Another FOC Monday is upon us comic book collectors. FOC is the last chance to put in your orders with your comic shops and more than likely get at a discount for pre-ordering. It’s essentially the last call for pre-orders.
This weeks pick I’ve been waiting for. It’s got that futuristic yet western feel to it. This week’s FOC goes to Join The Future #1 from Aftershock Comics.
“The Future. Ultra-modern megacities reward millions of their citizens with a completely funded life, with every need met, from food to housing and healthcare, in order to com-pete in an economic power struggle in which population is key. But a few rural residents still cling to their independence in what last American small towns are left. When a nearby megacity pressures the people of a small town join up or else, a young teenage girl named Clem will learn how far she’ll go to defend her prin-ciples.
Written by Zack Kaplan (LOST CITY EXPLORERS) with art from Piotr Kowalski (Port of Earth, Eclipse, Sex, Marvel Knights: Hulk, The Dark Tower), JOIN THE FUTURE is a sci-fi western that examines a future where everyone must ask what your values are truly worth.”
There is also a 1 in 15 incentive variant. Retailers can order 1 copy when they order 15 of the regular cover. They can also purchase two additional copies at $4.99 each. So it’s only a true 1:15 if shops order 45 copies each. Any more or any less, the 1:15 gets thrown out the window.
After reading an advanced preview copy, looking forward to the next issue.
