Jump on board for the ultimate comics experience: BACK ISSUE magazine! Edited by Michael Eury (former DC and Dark Horse editor/writer and author of TwoMorrows' book Captain Action: The Original Super-Hero Action Figure), BACK ISSUE celebrates comic books of the 1970s, 1980s, and today through a variety of recurring (and rotating) departments. BACK ISSUE #1's theme is DC vs. Marvel, with these scintillating features:
Our inaugural team-up is a dialogue between George Pérez and Marv Wolfman (moderated by interviewer Andy Mangels) discussing the pros & cons of working for Marvel and DC in the '70s and ' 80s-accompanied by rare Pérez artwork!
Greatest Stories Never Told
This time out, it's an examination of the original JLA/Avengers crossover, revealing why it never happened and featuring unpublished George Pérez pages-plus a spotlight on the new JLA/Avengers mini-series!
Who better to kick off this feature than the "King" himself? We'll take a look at Jack Kirby's '70s and '80s DC and Marvel penciled artwork, direct from his files!
Our ongoing look at non-superhero comics evaluates DC's and Marvel's Tarzan series, with artwork by Joe Kubert and John Buscema, and interviews with Kubert, Carmine Infantino, and Roy Thomas!
Off My Chest
Our guest editorial this issue is by former DC editorial director Carmine Infantino, recalling DC's 1970s' battle plan to challenge Marvel's market dominance!
There's also a "Back Talk" letters column featuring commentary from pros and fans who aren't afraid to choose sides in the DC vs. Marvel war! All this, plus a dynamic Batman vs. Captain America cover by George Pérez, makes BACK ISSUE #1 a must for every comics fan!
