A monkey prince thanks FOC It’s January 9, 2022
Thank FOC It’s Sunday – scheduled to coincide and cover requests for the final cut order at Diamond Comic Distributors on Monday. And now Lunar Distribution and Penguin Random House on Sundays as well. So here is this week’s comic book product that may adjust as demand slips and slides with the emerging economic bubble. Or something like that.
Traditionally, the FOC has been the date on which retailers have a last chance to change their advance comic book orders without penalty. A final opportunity for publishers to promote books when orders can still be added. A time for the credits to be amended, for new covers to be revealed and for a final boost to be given. This is an attempt to sift through them all and find the most relevant elements.
