Dark Horse, Critical Role, and Third Person present a new way to dive into the cosmos of Midst!

Dark Horse Comics, in partnership with Third Person and Critical Role, can now reveal an exciting new collaboration: Midst is a new comic series spinning off from the popular space-Western podcast Midst. Midst comics will be perfect for new and continuing fans alike, as the series explores the cosmos and its characters. The first issue, Midst: Address Unknown, will be written by Colin Lorimer (DaisyBlackout) with art by Alejandro Aragón (Death OrbResonant), colors by Chris O’Halloran, letters by Jim Campbell, and cover art by William Kirkby. Each oversized issue will tell a new story with a new creative team. The first issue will arrive in August 2024 and spans 56 pages.

“Midst has always aspired to be more than just a podcast, so it is incredibly exciting to announce our collaboration with Dark Horse to tell more Midst stories in new ways,” said Third Person. “This collection introduces new aspects of the Midst storyverse, spanning the past, present, and future of the show’s timeline, revealing new heights and depths throughout the cosmos. This is a dream come true for us, and we can’t wait to share these new tales.”

Caught between the Un and the Fold sits the islet of Midst…

When their ramshackle postal ship crashes on a mysterious new landmass, siblings Rowan and Ogden Shearwater have to make the best of it. Adventurous Ogden convinces reluctant Rowan to make a fresh start in the strange new islet that sits between the bright Un and the dark Fold. But Midst holds dangers that will challenge Ogden and Rowan’s family bonds as well as their will to survive.

Midst is also perfect for fans of Firefly and Critical Role.

Midst: Address Unknown (1 of 3) arrives in comic shops on August 14, 2024. It is now available to preorder at your local comic shop for $7.99.

Praise for the Midst podcast:

“Once in a while, you come across an audio story that leaves you absolutely riveted to your chair because it’s the blend of fun and strange where you can’t stop picking it apart over and over. Midst was that audio for me.”-The Bello Collective

About Midst:
Midst is an immersive, semi-improvised sci-fi fantasy audio drama written, created, and narrated by the production studio Third Person and co-produced by Critical Role’s development and production company Metapigeon. In the series, a trio of playfully omniscient and unreliable narrators spin a surreal, space-western tale about complicated antiheroes making bad decisions in a world on the edge of disaster. Midst breaks the traditional rules of storytelling through fourth wall breaking interruptions and a stream-of-consciousness presentation style aimed to fully engage the audience’s imagination. Currently in its third season, new episodes are available every Wednesday on your favorite podcast app, Critical Role’s YouTube channel, and for subscribers on midst.co. Critical Role and Metapigeon are also developing new ways for fans to experience the original and unique cosmos of Midst. For more information, please visit midst.co.
