Support Brick Journal


TwoMorrows publishes BrickJournal, a LEGO focused magazine. They also publish LEGO books and comic related magazines. They have been hit hard by the shutdown. Barnes & Noble stores and comics shops where they sell their products are all shut down. Like the much of the publishing industry, their distributors are shut down. See my previous post about Dynamite books Indiegogo.

They have had to destroy printed copies of their newest issue of BrickJournal. The issues were stuck in shipping, They were sitting in a warehouse and could not be delivered. The publisher would have to pay rent on the issues while the sat there or pay for special delivery. So to save money, those issues were destroyed.
