  1. Great!! I will just buy every single comic that comes out this Wednesday and every Wednesday afterwards. They’re all bound to get optioned.

    1. I’m coming out with a comic called Stick Figure Ninja High for the deaf…All silent…All stick figures, super easy to write and draw! Pure “Option” gold!!!

    2. You’re reading too much into the non-plot….Fine, forget that. Probably too much work anyway. How about a bunch of poorly drawn pet rocks looking for a home, but they are rocks so they can’t move or talk…or do anything…Same panel for 22 pages….Option next month!

  2. I sold one of my ash cans a while back for $10 but the guy returned it cuz he said it had a scuff on a corner and I listed it as NM and according to him it was more of a VF lol. So now I can relist it and see where it ends up.

    1. Well, of course. They want to reserve the rights to a potential story, they explore the options and see if it’s doable, will make them money, etc and then they either proceed or let it die.

  3. CHU called this one a while back and I wisely picked up the ashcan then as well as several copies of the FBCD unstamped.

    1. The thing about Non Disclosure agreements is I have known for a while and could not say anything until the release. Same with Long Lost. But I have been quietly picking up copies for myself.

        1. I have made friends with many, creators and intern have shared stuff with them and they have shared stuff with me. Thanks I cannot disclose until I’m told I can disclose them. Unlike the stock market there is no Law against find copies of the book that you know will be options.
