    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 20, 2019

    Young and company beautifully broaden the world of Middlewest this issue. The journey of Able and Fox and Bobby and Wrench looks like its starting to develop into something truly unique in an issue that feels viscerally powerful amidst the lights, popcorn and barkers of a carnival.

    The conclusion of this issue left me anxious for more, which is always a good sign. It isn't exactly a cliffhanger"but it also is, in many ways. It reminded me of how the first issue concluded, actually. So I guess in a way we're already starting to come full circle, just not in a way that Abel expected. Read Full Review
