Below are some Black Comic Lords picks for the June 17, 2022 Final Order Cutoff (FOC)*
(Note: The best way to ensure that you get the new comic book issues you want is to make a pre-order with your local comic shop (LCS) before the Final Order Cutoff (FOC) date. Placing Pre-Orders for comics are extremely important!!! Pre-ordering your comics inform publishers about what books people are interested in and helps them to determine what books and comic book characters to continue to produce in the future. In short, your pre-FOC order is your vote.)

ANT comes with our highest possible recommendation.
