FOC Highlight Books for Last Call October 23rd/24th, 2022

FOC is the last chance to put in your orders with your comic shops and likely get at a discount for pre-ordering. Here’s a few of the highlights for this week.

Picking Alien #3 (Coello Variant) for the cover alone, which is pretty slick if you ask me.

It’s going to be heavily ordered but that’s the price one pays when it comes to new Spider-Man related characters. So Amazing Spider-Man #14 is a must. Buy and hold, this one is likely for the long term pay off I think.

Darth Vader title has introduced so many new characters into the Star Wars Universe, these are no brainer pick ups. Star Wars Darth Vader #29 is a must and it’s also a pretty slick looking cover as well for the regular.

Star Wars High Republic #1 (2nd Ptg) gets the second print treatment and it’s a joy that they did a brand new cover instead of doing the inside interior cover this round.

Yoda gets his own title. This is a must!

The force is still strong with the Skywalker story line. We might be tired of the movies but I still enjoy all the characters from this time frame so Star Wars Revelations #1 is another pick up for sure.

The hit new series continues with Strange Academy Finals #2 where new characters have all the potential to pop up and cause a stir among the spec crowd. And if there’s nothing of importance, enjoy the read as this title has been great.

As a Thanos fan, Thanos Death Notes #1 I’m all in. This brings back the vision Thor had after Black Winter in Thor #6. I’m sure this will not be the end of the infinity stone hammer yielding Thanos.

Resident Alien is one of my favorite shows currently on SyFy. I’m excited for the new mini-series Resident Alien: The Book of Love #1.

Junkyard Joe #1 (2nd Printing) gets a second print. First prints still pretty easy to come by if you missed out.

Voyagis #1 (of 5) has my attention cause I really dig the cover art and the fact it looks like this has no other covers (not counting any store exclusives if there are any, I didn’t bother looking).

The big one coming out of DC and Image on FOC this week is Batman Spawn #1. There’s going to be a lot of covers and the print run is going to be massive. Buy now if you wanna read, limit yourself, don’t overpay for ratios and maybe wait for a lot of these covers to hit the big sales as some retailers will likely be sitting on copies for quite some time as they’re likely chasing the ratios like consumers.

For you big dogs with a lot of cash burning in your wallets or purses, you can go ahead and dish out some cash for some of the higher ratios available:

Batman Spawn #1 (Cover L – 1:25 Joshua Middleton Variant)
Batman Spawn #1 (Cover M – 1:50 Brett Booth Variant)
Batman Spawn #1 (Cover N – 1:100 Jim Lee Variant)
Batman Spawn #1 (Cover O – 1:250 Todd McFarlane Inked Variant)
Batman Spawn #1 (Cover P – 1:666 Todd McFarlane Signed Variant)
Batman Spawn #1 (Cover Q – 1:666 Greg Capullo Signed Variant)
