It was bound to happen, hype built up on “The Sixth Gun’ stemming from the announcement that NBC optioned it for a TV show. When the NBC passed on it, prices dropped. (Do not get me wrong though, this is a great book.) This ends up creating what stock traders call “bag holders,” as in being left holding the bag. The thing with it is, NBC could still make the show in one of it’s subsidiaries. And Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt are still shopping it around. This has happened with several hot books such as ‘The Test’ which burned white hot and then dropped off. Oddly, this did not happen to ‘Chew’ #1 after Showtime passed on their option
There are currently a couple of copies of ‘Sixth Gun’ number 1 sitting on eBay that are real steals.
Here is the regular edition for $12.50 with a few hours left:
(Edit: 80 views and now up to $14.50)
(Edit 2: 177 views and closed at $92.78, Anyone else bid on this?)
And the Free Comic Book Day Edition for $5.50 with 2 days left:
(Edit: Now up to $7.00 I threw some bids on it)
(Edit 2: Still only at $7.50)
This book had peaked well into the $300 range.
We will have to see what happens with the options for ‘The Damned.’
