This has been a fabulous week so far. Not only am I writing this on vacation (Anthony told me I had to or he was going to slash my salary in half. What’s half of zero?) but all the news out from SDCC has been great news for the comic book industry.
Movie and TV deals are being announced left and right. So let’s just cut to the chase. But first, one of the many views from the past week for me.
Rift Gets Optioned
Out of all of the news options, this one I like the most so far. Loved the story and concept and it pretty much had movie or TV show written all over it from the get go.
With a small print run compared to most books, this one has a chance of a bell curve potential I think. With that, I mean its going to go up in value but will likely drop back down. So grab copies if you find them, there’s just not that many out there. It’s a small gamble for sure.
News that Alpha has been cast for the Walking Dead. This is things I like only because I hope we see a slight bump in value for these first appearances, including Beta’s first appearance. There’s a good chance if they’ve cast Alpha, we’ll see Beta along as well.
Mr. & Mrs. Who Cares?
Maybe I’m in the minority but I can really care less about Rogue and Gambit getting married. I can also care less about their own title series.
I’m willing to bet this title won’t last long. Are they really the hottest couple in the Marvel Universe?
Anyone notice Ashley Witter’s cover art? I intended to mention something a few weeks back on her last Doctor Aphra cover but this weeks cover is just as good I think.
I’m really digging her latest art style she’s bringing to the comic shelves. It’s very eye catching and the details she puts in her covers are amazing. If you don’t recall, she’s done art for Squarriors. For me, it just seems her art is getting better over time.
Even if you’re not reading Doctor Aphra, grab Witter’s covers just for the covers I say.
That’s all the love and hate I have this week. Lot’s more love than hate, it’s hard to hate anything when you’re on vacation.
