I had a conversation with a large regional retailer that is in with the creative team behind Wild Blue Yonder, the hit and sold out creator owned book from IDW. We often trade speculation info back and forth and I know this retailer to be a stand up guy who is in the know. I am not going to name the retailer or the shop, it’s not Larry, because I appreciated the info.
What I was told today that the deal is almost done and the ink just needs to meet the paper. When that does I can give more official word than this cryptic post. But, it looks like the book Wild Blue Yonder, which the first two issues had small print runs,(especially the second issue), will be picked up for a movie deal. I had been selling variants for the book, both Phantom and Third Eye, and did well with them (I do regret selling the triple signed Phantom and Third Eye Variants now.) My advice on this is to pick up several copies of 1 and 2 in advance and be ahead of the curve on this. Prices have already risen on this book due to the heat and print run, but once it gets out about the movie (and once it’s official), look out.
