Shock hits your local comic book store on April 11, but thanks to AfterShock, Monkeys Fighting Robots has an exclusive 23-page preview for you.
The talent on this project is impressive with the likes of Neil Gaiman, Brian Azzarello, and Cullen Bunn to name a few.
Side note – Do you know what a FOC is in the comic book industry? Final Order Cutoff is the last day comic book stores have to adjust orders before a book goes to print. For independent publishers, this is a very important day. If a book is marketed properly and has generated a word of mouth buzz, this will encourage readers to add books to his or her pull list before the FOC. For Shock, the FOC is Monday, March 19. If you like what you see in the preview; call, email, and or text your local comic book store before Monday.
