An advance copy of this new hardcover just arrived, on sale April 16th. I hadn’t seen the cover before — it’s stunning! Great design, wonderful art by Michael. And look, they even put my name on it! Cool! I’ll be very interested to hear any reactions people might have to this, which I lettered and also did the story adaptation. Of course most of the words are right from Neil’s fine story. The trick, if there is one, is deciding which ones to put in, which to leave out, and occasionally where to add some new ones. If you read it, or see a review somewhere, let me know.

Back Issue 27 cover

Also in this week is the latest BACK ISSUE magazine from TwoMorrows, edited by Michael Eury, and focusing mainly on comics of the 1970s and 80s. The cover is a nice pencil drawing by Nick Cardy handsomely colored by Glenn Whitmore. I’ve already enjoyed the double interview with Brian Bolland and Mike W. Barr about CAMELOT 3000 and one on ARION. I’ll read the rest soon. There’s also a nice one-page tribute to Bob LeRose, who I worked with on staff at DC. Michael and TwoMorrows do a fine job with this magazine.
