Traditionally FOC is the date when retailers have a last chance to amend their advance orders for comic books without penalty. A final opportunity for publishers to promote books while orders can still be added. A time for credits to be amends, new covers to be revealed, and a final push given. This is an attempt to sift through them all and find the most relevant items.

What's FOC-ing this weekend?

  • How did King Spawn #1, Echolands #1, Killer Queens #1, Second Chances #1, St Mercy #1, Eat The Rich #1 do? #2 for all is up.
