Super cool surprise delivery from IDW Publishing: THE BIGGEST BANG trade collection! They did their usual great printing and design work. Class act! Snag yourself a copy from your local comic shop!
Todayâ€™s the final order cutoff (FOC) for IDW Publishing‘s THE BIGGEST BANG #1! If you want to be 100% sure your local comic shop has a copy for you when it comes out on May 18th, let them know before they close this evening! (You can still tell them you want it after today or just snag it on the stands after itâ€™s released, but todayâ€™s when shops place their final initial orders. If comics were movies, the FOC is kind of how the opening weekend box office is determined.)
If youâ€™re on the fence about the book, check out what some of the best comic creators in the business had to say about it in the image above.
