    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 19, 2019

    Young and Corona are constructing something that feels quite distinctly unlike so much that litters the contemporary pop fantasy landscape. Its grounded in standard fantasy elements, but Young and Corona are carving-out something that feels genuinely fantastic. No need to bog down the narrative in so much detail. Young and Corona are wisely allowing the fantasy to be fantastic on its own. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Jordan Claes Mar 19, 2019

    I've been a fan of Skottie Young's for a long time now; he's always been one of my favorite artists. What I find exciting is that now he's also becoming one of my favorite authors as well. The fact that he's surrendering artistic creative control to someone other than himself would also seem to support the idea that writing is the area where Young wants to devote the majority of his focus moving forward. I've loved watching him evolve as a creator and I can't wait for everything that's in-store for Abel and Fox in Middlewest. Read Full Review

    Middlewest #5 adds a surprising layer of optimism to Adel's journey. Perhaps everything really will turn out alright. Of course, it could all go horribly wrong. For right now, I'm basking in Skottie Young's momentary reprieve from the harshness of the world and the vastness that is Middlewest. Read Full Review

    As long as you focus on the heart of Middlewest, you'll enjoy it a lot, but once you get wrapped up into thinking about its world, you'll just wind up frustrated and confused. Read Full Review
