Keanu Reeves to Blade Runner Origins: Thank FOC It's Friday – 29/1/21

Thank FOC It's Friday –  Planned to coincide and cover the demands of Final Order Cut Off at Diamond Comic Distributors. And now Lunar Distribution as well. Here's a lot of product coming through that needs adjusting because this represents the comic book industry returning to comic book stores en masse.

Youth For The New Year - Thank FOC It's Friday, 1st of January 2021
Thank FOC It's Friday, 29th January

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.
