FOC 04.09.18

From planes, trains, and automobiles on the way back from the Diamond Summit in Chicago, we bring you this week’s FOC notes, now with more editorial.   Xerxes: Though not abysmal, I’m disappointed in the first week numbers.  Miller isn’t the draw he was, and this isn’t for everyone. Going same numbers as what sold as those who bought this were already all in.   Action Comics Special: This looks like it concludes the current storyline so despite being a 4.99 book on the heels of 7.99 Action 1000, this should sell to the previous Action readers like a regular issue.   Curse of Brimstone: We ordered conservatively on #1 and sales were strong for that order. Going 75% of what sold on #1 for this issue.   DC Artist Alley Figs: Interesting take on the classics but, y’know, Batman in sneakers isn’t everyone’s Batman. Might find a different audience than statues like the regular B&W line but at $40 per, it’s not a quick sell for most stores.   DC Core Batman PVC: If you sell the Diamond Gallery figs, you can sell this.   DC Design Trinity Statue: I love this. It’s pricy but for 3 statues in one, of DC’s dynamic trio, simply wonderful.   DC Nation #0: I love this. I know it’s not a traditional FCBD sort of thing but it’s the cheapest of the FCBD offerings and such a great jumping on point that it’s worth ordering more than the million copies DC announced at the Summit. Order for EVERY subscriber customer and bag-stuff it to everyone else. Your cost is 12-13 cents...
