Two Lots Of Bill And Ted – Thank FOC It's Friday, 14th August 2020

Thank FOC It's Friday. Planned to coincide and cover the demands of Final Order Cut Off at Diamond Comic Distributors. And now UCS and Lunar as well.

Two Lots Of Bill And Ted – Thank FOC It's Friday, 14th August 2020

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.
