Thank FOC You Love In The Dark, 10th July 2021

Thank FOC It's Saturday-  Planned to coincide and cover the demands of Final Order Cut Off at Diamond Comic Distributors. And now Lunar Distribution as well. Who knows what Penguin Random House will bring? So here's this week's comics product coming through that may adjusting as demand slips and slides with the emerging economic bubble. Or somesuch.

Thank FOC It's Saturday, 10th of July

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 this weekend?

  • Golem Walks Among Us #1 by Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden and Peter Bergting launches from Dark Horse Comics.
  • So does Lucky Devil #1 by Cullen Bunn and Fran Galan which is fully returnable to comic stores who order ten or more copies.
