Posted by Jon Garnett on

Friday Night FOC Roundup!

Man, I just cant seem to get this damn thing written up on Friday! Last night was filled with a puking 3 year old so I had to manage that instead of typing up FOC notes, but NO EXCUSES! So here we go! These titles are on Final Order Cutoff this coming Monday, June 17th!, and most are in shop on 7/10! If youd like to GUARANTEE that you get a copy, please let us know before the end of the day on Monday June 17th!

From Dark Horse and in stores on 7/10 is Black Hammer/Justice League #1 (of 5). DC Comics and Dark Horse Comics present the ultimate superhero crossover event of 2019! A strange man arrives simultaneously on Black Hammer Farm and in Metropolis, and both worlds are warped as Starro attacks! Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman, Superman, and more crossover with Golden Gail, Colonel Weird, and the rest of the Black Hammer gang!

Next up from Dark Horse and Critical Roll is Critical Roll Vox Machina Origins Series II #1 (of 6). The unlikely heroes of Vox Machina are back in action! Join familiar faces from Critical Role's smash-hit first campaign as their escapades in Stilben lead them toward new adventure-and a dire threat to Grog when he goes missing in the night.

Next from DC, is the ArtGerm Card Stock variant for Catwoman #13! Things have come to a head for Selina Kyle in Villa Hermosa. Between taking care of her sister and contending with all the crooks who cross her path looking to give her some bad luck, it's enough to make a Catwoman go bad herself. So maybe she will? "Come now, Selina. Still playing the hero? Stop pretending you're something you're not." It's Lex Luthor's words versus Catwoman's will in this chapter of "The Offer"!

Finally from DC, Event Leviathan #2 (of 6) is on FOC and in stores on 7/10! "The Detectives"! EVENT LEVIATHAN, the new miniseries by the award-winning team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev, continues!

Spinning out of the new hit Boomerang cartoon!

From Image and in stores on 7/10 comes Reaver #1! The continent of Madaras once promised a new start for settlers, but 200 years after its discovery, the war rages on. Deep within this savage and untamed land, a darkness builds at that must be stopped at all costs. To do so, the Imperials assemble six of its most despicable prisoners-a turncoat, a skin eater, a sorcerer and his bodyguard, a serial killer, and the Devil's Son-the only ones who can stop the end of the new world. They are Hell's Half-Dozen. Join JUSTIN JORDAN (LUTHER STRODE) and REBEKAH ISAACS (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) for REAVER-a dark, grim fantasy for a post-Game of Thrones world.

Next up from Image is Unearth #1! When a flesh-warping disease ravages a remote village in Mexico, a scientific task force travels to the inhospitable area to investigate the contamination. Tracing the source of the disease to a nearby cave system, the team discovers a bizarre, hostile ecosystem and a supernatural revelation from which they may never escape.

Next up from Marvel with the one-shots is Wolverine And Captain America Weapon Plus #1! THE SECRET HISTORY BEHIND THEIR ORIGINS REVEALED!

New to LA, coming off of a bad breakup and having a pretty terrible week, Daphne might need to crash on this haunted couch for a while, but having undead roommates might be more than she bargained for! Will the dead be able to help Daphne find the life she's been missing in the big city? From GLAAD Award-nominated Sina Grace (Iceman) and illustrator Siobhan Keenan (Clueless, Jem and the Holograms) comes a story about learning how to make friends, find love, and live to the fullest with a little help from some friends whose lives didn't end at death.
