Comic Orders Due by 27th April 2024

This is your weekly reminder that Final Order Cutoff (FOC) comic orders are due by 10am on Saturday! Send an email over to shop@proudlion.co.uk to add any of these titles to your orders or pull list. This week’s FOC includes fabulous celebrations of the LGBTQIA+ community, the aftermath of recent events for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and a preview of the next phase; an explosive new chapter of Scarlet Witch’s story; new Blood Hunt tie-ins; two fascinating original graphic novels; new comic adventures of the Rugrats; and much more!

Some publishers are no longer offering later printings, and some titles sell out on release. Orders placed after FOC rely on extra stock being available, so get your order in today so you don’t miss out!

If you want to choose a specific cover, make sure to let us know in your email! Otherwise you will receive whichever cover we order (typically the Main Cover, or Cover A).

DC PRIDE 2024 #1 (ONE SHOT) – DC’s Eisner and Ringo award-winning Pride anthology returns! Dreamer makes a first-time pilgrimage to her ancestral planet, Naltor in a story by Nicole Maines! Poison Ivy goes spore-hunting on Portworld with Janet from HR! Steel (Natasha Irons) works up the courage to face Traci 13 at the Oblivion Bar’s Pride party for the first time since they broke up! Plus stories featuring Superman (Jon Kent), Aquaman (Jackson Hyde), and more in a volume celebrating how the LGBTQIA+ community is everywhere and belongs anywhere – even the very furthest reaches of the universe!

X-MEN WEDDING SPECIAL #1 – You are cordially invited to Marvel’s first woman-to-woman wedding – the union of Mystique and Destiny! In the classic tradition of Fantastic Four Annual #3 and X-Men #30, this anthology will be a must-read for every comics fan. And with a couple as complex as these two, you know there’s a lot more to the story. Party crashing! Villainy! Romance! Featuring contributions from Kieron Gillen, plus the Marvel debuts of award-winning writers Yoon Ha Lee (Ninefox Gambit, Machineries of Empire) and M. Louis (Agents of the Realm)!

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES ALPHA #1 – What’s the world like without the TMNT? Since their time-spanning victory over Armaggon, the Turtles have started to pursue other interests, leaving a void in New York among humans and mutants alike. This special issue explores the effects this change has on those connected to the brothers, from Old Hob to Jennika, across the five boroughs and all the way through Mutant Island. It’s hard to tell how important someone is until they are gone. And who better to write such a story than Tom Waltz, the man who scripted the first 100 issues of IDW’s series and the co-writer of The Last Ronin, and artist Gavin Smith!

Also, get your first glimpse of what is coming in a special prequel to the new TMNT #1, written by superstar scribe Jason Aaron (Scalped, Batman: Off-World) and drawn by white-hot artist Chris Burnham (Batman, Inc., Die!Die!Die!). Donatello has had a hard time since he came back from the future, and he’s found himself in an unexpected place.
