Holy self-congratulations, Match-heads! This website, FIRESTORM FAN, got mentioned in the most recent issue of Back Issue! If you’re not familiar with Back Issue, it’s a wonderful monthly magazine from TwoMorrows Publishing that celebrates comic books of the 1970s and 1980s. This month they tackled the Justice League of America!
Here is their description of the issue from their website:
BACK ISSUE #58 (84 pages, and now in FULL COLOR, $8.95) focuses on “JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA in the Bronze Age”! Relive the “Satellite Years” of the ’70s and early ’80s, featuring RICH BUCKLER, STEVE ENGLEHART, GEORGE PÉREZ, and LEN WEIN—and a salute to DICK DILLIN, JLA artist extraordinaire. Plus the Justice League fans loved to hate: the “Detroit” team, featuring GERRY CONWAY, LUKE McDONNELL, CHUCK PATTON, and more. Also: CONWAY and GEOFF JOHNS go “Pro2Pro” on writing the JLA, unofficial JLA/Avengers crossovers, and Marvel’s JLA, the Squadron Supreme. With an all-new Justice League Detroit cover by McDonnell and BILL WRAY. Edited by MICHAEL EURY.
The article entitled, “22,300 Miles Above Earth” by Shannon E. Riley, cited the interview we did with Gerry Conway! Here is the relevant passages from the magazine:
Back Issue #58 shipped to local comic book stores last Wednesday (July 25, 2012), and is also available digitally from TwoMorrows Publishing. I highly recommend you pick up a copy of this issue. It’s a great magazine with several fantastic articles!
