Congratulations to editor Michael Eury and BACK ISSUE magazine, for winning the TwoMorrows Primary Election! This year we garnered THREE Eisner Award nominations in the same category, so we held our own informal poll to see which one fans felt deserved the honor, and BI came out on top with 57% of the vote. So we’re putting all in-stock issues of BACK ISSUE on sale at 50% OFF through May 1.
To celebrate our nominations, anyone can use the Redemption Code “EISNERS” during checkout, and get $3.95 off their next order of $10 or more at www.twomorrows.com. (The code expires May 1.)
