Exclusive 8 Page First Look
Skyscrapers of the Midwest #3

Without a doubt, Josh Cotter is one of those comic creators whose work the Isotope looks forward to the most. Sure, we've got a special place in our heart for the guy as we were first introduced to him when he won our Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics back in 2004. But even if we'd discovered his books through Diamond or Cold Cut, we'd still just love Cotter's comics!

Acclaimed by critics and fans alike throughout the industry, Josh Cotter brings something special to the comics industry table. Wrapping his carefully crafted stories of heart-wrenching adolescence, grief, and midwestern family life in the trappings of anthropomorphic fantasy and really neat-o robots, Cotter makes mixing humor and tragedy look easy. There can be no denying the sheer retail powerhouse of Skyscrapers which continues to be one of our favorite showcases for non-comic readers who wander in our front door, and the staff was a-buzz with excitement when we heard the next issue was coming out in the not-so distant future.
