FOC is the last chance to put in your orders with your comic shops and likely get at a discount for pre-ordering.
Also on a side note, this is the 10,000th article posted on CHU. Thanks to all in the CHU community who make this site great!
Kick this weeks FOC off with all the Marvel titles since they seem to dominate most weeks.
It’s going to probably just have a slight color change on the cover but there’s the Death of Doctor Strange: Bloodstone #1 (2nd Ptg Artist Variant) based off the 1:10 variant from the first printing that is doing quite well on the secondary market.
Avengers Forever #1 (2nd Ptg Kuder Variant). I like the cover.
Another one for the cover as I really dig the Alex Ross pencil sketched variants before his final pieces are painted. This one is for Captain America Iron Man #1 (2nd Ptg Alex Ross Variant).
Ghost Rider #1 gets a new volume. I’m a long time fan of this character so it’s a must for me. Lots of covers and variants for the reboot.
Ghost Rider #1 (Nauk Headshot Variant)
Ghost Rider #1 (Momoko Variant)
Ghost Rider #1 (Stormbreaker Variant)
Ghost Rider #1 (Young Variant)
Ghost Rider #1 (Clarke X-Gwen Variant)
Ghost Rider #1 (Fornes Window Shade Variant)
Ghost Rider #1 (Stegman Wraparound Variant)
Ghost Rider #1 (Hidden Gem Variant)
I’ve enjoyed these Grand Design titles for Marvel characters. Hulk Grand Design Monster #1 is on FOC.
Hulk Grand Design Monster #1 (Martin Variant)
Hulk Grand Design Monster #1 (Piskor Variant)
Hulk Grand Design Monster #1 (Momoko Variant)
Some are gonna chase She-Hulk #2 (Nakayama X-Gwen Variant). Will it see heat? Maybe but I’m not counting on it. Only if X-Gwen becomes a thing. But still a cool Nakayama cover on the mash-up concept.
Everything changes… Hmmm.. Star Wars High Republic #15
Star Wars High Republic #15 (Artist Variant)
Love the cover art for Forsaken #1 (of 6) (Cover A – Max Fiumara). Hoping the story is just as good.
Forsaken #1 (of 6) (Cover B – Paulina Ganucheau)
Lion & Eagle #1 is right up my alley. I really love Ennis on war writing duty and enjoy all the graphic novels he puts out on true stories as well.
Transformers #40 (Cover B – Brokenshire) is just an awesome cover. Love it!
Been some buzz over Supermassive (Cover A – Manna & Monti). If it turns out to be more in the long run, could be a good pickup for the long term. I’m not holding my breath though. Breaking into the super hero world that’s dominated by Marvel and DC is a huge hurdle for any new publisher trying to squeeze into. Might still be a fun read though.
Supermassive (Cover B – Costa Abel Durso)
Now I’m confused. Wonder Girl #8 (Cover B – Jeff Dekal Card Stock Variant) has the Dekal cover that also Trial of the Amazons Wonder Girl #1 also has. I’m thinking the Trial is wrong since we now got cover art that has the dressing included.
But still a really cool cover by Dekal.

Congrats in 10,000!!!
Wonder Girl has been cancelled with #7 and the story (and covers) are being published as Trial of the Amazons: Wonder Girl.
Supposedly, Wonder Girl was cancelled with issue #7. So maybe the Trial of the Amazons Wonder Girl #1 is the correct cover?
Congrats on 10,000! I’ve likely read most, this is a great site. Here’s to 100,000 more!!
The Forsaken story is amazing, genuinely great work
