Issues #1-6

JMS AT RASTB5M SAID:
JAN.6.2003
[Midnight Nation] something that I poured a lot of emotion into, a lot of personal feelings and history and beliefs, covering life, death, religion, god, how we achieve meaning...all balanced against a cross-country quest by two people, one out to reclaim his soul, the other a woman sent to help him or kill him, depending on how the story ends up.

It is also, oddly enough, a love story.

It's one of the things I'm proudest of as a writer, and I commend it to anyone who found the ideas in Babylon 5 of interest. And the art by Gary Frank is just gorgeous, and evocative, and full of emotion.

It's a nifty little story. Honest.

NOTE: Comics are listed by issue number from oldest to newest.

#1: Midnight Nation
Author: J. Michael Straczynski -- Published: Oct 2000 -- Format: Single Comic
Click for larger image DESCRIPTION:
Lieutentant David Grey of the LAPD is working on a case. At first glance it appears to be a simple execution. Then he meets an informant in an alley who tells Grey of The Men, and suddenly everything is different.

MONICA'S REVIEW:
This series shows a lot of promise and I am not sure what to think of it yet since it is not like Rising Stars but instead a darker and more sinister comic. However, it has got my interest and only time will tell how it ranks with the rest of his comics ...

OTHER EDTIONS:
I have collected a few other versions of this issue ... Cover B (exactly the same content but it has an alternate cover), B/W Classic (exactly the same content as A but in black and white) and Mid-West Pink Foil (another new cover). Some other editions that I don't have yet are the Dynamic Forces Blue Foil (another new cover) and the Dynamic Forces European (yet another cover). I hope to get my hands on these versions soon ...

Next month the first title under the Joe's Comics imprint from Top Cow makes its debut: MIDNIGHT NATION, a nifty little book penciled by Gary Frank.

OTHER EDTIONS:
I have collected a few other versions of this issue ... Dynamic Forces Pink Foil (exactly the same content but it has an alternate cover).

#5: Past Present, Present Tense
Author: J. Michael Straczynski -- Published: Mar 2001 -- Format: Single Comic
Click for larger image DESCRIPTION:
No one has ever succeeded in reclaiming his soul from The Men. That truth, which means the potential demise of David Grey, comes home when Laurel must encounter one of her previous failures.

JMS AT B5 SAID:
2.8.2001
This is the one that sets the tone for what's to follow, it gives you a look down the road to what's going to happen to David through the eyes of somebody else. It's kind of like the B5 thing of showing somebody the end while you're near the middle. In my opinion it's the strongest book of the bunch.

2.13.2001
Get this one, it's a real corker.
