FOC

For those who aren’t familiar, FOC, or Final Order Cut Off, is when publishers and distributors require retailers to get their orders in. Printers then print according to that number (sometimes with overages). So, if you want to absolutely guarantee you get a book, best bet is to order it before FOC. Final Order Cut Off is Monday 1/31/22 this week.

IDW

The IDW Publishing era of Star Wars comics is coming to an end and the reigns to the IP are being handed over to Dark Horse. No solicits from Dark Horse for April Star Wars releases yet, so we’re looking at May for the earliest sign of Star Wars Dark Horse comics.
