Via a press release Image has announced a brand new title, Middlewest, from comic superstars Skottie Young and Jorge Corona.
“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 in the Image press release. “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. – Via release
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, so be sure to add it to your preorder list.
