So that FCBD will be first Miles as the moniker Spin Spider for those that thought it would never come into comics.


Already happened in FCBD 2022…

I’d love to see a new Umbrella Academy volume in 2023, but I’ll take the FCBD book:

I can’t believe we’re taking about FCBD already. I haven’t put my Christmas tree up yet!!!

That linear thinking is old news. I’m putting my Christmas tree up for 2024 next week.

looks like retailers have the books now.

anyone got spoilers for the Marvel and DC books ?

I know one store that got them in that would maybe let me look but won’t let me take it probably. I could ask for a peek?


So what’s going to be the best reads to grab for FCBD this year? Any thoughts?

I am curious why they’ve already announced that they’re reprinting their Gold FCBD titles (“Marvel Zero”)

(with 1:50 incentives, now I’m looking at it)

That non-linear thinking is now old news. I’ve put my Christmas Tree in a box where it is perpetually either set up or not set up to be determined on Christmas day for the next few years. Schrodinger’s Tree
