Skottie Young and Jorge Corona’s Middlewest #7 Heads Back to Print

Image Comics has announced 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 Giants meets 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 (Diamond Code APR198591) will be available on Wednesday, June 26. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, June 3.
