Thrilled to learn that Middlewest is nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Publication for Teens (ages 13-17). I love everything about this comic—the writing, the art, the colors, the story. It‘s all fantastic and I can‘t wait to see where the adventure takes us next.

Happy new #comics day everyone.

Little Birds is very 'manga' feeling scifi.

X-O Manowar final Mat Kindt issue ending this series. What an epic run! 🏅

Middlewest ends its first story arc. Fantastic series! 👏

Xena was a total cover buy (❤️ David Mack art).

Outpost Zero = YA dystopian.

Lucifer begins 2nd story arc.

Uncanny X-Men. Love my Mutants.

Gideon Falls begins 3rd story arc.

Relay = finale.

It‘s Wednesday & you know what that means...NEW COMICS!!! Middlewest #1 sold out super fast when it came out last November but good news, the second printing (with a cover by Skottie Young) is on shelves today. It‘s my favorite single issue of any comic in 2018 & I highly recommend it. I‘m a broken record, I know, but I love the variant covers for Wilson‘s Wonder Woman run. Rainbow Rowell‘s Runaways is excellent & Deadpool because Skottie Young.

It was a great year for diving into the world of comics. Middlewest #1 was my favorite—there‘s still, almost two months later, a single panel I cannot get out of my head. Just awesome. Not pictured but also among my favorites, Saga of the Swamp Thing, Descender, and Deadly Class.

GrilledCheeseSamurai Great pics! I haven't read Fence yet but it's definitely on my hit list! It always thrills me when people discover how awesome the comic/manga experience can be! 🤗 11mo

30 books/comics in November & these were my favorites. It‘s no secret I‘m a huge fan of Skottie Young. I picked up Middlewest knowing I would like it & somehow it surpassed my expectations. It‘s powerful & engrossing—there‘s a panel where the dread is so visceral, you feel it right along with the main character (one moment of many). Perhaps the best thing Young has written yet & hands down my favorite read of Nov. Another great month of reading.

Because I loved this first issue that just came out today, here's a look at the first splash page. 😍

This feels like it's going to be a pretty special series! It centers around a boy named Abel who...is having some problems getting along with his father. Not much is revealed yet, but it feels like it's our world...only with a layer of magic of a sort.

I loved this 1st issue & can definitely say it's worth a trip to the shop to check it out.

ohyeahthatgirl Aw yiss! Glad I picked it up. 13mo

Did I make a house full of people wait to start the holiday festivities so I could hit the comic store &, amongst other things, pick up Issue #1 of Young‘s new comic, Middlewest? Yes, yes I did & I‘m thankful they were good humored about it. Middlewest is outstanding, a compelling examination of childhood in a world both strange & familiar, where darkness lurks within reach but so too does wonder. Great story, gorgeous artwork. Highly recommended.

GrilledCheeseSamurai It's my pick of the week! I was super impressed! 13mo
TracyReadsBooks @GrilledCheeseSamurai Couldn‘t agree more. Thought it was a really strong start and I‘m definitely looking forward to reading more. 13mo
