Patton Oswalt thanks FOC It’s Saturday, July 30, 2022

Thanks FOC It’s Saturday – 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 Sunday as well. So here is this week’s comic book product that may need to be adjusted as demand slips and slides with the emerging bubble economy. Or something like that. Traditionally, FOC is the date when retailers have a last chance to change their advance comic book orders without penalty. A final opportunity for publishers to promote books while orders can still be added. A time for credits to be corrected, new covers to be revealed, and a final push to be given. This is an attempt to sift through them and find the most relevant items.

What’s FOC this weekend?

Minor threats #1 by Jordan Blum, Patton Oswalt and Scott Hepburn launches Dark Horse Comics with this FOC cover by Christian quarter. “It’s tough out there for a supervillain. Not the conquerors of the world, the engines of chaos or the sworn enemies…but the little guys. The ones who put on uniforms, knock over jewelry and are attached to poles. And things are about to get worse. The psychotic Stickman has murdered Kid Dusk, the sidekick of Twilight City’s first crime-fighter, the Insomniac. The Insomniac’s teammates destroy Twilight, turning him into a police state desperate to capture Stickman and prevent the Insomniac from ‘crossing that last line’ from which he may never return. Caught in the middle are the lesser C-list villains, finding it impossible to walk down the street without being harassed by these heroes. With a bounty on the Stickman’s head, the former villain Playtime decides to assemble a ragtag team of villains to take down the Stickman and kill him themselves. Patton Oswalt and Jordan Blum’s first series!”
