FOC is the last chance to put in your orders with your comic shops and likely get at a discount for pre-ordering.
Kicking this weeks FOC picks with some Jack Kirby goodiness as it’s a pretty big and more exciting FOC week for me.
Fourth World by Jack Kirby Box Set is a must for any Kirby fan I think.
Love this regular cover for Star Wars #21. Love the Vader helmet incorporated at the top.
Star Wars Crimson Reign #2 (of 5) is another must for me. I like Ochi so a cover appearance makes it all the sweeter.
Star Wars Crimson Reign #2 (of 5) (Giangiordano Warriors Variant)
Star Wars Crimson Reign #2 (of 5) (Rahzzah Knights Ren Variant)
Star Wars Crimson Reign #2 (of 5) (Crain Enemies Dawn Variant)
Star Wars Crimson Reign #2 (of 5) (Pham Syndicate Variant)
Star Wars Crimson Reign #2 (of 5) (Anindito Connecting Variant)
I’m so tired of Geiger 80-Page Giant #1 (Cover A - Frank) on FOC. They need to make this the final time or I swear I’m going to lose my shit… I also think this was the cause of the paper shortages we’re seeing. 80 pages x 5 covers… Geez Image, is this why this book has been delayed and on FOC this many weeks, you all waiting on the loggers to cut down trees in the Portland area?
Death of Doctor Strange #5 (of 5) ends this mini-series and reveals the murderer. I do like this regular cover I must add.
Star Wars Halycon Legacy #1 (of 5) is another Star Wars must. Lots of variants for this first issue.
I love a good Silver Surfer story and title. Hoping this mini-series lives up to some great reading at minimum for Silver Surfer Rebirth #1 (of 5).
Silver Surfer Rebirth #1 (of 5) (Momoko Variant)
Silver Surfer Rebirth #1 (of 5) (Camuncoli Variant)
Silver Surfer Rebirth #1 (of 5) (Jurgens Variant)
Silver Surfer Rebirth #1 (of 5) (Cheung Headshot Sketch Variant)
My favorite High Republic story currently continues with Star Wars High Republic Adventures #12.
Although it could be better, I still enjoy the Marvel title Star Wars High Republic #13. Definitely still picking up for all the potential spec with characters being introduced in this series.
I like the concept in this one and a pick for those who like a little politics mixed in with their stories. Bylines in Blood #1 (Cover A - Aneke) is coming out from Aftershock Comics.
Silk #1 gets another reboot. I think this is now the 36th volume now for Silk? I might be plus or minus a few volumes… heh!
I’ve been enjoying this new title Human Target by Tom King and Smallwood. Human Target #4 (of 12) continues the mini-series that Tom King prevails at with the more obscure DC characters.
Hoping for a good Garth Ennis read out of Peacemaker Disturbing the Peace #1 (Cover A - Juan Ferreyra).
In with this next one because Chip Z is on writing duties for Batman the Knight #1 (of 10) (Cover A - Carmine Di Giandomenico).
Star Wars Doctor Aphra #18 is one of my favorite Star Wars characters and reads. It’s a must and the potential is always there. It’s not an if but when in terms of a Disney+ show I think.
The additional prints on FOC worthy of mentions:
Hulk #1 (2nd Ptg Ottley Wraparound Variant)
Black Panther #1 (2nd Ptg Alex Ross Sketch Variant) - Don’t seem to heat up all that often but I still love them, the raw pencil sketch is the true sketch variants.
Venom #1 (2nd Ptg Hitch Variant)
I always enjoy a good sci-fi title so I’ll definitely be checking out Bolero #1 (of 5) (Cover A - Vecchio).
Whats the Furthest Place From Here #3 (Cover A - Boss) has been a great read so far. Really enjoying this new title.
Joe Hill is like his dad, a great writer. So I always check out his new titles. This round goes to Joe Hill Rain #1 (of 5) (Cover A - Thorogood).
I purposely skipped the floppy copies and have been waiting on Batman the Imposter HC.
I’ve had this show queued up to watch but have yet to find the time. I did watch the first season episode but I’ve been wanting to read the graphic novels for Snow Piercer as well. Seems like it might be a good time to pick up Snowpiercer Vol 1-3 HC Box Set at pre-FOC discount.
