Middlewest Sells Out and Gets a Second Printing with New Art from Skottie Young

Eisner-nominated and New York Times bestselling creator Skottie Young and breakout, Russ Manning Award-winning artist Jorge Corona have captured the hearts of readers with sweeping new fantasy series Middlewest. Middlewest #1 is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with ongoing demand, and the second printing cover will feature exciting new art by Young himself.

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.

Middlewest #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code OCT188507) will be available on Wednesday, January 2nd. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 3rd.

iO9 – A Spider-Gwen Film Is Leading the Charge for Sony’s Animated Spider-Verse Plans – This isn’t too surprising. Animation can be cheap and great return on investment and the Spider-Man films make bank.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

American Carnage #1 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – When I read this comic way back months ago I thought it was fantastic. I think the same thing today. A cop goes undercover in a hate group. Yeah, pretty relevant.

Black Badge #4 (BOOM! Studios) – This series is insane following Scouts who are also assassins. Over the top awesome.

Go-Bots #1 (IDW Publishing) – The classic toys get their time to shine in this series from Tom Scioli. Scioli = awesome.

High Heaven #3 (AHOY Comics) – The first two issues have been fantastic and AHOY just packs so much into an issue you really feel like you’re getting your money’s worth. An asshole gets sent to Heaven and isn’t happy with it and wants to escape.

Low Road West #3 (BOOM! Studios) – This series blends fantasy and apocalypse and we seriously have no idea where it’s going from here.

Middlewest #1 (Image Comics) – Skottie Young’s new series with art by Jorge Corona. Skottie Young has us sold on this one.

Smooth Criminals #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A story about felonies and friendship and a concept that sounds like a lot of fun.

Spider-Geddon #4 (Marvel) – The event packs so much in and we can’t see how it’s going to wrap up with not too much to go. Marvel is once again knocking it out of the park with its Spider-events.

Uncanny X-Men #2 (Marvel) – The first issue took us back and felt like an old-school X-Men comic from the 90s and we’re all in for this weekly series. The end of the last issue, and it’s mini-stories have us scratching our heads as to what’s next.

Web of Venom: Carnage Reborn #1 (Marvel) – Is Carnage returning? We’ll find out!
