FOC is the last chance to put in your orders with your comic shops and likely get at a discount for pre-ordering.
Kicking off this weeks FOC list with the Marvel picks..
Amazing Spider-Man #76 is first up. Oh no, what’s happened to our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man? Well, new writers so I’ll be checking out since Spencer’s run on this title had me yawning..
The Amazing Spider-Man #76 (Jusko Marvel Masterpieces Variant) is a pretty cool variant as well. I love the old school looking Green Goblin.
World War She-Hulk continues in Avengers #49. Will this one have anything special within or are they waiting until the big #50 (#750 Legacy)? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Hoping for just a good read with Black Panther Legends #1 (of 4) but hopefully there’s more on the speculative side with this title as well. Only one way to find out right? Buy it, read it and then talk about it (unless there’s nothing to really talk about).
Crimson Dawn invades Star Wars Doctor Aphra #15 Wobh. These are must pick ups for me. If and when Doctor Aphra gets her own Disney+ show, all her books gonna have potential from the stories and characters within.
The 2nd, 3rd and other additional printings for Marvel:
And if Omnibuses are your thing (which they should be, make great bookshelf pieces while also making it easy to read your favorite issues without man/woman handling them), this should be on your hit list, Star Wars Legends Empire Omnibus HC Vol 01 Sandra Cover pictured below. Best time to buy Omnibuses are pre-order, saves you money and most shops don’t order more than a few of these for the shelf stock being as pricey as they are.
There’s a variant cover which is pretty bad ass: Star Wars Legends Empire Omnibus HC Vol 01 Wilkins Dm Var
For you Gunslinger Spawn fans, comes the new Gunslinger Spawn #1.
Tons of covers, gonna be over printed with retailers acting like consumers.. pick the cover you like and leave it at that.
Department of Truth has over a handful of 2nd printings spanning 6 issues. I’m not gonna post their images here, they all look the same to me. But for you Tynion fans and completists of this title, you know you’ll buy them to love them, cherish them briefly while bag and boarding them to then tuck them away into that Tynion-only titles Longbox of Love!
I’m probably buying After Dark One Shot (Cover A – Tony Harris) just for the cover art alone. I like Tony Harris. We need more of his art on covers.
Who doesn’t love a good Jack the Ripper story? I can’t be the only one who loves the mystery murder crimes type of stories. So Cross to Bear #1 (Cover A – Banovic) is on my hit list. Just hoping for a decent read, any heat is bonus if you ask me.
And it’s not a comic but a hardcover of one my all time favorites, Mega Man.
Mega Man X Official Complete Works HC looks great. Someone buy it for me as a gift for entertainment when I’m all alone and afraid in Anthony’s basement please.
I’m kidding about buying it for me but seriously, for you Mega Man fans out there, it’s a must.
I think Lee Weeks is underrated. His B Cover for Batman 89 #3 (of 6) (Cover B – Lee Weeks Card Stock Variant) is pretty slick. I’m digging it.
She has her fans but not as much heat now as retailers are keeping up with demand I think, but her work is hit or miss with some out there but I’m liking Future State Gotham #6 (Cover B – Rose Besch Card Stock Variant).
It’s going to either be a hit or a miss. Nubia and the Amazons #1 (of 6) (Cover A – Alitha Martinez) is a new Amazonian story coming out of Infinite Frontier. Could be one of those titles though that come back later on depending on if DC keeps tabs on them in future stories, etc.
