Ghost Volume 1 TPB and receive five free bookplates (max of 20 per store) with artwork designed by Francesco Francavilla and signed by The Black Ghost co-writers/co-creators Alex Segura and Monica Gallagher.

Image Comics are adding FOC covers to Commanders In Crisis #6 by Joe Staton, and to Homesick Pilots #4 by Jamie McKelvie.

Boom Studios is adding unlockable FOC variants to a number of series, two for Firefly Brand New Verse #1, one by Qistina Khalidah and another by Veronica Fish. While Proctor Valley Road #1 gets one by Christian Ward.

And maybe at some point, we'll get a chance to see them as well… preferably ahead of FOC, that's always a good plan.
