The Doctor Is In

"The Doctor Is In" from Doctor Mid-Nite #1 (DC, 1999) by Matt Wagner and John K. Snyder III
As the Who's Who podcast made note, the orthographically-challenged Dr. Mid-Nite must have been of particular interest to Grendel creator Matt Wagner because he drew the entry and later wrote his Prestige-format mini-series. But maybe he was mostly a fan of Mid-Nite's look, because he wasn't the Golden Age original, and was played more as a Shadow figure, with a pulpy ensemble cast. Let's just say it's a good thing the mini had John K. Snyder III art (Wagner's own would have been cool too).

  1. Now that is rather gorgeous. I like Doctor Mid-Nite, and it's a shame he isn't used more often.
