    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 17, 2019

    Middlewest swings into a clever bit of momentum with this issue, which continues to develop through sharp bits of mystery that cut through every aspect of the issue from bits of plot resonating out of the dialogue to details drawn into key panels. Young, Corona and Beaulieu round out the first six issues of a series which clearly has a sweeping sense of momentum carrying through a fantasy mutation of the American midwest. From here, theres the risk of a repetition feeding into the story now that all the basic elements of the story are in place, but Young and company feel inventive enough to maintain interest in future issues.

    This is a coming of age story, which is emotionally based in the struggles a young boy has with his relationship with his father with magical twists. This story advances the intrigue surrounding the unique powers that the father and son share while advancing the boys growth toward autonomy. I highly recommend this story for fans of Skottie Young and his form of storytelling and those who love fantasy. Read Full Review
