The MLJ Companion documents the complete history of Archie Comics’ super-hero characters known as the “Mighty Crusaders”—The Shield, Black Hood, Steel Sterling, Hangman, Mr. Justice, The Fly, and many others. It features in-depth examinations of each era of the characters’ extensive history: The Golden Age (beginning with the Shield, the first patriotic super-hero, who pre-dated Captain America by a full year), the Silver Age (spotlighting those offbeat, campy Mighty Comics issues, and The Fly and Jaguar), the Bronze Age (with the Red Circle line, and the !mpact imprint published by DC Comics), up to the Modern Age, with its Dark Circle imprint (featuring such fan-favorites series as “The Fox” by Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel).

Plus: Learn what “MLJ” stands for! Uncover such rarities as the Mighty Crusaders board game, and the Shadow’s short-lived career as a spandex-clad superhero! Discover the ill-fated Spectrum line of comics, that was abruptly halted due to its violent content! See where the super-heroes crossed over into Archie, Betty, and Veronica’s world! And read interviews with Irv Novick, Dick Ayers, Rich Buckler, Bill DuBay, Steve Englehart, Jim Valentino, Jimmy Palmiotti, Kelly Jones, Michael Uslan, and others who chronicled the Mighty Crusaders’ exploits from the 1940s to today! By Rik Offenberger, Paul Castiglia, and Jon B. Cooke. Now full-color throughout, with 60 pages of key MLJ stories, and new cover by Rich Buckler and Joe Rubinstein!

TwoMorrows infects fans today with Comic Book Fever


Starting today, we’re exposing fans to Comic Book Fever, our infectious new book celebrating comics from the magical era of 1976-1986, when all different genres were available to any kid with a pocketful of coins, at establishments from 7-Elevens to their local drug store. George Khoury (author of The Extraordinary Works of Alan Moore, Kimota: The Miracleman Companion, and Image Comics: The Road to Independence) spent years penning this exhaustive tribute to his personal golden age of comics, covering all the things that made those comics great—the top artists, the coolest stories, and even the best ads.

Inside this 240-page full-color trade paperback ($34.95 cover price) are new articles, interviews, and images about the people, places, characters, titles, moments, and good times that inspired and thrilled fans in the Bronze Age: Neal Adams, John Romita, George Pérez, Marv Wolfman, Alan Moore, Denny O’Neil, Jim Starlin, José Luis García-López, The Hernandez Brothers, The Buscema Brothers, Stan Lee, Jack Davis, Jack Kirby, Kevin Eastman, Chris Claremont, Gerry Conway, Frank Miller and others.

It also covers the phenoms that delighted Baby Boomers, Generation X, and beyond: Uncanny X-Men, New Teen Titans, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Love and Rockets, Crisis On Infinite Earths, Superman vs. Spider-Man, Archie Comics, Harvey Comics, Kiss, Star Wars, Rom, Hostess Cake ads, Slurpee cups, Grit(!), and other milestones.

Talk across the Internet is already going viral:

Reviewer Dan Greenfield declares this book to be “the Bible of the post-Baby Boom”!

Kevin Eastman (co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) can’t wait for it.

Captain Strangelife even does a YouTube video review!

With cover art and Introduction by superstar painter Alex Ross (featuring Snyderman from those unforgettable 1970s mail order ads), Comic Book Fever sends readers on a contagious trip back in time to re-experience those epic stories, and feel the heat of that era once again.

It’s currently spreading through comics shops worldwide: order using Diamond Comic Distributor’s code #MAR161774.

BACK ISSUE #88 sells out shortly after release! More new magazine sell-outs expected!


Due to recent changes with our distributors, TwoMorrows is experiencing unprecedented levels of reorder activity on our magazines. Case in point: Back Issue #88, only four months old, is already completely SOLD OUT. Demand was so strong, we couldn’t fill Diamond Comic Distributor’s reorder, so stores are being shorted, leaving customers disappointed. And we anticipate this happening with other issues of all our magazines for the foreseeable future.

We base print runs on the INITIAL orders from Diamond’s PREVIEWS catalog, and the number of subscriptions and pre-orders at press time. Second printings are almost never an option, leaving only the digital version for customers who wait too long to order.

BOTTOM LINE: We can no longer guarantee copies will be available for long after initial release!

To ensure you don’t miss an issue:

• Pre-order through our website ( at 15% off
• Subscribe online at:
• Order through Diamond’s PREVIEWS catalog as soon as you see each new issue listed

Don’t wait for a relisting, convention, or sale, or you may miss out. And if you’ve held off ordering any recent issues, many are close to selling out, so order now!

Thanks for your understanding, and for making our magazines the Future of Comics History!
