Dirty D’s F.O.C. (9/10/23)

Just when you thought summer was over, here comes the heat! Unfortunately I’m talking temperature outside and not the comic book market.

Another FOC is upon us, CHU’zers. I know I’m not the only one who thinks the market is a little “meh” these days. Even the weekly books have been less than exciting the past several months. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some cool books worthy of picking up, whether it be for the read, a cover for the PC, or even to stash one or two away for the long term. So let’s run through a few that stand out this week.


Ok, let’s get these out of the way. Last month’s DC theme was Rose Besch variants. This month looks to be Chrissie Zullo.

Yes they’re cute. Maybe a little too cute for the content within. But it’s Halloween themed, and who doesn’t love Halloween?! So they get a pass…this month. I’m not too familiar with Zullo’s work….but I’m sure she has her fans who will be grabbing these to complete a set (more are coming in later weeks).


Batman #138 (Zullo Treat or Treat Variant)




Just the Fax


If you “foil-ize” any facsimile of a classic key book, I’m going to buy it. As long as it’s priced right. DC knocking it out of the park lately.



It’s been a while since we’ve seen a shattered variant. Typically these are slapped on modern books (not facsimiles) and they are exclusives (high buy ins). This might be a first for a facsimile edition AND open order. And it will have “Foil Enhancements”. Can it get any better? WHAT?! You can get a DiMasi signed copy for just $7 more??!!
