Poyo’s FOC Highlight Books for Last Call November 7/8th 2021 📢

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



Remember, today 11/7/2021 is the final cut off for DC (Other Lunar Publishers they distribute) and Marvel. Another big Marvel FOC so we’ll start with those.

Amazing Spider-Man #82 (Fornes Variant) has a cover I just like. The regular cover is pretty cool too but this one takes me back to the old ceiling cat is watching you memes.

Also on FOC is Amazing Spider-Man #83 which Gleason is doing the interiors for. I like his covers, even if they’re a little redundant where he’s capitalizing on a style that is making him and Marvel money. If you don’t like it, sue him or something..

Avengers #51 kicks off a new arc and I’m onboard. Sounds like it could be good and Aaron rarely disappoints with his writing.

YAAB… Yet Another Avengers Book but I’m still picking this one up: Avengers Forever #1. Lot’s of potential when it’s dealing with the multiverse.

Another kick ass regular cover for Black Widow that’s been seeing some buzz on the secondary for this volume goes to Black Widow #13. Marvel must feel this one is special, odd that a #13 has so many variants available.

Black Widow #13 (Devil’s Reign Villain Variant)
Black Widow #13 (Pimentel Variant)
Black Widow #13 (Momoko Variant)
Black Widow #13 (Pimentel Design Variant) – This is the 1:50 Variant. TFAW seems to have available for $34.99 after discount but it’s getting listed on eBay for around $99.99 from a lot of sellers. Do note, TFAW has some warehouse woes currently but since this is a pre-order a ways out, hopefully there’s no delays when this one is released if you plan to capitalize on the whole, buy low, sell high.

Hawkeye Kate Bishop #2 (of 5) is on FOC. I’m hoping this is a fun read. Surprised they’re doing just a mini-series instead of a longer running ongoing with the show on the horizon. Oh well.. Marvel loves those #1 reboots to boost those print run dollars.

This one for Phoenix Song Echo #3 (of 5) (Bachalo Variant) has been on my radar for a while. Just love it, the simplicity.

King of Spies #1 (of 4) (Cover A – Scalera). It’s a decent read. I like Scalera’s art so that’s a bonus. I wouldn’t bother going heavy on this one. Buy the cover you like best and make it a reader book.

King of Spies #1 (of 4) (Cover D – Yildirim)

Animal Castle #1 (Cover A – Felix Delep Main Cover) might be a decent read. I can’t recall the last Ablaze book that heated up so definitely in it for the indie aspect of hopefully an entertaining read at minimum.

Another indie from Vault Comics is Lunar Room #1 hoping it’s entertaining as I’m not anticipating this one to fly off the shelves with demand.

I enjoyed the first volume of Maniac of New York so I’m in it with Maniac of New York Bronx Burning #1 (Cover A – Mutti).

I enjoyed Red Room from Piskor so count me in on Red Room Trigger Warnings #1 (Cover A) as well.

Swamp Thing #10 (of 10) (Cover B – Brian Bolland Card Stock Variant) for the cover art.

Enjoyed the first issue. Looking forward to the second issue and this one: Arkham City the Order of the World #3 (of 6).

Another one for the cover goes to DC Horror Presents Soul Plumber #3 (of 6) (Cover B – Kyle Hotz Card Stock Variant). He’s truly mastering these psychedelic type of art for these covers.
