Will Comic Book Shops Miss Out On The Joker #1 For FOC?

This week, DC Comics FOC Final Order Cut-Off date will be Thursday at midnight rather than Sunday midnight. The last time this happened, a number of retailers forget and missed out on setting their DC Comics orders. And this time Joker #1 is up for FOC.

This time it is due to the President's Day holiday, and so DC's Final Order Cutoff date previously on Sunday, February 14th has been moved to Thursday, February 11th. To be honest, if you spend Valentine's Day doing FOC numbers, there may be something else that might need attention. Here are the titles the retailers have to order by Thursday night or miss out on – including the new Joker #1 from James Tynion IV and Guillem March, the new Superman: Red And Blue #1, and the return to Infinite Frontier for Wonder Woman and Superman, the Poison Ivy YA OGN Thorns, the final issue of Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp's Green Lantern, and the Absolute Wonder Woman hardcover amongst others.

UPDATE: Here's their new green blank FOC cover – which if retailers miss seeing this may become a lot harder to find.

JOKER #1 CVR A GUILLEM MARCH
(W) James Tynion IV, Sam Johns (A) Guillem March, Mirka Andolfo (CA) Guillem March
Following the events of Infinite Frontier #0, The Joker is the most wanted man in the world! But the Clown Prince of Crime is several steps ahead of law enforcement—and he's on the run overseas. James Gordon, facing retirement, realizes this is the manhunt of his life and the last piece of a storied career…but what mysterious and deadly forces are also in pursuit of The Joker? And in the backup story, following the events of the smash hit Punchline #1, DC's most controversial new villain navigates the infrastructure of Blackgate Penitentiary—while on the outside, Harper Row takes up the mantle of Bluebird to stop her brother from falling under Punchline's influence. Retail: $4.99 FOC Date: 02/11/2021
