Image Comics has announced that Skottie Young (I Hate Fairyland) and Jorge Corona (No. 1 with a Bullet) are teaming for the fantasy adventure series Middlewest, which is set to launch this November.
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.
“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. “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.”
“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,” added Corona. “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.
