FOC is the last chance to put in your orders with your comic shops and likely get at a discount for pre-ordering.
There is absolutely nothing on FOC this week for floppy copies. Dark Horse and Marvel pretty much only have Trades and Hardcovers on FOC. Is something else happening since the DC news? Are publishers scaling back, weighing alternative options perhaps?
Well, besides a few other publishers still pushing new books, the first one that really caught my attention this week is Devils Highway #1 from AWA.
A young woman with a dark family secret embarks on a quest to hunt down the serial killer that brutally murdered her father – only to discover he is just one piece of a national network of evil that snakes across the country and hides in plain sight. To catch the devil she must first embrace the darkness within.
Might not be a spec winner (unless it gets one of those fancy options that make books buzz) but I’m hoping is a great read. My dad drove trucks and had some crazy stories to tell during his tenure, so that’s one reason this one grabs my attention as well. Add in the murder mystery just sweetens the deal.
