Can't Spell Frank Cho Without FOC - Thank FOC It's Friday, April 9th
Thank FOC It's Friday, 16th April 2021

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?

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; The Last Ronin #2 is finally up for FOC with a free 1:10 variant cover.
  • Dark Horse has their latest video-game coffee-table book, The Art Of Far Cry Vol 6.
