Hollywood Daze: Punk Rock Jesus #1

hitlist

Some very interesting news came out today via Comicbooksheatingup. It seems that Sean Gordon Murphy (The Wake, American Vampire) has been receiving interest from New Line Media Entertainment for optioning his creator owned Vertigo series Punk Rock Jesus. Hinting at this via twitter a few days ago.

Punk Rock Jesus is pretty much written for the screen – and was ignored by certain stores in the US based on its subject matter. This has resulted in sporadic reviews – however the idea for Punk Rock Jesus – A reality TV show starring a clone of Jesus Chris – is not only original but very evocative. This news has resulted in one or two sales of raw NM conditioned copies selling for $10 to $15 – with Fine conditioned copies flying off ebay at cover price.

Vertigo’s Punk Rock Jesus #1 is a book to be looking for.

Week in Review: July 1: Canada Day Edition

Screen shot 2015-07-01 at 6.01.21 PM

A lot has been going on in the last few days and here is a run down of a few things I havn’t talked about. Also With Marvel announcing 40-something titles to start at issue #1 in October I’m not sure what to think about buying Marvel books. 

The Squirrel Girl Second / Third Prints of the Ryan North Series seem to be a hit with special variant covers each with a word spelling out “Squirrel Girl Kicks Butt !!!”. The clear winner is Squirrel Girl #5 Second Print – featuring a Venom / Squirrrel Girl and the immortal letters – “!!!”. This book (3.99 book) has been selling for around $10 AND has a lot of potential to continue going up.

Some big news out of hollywood this week relating to two titles.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, originally published by Titan comics and created by Wally Wood (the real creator of Daredevil) has been optioned for a movie. This is big news because the Thunder Agent books have almost always been in bargain golden age bins only getting attention largely because of there connection to Wally Wood. T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1 published in 1965. DC recently bought the option to publish new T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents comics pre-NEW 52, written by Nick Spencer, and it was largely panned by the comic book community. T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1 from 1965 features the first appearance of Dynamo and WILL increase in value as more movement is made on the project.

Screen shot 2015-07-01 at 6.41.31 PM

Another title that was picked up for a hollywood project – this time a television series is Jeff Smith’s RASL. Jeff Smith is most notably known for his self-published book Bone – republished by scholastics and available in almost every public schools book library. Rasl is a little more adult but still in the vein of Jeff Smith’s other universe building work. RASL #1 has steadily sold for $20 in near mint condition at Comic Conventions and occasionally on ebay. Currently CGC 9.8s are selling for up up $100 and raw copies are on the rise.
The book to look for is the Comicspro Retailer Variant. Only available to a few select retailers, this book has under a 1,000 print run and is the book that will increase the most in value in the next few days. RASL #1 is a book to be looking for – hopefully this leads into news and hollywood interest in  BONE.

WORD?!? Dan Harmon’s Rick and Morty

Screen shot 2015-06-28 at 3.20.19 PM

Rick and Morty is a cartoon network show with a cult following, created by Dan Harmon (Community). Rick and Morty’s comic book from Oni Press has been a sell-out success, being released on April 1, 2015 both issue #1 and #2 have sold out at Diamond and these two books seem to be trending upwards.

RICKMORTY_1_4x6_COMP_SOLICIT_WEB_large
In the past ten days Rick and Morty #1 First print has been selling anywhere from $6 to $20! 
In the past few days Rick and Morty #2 has been selling for upwards of $20!
The Rick and Morty #1 variants are also doing crazy things – with the Emerald City Comic Con Variant being the clear winner – with an average sale price of $25.

THESE are two books you should be looking for and holding onto!

Week In Review: June 27 , 2015

hitlist

I havn’t done a post in a while and there a few things I need to talk about that are probably old news.

This book has been heating up for a few reasons. Its in the ultimate universe which is cooling down right now so most stores are not ordering it so it has a low print run and most stores don’t have it, and it features everybody’s favourite character Deadpool. Ultimate Spider-Man Web-Warriors #8$_12

This book has been selling for $10 to $15 on ebay. Will it last? This isn’t like the Hulk #13 which has cooled down a bit – this book has a much smaller print run and has a lot more potential of holding its value.

Matt Hawkins, creator of Think Tank and Postal has suggested on his facebook page that both titles are being optioned for tv-shows and that full announcements will be coming out of SDCC in two weeks. Think Tank #1 first prints have been selling for $25 as a result of this news and a lot of people have been jumping on the SDCC Variant cover – which was released before issue #1. I have talked about this before.

DIG052556_1-1
Right now I think the book to look for is Postal #1. Think tank has been rumoured and talked about before but Postal has no Hollywood connections. There are some sales on ebay above $10 for Postal #1, but this book can still be found in the wild. The Variant covers probably have the most potential. You have until SDCC to buy as many copies as you can before this book will explode.

Quick Piece on SDCC:

I am going to a do a longer post on what SDCC exclusives you should be looking for. Closer to the show I’ll have the list. Expect that next weekend. But be thinking about the Skybound 5th Anniversary Box Set its described as

Skybound-5-year-box
“This limited edition box set includes 10 Skybound #1 issues, each featuring a special 5th anniversary cover treatment.  Titles include: THE WALKING DEAD, INVINCIBLE, THIEF OF THIEVES, GHOSTED, MANIFEST DESTINY, BIRTHRIGHT, SUPER DINOSAUR, CLONE, WITCH DOCTOR and OUTCAST BY KIRKMAN & AZACETA. The box set also comes with a Skybound branded flash drive loaded with digital collections of these titles’ first volumes. 20 of the boxes will have randomly inserted redemption cards for a chance at CGC graded 9.8 first prints of these titles, with the label signed by Robert Kirkman. Also look for randomly inserted sets that feature all black and white variant covers of these special issues.”
And as shown on a few message boards, these black and white editions look like this.

Something to be thinking about – The books in these boxes are going to be crazy!

Hollywood Daze: WHEN WILL THEY END? Imagine Agents

Screen shot 2015-06-23 at 1.03.09 AM

This was pointed out to me by Indy. Indy I have no idea what to link here so I am linking your great facebook page and your INDY’s Picks BOC Thread. Both are great resources you should check out! 

It was announced today that FOX had just closed a deal that involved Michael Ketan starting in and producing an adaption of the Boom! Studios four part series, Imagine Agents. Unlike some of the previous FOX comic book project announcements has a main stream actor already pegged to have large involvement with the project – it will be fun to watch how this progresses.

Screen shot 2015-06-23 at 1.01.40 AM
Imagine Agents is about the police of imaginary friends so imagine men in black except instead of hunting aliens its Imaginary Friends of 6, 7 and 8 year olds. This book would translate well in the big screen.

Right now the books to be looking for are Imagine Agents #1 (there is also a 1:15 “virgin” art variant that up to a few hours ago was available on the Boom Studios website) and the limited to 100 Imagine Agents #1 Detroit Fanfare Variant. The Detroit Fanfare Comic Con no longer goes on and I remember passing this book up. Now that its selling for $50 on ebay and has a lot of potential to gain traction I’m kicking myself.

Easy money to be made on this one. SOLD OUT :(cbldf What will this mean for Scalped #16 or Scalped #43?
