PORTLAND, Ore. 03/18/2021 — A limited number of adhesive bookplates featuring signatures from both co-creators—writer Skottie Young and artist Jorge Corona—will be available at select comic shops ahead of the highly anticipated Middlewest: The Complete Tale release. This all-in-one hardcover edition will collect the complete, eighteen issue, Eisner Award nominated series, along with exclusive bonus features, and be available from Image Comics this July.

“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
