TwoMorrows Publishing needs your help

Things are topsy-turvy at TwoMorrows right now in light of Diamond Comic Distributors temporarily shutting down, but here’s where things stand for us.

Basically, for the short term at least, our survival will rely on mail order and digital sales. That’s why I’ve just launched a 40% Off Magazine Sale, to boost mail orders and get us through the difficult next few weeks. We’re fully operational, and any in-stock items listed on our website will be shipped immediately. So if you’re able, please place an order online to help us weather the crazy days ahead. For easier ordering, download our new 2020 Digital Catalog at this link:

Copies of our World of TwoMorrows 25th Anniversary book are scheduled to arrive here within a week, at which point we’ll immediately start shipping them to everyone who directly ordered from us and through Kickstarter. The Limited Hardcover Edition of WOT is only available from us, not through comics shops, but we’ll also have plenty of softcover copies available.

Like other publishers, we rely on Diamond and comics shops for the majority of sales of our new releases, so the shutdown is really going to hurt us (as it will comic shops). Diamond’s copies of World of TwoMorrows, Alter Ego #164, Back Issue #120, BrickJournal #62, and RetroFan #9, won’t get to stores until the shutdown is over. But just like the WOT book, our mail order customers won’t miss out on those—we will fill webstore orders as soon as our copies arrive in the next three weeks, and subscribers will also get their copies on schedule, as long as the post office stays open.

A word of warning: For anyone planning to buy BrickJournal #62 or RetroFan #9 at Barnes & Noble, it now appears none of the copies we are sending them will make it to B&N store shelves, and will be destroyed. So the only way to get those issues is through your local comics shop once they reopen, or directly from TwoMorrows. Because of this, we expect these two issues will sell out quickly after release, so don’t delay pre-ordering them.

Lastly, we have several publications ready to go to press as soon as Diamond is ready to receive new shipments. We will adjust our upcoming release dates then, but know that work continues here on all your favorite books and magazines, thanks to our dedicated editors and contributors.

For 25 years, we’ve had the most loyal, supportive fans in the industry, and when this storm passes (and it will soon), with your help, we’ll still be here producing the industry’s best publications about comics, Lego, and pop culture.

Best regards,
John Morrow, publisher

One Day at a Time Sale: Get 40% OFF print magazines at TwoMorrows

In these uncertain times, you can be sure of getting a great deal during TwoMorrows Publishing’s One Day At A Time Sale! 
Right now, we’re offering 40% OFF all print magazines, except new and upcoming releases and subscriptions!
(And they all include a free Digital Edition for immediate reading.)
It’s the perfect way to stock up on reading material while you stay home and safe! For easier ordering, download our new 2020 Digital Catalog by clicking this link!
But don’t delay—this sale may last a day, a week, or a month, depending on what each new day brings.

All orders must now be approved before downloads are released

I’m sad to report there has been a continued string of abuse of our offer of a free Digital Edition (ie. $4.99 off any order), by people using the Redemption Code “stayhome” at our webstore multiple times through fake accounts and other means. So until further notice, all orders placed online (free or paid) will be temporarily held for approval, before the links for any digital editions are released to customers. I will do my best to review orders several times a day, so your delay getting  downloads shouldn’t be more than a few hours in most cases. You’ll get an email when your order has been updated, so you can log into your account to access your download. But you must use a valid email address to take advantage of this offer, and I will delete any accounts that appear to be trying to cheat the system.

Considering all that’s going on in the world, and the spirit of generosity I extended with this offer, I’m very disappointed so many people would go to such lengths to skirt the “one free item per customer” rule. We as a society are only going to get through the current Coronavirus situation by working together and helping each other. That was the spirit of my offer, which is already going to cost my family, and the families of our authors, loss of income in this challenging time. To have someone taking advantage of it makes it that much more difficult for us to continue to make such gestures, which hurts everyone, as I now may have to end the offer entirely.

The vast majority of our readers are honest (like the characters they read about in the comics we all love), and I’m sorry for the inconvenience this will cause them. If you’re one of the few trying to cheat the system, I hope you’ll give some thought to why you felt the need to engage in dishonesty for such a small dollar amount, and for items that aren’t necessities in these difficult times.

Stay Home with a FREE TwoMorrows Digital Edition!

We want to do our part to make it easier for our readers to stay home during the Coronavirus pandemic, and help stop it from spreading.

So now through March 31, enter the Redemption Code “stayhome” during checkout at (at Step 2, where you enter Payment Information), and we will automatically deduct $4.99 from your order! That’s enough for a FREE Digital Edition of any of our mags, for instant reading while you’re stuck at home!

Don’t do digital? Use the $4.99 credit toward any print order, and we’ll get it in the mail to you right away, as long as the post office stays open and operational.

So stay home, stay well, and stay with TwoMorrows over the next few weeks, as we release more great new books and magazines, including:

Back Issue #119 and Comic Book Creator #22 (this Wednesday)
The World of TwoMorrows 25th Anniversary book (in just 3 weeks)
• New issues of Alter Ego, RetroFan, BrickJournal, and Back Issue #120 (throughout April and early May)

John Morrow, publisher

(There’s no minimum order, but the code can only be used once per customer, and is valid through March 31, 2020. We reserve the right to end this offer at any time if we detect misuse.)
