Return to “Middlewest” as the first issue goes back for a second printing
Skottie Young and Jorge Corona’s Middlewest is a hard read, but a good read just the same. Equal parts brooding fantasy and domestic drama, the story of Abel is as heartbreaking as it is whimsical thanks to Young’s brutal scripting and Corona’s imaginative imagery.
We’re not alone in thinking this, either, as the first issue has been rushed back for a second printing. The new run of the issue will feature a brand new cover from Young, so if you didn’t get a chance to pick it up already then be sure and have your comic shop set aside a copy. Check out the cover and more details below.
DARK FANTASY EPIC MIDDLEWEST HITS BIG THANKSGIVING WEEK, SECOND PRINTING COVER TO FEATURE NEW ART FROM SKOTTIE YOUNG
PORTLAND, OR, 11/27/2018 — Eisner-nominated and New York Times bestselling creator Skottie Young (I HATE FAIRYLAND, BULLY WARS, Deadpool) and breakout, Russ Manning Award-winning artist Jorge Corona (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET, Feathers, Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack) have captured the hearts of readers with sweeping new fantasy series MIDDLEWEST. MIDDLEWEST #1 is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with ongoing demand, and the second printing cover will feature exciting new art by Young himself.
The lands between the coasts are vast, slow to change, and full of hidden magics. Mistakes have been made, and in MIDDLEWEST, an unwitting adventurer searches for answers to quell a coming storm that knows his name. A blend of dark fantasy best described as classic Don Bluth animation meets Return to Oz, MIDDLEWEST is the tale of Abel, a young boy who must navigate an old land in order to reconcile his family's history.
The Middlewest #1 second printing will hit comic shops January 2, 2019.
