Neither of the two main comic book distributers – Marvel and DC – had ever featured a comic series that starred an LGBT lead, until DC released Midnighter last year.

Now, after 12 issues, Midnighter is coming to an end.

The gay vigilante made a splash on his arrival, enjoying crossover success with other DC heroes including former Robin, Dick Grayson, and The Suicide Squad.

“People were given a queer icon that they deserved, and they connected with him,” Midnighter creator Steve Orlando said. “This is a book I needed when I was younger, and for people to have it now, in the next generation, is my greatest accomplishment of all.”
