Youth For The New Year - Thank FOC It's Friday, 1st of January 2021
A New Star Wars: High Republic #1? Thank FOC It's Friday, 8th 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.
