Middlewest is proving to be popular, issue #2 goes back for another printing.
I have been a fan since reading the first issue so this is not a surprise if you ask me.
The really nice thing about these second printings is, we’re getting new cover art instead of just a cover label. Issue #1 Cover A is now pushing towards the $10 price and value range on the secondary market. So this is a great pickup if you can find them at the local shops. Signs are pointing to this perhaps only going up in value based on popularity of the story alone.
Gott love the organic comic growers, not inflated by pre-sales type hype.
Here’s the full Image Press Release:
Image Comics is pleased to announce that Middlewest #2 by Eisner Award-winning and New York Times bestselling creator Skottie Young (I Hate Fairyland, Bully Wars, Deadpool) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Jorge Corona is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with demand for the new series. The Middlewest #2, second-printing cover features gorgeous new art by Young.
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.
