To date, we’ve released these volumes:
And in August (debuting at Comic-Con) we’ll be releasing the 1970-79 volume. The next two years will bring a 1920s-30s volume, two 1940s books, and a 1990s edition to round out the 20th Century. It’s the culmination of what I started with TwoMorrows back in 1994.
