    Ok, so I've just read Midnight Nation for the first time. Now I know why so many people said it is so good. I have a stupid quesiton. I got it form the library in TPB form, and it has issues 1-12, and 1/2 (or somethign like that). But on the binding, it said "Midnight Nation Vol. 1". Was there ever a Volume 2? Was it done and never collected? Or is that just an "In case we ever come back to this story" Volume number?

    It's volume 1 of 1. Never even heard rumors of a sequel.

    If you enjoyed it, pick up Neil Gaiman's novel Neverwhere. Similar concepts, so much so there were some accusations of 'borrowing,' but a different execution. Fun read.

    I actually have Neverwhere, just haven't made time to read it. I LOVE Gaiman's work and 99.9% of what he's done. Guess it'll be next on my reading list....

    Thanks for the quick reply, too!

    Midnight Nation is one of those graphic novels that I really adore and would love to see done right as a movie

    Not a problem.

    And I'm with Shipwreck. Midnight Nation is one of those stories that's much more 'graphic novel' than 'comic book.' But to be fair, I think most of JMS's stuff is the same way--Rising Stars FTW.
