TwoMorrows’ older Digital Editions increase by $1 on June 1 – stock up now!

Stock up on TwoMorrows’ older digital editions before June 1, and beat the price increase!

Older PDF Digital Editions (more than a year old) ordered from increase by $1 on JUNE 1. So older $3.95 digital back issues will now be $4.95, just like new issues.

We wanted to give you fair warning, rather than sneak in a price increase unexpectedly. A lot of internal business concerns went into this decision, and it’s one we didn’t make lightly. After years at our current prices, this will keep them more in line with our print versions and in-app pricing (but downloading digital books and mags directly from us still costs less than app purchases, since Apple and Google don’t get a cut of our webstore sales). So if you missed any digital back issues, get ’em now and save $1 each!

Jack Kirby Checklist: CENTENNIAL EDITION is now shipping!

Shipping today is the new, improved JACK KIRBY CHECKLIST: CENTENNIAL EDITION! Besides now being a Limited Edition Hardcover (only 1000 copies), it’s now 270 pages (more than DOUBLE the size of the 2008 Gold Edition; compare the size difference in the image here). We originally planned for 256 pages, but simply couldn’t fit it all in, so we sprang for those extra pages at no extra cost to you. Preview and order at:
This is truly definitive: fully updated through Jack’s 100th birthday in August 2017, with detailed listings of all of Kirby’s published work, reprints, magazines, books, foreign editions, newspaper strips, fine art and collages, fanzines, essays, interviews, portfolios, posters, radio and TV appearances, and even Jack’s unpublished work!
I am so immensely proud of this book, and of the tireless work that Richard Kolkman put into compiling, correcting, and updating all the data for the last 20+ years. Diamond snatched up most of the copies, so if you didn’t pre-order, do so now at the link above, or at your local comics shop using Diamond Order Code JAN181989.
