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.
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 FOCing today?
God Of War: Fallen God #1 was solicited a year ago. Then things happened. Now Chris Roberson and Tony Parker's tale is back up again.
- How did Deep Beyond #1 do? #2 is up, and a 2nd printing of #1.
- Image Comics is launching Guillem March's Karmen #1 – now with a Milo Manara FOC cover.
- Cult Of Dracula #1 is even later – so back to FOC it goes.
- Children Of The Atom #1 is up – the new Young Avengers? With a 1:100 Jim Lee cover.
- Deadpool Nerdy 30 #1 is a little later, now with added Gail Simone and Rob Liefeld.
- Eternals #1 and #2 are out – #3 is up for FOC.
- Thor And Loki: Double Trouble #1 launches.
- How did Redemption, Luna, Maniac Of New York and Specter Inspecters do? #2 of each is up for FOC.
- Amazing Spider-Man #61 may be up but its the 3rd printing of Amazing Spider-Man #55 that will get the attention.
- And everyone is redrawing the first issue of Captain America #1 for an 80th Anniversary Tribute.
- Procter Valley Road #1 with Grant Morrison is up, with 1:25 and 1:50 Peach Momoko covers – it was Grant who first published Momoko widely in the US in Heavy Metal.
And all of DC Comics titles FOC'ed early yesterday. Hope you didn't miss out.
