Back Issue’s got a real corker in the works…
Over the last week or so, we’ve been giving you the straight dope on a number of groovy mags coming out this year from TwoMorrows. You can find the links below.
But we’ve saved the big one for last — Back Issue #131, which provides a deep dive into Jack Kirby’s DC legacy.

A few thoughts:
— Generally speaking, TwoMorrows’ Jack Kirby Collector is the realm of the King. But in addition to BI, Alter Ego also has a big Kirby issue coming up. (Click here for the details.)
— Back Issue #131 runs $9.95 and is due Sept. 22, give or take a week or two. It will be available at comics shops and from magazine sellers but you can also order it directly through TwoMorrows. It’s already up for pre-order. (Click here.)
