Poyo’s FOC Highlight Books for Last Call 02/01/2021

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

Image sent out a press release about Donny Cates Crossover #4, which a new crossover character making it’s way into his new title and they apparently make it on the Variant B cover.

Now we all know Cates mentioned #3 and Crossover #6 (now available for pre-order) were gonna get big so maybe this is Image pushing the hype train now since Cates has gone a little less key it seems on Twitter.

Either way, love him or hate him, you know there’s a little bit of curiosity of who’s going to appear right? These might be big exciting cameo’s for some but not so much for me but don’t let that fool you, I’m still enjoying the story so far. I don’t have to be a Madman fan to enjoy the overall story.

Crossover #4 is on FOC and they’re not spoiling the surprise for the Variant B as of yet..

Crossover #4 (Cover B Allred Variant)There’s another Image title I’ve had my eye on that’s finally on FOC called Two Moons.

I actually got the pleasure to read this one already and I must say, it’s kind of weird, not your typical Civil War book. It’s got my interest to read the second issue.

Two Moons #1 (Cover A - Giangiordano)

Daredevil #25 (3rd Printing) is the same as the 2nd print but black & white. I actually like this but I don’t anticipate too much heat for this round. The only reason that happens this time is if retailers are still trying to offload the 2nd prints, skip this 3rd and FOMO kicks in when people can’t find a copy and start paying marked up secondary prices that create chaos that makes the prices go up even further until they drop again after the FOMO wears off..

Another surprise hit that landed last weeks gets a second printing.

Star Wars Doctor Aphra #7 (2nd Printing)

No cover art yet, at least from Previews/Diamond. I have yet to search the webs though if it’s been published somewhere.

I don’t expect this to heat up but ya never know right goes to Marvels Voices Legacy #1 and particularly the Coipel Variant, which is just an awesome looking cover of Miles.

Marvels Voices Legacy #1 (Coipel Variant)The one that has the 1:1000…   I’m picking up a copy just to see if it’s really that good to see if it’s actually worthy enough for BOOM! to spend all those extra time and resources to go the distance in getting retailers to try and buy 1000 copies so they can get a limited Keanu Reeves signed 1:1000 variant.

Brzrkr #1 from BOOM! ladies and gentlemen is on FOC.

Suprisingly, seems some retailers (or diamond account holders) are budging as there’s already around 20 listings on eBay at the moment. All prices starting around the 2k mark and up (9 have actually sold so far)… I don’t know about the rest of you but 2k for a signed modern book, meh, I could buy a really decent WWBN #32 for that amount of money..

  1. No one (store, retailer) is budging, or should I say committed to BRZRKR #1 and ordering 1000 copies, yet. So you have retailers trying to sell one pre FOC to see if anyone is dumb enough to pay $2000+ for Keanu Reeves sig. Let’s see how many there are on eBay on Tuesday and what prices are. CGC even has an announcement for the private Reeves signing. I would be shocked if anyone other than MCS and Midtown and maybe a few other retailers would order 1000. If there was no hype around this signing, would anyone really care about this book. Some of his fans. But there is little interest in this story or art. I could see if they had made this a realistic ratio and put it at 1:500, so you’re at $1000 for Keanu’s sig, but then I’m not paying $1000 for Keanu when Harrison Ford is $1000ish. I’ll take Han Solo/Indiana Jones. Not Ted bro or Nemo (said with a hushed tone). I’m not paying $500 for his signature. Ok, maybe $500. But that is my limit. And then, is there any book that matters to even get it on that’s been adapted in comics? Harrison Ford has100’s of Star Wars books to pick from to sign and a few Indiana Jones as well as Blade Runner (legit). I do like Keanu and really love John Wick, but charging double the GOAT is lunacy. If it was at $500 I feel it would be wildly successful. At $1000 some takers. At $2000, crickets.

    1. There’s been 6 solds on eBay so far. So there will be 6 copies out there (and probably a few more). Will anyone care? Will anyone really want a BRZRKR (Olaf) #1 over a copy of ………… take your pick of any amazing key at or over $2000?

      1. “Will anyone really want a BRZRKR (Olaf) #1 over a copy of ………… take your pick of any amazing key at or over $2000?”

        Apparently 6 people wanted it.. so that answers the question of.. “will anyone really want..”

    2. It’s fully returnable. I can see a whole lot more shops going in to qualify and then return what they can’t sell, keeping the prize 1:1000.. so yeah, I think some shops are budging. Even if they don’t sell it, putting up on the wall is a conversation starter for sure after they ship back the few hundred or so they don’t sell from the shelves.

      Comparing one actors autograph value to another is moot though.. it’s like comparing Walking Dead #1 CGC 9.8 to a Incredible Hulk #181 in Good condition.. Keanu is not Ford while Ford is not Keanu.. What you’re willing to pay for one over the other has no bearing what another person is willing to pay..
