Midnight Tiger returns to Action Lab in a new ongoing series! Proceeds from this Kickstarter will go toward the series. It is part of Action Lab Entertainment's ACTIONVERSE comic. 

Created by Ray-Anthony Height (X-MEN BLUE/SUPERB), Gavin Shaw is the teenage hero Midnight Tiger. After being attacked, Gavin attained superpowers. He uses these powers as Midnight Tiger to stop the crime in his city. Fans of other ACTIONVERSE titles STRAY and MOLLY DANGER will love the MIDNIGHT TIGER series.

The first story arc is 4 issues long and entitled "Stronger." It's about Gavin (aka Midnight Tiger) coming to grips with the idea that while he's smarter, faster, and more clever than his enemies, he might not be as strong. We also introduce a new supporting cast of characters and make a big move that will affect his future.

Vito Delsante will be writing scripts based on plots by MIDNIGHT TIGER’S creator Ray-Anthony-Height. Delsante is the writer of such Action Lab titles as STRAY and ACTION LAB: DOG OF WONDER. He has also written characters like Batman, Wolverine and Scooby-Doo. The artwork for the series will be done by newcomer Éric Van Elslande.

Delsante had this to say about the project: “I was absolutely honored when Ray asked me to be the caretaker of MIDNIGHT TIGER. If these comics are our ‘kids,’ and Ray has been my missing brother all my life, then I do feel like I'm the book's uncle. To fans, know that we're keeping the book in the family, so to speak. We have always seen MIDNIGHT TIGER as a cross between Invincible and Spider-Man, so, for me, humor had to be a big part of what I brought in."

He goes on to say that the story shows that "This is Gavin, as Midnight Tiger, as a high school student, and you are watching him live his life by day and by night. When we see his supporting team, he's there. He's pretty much on every page, and that's a large departure from his ACTIONVERSE issue. "

Delsante also teases about other fan-favorite characters we may see in MIDNIGHT TIGER: "In terms of cameos, we have a few, but I want guest stars to be earned. I don't want to throw Stray in there without a reason, or Molly, or anyone else. I want to make sure the audience doesn't see it coming, but are satisfied when it does.”

What people said about the first MIDNIGHT TIGER mini-series:

“This is the stuff good comics are made of! This Tiger is pure gold!” (World of Black Heroes)

“This title looks promising and it is definitely one that will provide some stellar action scenes!” (Fortress of Solitude)

“It really reminds me of the comics I read in high school and those are still some of my favorite issues to re-read and think about today. Hopefully Midnight Tiger will be that type of issue for a younger generation.” (Comic Bastards)
