"The structure of the book is really funky. The first issue basically the introduction of the Colonel and the big mystery of the book. Then the second issue is built to explain exactly who he and [Shurra] are, and what drives them. Then the third issue pulls the rug out from under everything by explaining the mystery…and then chaos ensues.

So, yes, you’re going to get what you're talking about, but it's also much, much more. I just think that readers are so savvy when it comes to how to deconstruct – or predict – what kind of story they are reading and what to expect.

I strongly believe that if you have to play with both the story structure and the way you deliver information if you're going to offer a book that delivers a punch.

It took over five months for the third issue of The Dying and The Dead to be finally released (no seriously), so... let's finally take a look at the second issue that was released back in Apri.

I'm not even entirely sure I'm joking there....

Midnighter #4 had a preview up now (Well, it's out today) and hitflix has an interview with writer Steve Orlando

Here's a snippet!

HF: Can we talk a little about the art style? Because as a lady I am very grateful for the sequence that is happening as the preview ends. It seems like with Grayson and Midnighter (among other characters), DC is starting to realize you can't just have cheesecake, but beefcake is also very welcome. Is that something you guys you specifically add in visually because of Midnighter's sexual orientation or is it just a natural outcropping of his personality?

STEVE: I think it's part of his personality. If you try to do it too much 'on purpose' it's not going to come off right. But yes, there are some fascinating things for fans of that type of content in MIDNIGHTER #4! But you know, we were also in Russia and it's a classic cultural thing that happens there. So the opportunity was there and I thought 'Why not do it?' Midnighter is a guy that doesn't care who he makes uncomfortable, he's going to say exactly what he thinks and exactly what he's feeling. 

You're right though. There are plenty of books that have a certain type of male gaze and it's exciting to update that. Tim Seeley and Tom King started it in Grayson and it's something I think is great. It's bold and unapologetic but it's fun. And it's an exciting friendly competition as Tim, Tom, and I try to outdo each other with flirtation and innuendo between Midnighter and Grayson!

Yay! :)

Well, Dick's propensity to elicit protective feelings in brooding older men has been noted too many times to even be coincidence any more.

Coffee and a sauna Mr Grayson? )
