Thank FOC It’s Friday – In Fact It’s A Miracle

Welcome to Thank FOC It’s Friday, a weekly mailing list, similar to The Daily LITG, but every Friday and planned to coincide and cover the demands of Final Order Cut Off. The date when retailers have a last chance to amend their advance orders for comic books without penalty.

A last chance for publishers to promote books while orders can still be added and a time for credits to be amended, new covers to be revealed and a final push given. This is an attempt to sift through them all and find the most relevant items.

You can sign up here or with the form at the bottom.

Now, many retailers will know all this, but some things may slip through even the most diligent retailer’s attention. And if nothing else, it may be useful to try for a one-stop shop that may start some thoughts, even if it doesn’t finish them.

We’ve had some more ComicsPRO Summit coverage – and more to come this weekend.

And more of note
