Posted by Jon Garnett on

Friday Night FOC Roundup!

Happy Friday everyone! Titles on cutoff MONDAY 11/12/18! It is a huge week for FOC and new releases. If you are interested in adding any of these titles to your pull, please message us ASAP! The majority of these books will be in store on 12/5 or 12/12!

From Dark Horse, and the Berger Books imprint comes Laguardia #1 in stores on 12/5. Set in an alternative world where aliens have come to Earth and integrated with society, LaGuardia revolves around a pregnant Nigerian-American doctor, Future Nwafor Chukwuebuka who has just returned to NYC under mysterious conditions. After smuggling an illegal alien plant named "Letme Live" through LaGuardia International and Interstellar Airport's customs and security, she arrives at her grandmother's tenement, the New Hope Apartments in the South Bronx.

From DC, Green Lantern #2 is on FOC and in shops on 12/5. With this amazing variant cover by Francesco Mattina! Someone is transporting a mysterious cargo out of the Great Void, and it spells trouble for the universe at large! Hal Jordan interrogates a member of the Spider Guild for answers and uses his pheremones as an interrogation tool, but can he extract the info in time?! Meanwhile, Volgar Ro makes a play for Earth while its emerald protector is off-world!

Also on FOC from DC is Martian Manhunter #1 (of 12). No matter what you know about J'onn J'onnz, you're not prepared for this! The acclaimed team of writer Steve Orlando and artist Riley Rossmo (BATMAN/ THE SHADOW, BATMAN: NIGHT OF THE MONSTER MEN) reteam for a reinvention of the Manhunter from Mars in this twisted, unexpected series. Back on Mars, J'onn was about as corrupt as a law officer can be, and when a reckoning comes for his entire society, he'll get a second chance he doesn't want or deserve! One shocking murder, and an unexpected fragment of the Mars he lost, will change his life-and the course of the Earth-forever! With covers by Riley Rossmo, Josh Middleton, and a Blank!

 

Lastly from DC, and in stores on 12/12 comes New Talent Showcase 2018 #1! The latest graduates from the DC Talent Development Workshops show off their skills by telling stories about some of DC's greatest characters including Batman, Catwoman, John Constantine, Wonder Woman, Zatanna and more!

From Image, and in stores on 12/5 is Die #1 written by Kieron Gillan with art by Stephanie Hans. DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. If Kieron's in a rush, he describes it as "Goth Jumanji." That only captures a sliver of what you'll find in oversized debut issue-where fantasy gets all too real.

Also from Image, Freeze #1 hits the stands on 12/5. The entire human population is frozen by a mysterious global event... all except Ray, and only he has the power to unfreeze them. Now with the fate of the world in his hands, he must figure out what is going on, how to set things right again, and answer the question: does everyone deserve to be saved?

Mark Millar returns with a new series at Image called Prodigy #1 (of 6) with art by Rafael Albuquerque, and in stores 12/5. Edison Crane's not content being the world's smartest man and most successful businessman-his brilliant mind needs to be constantly challenged. He's a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, genius composer, Olympic athlete, an expert in the occult, and now international governments are calling on him to fix problems they just can't handle.

Lastly from Image, Self Made #1 hits the stands on 12/5. Introducing a new creative team everyone will be talking about-superstar talent writer MAT GROOM and artist EDUARDO FERIGATO. When chaos besieges the kingdom of Arcadia, warrior Amala Citlali sees it as her chance to escape her clearly-defined role-and to change her destiny. But she could never have predicted that it would also be her chance to confront her God. In his debut editorial role, comics veteran KYLE HIGGINS guides this intimate, worlds-spanning story of self-discovery.

From Marvel, Defenders Doctor Strange #1 is in shops 12/12. THE BEST DEFENSE" PART THREE! In a desolate, barren landscape, the Master of the Mystic Arts fights what may well prove to be his final battle-alone, unaided, friendless...Except...what's in that bag that Stephen Strange is carrying with him?

Defenders Silver Surfer #1 is also in shops on 12/12. "THE BEST DEFENSE" PART FOUR! Shall not the Judge of All the Earths do right? Norrin Radd is not so certain. But it falls to him who is the Silver Surfer to decide which planets will live...and which will feed the unending hunger of the world-devouring Galactus! A single honest person can tip the balance...if only the Surfer can find one in time! And the Train rolls on...

In shops on 12/12 is the Fantastic Four Wedding Special #1. Come and celebrate the impending nuptials of the Thing and Alicia Masters with a Ladies Night Out as only the First Family of Comics can do it! Guest-starring She-Hulk, Medusa, Crystal and more, it's the bachelorette party Alicia never expected-and one whose ribaldry will be interrupted by the arrival of a Surprise Super Villain! (And no, we don't mean Johnny Storm!) Meanwhile, the Thing has an unexpected meeting with his future father-in-law, the Puppet Master! Plus, Hembeck! The Fantastic Four family tree! And more! R.S.V.P. at your local comics retailer this December, and don't forget to kiss the bride! Will have an ArtGerm variant cover!

 

Also in stores on 12/12, Miles Morales Spider Man #1. Balancing his normal life, school, parents, etc...and super-heroing has never been easy, but when the Rhino and a cadre of mysterious criminals start plaguing Brooklyn, things take a dark turn. And Miles doesn't even know the half of it yet. Eisner Award-winner Saladin Ahmed (BLACK BOLT) and Young Gun Javier Garrón (ANT-MAN & THE WASP) bring you the latest incarnation of the coolest character in the Marvel Universe!

In shops on 12/12 is Star Wars Age of the Republic Darth Maul #1. A living weapon of rage and bloodthirst, DARTH MAUL has stayed in the shadows of CORUSCANT waiting for his chance to strike against the JEDI ORDER! However, since tasting his first blood, the SITH lord struggles to contain his desire for destruction and questions the wishes of his methodically plotting master. Could Maul have had another path in life, or was he always fated to follow a dark road? Guest-starring DARTH SIDIOUS!

Lastly from Marvel and in shops 12/12 is Typhoid Fever Iron Fist #1. Typhoid Mary is stronger than ever, and Spider-Man and the X-Men know that better than anyone as they've been forced to fight among themselves. As her powers grow stronger, it's only a matter of time before Typhoid Mary turns Manhattan into her own personal playground - if not her own personal ashtray. Luckily, IRON FIST is in town and willing to lend a hand...er...fist. But will the Master of Kung Fu be able to stop the flames from spreading, or will he just add fuel to the fire?

From Boom! Studios and in stores on 12/5 is Wizard Beach #1 (of 5). When Hexley Daggard Ragbottom sets off to find his Uncle Salazar, he expects to find the most powerful wizard of the modern age. Instead, he finds Uncle "Sally" only wants to kick back, relax, and stay clear of any kind of wizard politics. So how is Hex supposed to become a great wizard if all the adults are too lazy to teach him? Shaun Simon (The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys) and Conor Nolan (Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Giants) present a humorous look at magic, family and just kicking back.

From Dynamite Entertainment comes Hack Slash Vs. Chaos #1 in shops on 12/5. Cassie Hack, Slasher Hunter Supreme, thought she'd gotten rid of those teenager-perforating undead menaces. But now they're suddenly springing back to life! Cassie and Vlad are going to have to team up with megadeath dispenser Evil Ernie to stop the slaughter, putting them on a path that appears to lead through Chastity, the Chosen, and Purgatori! Tim Seeley returns to his beloved creations to pit them against the world's greatest horror universe and brings back some of the series' most beloved slashers!

From Titan Comics and in shops 12/5 comes Breakneck #1 (of 5). A gritty countdown crime thriller in modern-day Philadelphia, Breakneck is an all-new suspense comic from celebrated crime and comics author Duane Swierczynski (Deadpool, The Punisher, Severance Package, The Wheelman)! When white-collar everyman Joe Hayward confronts his cheating wife, he's plunged headfirst into a terrorist plot that will bring Philadelphia to its knees! With two hours to go, Joe will need all the help he can get - including the government agent his wife may be sleeping with! A perfect thriller for fans of 24, Homeland, and Falling Down, illustrated with every seedy detail by Simone Guglielmini (Near Death), Raffaele Semeraro (Zombie With A Shotgun), and Lovern Kindzierski (Hellblazer, Animal Man).
