). It's got the right kind of hook, and it's perfectly paced -- neither getting bogged down in any unnecessary padding and not skipping anything crucial that leaves us wondering what happened between scenes. We'll definitely be back for the rest of this four-issue miniseries.

This is one of the strongest, most interesting and unexpectedly delightful introductions to a series. The writing here is mesmerising and the characterisation is excellent as is the pacing and the way that information is uncovered and revealed...Personally growing up I loved watching television late at night or on PBS when all the cheesy “B-movies” horror classics were shown and here within these pages Bernie captures that mood, tone and feel of that in a way I couldn’t have anticipated. This is utterly bloody effin brilliant.
