Joshua Williamson’s Nailbiter Optioned

I have been waiting for this announcement for a long time, but Joshua Williamson’s Nailbiter has been optioned for a TV deal according to Newsarama.

The Characters and concepts first appear in Nailbiter #1

According to Newsarama:

Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment has inked a deal with Sony Television to form a new production company – Skybound Galactic – which will develop television projects based on Skybound comic books as well as properties from other Image imprints.

Projects in development under Skybound Galactic include adaptations of Josh Williamson and Mike Henderson’s Nailbiter

    Sweet, time to sell.

    • Brian says:

      I would wait, honestly. There seems to be very little demand right now, besides the usual sites bumping up the price. I waited and waited to buy when I could’ve gotten it for $10 any time before, and finally bit the bullet. Copies were plentiful even after the announcement.

      • agentpoyo says:

        Yeah, I hadn’t checked sales yet. I commented earlier while lying in bed after waking up.. err, trying to wake up. 🙂

        Maybe with so many options lately, consumers are overloaded and not caring so much as of yet.

    • I think with so many books being optioned and so many shows never seeing the light of day, fatigue has set in.

    I dunno about selling so fast…or at least hold 1 copy…I think if this sees the light of day ,it will be a very very successful show

  3. John E says:

    Man, I was able to pick up a #1 9.8 for $25 a couple of months ago. I knew it would be a good pickup.

  4. Jesus says:


    I have multiple copies of this book, plus it was one of those books that I couldn’t wait to read every month.

  5. Brennan says:

    This book will translate very well to tv.
    I hope it’s an event series rather than an ongoing.

    • Anthony says:

      I think it works well as an episodic “killer of the week” show with the overall theme of the background mystery.

      • Brennan says:

        My fear is that in order to try to make enough episodes to get syndication, they add to the story and the new content sucks (like walking dead) or move too slow.

  6. A. King says:

    Finally I’ve got a ton of these.

  7. Lonzilla says:

    AWESOME! I loved this series so damn much!

  8. Rienye says:

    Bought the Cover A in March last year for $6. Really wanted the phantom variant but couldnt find it cheap back then.
