Every two weeks through June, we're publishing a new story, comic, or essay from our second issue. Doesn't that mean some of these will be summer reads, not spring? Yes. Shh. Don't want to wait? The complete second issue will be available in our shop soon. In the meantime, think about supporting Middle Planet on Patreon. Patrons can get the ebook early and subscribe to print/ebook bundles. Everyone loves a bundle. Enjoy the issue.
