SKOTTIE YOUNG AND JORGE CORONA TEAM UP FOR AN ALL-NEW FANTASY ADVENTURE IN MIDDLEWEST
PORTLAND, OR, 07/10/2018 — Image Comics is pleased to announce an all-new fantasy adventure from Skottie Young (I HATE FAIRYLAND, Deadpool) and Jorge Corona (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET, Feathers, Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack)—titled MIDDLEWEST. It is set to launch this November.
“I’m putting so much of myself and my life into this book that sometimes I have to remind myself there’s not really a raging tornado monster chasing me,” said Young. “It’s like we took a Don Bluth movie, Miyazaki, the dark adventures of old Henson movies, and my childhood, then put them in a blender.”
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. So begins the epic tale of Abel, a young boy who must navigate an old land in order to reconcile his family's history.
Corona added: "Being part of this amazing team is a dream come true, and having Skottie's trust to help him bring this world to life is really a privilege. I just can't wait for everyone else to join us along with Abel as we travel through Middlewest."
MIDDLEWEST #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, November 21st.
