Poyo's FOC Highlight Books for Last Call 04/19/2021 📢

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

Geiger #1 quickly vanished from the shelves. I can’t recall the last time a new Image title sold out so quickly, at least at my local shop. None to be found a day after release.

So you may want to secure your orders for Geiger #2, as it’s on FOC this Monday.

Geiger #2 (Cover A - Frank & Anderson)
Geiger #2 (Cover B - Hitch)
Geiger #2 (Cover C - Asrar)
Geiger #2 (Cover D - Frank & Anderson)

Ice Cream Man has been hitting their cover art out of the ball park for me. This next one for Ice Cream Man #4 by Turrill is just awesome.

Ice Cream Man #24 (Cover B - Turrill)

Time Before Time #1 is a new Shalvey book I just finished reading a review copy before writing this FOC post up. I really enjoyed it. I love the whole time travel stories when done right. I’m looking forward to the next issue at the conclusion of this first one.

Canto & City of Giants #2 (of 3) is just an awesome character and title. Just a must.

Canto & City of Giants #2 (of 3)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the Last Ronin #3 (of 5) is just an awesome homage cover. Yes, it’s been done before but I’m picking this one up for sure. Maybe there’s a death, since they’re paying homage to you know, that death :skull_and_crossbones: decades ago.

Alright, Black Panther #25 is the end for Coates take on this character so they’re ending the issue with what I think are some pretty awesome Stormbreaker Variants, which I posted in February the full list. But if you can’t bother clicking that link, here’s the list of them all on FOC this Monday:

Black Panther #25 (Cabal Stormbreakers Variant)
Black Panther #25 (Cassara Stormbreakers Variant)
Black Panther #25 (Coello Stormbreakers Variant)
Black Panther #25 (Gleason Stormbreakers Variant)
Black Panther #25 (Momoko Stormbreakers Variant)
Black Panther #25 (Silva Stormbreakers Variant)
Black Panther #25 (Bustos Stormbreakers Variant)
Black Panther #25 (Carnero Stormbreakers Variant)

And then there’s a few more variants for this issue:

Black Panther #25 (Reborn Variant)
Black Panther #25 (Stelfreeze Final Issue Variant)
Black Panther #25 (Spratt Variant)
And then the regular cover:
Black Panther #25

Black Panther #25

Star Wars High Republic #5 is on FOC and with these new Star Wars titles, any issue could be spec gold as there could be a first at any moment. Always a must pickup since all things Star Wars are hot right now and I can’t see that slowing down any time soon.

Just a note, if you weren’t already aware, TFAW got their replaced Star Wars High Republic #3 (Walker Variant 1:25 Ratio) in stock and have them listed.

Nottingham is that hit new Mad Cave title making waves on the secondary market. Not often do we see the second issue heat up more than the first issue…

Well, if you missed out on the first two issues and the first issues 2nd print, you can now score the 3rd print of Nottingham #1 and the 2nd printing of Nottingham #2.

Nottingham #1 (of 5) (3rd Ptg)

Nottingham #2 (of 5) (2nd Ptg)

This last one I pointed out in my Indie Previews a month or so back. I think this one is gonna be a big deal and it’s got some great incentive ratio cover variants as well that will likely be sought out as I don’t think a lot of shops are going heavy on this one and if they do, they’re still not going to have a lot of the incentives available.

Red Room #1


This has to be the most comics I’ve preordered for FOC in over a year. I’m super excited with the books coming out.


What you get?

White #1
GI JOE #281 A
Department of Truth #1 5th ptg x3
Ascencia #5 B (nude virgin by Parillo) x2
Red Room #1 A, D (momoko)

I might get GI JOE #281B if the next B covers are connecting. Also, I’m waiting to see the cover for Usagi Yojimbo #19 1:10.


may i ask where you got the taarna momoko and ascencia from? I did not see it on tfaw.

I ordered the Taarna from gothamnewsstandbooks on ebay since I had ebay bucks. I did see them on Impulse Creations and Golden Apple. I’m not sure who else is selling them. I preordered Ascencia from my LCS.


Is the Geiger Cover D a FOC variant? It’s offered as such on M&M Comics but not anywhere else.

Not sure but I think TFAW has the wrong image for Cover D on their site.

I thought the megaphone icon was an Ax. Wouldn’t an ax make more sense?!

Megaphone, last call was what I was going for with it…

Anyone else notice Silk #1 2nd print is back on FOC again this week ? LOL

Guess nobody preordered it last week.

I haven’t read it myself but I’ve heard it’s kind of lacking… like nothing giving anyone the wow factor. Which is a shame, I like Silk and we need some badass Silk stories.

It was average. Wasn’t bad but certainly didnt stand out.

That’s because Marvel doesn’t want Silk to out do Spider-Gwen.
