About the Author

Skottie Young is an award-winning cartoonist and writer who illustrates New York Times bestselling adaptations of L. Frank Baum's Oz novels for Marvel Entertainment.

SHELF-AWARENESS -- This dark fantasy is both whimsical and stirring, dealing with a runaway boy, toxic masculinity and intergenerational family trauma that sparks the narrative. Oh, and there's a talking fox, too. Well known for his recent comedic turns on Deadpool and I Hate Fairyland, Skottie Young strikes a sincere balance, weaving a coming-of-age story both wondrous and weighty. Richly supported by Jorge Corona's lush, sweeping illustrations, this title will appeal to fans of Stranger Things and The Graveyard Book.

"Very real. Very magical. Very amazing. Your favorite new comic book is here." --Jason Aaron

"Skottie Young's name on a book means I buy it. He's pretty much the most interesting creator around at the moment." --Mark Millar

"I've read a lot of comics in my life, but few of them hit me in the heart as much as Middlewest. We all know Skottie Young is a visionary artist, but Middlewest marks his emergence as a wonderful writer as well. It's heartfelt and gorgeously drawn. I'm in for the long haul. It feels like a long lost cousin to Sweet Tooth and Essex County." --Jeff Lemire

"I was sucked in from page one and couldn't put it down." --Mark Waid

"Compelling, though-provoking and enchanting...Everything comes together nicely, from the art, to the writing, pacing and palette. Definitely give this comic a go." --Impulse Gamer
