I’ve been waiting for this one for awhile …



There’s always something in an issue of Back Issue I’ll dig, even if the theme of the month isn’t in my wheelhouse.

Then you get issues like the one that’s out as early as 4/22, depending on the vagaries of shipping. (You can also order directly from TwoMorrows.)

This is Flash and Green Lantern in the Bronze Age, which means this whole issue will be awesome.

And we’re pleased to have an EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK at the issue for you. Editor Michael Eury typically posts pages in the mag’s vibrant Facebook group — but Michael‘s also provided pages just for us, which means just for you!

I’m especially glad to be able to preview the story about DC‘s New York offices. I got to go a few times — once with my son, who got a special tour of the library and man, let me tell you …

Anyway, here’s the preview, accompanied by TwoMorrows‘ official description:

BACK ISSUE #80 (84 FULL-COLOR pages, $8.95) looks at Flash and Green Lantern in the Bronze Age (a TwoMorrows crossover with Alter Ego #132, also shipping this month), celebrating the 75th birthdays of two of DC’s greatest heroes! In-depth spotlights of the Scarlet Speedster’s and Emerald Crusader’s 1970s and 1980s adventures, plus MARK WAID’s look at the Flash/GL team, Green Lantern: Ganthet’s Tale by sci-fi legend LARRY NIVEN and JOHN BYRNE, and PAUL KUPPERBERG’s Lost GL Fill-ins. Bonus feature: We commemorate DC Comics’ move to the West Coast with a star-studded DC’s New York Office Memories. Featuring the work of MIKE W. BARR, CARY BATES, DAVE GIBBONS, MIKE GRELL, CARMINE INFANTINO, IRV NOVICK, DENNY O’NEIL, LEN WEIN, and more. Cover by GEORGE PÉREZ! Edited by MICHAEL EURY.
