Often referred by many as “Harry Potter meets The Marvel Universe”, the chatter around the Series “Strange Academy” has been pretty dormant since the first several issues appeared to collectors. For those who have not been reading or keeping up with the series, not only does issue “unlucky #13” introduce Marvel in to the origins of ZOE LAVEAU, but it introduces us to a BRAND NEW CHARACTER known as GAS LAMP!

One of the better Image titles I think of the past 2 years is coming to its conclusion this July.
Welcome once again to another installment of the One Week Later Report. Usually these are books that heated up or were good pick up for flipping, even going as far to report if books fell flat and you can now find at cheaper prices.
This week we’ll cover the books released on 02/12/2020.
Straight from Image Press Release:
Image Comics is pleased to announce that Middlewest #7 by Skottie Young and Jorge Corona—which hit stores on the heels of the newsbreak of the series’ 2019 Eisner Award nomination in the “Best Publication for Teens” category—is being rushed back to print to keep up with rapidly growing demand for the hot new series.
We shouldn’t just collect or flip books, we should also read them. A good story can make your purchase well worth the money spent if you ask me. After all, we buy books to read for entertainment right? Even if you can’t flip them, reading is just as rewarding.
The best day is upon us once again, new comic book day. We spec, we buy, we flip, we read. Whatever it is you do with your comics, Wednesdays are what we look forward to each week, along with the fabulous CHU Tuesday nights.
Middlewest #2 (3rd Printing) 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 continues to fly off shelves and fan enthusiasm for the series builds. Image Comics has greenlit the Middlewest #2 for a third printing. This third printing cover will feature new artwork by Jorge Corona.
Demand for Middlewest #1 by Eisner Award-winning and New York Times Middlewest #1 4th ptg cover artbestselling creator Skottie Young (I Hate Fairyland, Bully Wars, Deadpool) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Jorge Corona is building momentum at a breakneck pace. Image Comics has greenlit the debut issue to go back to print for a fourth time. This fourth printing cover will feature new artwork by Skottie Young.
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.
It really is a great read. If you’re not already reading Middlewest, here’s your chance at nabbing a copy of the 3rd print.
Here in America this week millions of people will be sitting down and eating turkey on Thursday.

Diamond Advanced Reorder List
One way to guage how hot a comic is/will be is by the Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list. This gives retailers a chance to up their orders for books that may have caught some heat before the release and before the final order cut offs. So without further ado, this weeks advanced reorder list (Dominated by X-Men #1):
1. X-Men #1 – Marvels mutant Juggernauts (no pun intended.) Lead the charge. Stores getting increased interest in this new X-Men book.
2. East of West #3 – Strong sales on the first two issues and increase in price on the secondary market keeps bringing in new readers.
3. Wake #1 – New DC book
4. Injustice Gods Among Us #5 – Popularity on the video game tie in series continues. Prices strong on 1 & 2.
5. X-Men #1 Skottie Young Variant – Boy people love these baby covers.

20,21, &25. Morning Glories #27 variant covers B (Frison) ,C (Guillory), E (McKelvie) Second season of the hit Nick Spensor book begins. Great jumping on point for new readers. #26 was $1 so might draw in new readers. Early ‘Morning Glories’ are hard to find and you will pay to get them.
