Publisher John Morrow interviewed live, Tuesday, Oct. 22, on NPR

TwoMorrows publisher John Morrow will be interviewed live tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct. 22) on North Carolina Public Radio’s call-in show “The State of Things,” hosted by Frank Stasio.

The show starts at Noon EST with a discussion of the new Joker film, which leads into John’s interview from 12:20–12:40pm, where he’ll be talking about the new expanded, second edition of his book Kirby & Lee: Stuf’ Said, and the complicated relationship between the co-creators of Marvel Comics’ major super-heroes.

The Expanded Second Edition of Kirby & Lee: Stuf’ Said! ships today!

Learn more about about the clash over Galactus’ origin, Steve Ditko’s feelings about his Marvel work, and the impetus for Kirby’s notorious “Funky Flashman” parody of Stan Lee!

After achieving the quickest sell-out in TwoMorrows’ history, KIRBY & LEE: STUF’ SAID has gone back to press for an Expanded Second Edition, including minor corrections, and 16 new pages worth of “Stuf’ Said” by the creators of the Marvel Universe!

Interspersed chronologically in this updated edition are new and often surprising revelations that’ve come to light since the first edition took fandom by storm! It’s augmented with copious additional comments by Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko, more details and Lee and Kirby’s clash over the origin of Galactus, and a remarkable find that explains why Kirby decided to bitingly parody Stan Lee as “Funky Flashman” in his Mister Miracle comics series.

The latest American Comic Book Chronicles volume examines comics of 1940-44, and ships today!

Now shipping is the latest volume in TwoMorrows Publishing’s groundbreaking series of full-color hardcovers, where top authors document every decade of comic book history from the 1940s to today.

American Comic Book Chronicles: 1940-1944 examines the World War II Golden Age of comic books, a period that presented the earliest adventures of such iconic super-heroes as Batman, Captain Marvel, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Author Kurt Mitchell and collaborator Roy Thomas composed this volume about the era when America’s entry into World War II was presaged by the arrival of such patriotic do-gooders as Will Eisner’s Uncle Sam, Harry Shorten and Irv Novick’s The Shield, and Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s Captain America. It was when teenage culture found expression in a fumbling red-haired high school student named Archie Andrews. But most of all, the first five years of the 1940s was the age of the “packagers” when studios headed by men like Harry A Chesler, Will Eisner, and Jerry Iger churned out material for a plethora of new comic book companies that published the entire gamut of genres, from funny animal stories to crime tales to jungle sagas to science-fiction adventures.

We’re currently running a highly successful Kickstarter campaign to fund new printings of the sold-out 1950s and 1980s volumes (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/twomorrows/american-comic-book-chronicles-the-1980s). It was fully funded in less than 12 hours, guaranteeing the entire series of comics history books will stay in print as we ready the final volume on 1945-49 for release in Spring 2020.

(Digital Edition) $15.95
