Hello there! Ready to take a look at next week’s new comics and final order cutoffs? Another light week in terms of new release individual comics…
Next week on October 26th, Doctor Aphra #25, Doctor Aphra TPB Vol 4 “Crimson Reign”, and Bounty Hunters TPB Vol 4 “Crimson Reign” all hit shelves in your favorite comic shops.
I did a little breakdown of Star Wars Doctor Aphra #24 yesterday here.
In terms of final order cutoff this week is a BIG one. With FOC for Star Wars Visions 2nd Print, Star Wars The High Republic #1 2nd Print, Star Wars Revelations #1, Star Wars Darth Vader #29, and Star Wars Yoda #1.
Tons of potential keys there. I’m probably going to go a little overboard on teh High Republic 2nd print assuming the art is good.
Peep the FOC section below for links and all variants.
Check out everything new coming up below and get your pre-orders in over at TFAW.

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 10/24/22 this week.
Let’s dive in…

• To some, he was a legend. To others, he was a teacher. Now Yoda is all but forgotten, living in exile and haunted by the past.
