Comics Final Order Cutoff – 24th June 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 more Knight Terrors, the last wishes of a dying Lex Luthor, a stray dog and his pal in a Blade Runner-style dystopia, a huge Millarworld crossover, epic Hyborian fantasy, merry marching Marvel magic featuring mutants, Miles Morales and more – plus more dastardly DC diatribes from Harley Quinn and other hijinx!

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!

KNIGHT TERRORS ANGEL BREAKER #1 (OF 2) – Heroes across the world have succumbed to nightmares and Angel Breaker might be the final girl still awake! Deep in an abandoned Kobra safe house is a device that can access the dream powers of John Dee, a.k.a. Doctor Destiny. To get it, she’ll need to infiltrate a hall of horrors. To do that she’ll need the help of a professional thief known as Raptor. But they aren’t exactly friends…

KNIGHT TERRORS PUNCHLINE #1 (OF 2) – Punchline would have you believe she fears nothing, but now her fears will be pried out of her in a nightmare world where she’s being hunted by her deepest, darkest nightmares in true horror-movie fashion!

Knight Terrors continues! All Reservation Service customers are reminded that we will automatically be pulling these titles for ongoing series on your pull list: for example if you get Action Comics then for July and August you will receive Knight Terrors: Action Comics, etc.

To opt-out of the Knight Terrors issues replacing your regular pulls (taking a two month break instead), you must email us to confirm before the FOC date for the relevant issues. If you’re happy to receive these Knight Terrors issues, then no action is required, just sit back and enjoy the ride!
