PORTLAND, OR 02/08/2019 — Demand for Middlewest #1 by Eisner Award-winning and New York Times bestselling creator Skottie Young (I Hate Fairyland, Bully Wars, Deadpool) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Jorge Corona is building momentum at a breakneck pace. Image Comics has greenlit the debut issue to go back to print for a fourth time. This fourth printing cover will feature new artwork by Skottie Young.
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.
