TNTThis weekend: Heroes Con!


This weekend, we wind down our year-long 20th Anniversary celebration at the first convention TwoMorrows ever attended—Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC! Organizer Shelton Drum has been a big supporter of our company from Day One, and always puts on one of the most exciting (and most fun) conventions around.

Don’t get me wrong; this is a BIG convention, with plenty of top guests and attendees all three days. But it’s also managed to maintain a lot of the “small con” feel that made conventions so enjoyable in the good old days; heavy comics focus, lots of older creators in attendance in addition to the newer “hot” artists, plenty of back issues to buy, and an all-around “family” atmosphere, where it seems like everybody knows everybody year after year. If the craziness of Comic-Con has you down on conventions, just try Heroes Con once, and I think you’ll make it an annual tradition, like we have for the last 20 years. For all the details on attending, go to

To celebrate our 20th year, we’ll be offering 50% off virtually EVERYTHING at our booth. We’ll also have the largest contingent of TwoMorrows personnel in attendance of any con in the last decade, though mostly on Saturday only. This includes:

Moi (publisher John Morrow, editor of the Jack Kirby Collector)

Jon B. Cooke (Comic Book Creator editor)

Michael Eury (Back Issue editor)

Roy Thomas (Alter Ego editor)

Eric Nolen-Weathington (Modern Masters editor)

We’ll be coordinating and participating on a slew of panels on Saturday in ROOM 203A, including:

10am: Eric Nolen-Weathington moderates a Modern Masters panel spotlighting Lee Weeks and Cliff Chiang.

11:30am: Jon B. Cooke moderates a Denis Kitchen spotlight panel, to coincided with the con debut of Comic Book Creator #5, featuring an in-depth look at Denis’ career.

1pm: I’ll be moderating a Jack Kirby Tribute Panel, with panelists Jon B. Cooke (longtime associate editor on the Jack Kirby Collector), Roy Thomas (former Marvel Comics editor in chief and top writer, who worked with Jack in the 1960s and ’70s), Charles Hatfield (author of Hand of Fire, his acclaimed book on Kirby), Michael Eury (editor of Back Issue magazine), Tom Scioli (Kirby-inspired artist of GODLAND), and Steve Saffel (editor of Titan Publishing’s dynamite line of Simon & Kirby Archive Editions).

2pm: Roy Thomas will be featured on a Conan The Barbarian panel, discussing his pivotal work on the Conan comics.

3:30pm: Eric Nolen-Weathington moderates a Modern Masters panel spotlighting Arthur Adams and Mark Schultz.

5pm: I’ll moderate a TwoMorrows 20th Anniversary panel to wrap things up, featuring Michael Eury, Roy Thomas, Jon B. Cooke, and Eric Nolen-Weathington. Find out all the stuff we’ve got planned for 2015 and beyond!

And in-between, all these fine gents will be hanging out at our booth, chatting things up with fans, and showing off their newest issues (some unreleased, but here just in time for the show).

TNTFour on the floor!

It’s a big week for shipping new TwoMorrows mags! Due to some freight snags, by this Wednesday, we’ll be mailing copies of:

Back Issue #73

Alter Ego #126 (in 3-D!)

Draw #28

Jack Kirby Collector #63

Pity poor Eric Nolen-Weathington, who just had to wade through a mountain of boxes of magazines that all came in together from our printer; sometimes the deadlines just converge that way, and we have to deal with multiple items arriving all at once. But we’re working like crazy to get them mailed to subscribers, and they’ll all be in stores within the next ten days as well.

These books compile over 2000 pages of heavily-researched information, in a friendly, searchable year-by-year format. Taken together, the series forms a cohesive, linear overview of the entire landscape of comics history, sure to be an invaluable resource for any comic book enthusiast.

It covers the transformation of Marvel Comics into a pop phenomenon, Wally Wood’s Tower Comics, Charlton’s Action Heroes, the Batman TV?show, Roy Thomas, Neal Adams, and Denny O’Neil leading a youth wave in comics, Gold Key digests, the Archies and Josie & the Pussycats, and more.

TNTDigital Edition sale extended till April 30

Layout 1

Since we’ll be out of town (and thus not shipping too many orders) the next few days, I’ve decided to extend our current online sale (offering $1 off most Digital Editions) through the end of this month. The discount is taken at checkout, and you’ll get immediate access to the PDFs as soon as you complete the checkout process (so you won’t have to wait for us to ship you anything).

But if you want PRINT items, don’t hesitate to order them now; we’ll have a skeleton crew of TwoMorrows Elves working over the next few days; you’ll just need to be a little more patient than usual waiting for your order to arrive, as we’re bound to run behind on shipping through the end of April.

TNTAnd next weekend, it’s C2E2 in Chicago!

Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 8.12.57 AM

Wonder why we have a “Closed Till April 28” banner atop our website right now? In addition to Spring Break vacation with my family and our aforementioned appearance at WonderCon this weekend, NEXT weekend, TwoMorrows will be exhibiting at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (or C2E2, as everyone’s calling it). We’re at Booth #708, with the same great 50% OFF sale at product debuts (Alter Ego #125, and American Comic Book Chronicles: 1965-69) as WonderCon. So if you’re not able to hit the West Coast, the Windy City’s just as nice. See you there?

TNTThis weekend, we’re at WonderCon (with 50% off!)


If you’re in the Anaheim, California area this weekend, in between stops at Disneyland, don’t miss WonderCon, the sort of “Comic-Con Lite” (if you call upwards of 50,000 attendees “lite”). It’s shaping up to be another amazing show (it’s run by the same folks who put on Comic-Con in San Diego every summer), and TwoMorrows will be there at Booth #525, offering a whopping 50% OFF almost everything at our tables. We’ll also be debuting a few copies of Alter Ego #125, and our latest American Comic Book Chronicles volume (on 1965-69). But get there early, cause we only have a few copies of these pre-release items.
