    I'd only ever heard of Captain Midnight in passing while researching HC books to buy and seen some of that Golden Age 50s(?) fare collected. It didn't grab me.
    When Dark Horse announced he was part of Project Black Sky I was cautiously curious.
    I love, love, love what they did with a character I really knew nothing about. It's honestly a bit of a shame he's a Public Domain character cause with how they crafted Captain Midnight he's a solid cornerstone character to their universe. I'm glad the run went 24 issues and if they bind it into an oversized HR it's an instant buy.

    I was also impressed with what they did with the cheesy Gold Key character Brain Boy.

    I know. I knew nothing about the character either and yet after DH got him, he became one of my all time favorite comic book characters. I wish they would say something about PBS and Captain Midnight. They are losing licenses to other characters so they should bring these back

    If I wanted to get a complete run of every title in the Project Black Sky run, what titles do I need to track down?

    Edit: Sorry for necrobumping this for no reason. I just found a pretty comprehensive list.

    I miss Project Black Sky. It was interesting, especially X. Would love to have seen how he tied in to the overarching plot. Oh well.

    I just redownloaded X and Captain Midnight from the Dark Horse app. There was so much promise, but it seems the market will only support so many shared universes.
    I still miss Renee Montoya. Oh, and I'm a dude.

    They should still do some thing with the characters though. The occasional mini or something.

    The PBS characters seem solid enough to at least allow for an occasional mini or special of some kind. I'm disappointed that Dark Horse is just letting them collect dust.

    I argue the Market can support it. I wager DH(Richardson) has some bar that needs re-evaluating.
    If they did 3-4 ongoings and about 1-2 minis a year or one-shots they could do decent. That is about 1/2 of what VALIANTS output is and they are not shutting down like DH did with Comics Greatest World/PBS(CGW 2.0).
