    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 24, 2019

    Young and Corona continue to develop a very unique North American adventure fantasy that fuses Anglo-European culture with native legends in a way that feels breathtakingly fresh. European fantasy has been done to death in pop fiction. Its nice to see a story that takes a look at the traditional path of the hero from a more uniquely American perspective. Abel might yet turn out to be the self-directed fantasy hero that has been conspicuously absent from pop fantasy for so many years. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jul 26, 2019

    With all these elements coming together Middlewest #9 serves as an excellent slow down moment for this story. It gets the characters where they need to be, while also avoiding the feel of a boring bridge story. Middlewest continues to be a beautiful, fantastic journey of self-understanding and discovery. And I cannot wait for more. Read Full Review
