Nice things said by nice people.
It's a very rare thing in today's world of assembly-line comics to come across a creator who writes, draws, colors, AND designs his own book, but Bernie has done just that.
From the very first page, Midnight Mystery, the noir tale of Ezekiel King, supernatural private eye, grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. Bernie's fluid storytelling, clear linework, and skillful use of black give his story a unique, ominous atmosphere. Can't wait to find out what happens next!

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.
...the narrative depth is nevertheless welcome, and very effective at drawing me in. Midnight Mystery is not merely entertaining, but genuinely stirring.
I love the way that this story is being told. The story & plot development alongside the character development that we are seeing here is so well done. The two work together in this kind of perfect harmony...and in some instances how it is presented as clues we as the reader have to decipher...who doesn't want to try to crack a mystery?
