Poyo’s FOC Highlight Book(s) for 5/18/2020

It’s been a while since the last FOC highlight pick, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, shutting down all the non-essentials. So it’s refreshing to see a more valid FOC list for this coming Monday to get back in the groove again for these updates on CHU.

FOC is the last chance to put in your orders with your comic shops and likely get at a discount for pre-ordering.

So this FOC is quite big for this Monday, so I can’t limit it to just one book like I try to do. Sorry, just couldn’t resist. It seems like it’s been a lifetime for new books.

I will start off to say, Batman #92 (Artgerm Variant as well) is once again on the FOC list, which was already highlighted once before. So make sure if you pre-ordered it that your shop still has your order. Print run is going to be huge so don’t worry about flipping, just buy for the PC and limit how many you buy.

Alright, the first FOC highlight book this week is the Bitter Root #8 Visions homage variant. Sure it’s been done before but this is just a sweet homage cover to Purple Rain.

Bitter Root #8 (Cover B - Visions)I got another Image title I think is worthy of making the list, not because it will heat up but the previous volume was just a great read from beginning to end.

This goes to Nailbiter Returns #1.

Nailbiter Returns #1This next pick is for you erotic thrill seekers cover art junkies…  Faithless II #1 FOC Anka variant is that pick. Might not be for everyone but I can see this getting picked up primarily for the cover art. I actually still have Faithless first series on my read list as I’ve heard it’s a pretty good read and I really dig Maria Llovet art.

Faithless II #1 (FOC Anka Variant)Now, it’s listed as FOC but there are no details for this next book, even the original Previews World page that had this one shows up as No Details. I’m trying to find out more info if it’s actually on FOC, if it’s still a Rios variant as it’s listed as a 1:20 ratio variant for Something is Killing Children #7. But could be one of those variants overlooked and or under ordered by shops so they don’t qualify. If anyone has any info, please do share.



That’s all I got this week. A lot of books on FOC and I know they’re likely going to be adding more from the missed weeks into the future order cutoffs, so we’ll likely see a few more highlight picks in the comic weeks.

What is everyone pre-ordering? Everyone excited to get back on the normal new comic book release again?
