Welcome to Thank FOC It's Friday (mostly) every Friday and planned to coincide and cover the demands of Final Order Cut Off at Diamond Comic Distributors. Of course, in these times, so much of this is up in the air. There's a lot of product coming through that needs adjusting. Because this represents the comic book industry returning to comic book stores en masse, Almost. And there are a lot of Marvel Omnibuses.
Traditionally FOC is the date when retailers have a last chance to amend their advance orders for comic books without penalty. A final chance 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.
So what's FOC'ing today? And from whom?
- Dark Horse has a couple of very big books, Avatar Last Airbender: The Promise Omnibus, Kabuki Vol 3 Omnibus.
