Poyo’s FOC Highlight Books for Last Call 07/26/2021 📢

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



Echolands #1 is promising us a Image Comic Event of 2021. I got an advanced preview but have yet to read it myself. I’ll report back if I think it lives up to their own solicitation hype.

These raw cut editions come out a month later. Seems like a cash grab just for the studio work before final publication. 🤔

Another Image book I got a copy of but have yet to read is Second Chances #1. This one I’m hoping for a great read.

Second Chances #1

Might not be for everyone but comes off as a potential fun read. I’m talking about the super gay Killer Queens #1 from Dark Horse.

Love it. Godzilla Monsters & Protectors #5 (of 5) (Cover B – Photo Cover).



A definite must, even if you aren’t reading these. So much spec potential now or later.

Star Wars High Republic Adventures #7 (Cover A – Tolibao)

Black Cat #9 I’m buying just for the cover alone. I’m not even reading this series currently but I like this cover art.

Black Cat #9

Marvel is preparing us for Kang. So I think Kang the Conqueror #1 (of 5) is a must. Lots of covers, I’m sticking to cover A myself for this one but a few of he Stormbreakers are pretty cool. Hoping for a great read though for this one. I know a lot throw some shade at Kang but I think Marvel is going to pull it off with him as a new villain after Thanos. He’s a time traveling super genius, it doesn’t get much better than that.

Moon Knight #2

I just love this Veregge Variant for Sinister War #3 (of 4) (Veregge Variant). It’s just, lovingly odd. Only Veregge could pull this off.

Now the Star Wars titles..

Star Wars #16 (War of the Bounty Hunters)
Star Wars #16 (Nakayama Wanted Poster Variant War of the Bounty Hunters)
Star Wars #16 (Sprouse Lucasfilm 50th Variant War of the Bounty Hunters)

Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters #3 (of 5)
Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters #3 (of 5) (Wanted Poster Variant)
Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters #3 (of 5) (JTC Action Figure Variant)
Star Wars War Bounty Hunters #3 (of 5) (Trading Card Variant)

I’m likely gonna wait to read this one when it hits MU but I do like this Brooks variant for X-Men Trial of Magneto #1 (of 5) (Brooks Variant).



It’s a one shot but a new book out from Aftershock that looks appealing called God of Tremors One Shot (Cover A – Kowalski).

A 19th Century gothic horror of exorcism, demonic worship and epilepsy.

When Aubrey has his first seizure, he’s pulled out of school and hidden away in the family’s remote country estate. His father – a high-ranking English priest – tries to chase the “devil” out of Aubrey – but maybe the devil lurks in the grotesque pagan effigy that dwells on the grounds. And maybe the devil will turn out to be Aubrey’s only ally…

A singular tale of nightmarish terror and creeping enlightenment told against a backdrop of ignorance and brutality, GOD OF TREMORS springs from the fertile imagination of award-winning writer Peter Milligan (OUT OF BODY, Shade the Changing Man, X-Force) with illustrations from Piotr Kowalski (JOIN THE FUTURE, Sex).

God of Tremors One Shot (Cover A - Kowalski)

Nice House on the Lake #2 (of 12) (2nd Ptg) is gonna be a must grab for most who’s onboard with this series.
