Back Issue #130 September 2021 (magazine review).

This issue of ‘Back Issue’ is rather unique as it focuses on when comicbook characters promote everything from food to…well…especially sugary food, even if they rarely indulged in it themselves and behind the scenes things. But first, Alan Kupperberg tells of his time being the editor of DC Comics promotional material. It would be interesting […]

Going back ten years, this ‘Back Issue’ is unique in having its title at the bottom of the cover. Looking at the Walt Simonson picture, it was either that or top right and then you have other problems of where to put the other copy without getting in the way of the barcode. OK, this […]

Picking up this early ‘Back Issue’ should be obvious when it as Mary-Jane Watson on the cover. Let’s pick out some highlights. The opening piece had Dan Johnson interviewing the various creators, including Jim Shooter and Stan Lee, about the Spidey marriage.

As you can tell from the latest ‘Back Issue’ cover, this is a ‘TV Toon Tie-In’. Editor Mike Eury points out that 50 of them have been covered in earlier issues so this does feel like more of a tidy-up for those outstanding which does make sense. It might not be at the top of […]

As you can tell from the cover of this ‘Back Issue’, the emphasis is on Bronze Age TV Tie-Ins. Mike Eury’s introduction shows just how extensive they were and also several that were never done. This subject has been tapped across several issues before but this one is a complete concentration. TV might has supplanted […]

I will admit that I’ve never been a fan of American war comics. Saying that editor Mike Eury’s editorial of how he got Brian Bolland’s picture of Sgt. Rock for the cover is a pointer for all professionals to have some form of contact details on the Net these days. Like a lot of the […]

I saw a couple paper copies of the first issue of ‘Back Issue’ on EBay recently so thought I ought to complete my TwoMorrows first issues. Well, at least work towards them. ‘Back Issue’ as editor Mike Eury explains in his editorial came about when Jon B. Cooke wanted to go in a different direction […]

This latest ‘Back Issue’ literally starts off running with a look at Wally West as he graduates from being Kid Flash to being the Flash after Barry Allen’s death. This was happening as I was moving out of comics but remember at the time that he was going to be played as a normal person […]

I thought pulling the second issue of ‘Back Issue’ on the main auction website last year was a fluke but had similar luck this year with getting a copy of the third issue. The fact so few early TwoMorrows magazine issues pop up is probably more a testament to their readers not wanting to give […]

Back Issue #125 February 2021 (magazine review).

This latest edition of ‘Back Issue’ is a ‘Creator-Owned Comics Issue’. As editor Mike Eury notes in his introduction, they have covered various creators before so these are really the ones outstanding. Chief of these is Matt Wagner’s ‘Grendle’ and ‘Mage’ comicbooks and he’s interviewed about the first of these by Tom Powers. As ‘Grendle’ […]
