Poyo’s FOC Highlight Books for Last Call January 9th/10th 2022 📢

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



I’m a bit late getting this out but you should still be able to find most of these available online to pre-order.

TMNT THE LAST RONIN #1 (OF 5) gets a 5th print. It’s been what, a year and since the first release and we’re still waiting for the final issues to come out. Geez. I can’t see some shops even bothering so that might make this a winner long term?

TMNT THE LAST RONIN #2 (OF 5) gets a 4th print itself.

Star Wars Adventures #14 (Cover A – Francavilla) might be a worthy pickup as IDW’s Star Wars days are coming to an end, with Dark Horse as the publisher to pick up the mantle for these additional titles that Marvel doesn’t put out themselves.

Radio Apocalypse #2 (Cover A – Radhakrishnan) is a must for me as I really like this writer.

Speed Republic #1 (Cover A – Parascandolo & Monte) looks interesting. Definitely worthy of a checkout I think. Mad Cave are hit or miss but they do sometimes catch the eyes of the spec crowd. The story has to be good though for this one to take off.

Captain Marvel #36 is a potential book to add unless you already picking these up to read or spec on. A lot of past spec with this title and run so it’ll be interesting to see the conclusion of ‘The Last of the Marvels’ storyline and what’s in store for Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel #36 (Zircher Spoiler Variant)

Edge of Spider-verse 2 Facsimile Edition I think is way too soon but still a good pick up for the long term.

Hulk #1 (2nd Ptg Ottley Wraparound Variant) might be a worthy pickup. There’s also the Hulk #1 (2nd Ptg Ottley Character Sketch Variant).

Moon Knight #6 (2nd Ptg Capuccio Variant) gets a second printing and Moon Knight #8 is also on FOC this week. Great cover.

Star Wars Darth Vader #20 is a must. So much potential and spec has come out of these Darth Vader volumes and titles. They’re just a given even if you don’t like Star Wars or Darth Vader.

Batman Urban Legends #12 (Cover C – Anand Radhakrishnan Variant) is just a sweet sweet cover. Love it.

Dark Knights of Steel #4 (of 12) (Cover B – Joshua Middleton Card Stock Variant) is just another Middleton masterpiece. I love his creativity and style. It’s better than the same ‘ol thing every damn cover. Middleton is certainly turning himself into a legend in this industry.
