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 vengeance in a dark fantasy world doomed by a grave mistake; Spider-Gwen moving to the main Marvel Universe; a dream summer turning into a nightmare; dragon-poaching; a return to the fantastical land of Blacksand; a new Giant-Size X-Men special featuring Angel; various Blood Hunt tie-ins; crime noir in Brighton; Space Ghost being a vigilante not a chat-show host; and Bears + Pirates + Vikings + Queens!

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!

HEARTPIERCER #1 – A new dark fantasy series from Bram Stoker Award-nominated horror writer Rich Douek and artist Gavin Smith. Atala thought she was saving the world when she killed the last unicorn. Instead, hunting the great beasts wound up dooming everything. Betrayed and left for dead, the world is now overrun by nightmares. And Atala has one thing on her mind: revenge.

BEAR PIRATE VIKING QUEEN #1 (OF 3) – Bears. Pirates. Vikings. And Queens. All battling for their claim to determine what the world will become. With 72 pages rendered in stunning watercolour artwork, this gorgeous, high fantasy story is sure to be one of the most beautiful and thought-provoking books of the year. And what’s cooler than bears, pirates, vikings, and queens, spilling blood to make their countries?

SPIDER-GWEN THE GHOST-SPIDER #1 – Gwen finds herself trapped in the 616 for good! She truly becomes a Ghost-Spider now she has to live full time in a universe where Gwen Stacy died years ago. But why did she leave Earth-65? Why isn’t she supposed to suit up? Who will get hurt when she does? And why aren’t the other spiders supposed to know she’s here? 

We will automatically pull the above title for Reservation Service customers with SPIDER-GWEN SMASH on their pull list. To opt-out, please email us ASAP.

TOXIC SUMMER #1 – A nightmare beach party that will keep you up all night… if you can live long enough to tell the tale! Best friends Ben and Leo planned to work as lifeguards over the summer after they graduated high school. It was going to be non-stop late-night bonfires, hot guys and no regrets… until a toxic spill on the beach transformed their dream summer into a waking nightmare. Mix one part Riverdale with one part The Creature from the Black Lagoon and drink it down fast because this bi-monthly horror shocker comes packed with enough acidic sludge, perverted beach maniacs, and ill will to ruin anyone’s first summer away from home!

SCALE TRADE #1 – In a modern-day world one step removed from our own, dragons are a highly respected – and highly endangered-species, but poaching is an existential threat. When a young idealist joins the federal agency tasked with managing dragon populations, he quickly discovers that the entire system is corrupt. After seeing firsthand the cruelty of the system, our newly radicalized dragon saviour takes matters into his own hands!

Eisner Award nominated writer Steve Orlando (Wonder Woman, Spider-Man 2099) teams with Megan Huang (Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) for a fantasy-meets-reality story that’s sure to make your heart race and warm it as well.

SPACE GHOST #1 – Greed and corruption flourish in the darkness between stars. With the territories of the Galactic Federation spread far and wide across the vastness of space, pirates and hijackers ransack the distant colonies with cruel disregard for the innocent scientists living within them. Yet there is a cosmic vigilante who metes out justice throughout the galaxy, bringing vengeance to those prey upon the defenceless.

Some say he is a policeman who has abandoned the strictures of the law. Others say he is a phantom, the sole survivor of a war-torn planet. And those who have survived his wrath claim he is more a force of nature, able to bend the very elements of Creation to decimate his enemies. They call him the SPACE GHOST – and his adventures begin here!

Award-winning writer DAVID PEPOSE (Punisher) and superstar artist JONATHAN LAU (Vampirella Strikes) kick off this action-packed series with a surprise attack on Space Colony Omicron – home of the brilliant scientist Dr. Jerrod Keplar and his young children, Jan and Jace, as well as their pet monkey, Blip. With the colony’s defenses overwhelmed, all seems lost – but these ruthless pirates didn’t count on the wild card that is Space Ghost!
