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 this week's comics product coming through that may adjusting as demand slips and slides with the emerging economic bubble. Or somesuch.
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 today?
- The Pride Omnibus from former Bleeding Cool reporter Joe Glass.
- The complete Grandville Integrale Hardcover from Dark Horse – one of the very best comic books in complete form, from Bryan Talbot
- The Department Of Truth has #7 up for FOC, as well as a bunch of reprints of previous issues. Two Moons and Crossover are doing similar.
- Shadecraft is the big new Image Comics launch from Joe Henderson, Lee Garbett, Antonio Fabela
