Final Order Cut-Off is the last day that shops can guarantee their orders for comics. After Final Order Cut-Off, or FOC, these books will only be available to retailers on Advance Reorder. And that is not guaranteed. So here are the highlights for Monday, 11/25/19’s FOC list.
THOR #1 – Donny Cates on Thor. This should be interesting as Cates is replacing Jason Aaron. Cates has liberally used concepts from Aaron’s Thor runs. Ton of covers, the Artgerm variant is pretty good and shows a bit of range for him.
DOOMSDAY CLOCK #12 BLANK SKETCH COVER – This one was just announced ahead of FOC and many stores may not get in on them. Grab them if you see them. They will be a solid yellow blank cover with trade dress down the side.
LOW LOW WOODS #1 – Next New Joe Hill Hill House Comics series. These haven’t heated up but have been good reads, and, Hill is no stranger to TV and movies so could be a good long term hold.
TEEN TITANS #37 – The reveal of the identity of The Other.
VAMPIRELLA #6 – Sweet acetate cover for Vampirella. The Artgerm cover gets a blood splashed acetate overlay.
I CAN SELL YOU A BODY #1 – Interesting new series from IDW. Are you dead? Denny Little can help. This disgraced TV psychic can put your soul in a living body… for a price. A bad day at the office, however, has just put a bounty on his head courtesy of a murdered mafioso, leaving Denny 48 hours to save his own life.
KILL LOCK #1 – Another interesting new series from IDW. Each found guilty of an irredeemable crime, four robots find themselves banished from their home world and bound together by the Kill Lock-a programming link that means if one of them dies, they all will. Now a soldier, an addict, a murderer, and a child find themselves forced to protect each other while in search of a cure to survive.
SKULLDIGGER & SKELETON BOY #1 – Black Hammer tie in book that looks good. Black Hammer has been optioned. The 1:10 book could be a go too.
TALES FROM HARROW COUNTY DEATHS CHOIR #1 – Cullen Bunn’s Harrow County returns. This has been one of my favorite horror books. Harrow County was optioned
WELLINGTON #1 – IDW is killing it this month. From Aaron Mahnke- the creator of the Lore podcast- comes an amazing new supernatural thriller that shines a light on the mysteries and monsters lurking in the shadows. Meet the Duke of Wellington-one of England’s most decorated military heroes and- unknown to most- her most daring monster hunter. The secret history of the Iron Duke begins here!
