This is your weekly reminder that Final Order Cutoff (FOC) 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 Simon Furman’s new robot rumpus, the hunt for a missing Green Arrow, the first days of the Summer of Symbiotes, subterranean monsters, outer-space capers with a space teddy bear and more with a young Groot, plus the return of Spider-Rex! Roarsome!

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!

ASTROBOTS #1 (OF 5) – Transformers superstar writer Simon Furman is joined by Heavy Metal artist Hector Trunnec to breathe life into the lore of a new mecha toyline, the Astrobots – designed by Aaron Thomas! With food and raw materials running out and climate disasters escalating, the clock is ticking for planet Earth and the race is on to find a new world capable of sustaining human life. New, sophisticated machine lifeforms called Astrobots are sent out to scout far-flung worlds in the hope of building a new home. On Colony World 1, a catastrophic power struggle gives rise to a new all-Astrobot society. Atlas, an evolved mech with a futureproof plan, presides over this nascent civilization. And his plan that does not include humanity…

GREEN ARROW #1 (OF 6) – Spinning out of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths, Green Arrow by DC architect Joshua Williamson (Dark Crisis, Superman, The Flash) and artist Sean Izaakse (Thunderbolts) is an action-packed adventure across the DCU – Oliver Queen is lost, and it will take The Emerald Archer’s whole family to find him! But dangerous forces are determined to keep them apart at any cost!

CARNAGE REIGNS ALPHA #1 – Carnage Vs. Miles Morales! Cletus Kasady is back and badder than ever. During King In Black, Cletus’ soul became trapped inside Extrembiote Armor created by Tony Stark. This now gives him the means to level an untold amount of chaos on New York City and the entire Marvel Universe. Good thing Brooklyn’s very own Spider-Man is there to stand in his way! If he survives their first encounter, that is. What follows is a crossover between CarnageMiles Morales and Red Goblin, and this will be automatically pulled for all customers who get one or more of these titles. To opt-out, please email us by 10am on Saturday.

CULT OF CARNAGE: MISERY #1 (OF 5) – The Summer of Symbiotes continues with Cult of Carnage: Misery! Liz Allen is the mother of Normie Osborn, who she is blissfully unaware is the all-new and all-deadly Red Goblin! But she does know that the Red Goblin has been active very close to her home, and now her late husband’s father – Norman Osborn – has been pulled into that chaos. This forces Liz to use the resources at her disposal as the head of Alchemax to take matters into her own hands and become something the Marvel Universe has never seen before!

SPIDER-MAN 2099 DARK GENESIS #1 (OF 5) – It’s even the Summer of Symbiotes in 2099, as Miguel O’Hara comes face a futuristic and sinister Carnage like never before! Steve Orlando returns to 2099, now joined by Spider-Punk artist Justin Mason!

EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #1 (OF 4) – Spider-Rex returns and comes face-to-face the Venomsaurus! Plus – who is the scary Spider-Killer?! Your favourite breakout characters are back, along with new Spiders who will blow your mind!

GROOT #1 (OF 4) – Before he was a Guardian of the Galaxy, young Groot lived a life of tranquility on his serene home world. But when monstrous invaders attack his planet, Groot must rise to the occasion – and along the way cross paths with a young Kree soldier by the name of Mar-Vell! Dan Abnett (Guardians Of The Galaxy) returns to everyone’s favourite alien tree to reveal never-before-seen moments of Groot’s origin and first adventure! With art from Damian Couceiro (Amazing Spider-Man 2099, X-Force)!

QUICKSAND #1 – A mysterious hole opens in the Egyptian desert, horrific creatures climb out and wreak havoc on a nearby city, then retreat as quickly as they arrived. The planet is left in shock, and assemble a team of elite specialists from around the globe to pursue these monsters and learn more about them. Known as “Canary One,” this team never returns, leaving the world to prepare for the likelihood of further attacks.

KEEPERS OF THE COSMOS #1 – Described as Invincible meets Rick and Morty in a raucous road trip across the cosmos. Meet Lemondrop, a cuddly space teddy bear with the mouth of a sailor, who left the Keepers of the Cosmos almost a year ago. He’s now under arrest by an alien dictator overseeing a fascist state in a neighbouring galaxy and the rest of the Keepers are torn on whether or not to help their old friend. After all, he did end up swindling millions of credits out of the their joint bank account!
