What can we say other than ‘Congratulations’ to Skottie Young and Jorge Corona for their soaraway success. They must feel blown away (I know, I know) by it all. And rightfully so, as we love it here at Comicon.com.
For this still in the dark about this coming-of-age Americana-soaked fantasy series here’s the lowdown.
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.
You might be hard pressed to find a copy of a first printing, but with issue #2 out this week, you can still easily join the adventure.
Middlewest #1 Third Printing will be available Wednesday, January 23rd from Image Comics.
