From 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, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Projects in development under Skybound Galactic include adaptations of Kirkman’s Thief of Thieves and Josh Williamson and Mike Henderson’s Nailbiter.

      1. Cyber force is a preview I believe. Most of what I am seeing online and what I remember when i collected the character point to Witchblade #10. Also, if we look at how the market responds, Witchblade 10 is the winner.

    1. The funny thought about ToT is it actually got better when Diggle started writing it but I think by then the ship not only sailed but was starting to sink..

    2. Also, I’m actually happy to say that ToT was my first big flip ever back in the day. I dumped my #1 for around $80 along with a small set of issues 2-6 thrown in as well.

      1. Funny, this was mine as well! I had several copies of #1 and remember driving around town to several comic shops to find more copies of #1 when it became hot! I’m pretty sure I sold mine for around $60-80 too. Didn’t #1 of ToT hit $100 at some point?

  1. There’s a rare variant master edition of #10 limited to 25 copies also a limited DF variant that people are asking the most for.

  2. There needs to be an official comic book to movie/tv “Option day”… just like retail has new DVD or Music or Video game day. This way I can find sellers that have multiples of what will most likely be sitting in my “option” box for years and years and years. At least I could save on shipping by combining that way. Right now one of the very few recent indi options out of many out there I have high hopes for is God Country.

    1. Did this morning. Didn’t go nuts, but got some of the cheap ones. Still a few cheap ones out there but doubt they will last much longer.

  3. The Darkness was definitely on-track for a movie before. Witchblade even put out a theatrical poster the last time it was supposed to be a feature film; then disappeared into oblivion. I love the original Witchblade series and it’s various spin-offs, but am not holding my breath for the latest round development hell. Think Tank was also previously optioned. And the Kirkman production company doesn’t mean much, because we’ve had similar news before, like the one led by Fraction & DeConnick… whatever came of that??
