Four sold-out TwoMorrows titles coming back in print!

If you’ve been patiently waiting for a copy of the sold-out American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1950s or The 1990s volumes to complete our series documenting every decade of comic book history, the wait is almost over! Both of these FULL-COLOR HARDCOVERS will be back in print in early 2021!

So pre-order the 1950s volume HERE!

and 1990s volume HERE!

(We’re now on track to have the full set in print, when the new 1945-49 volume ships later in 2021. Look for pre-ordering info on that new volume soon!)

Roger Hill’s acclaimed book Reed Crandall: Illustrator of the Comics sold out just months after its initial hardcover release, and fans have been clamoring for it to be reissued. Now, we’re going back to press for a NEW SOFTCOVER EDITION! Pre-order here!

And due to a warehouse fire, part of the initial print run of Pierre Comtois’ Marvel Comics in the 1970s book was destroyed, leaving many customers without the second book in his trilogy spanning from the 1960s to the 1980s. Now, we’re publishing a NEW EXPANDED EDITION with 16 extra pages of Pierre’s erudite analysis of Marvel’s 1970s output. Pre-order here!

All of these books will be back in print in early 2021!

Join the Mail Delay ’til Election Day!

Because of continued slow mail delivery nationwide, we want to do our part to ensure all mail-in votes arrive in time for this year’s election.

So TwoMorrows will NOT be shipping through the US Postal Service between October 26-November 3 (Election Day). Orders placed during that time will be shipped after the election, so please get your orders in this week. (All subscription copies of our new magazines are already in the mail.)

Thanks for your understanding, and please share this message, to help ease the burden on our overworked postal employees!

Treat yourself to these spooky Halloween tomes from TwoMorrows Publishing!
