Comics Final Order Cutoff – 21st January 2023

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 a highly capable fantasy warrior looking for work, deadly cyberpunk vigilantes facing horror in a hotel, alien abduction stories, amoral Emma Frost and friends, eye-less nightmares, a new hero’s fall from grace, and He-Man across the multiverse.

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!

LAST BARBARIANS #1 – Sylv is a jack of all trades; fighter, pick-pocket, low-level spellcaster. But in this high fantasy world – filled with giants, magic, and flying fish – if you aren’t a member of a guild, you are persona non grata: completely outcast from adventuring. To be “Classless” is a whole new low. Which would be fine, except she has her disabled seven-foot-tall brother to take care of. She needs a job to support them both, or they’ll be dead in a ditch in a few weeks. Her only hope is a quest from a sketchy cleric…

LIQUID KILL #1 –It’s just another night of luxury and vice at a mysterious island hotel, until members of a notoriously violent, all-female sadist-slaughtering vigilantes lay siege. Demanding compliance or death as they search for their kidnapped leader, Liquid Kill eliminates all threats with ease, until something is unleashed… something hungry. In thisblood-soaked cyberpunk future, these fearless killers were prepared for debauchery and evil, but not a foe as truly monstrous as this.

MASTERS OF UNIVERSE MASTERVERSE #1 (OF 4) – A brand-new MOTU anthology series written by Tim Seeley, featuring a framing story with art by Eddie Nunez – in the depths of Castle Grayskull, the Sorceress debates the value of He-Man with Zodac. To save her champion, she must take the Cosmic Enforcer on a tour of the multiverse! First, a bumbling and barbaric He-Man is pursued by a hungry green tiger in a tale drawn by the legendary Sergio Aragonés! Then, a stop in an Eternia where the power of Grayskull summons a completely different warrior in a horrific ghost story illustrated by Kelley Jones! Also featuring art from David Rubin, Claudia Balboni, and many more!

BLUE BOOK #1 (OF 5) – An ambitious, non-fiction comic depicting real accounts of UFO abductions – starting with infamous Betty and Barney Hill abduction – from the New York Times bestselling and award-winning creators James Tynion IV (Something is Killing the Children, The Nice House on the Lake, The Department of Truth), Klaus Janson andMichael Avon Oeming (Powers).

IMMORAL X-MEN #1 (OF 3) – The Immortal X-Men? Never heard of them. Here in the dark future of the Sins Of Sinister, there is only the Immoral X-Men. These X-Men are adored and respected… so why have they sworn to crush the world?! Well while they do, Emma’s going to take a few minutes out to crush Mister Sinister.

BETSY BRADDOCK CAPTAIN BRITAIN #1 – You’d think things look pretty good for Betsy Braddock – theOtherworld is settled, Braddock Manor has been restored, and her brother Captain Avalon is at her side. Only it turns out, good ol’Blighty doesn’t want a mutant menace carrying the shield of Captain Britain. Quest-less and country-less, Betsy must now define her new role.

TORRENT #1 – Michelle Metcalf is Earth’s most happy-go-lucky hero, Crackerjack, until tragedy pushes her to cross the line from hero to vigilante. A brand-new superhero comic from Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, X-Men Gold, Star Wars: Revelations) and Justin Greenwood (The Old Guard: Tales Through Time, Future State: Gotham), the team who brought you the critically acclaimed series Resurrection.

SANDMAN UNIVERSE NIGHTMARE COUNTRY VOL 01 TP DIRECT MARKET EXCLUSIVE VAR – A direct-market exclusive softcover edition of the Corinthian-starring Sandman Universe miniseries from acclaimed horror writer James Tynion IV (Something Is Killing the Children, The Nice House on the Lake) with lush, gorgeous art from Lisandro Estherren (Redneck) and a who’s-who of superstar guest artists! Art student Madison Flynn has been plagued her whole life by visions of a terrifying man with mouths for eyes… but strangely, it’s not the Corinthian. When the Corinthian himself learns of this Smiling Man, it will send him on a quest across the nightmare country that is the waking world, where he will grapple with vicious sadomasochists, deranged venture capitalists, and the embodied spirit of America itself!

BATMAN SPAWN #1 (ONE SHOT) UNPLUGGED – An unlettered, black and white inks-only reprint version of Todd McFarlane and Greg Capullo’s hit Batman Spawn one-shot! “It’s always exciting whenever us artists can present our work in as unfiltered a manner as possible,” says McFarlane. “This book will let you see the true skill of how Greg Capullo does his masterful storytelling… and every line that we both put down.” Capullo adds, “You guys did it again! You came out in stunning support for the Batman/Spawn crossover. The next treat we have in store is a raw release, stand alone, black and white version! No words. No color. Just the raw power of line art. I’m certain that you’ll dig it as much as Todd and I do.”

This title is for CUSTOMER ORDER ONLY.
