Thank FOC It's Sunday – Star Makes Her First Cover Appearance

We just get later and later. Welcome to Thank FOC It's Friday Sunday, a weekly-ish mailing list, similar to The Daily LITG, but (mostly) every Friday and planned to coincide and cover the demands of Final Order Cut Off. The date when retailers have a last chance to amend their advance orders for comic books without penalty. The last chance for publishers to promote books while orders can still be added. And 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.
