COMIC BOOK ARTIST BULLPEN collects every issue of the little-seen labor of love fanzine published in the early 2000s by Jon B. Cooke (editor of today’s Comic Book Creator magazine), just after the original Comic Book Artist ended its TwoMorrows run. Featured are in-depth interviews with some of comics’ major league players, including George Tuska, Fred Hembeck, Terry Beatty, and Frank Bolle—and an amazing all-star tribute to Silver Age great Jack Abel by the Marvel Comics Bullpen and others. That previously unpublished all-comics Abel appreciation (assembled by Rick Parker) includes strips by Joe Kubert, Walter Simonson, Kyle Baker, Marie Severin, Gray Morrow, Alan Weiss, Sergio Aragonés, Mort Todd, Dick Ayers, and many more! Includes the never-released issue #7, a new bonus feature on Jack Kirby’s unknown 1960s baseball card art, and a 16-page full-color section, all behind a Jack Kirby cover!

The Batcave Companion investigates the Silver and Bronze Ages of Batman comic books! Two distinct sections of this book follow the Dark Knight’s progression from his campy “New Look” of the mid-1960s to his “creature of the night” reinvention of the 1970s, through art-jammed interviews with and examinations of the work of Carmine Infantino, Joe Giella, Murphy Anderson, Dennis O’Neil, Neal Adams, Dick Giordano, Len Wein, Steve Englehart, Marshall Rogers, Elliot S! Maggin, Mike Grell, Walter Simonson, Jim Aparo, Irv Novick, and other fan favorites. Also included are explorations of Bat-lore such as the effects of the 1966 BATMAN TV SHOW upon comics, a Batmobile timeline, and Batman’s colorful rogues’ gallery. With its incisive introduction by Dennis O’Neil and its iconic cover painting by Neal Adams, The Batcave Companion is a must-have for every Batman fan! Written by Michael Eury and Michael Kronenberg.

Our Secret Half-price Book of the Month for August is JACK KIRBY’s DINGBAT LOVE! Get it for 50% off here!
In cooperation with DC Comics, TwoMorrows compiles a tempestuous trio of never-seen 1970s Kirby projects! These are the final complete, unpublished Jack Kirby stories in existence, presented here for the first time! Included are: Two unused Dingbats of Danger Street tales (Kirby’s final Kid Gang group, inked by Mike Royer and D. Bruce Berry, and newly colored for this book)! True-Life Divorce, the abandoned newsstand magazine that was too hot for its time (reproduced from Jack’s pencil art—and as a bonus, we’ve commissioned Mike Royer to ink one of the stories)! And Soul Love, the unseen ’70s romance book so funky, even a jive turkey will dig the unretouched inks by Vince Colletta and Tony DeZuniga. PLUS: There’s Kirby historian John Morrow’s in-depth examination of why these projects got left back, concept art and uninked pencils from Dingbats, and a Foreword and Afterword by ’70s Kirby assistants Mark Evanier and Steve Sherman

This companion to DC Comics’ “Fourth World” series looks back at Jack Kirby’s own words, as well as those of assistants Mark Evanier and Steve Sherman, inker Mike Royer, and publisher Carmine Infantino, to determine how it came about, where it was going, and how Kirby would’ve ended it before it was prematurely cancelled by DC Comics! It also examines Kirby’s use of gods in Thor and other strips prior to the Fourth World, how they influenced his DC epic, and affected later series like The Eternals and Captain Victory.
