Week in Review October 16: Hollywood Catchup

Now that Preacher is closer to seeing its premier in mid-2016 it seems that Seth Rogen and team are shopping around other Garth Ennis projects. It seems that Seth Rogen is set on developing The Boys into a television series. The Boys is about a team of police agents that police or more, put in place, the super-heroes of the world. Its a brutal, sexual, awesome book in the same vein of Ennis’s other catalog of work. The Boys #1 to #6 were first published by Wildstorm which when bought out by DC cancelled the book. Ennis stated later that the book was cancelled by DC for its largely negative sentiment of Super-Heroes and Super-Heroe behaviour outside of comic books. The series was later picked up by Dynamite Entertainment where it ended at issue #72. The Boys #1 is going to see a huge increase from the $10 to $20 the book sold for last week.

Alias #1 also seeing a very nice increase in price for RAW sales while the Netflix series comes very close to premiering. At NYCC all the Jessica Jones actors got to sit down with Press and talk about the series – it was there that Wil Traval talked about his character, named Simpson – based on post-Vietnam War super Soliders. After this interview the rumour and suggestion started coming up that Nuke (Frank Simpson) would be appearing in Jessica Jones – which is very possible – Nuke sounds strikinly similar to the character Travel was describing. Nuke’s first appearance is a book you should have anyways, Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s collaborative effort in Daredevil #232 made Nuke one of the most unique villians of the 80s – and is a definite book to be looking for.

  1. @ Stephen Dennis… Thanks, I looked that up and it looks like it is a go. Sounds like it would do much better as a TV series than a movie anyway. I decided to look for Issue #1 but there aren’t a lot out there right now. Found a Sketch cover of issue #1 in higher grade for $17. Low risk if nothing happens with the show, and looks like it could be a fun read at the very least if nothing comes of it.

      • Interesting. I know nothing of the series. I do have the Family guy/Hack Slash FCBD, but that is about it. What is the very appearance of the Character?

  2. The 2004 One-Shot is the first appearance of the two leads (Cassie and Vlad) and a supporting cast member named Lisa.
    This is the only one I could find on eBay since the announcement:

    I think they were selling in the $30-$50 range prior to this.
    The big bad of the series first shows up in #20 of the Devil’s Due series. This issue is still very cheap on eBay.
    (For what it’s worth the other three supporting characters show up in issues #2 and #3 of the Devil’s Due series and the first issue of the Land of Lost Toys limited series.)
