Poyo’s FOC Highlight Book for 12/9/2019

A lot of FOC books this coming Monday but only a few really grabbed my attention.

Last week I went with the 2nd print of Red Mother #1 and while this week there’s a final order cutoff of the fast tracked 3rd print that BOOM! claims could be allocated to those who order it, it’s not my top pick since the first issue hasn’t even hit stands yet, so it hasn’t even proven itself yet. But it certainly has potential if it takes off.

This weeks FOC pick goes to a new IDW book. Rising Sun #1 is that book.

Chiyoko of the Koi Clan leads a group of powerful warriors, the best each clan has to offer, on a mission to save Japan from dragons and monsters. But perhaps the greatest threat she faces is not the many monsters who are ravaging the country, but her own team…

This new IDW book is fully returnable though according to Diamond. So they either have a lot of faith in this book or they are not totally sure how it will do.

For me, the art looks great if the interiors carry over the style from the cover art and who doesn’t like dragons right? I’m a sucker for Samurai swords as well…

  1. Fully returnable means it is not a hot book and they are trying to push sales. Ron Marz does a lot of samurai stuff but it never takes off.
