One of our biggest signings of 2019 -- the legendary artist behind those beloved Marvel Baby variants & the brilliant Image series I HATE FAIRYLAND comes to Third Eye!
Third Eye Faithful, one of our all-time favorite creators in comics has gotta be Skottie Young, who's unique talent for both writing and illustrating some of the most entertaining, and immersive comic book worlds, has had us hooked and consistently impressed for years!
As huge fans of Skottie's work on I HATE FAIRYLAND and BULLY WARS, we knew we were going to be excited about his IMAGE COMICS series, MIDDLEWEST, which may be our favorite thing by SKOTTIE yet!
In MIDDLEWEST, Skottie & the incredibly talented Jorge Corona are building an epic modern-fantasy read that's on par with some of the best darn comics we've read, and brings us strong memories of the golden age of DC's VERTIGO imprint (series like FABLES, JOE THE BARBARIAN, THE SANDMAN, and more), and we're so stoked to see it arriving in trade paperback!
Read on, Third Eye Faithful, and find out why we're so in love with MIDDLEWEST, and why we're totally pumped to be hosting SKOTTIE to help launch it at Third Eye!
So, what's the scoop on MIDDLEWEST and why do we love it?
This incredible new IMAGE COMICS ongoing series has quickly become one of our favorite reads, month in and month out, and if you haven't yet gotten into it: this first trade paperback collecting 1-6 for just $16.99 is the perfect place to start!
The lands between the coasts are vast, slow to change, and full of hidden magics.
The town of Farmington has been destroyed, sending an unwitting adventurer and his vulpine companion in search of answers-and to quell a coming storm that speaks his name.
From author SKOTTIE YOUNG (I HATE FAIRYLAND, Deadpool, Fortunately, the Milk) and artist JORGE CORONA (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET, Feathers, Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack) comes the tale of Abel, a young boy who must navigate an old land in order to reconcile his family's history.
The perfect read for fans of dark fantasy like Return to Oz, classic Don Bluth animation, and/or Miyazaki animation. Collects MIDDLEWEST #1-6.

OTHER PROJECTS BY SKOTTIE YOUNG!
I HATE FAIRYLAND is one of our all-time faves, and one of Skottie's most beloved works!
In I HATE FAIRYLAND, we get an Adventure Time/Alice in Wonderland-style epic that smashes it's cute little face against Tank Girl/Deadpool-esque violent madness has arrived.
In an adventure that ain't for the little kiddies, (unless you have super cool parents, then whatever), you'll meet Gert-a six year old girl who has been stuck in the magical world of Fairyland for thirty years and will hack and slash her way through anything to find her way back home.
Join Gert and her giant battle-axe on a delightfully blood soaked journey to see who will survive the girl who HATES FAIRYLAND!
Rufus has been the biggest bully in Rottenville since kindergarten, but everything changed on the first day of high school.
Suddenly going from bully to bullied, he's forced to make a shaky pact with his favorite geeks, Spencer and his twin sibling besties Edith and Ernie, to survive the Hunger Games-like contest known as the Bully Wars-where the winner will rule the school!
Collects BULLY WARS #1-5.
Skottie has really built up a following with all the awesome and different stuff he's done, and one of the things he's most famous for are his incredible variant covers featuring little kid versions of Marvel's greatest heroes!
These iconic images of classic covers and iconic heroes and villains have captivated fans of all ages, and as such, has built quite a following for Young's work.
We'll have plenty of the assorted Marvel baby variants available to purchase at our signing with Skottie so you can get some of your favorites signed!
Another series that really caught our imaginations from Skottie was his incredible OZ comics from Marvel, where he took all of the Oz tales and adapted them into some of the most charming, and compelling graphic novels we've ever seen.
It all starts with WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ, and then carries on from there — and we'll have all of the Oz graphic novels in stock and available for you to scoop and check out at our signing with Skottie on 10/24/15!
The ROCKET RACCOON ongoing that Marvel put out in 2014 and 2015 was a true blast that captured the pure madcap mayhem of classic '90s indie gems like SCUD THE DISPOSABLE ASSASSIN and more into the realm of the Marvel cosmic universe — and we loved every second of it.
Not only will have the single issues available for you to scoop and get signed, but also the graphic novels collecting Skottie's run!
And, of course, with the awesomeness that was the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY film, everyone's favorite gun-toting furball got his own comic series — and, guess who made it look so darn good?
