DC Comics continues to bring us the chilling adventures of the night crew in Gotham by Midnight #7. Writer Ray Fawkes continues to do what he does best through exploring sinister powers from beyond while not sacrificing character development or emotional layers. Juan Ferreyra’s creepy art style is the perfect successor to what Ben Templesmith gave us in issues 1 through 5 of this enthralling page-turner.
In Gotham by Midnight #7, the responsibilities of the Midnight Shift can take its toll on even the bravest. Strange deaths attract our supernatural investigators to an apartment complex where the tenants appear to have literally laid down and died. What trials has Lt. Weaver endured – and has he reached his breaking point? Will the powers of the Spectre be the driving force needed to close a case where “Nobody Cares?”
As would be expected with a book revolving around paranormal activities and supernatural scares, Gotham by Midnight #7 is rated T+ for Teen Plus. If you’re a regular watcher of PG-13 horror movies, you’ll be alright with what is found here. It contains violence, gore, profanity, and frightening and intense scenes.
Gotham by Midnight #7 is loaded with exactly what it should be. It’s a supernatural horror book that delivers as much suspense and thrills as one can expect in 18 pages. Although you would benefit from being somewhat familiar with the regular cast of characters, it does a good job of keeping the main story between its covers while making it obvious that there’s more going on to be kept up with from issue to issue. I rather enjoy the comic and am always left wanting more.
Gotham by Midnight #7 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
