Dig DAVE COCKRUM’s Rare, Unpublished CAPTAIN MARVEL JR. Story


Sometimes a coincidence is too good to ignore: The late Dave Cockrum was born 79 years ago on Nov. 11, 1943, and TwoMorrows’ Back Issue #140 is due out Nov. 16. As it happens, the ish features a groovy little feature on Cockrum that got squeezed out of Glen Cadigan’s excellent illustrated biography on the artist, The Life and Art of Dave Cockrum, which came out earlier this year.

So we bring you said feature — a three-page, unpublished Captain Marvel Jr. story — as both an EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW of BI #140 and a BIRTHDAY SALUTE to one of comics’ most popular creators.

Check this out — along with the mag’s cover and table of contents:

Back Issue #140 is due Nov. 16. It’ll be available at comics shops and magazine sellers but you can also order it directly from TwoMorrows. (Click here.)

In addition, The Life & Art of Dave Cockrum is out now. It lists for $27.95, is available at comics shops and booksellers, and can be ordered directly from TwoMorrows, which is also offering a limited edition hardcover for $36.95.
