Poyo's FOC Highlight Books for Last Call 08/09/2021 📢

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

Star Wars High Republic Adventures #8. Everyone should have this on their pulls I think. Just so many opportunities for heat on each and every issue that comes out.

Plus it’s been a decent read. I’m still liking it more than the Marvel main High Republic title.

These new Transformers King Grimlock #2 (of 5) covers have been pretty awesome so far. I might be buying just for the covers, particularly if Horley keeps pumping these out for this regular cover.

Really looking forward to Tom Taylor’s Dark Ages #1 (of 6) title coming soon and the first issue is on FOC this Monday.

The black blank variant looks pretty awesome too. I’m not big on the black blank variants but this one just stands out to me for some odd reason. I think it’d look great with some gold signatures on it, don’t even need sketches.

Dark Ages #1 (of 6) (Inhyuk Lee Variant)
Dark Ages #1 (of 6) (Gleason Stormbreakers Variant)
Dark Ages #1 (of 6) (Young Variant)
Dark Ages #1 (of 6) (Black Blank Variant)
Dark Ages #1 (of 6) (Manapul Variant)

Dark Ages #1 (of 6)

Suprisingly, Momoko’s writing has not been so bad on these Demon Days she’s doing both the writing and interior artwork. I’m looking forward to Demon Days Cursed Web #1 myself. Lots of variants for this one to choose from.

Demon Days Cursed Web #1 (Gurihiru Variant)
Demon Days Cursed Web #1 (Ron Lim Variant)
Demon Days Cursed Web #1 (Garbowska Variant)
Demon Days Cursed Web #1 (Frison Variant)
Demon Days Cursed Web #1 (Yoon Variant)
Demon Days Cursed Web #1 (Moore Variant)
Demon Days Cursed Web #1 (Bengal Variant)
Demon Days Cursed Web #1 (Momoko Virgin Variant)

Demon Days Cursed Web #1

I’m not a big Fantastic Four fan nowadays but I do like the Fantastic Four #35 (Cola Variant) (60th Anniversary). And no, that’s not Cola for Coka Cola. But one has to wonder, parents named her Betsy, last name Cola… sure does sound a lot like Pepsi Cola… Hmmmm…

Just like the IDW Adventures series, a definite must pull title is Star Wars High Republic #9.

Most can no longer justify or easily afford an original in NM or better condition. So what’s the next best thing? Facsimile edition.

Ultimate Comics Fallout #4 Facsimile Edition

Deadbox #1 could be entertaining if the story is good. Still worthy of checking out.

I haven’t read it yet myself but been looking forward to it but Last Book You’ll Ever Read #1 (2nd Ptg) gets the second printing treatment. Digging the cover. Could be overlooked at a lot of shops. The story totally sounds like a Netflix movie or show.

Last Book You'll Ever Read #1 (2nd Ptg)

Red Room #1 (2nd Ptg Sketch Cover) gets another printing itself.

And for you Spawn fans out there, Red Room #4 has a 1:10 homage variant to Spawn #1 you should be on the lookout for.

It’s a Scout book, which means if it heats up, it’ll be a quick flip. I’m hoping for a decent read myself though with Corset #1. There’s also the Corset Prestige Ed #1 which I have yet to figure out the difference. If anyone knows, please do tell!

Corset #1

Another Scout book that looks entertaining is Impossible Jones #1 (of 4) (Cover A - Hahn & Kesel).

I made a lot of profit from the NYCC variant but we’re now finally getting the Phantom Starkiller #1 (4th Ptg Glow in the Dark Cover) that glows in the dark. I don’t think people will be caught off guard this round so I’m not expecting much heat initially. It’s a grab no more than 2, one for the PC and then one to sit on as these will appreciate over time I think.

This one makes the list just because I really dig the cover art for Suicide Squad Get Joker #2 (of 3) (Cover B - Jorge Fornes Variant).

And lastly, Batman Day is upon us and we got Batman the World Batman Day Special Edition #1 on the horizon. I like this team but if I’m gonna get this special edition comic I’m gonna have to get the HC as well: Batman the World HC

Batman the World Batman Day Special Edition #1

First app of Scion. Last descendant of Kang in that Fantastic Four.,. Could heat up a tad with the Kang hype. Can’t see a lot of stores going heavy on a $9.99 book. Cola is really good. Love this cover.

New villain “Unmaker” in Dark Ages, on the cover of the 1:50. Miles with symbiote on issue #2.

Nice marvel spec this week.


The prestige version of Corset#1 is magazine sized.

So that was Miles in cover A for issue 2

I remember when there was a special version of, “The Fade Out,” #1 which was magazine-sized. My favorite comic by Brubaker and Philips.


The Fade Out was a great read. Everything Brubaker puts out is good.
