STRETCH GOAL: If we reach $16,000, we'll add 16 extra color pages to the Limited Hardcover Edition (yours with any pledge of $60 or more)!

Who we are!

In 1994, The Jack Kirby Collector #1 was published for true fans of the comic book medium. That modest fanzine spawned TwoMorrows Publishing, today’s premier purveyor of publications about comics and pop culture. And now we're celebrating our 25th Anniversary with a special retrospective book: The World Of TwoMorrows! 

What is WOT?

This 224-page full-color volume is co-edited by Jack Kirby Collector editor and publisher John Morrow and Comic Book Artist/Comic Book Creator magazine’s Jon B. Cooke. WOT will give the inside story and behind-the-scenes details of our quarter-century working with the most passionate contributors on the planet, including: Back Issue magazine’s Michael Eury, Alter Ego’s Roy Thomas, George Khoury (author of Kimota!, Extraordinary Works of Alan Moore, and other books), Mike Manley (Draw! magazine), Eric Nolen-Weathington (Modern Masters), and a host of other comics luminaries who’ve contributed to TwoMorrows’ fan-fave output over the years. From the Eisner Award-winning Streetwise book, through the BrickJournal Lego magazine, up to today’s RetroFan magazine, every major TwoMorrows publication and contributor will be covered with the same detail and affection we give to all our books and magazines. The pros even love TwoMorrows so much, that we've been able to corral an Introduction out of Mark Evanier, a Foreword from Alex Ross, an Afterword by Paul Levitz, and a new cover by Tom McWeeney!

Where you come in!

Help us fund The World of TwoMorrows, and you'll get your copy before it hits stores! And this is critical: The EXCLUSIVE HARDCOVER will ONLY HAPPEN IF THIS KICKSTARTER IS FUNDED! (If we reach our goal, the final limited print run will be determined by how many supporters fund it at the TITAN or higher level!) Plus, you can get these great limited and one-of-a-kind perks!

Get your choice of four uncut Kirby Collector press sheets, while they last. Our printer saved a small number of flat, uncut press sheets from some of our favorite Jack Kirby Collector covers and centerfolds. Suitable for framing! (Only 117 available to TwoMorrows Monarchs! Once you’ve pledged, click on this link to choose the one you want.)
