Image’s Eisner-nominated “Middlewest” gets a second printing for its seventh issue
We love Middlewest around here. It’s a heavy exploration of loss and trauma, brilliantly written by Skottie Young and gorgeously illustrated by Jorge Corona. The series earned a well-deserved Eisner nomination for “Best Publication for Teens,” and the seventh issue (like so many before) has gone back for another printing. That’s always great to hear, especially when we’re fans of the series, so check out the details below.
ON HEELS OF 2019 EISNER AWARD NOMINATION IN "BEST PUBLICATION FOR TEENS" CATEGORY, MIDDLEWEST #7RUSHED BACK TO PRINT
PORTLAND, Ore. 05/31/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that Middlewest #7 by Skottie Young and Jorge Corona—which hit stores on the heels of the newsbreak of the series’ 2019 Eisner Award nomination in the “Best Publication for Teens” category—is being rushed back to print to keep up with rapidly growing demand for the hot new series.
Perhaps best described as I Kill Giantsmeets classic Don Bluth and Miyazaki animations, this dark fantasy series follows Abel, a young boy who must navigate an old land in order to reconcile his family’s history.
The lands between the coasts are vast, slow to change, and full of hidden magics. The town of Farmington has been destroyed, sending an unwitting adventurer and his vulpine companion in search of answers—and to quell a coming storm that speaks his name. Now, just as the chance for a new life was starting to come together, Abel spirals out of control again and his adoptive family gets caught in the storm.
Middlewest #7 second printing will hit comic shops and digital retailers on June 26.
