    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 1, 2020

    Young, Corona, and Beaulieu have been marching Abel and company through a slow, steady arc that reaches a huge climax in Middlewests 17th issue. The intensity here is elegantly rendered with magic and power firmly rooted in the sense of emotional and interpersonal drama that builds on events circulating around the series for the past sixteen issues. Different elements of aggression have been drawn together with such a remarkable sense of economy that its actually strange to think that this is still only the seventeenth issue of the series. A story doesnt typically achieve this level of climax until years of steady build-up have passed.  Read Full Review
