Third Eye Faithful, one of our all-time favorite creators in comics has gotta be Skottie Young, who's unique talent for both writing and illustrating some of the most entertaining, and immersive comic book worlds, has had us hooked and consistently impressed for years!
As huge fans of Skottie's work on I HATE FAIRYLAND and BULLY WARS, we knew we were going to be excited about his IMAGE COMICS series, MIDDLEWEST, which may be our favorite thing by SKOTTIE yet!
In MIDDLEWEST, Skottie & the incredibly talented Jorge Corona are building an epic modern-fantasy read that's on par with some of the best darn comics we've read, and brings us strong memories of the golden age of DC's VERTIGO imprint (series like FABLES, JOE THE BARBARIAN, THE SANDMAN, and more), and we're so stoked to see it arriving in trade paperback!
Read on, Third Eye Faithful, and find out why we're so in love with MIDDLEWEST, and why we're totally pumped to be hosting SKOTTIE to help launch it at Third Eye!
SO WHATS THE SCOOP ON MIDDLEWEST, AND WHY DO WE LOVE IT?
