Midnight Man – a fantastic-looking original graphic novel from Andy Bloor and Mo Ali and published by Bad Mother Publisher, will debut at Thought Bubble 2014 next month.
Falling from Big Ben whilst being chased by a possessed horse from the American Civil War, the time-travelling vigilante Midnight Man has had stranger days.
Can he foil the plans of a malevolent time-spanning cabal, and save humanity in the process?
He might be out of luck, he’s possibly out of time, and he’s definitely out of his mind.
Get ready for some TEMPORAL. BULLET. ACTION!

Midnight Man: Bullet Time is an original graphic novel from artist Andy Bloor (Wolfmen) and writer Mo Ali (Dreamcatcher), featuring pin-up art by illustrator Martin Stiff (The Absence).
A fun, action-filled adventure spanning centuries, Midnight Man takes the sensibilities of pulp characters like The Shadow and turns them inside out, unleashing an unstable gun-toting detective with the ability to jump through time onto an unprepared world.
Get ready, because the clock is ticking…
Here’s some tantalising preview pages, courtesy of the team…
