Episode 1: ‘Twas The Middle Age

Welcome to the first episode of The Middle Age. This starts the adventures of Sir Quimp and Maledicta, the Blade of Woe.

For those who don’t know me, my name’s Steve Conley and I’m a cartoonist whose first webcomic, Astounding Space Thrills, started in 1998 and ran for ~500 episodes. I’ve since created a number of other webcomics and I’ve written and drawn for publishers including DC, Image, Dark Horse, Boom and IDW. The Middle Age is my latest project and I hope you like how it’s starting out.

If you like the comic, please consider supporting me on Patreon. A pledge of any amount makes future episodes possible. In addition, supporters get access to plenty of behind-the-scenes art, larger versions of the strips and more. Once we reach our first goal, I’ll be posting an extra episode of The Middle Age each week.

Feel free to contact me or leave a comment below.

Thanks so much for visiting!

  1. Hello
    I was so lucky to find someone on ebay selling your first kickstarter book and the prints.
    The book is great.
    I had to join your mailing list so I can follow the story and so i can get in on volume 2.
    I’m joining your patreon membership can only do a little every month but I know it all helps.
