J. Michael Straczynski's Midnight Nationby J. Michael Straczynski
J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, Rising Stars) has joined the growing ranks of screenwriters that have moved to the less constraining field of comics.

Synopses & Reviews
J. Michael Straczynski's hit series, Midnight Nation, follows the adventures of David and Lauren, two "walkers" who are on a quest to retrieve David's soul from the terrifying "men"...before he becomes one of them!
David and Lauren's travels are frequently unnerving as they inhabit a world between the living and the dead, a netherworld that is neither good nor evil, but all the shades in between...
"Highly recommended....9 [out of] 10....[A]rguably Straczynski's best contribution to comics to date....[A] good script is nothing without a good artist, and Frank proves himself one of the best." Randy Lander, TheFourthRail.com
"[A] rare accomplishment....Midnight Nation will be remembered as one of the most absorbing and emotionally moving sagas in modern comics history." Arnold T. Blumburg, senior editor, Cinescape.com
"With its engaging script and thoroughly effective artwork, Midnight Nation draws you in and leaves you wanting more....Straczynski has written a clever and fast-paced script that keeps you guessing....[Gary Frank's art] works perfectly with the demands of this script....[A] definite must-buy." Minh Ta, IGN.com
