Captain Midnight, the war hero first introduced through a radio broadcast show in the late 1930s, has returned once again in a new ongoing comic book series from Dark Horse. In Captain Midnight #0, writer Joshua Williamson and artists Victor Ibáñez and Pere Pérez pull the Captain straight out of 1944 into the 21st century. Prepare yourself for a thrilling adventure that spans generations!
Jim Albright, the legendary Captain Midnight — costumed hero of World War II — has emerged in present time via a storm at the Bermuda Triangle. Almost crashing into a military plane on a routine run, the Captain bursts forth from his own plane, leaps onto the stranger’s plane, and forces the United States pilot to land on a Navy ship.

Hot on his trail are two U.S. Agents — one a supporter who seems to have a familial tie to Albright and the other a clear skeptic — trying to uncover the missing pieces to his last assignment, his disappearance, and who else may have been transported to 2013 as well.
