It’s that time again, where I tell you what’s really grinding my gears for the week of July 31st, 2019.
Some weeks it’s mostly likes, other weeks it’s dislikes.
So what’s grinding my gears this week?
I like it. It’s a new printing with new artwork that has the new hero Star on the cover.
The other thing that’s great about this is it will give consumers a chance to grab a copy since so many missed out due to not being overlooked as a surprise book and reports of some retailers jacking up the price on release day to secondary market prices.
There’s still flip potential but don’t go heavy I say. Buy a few and stash a few. This new gal hasn’t proved herself yet, we know hardly anything about her. Could turn out to be a villain possibly. A year from now no one could care. Hopefully in the upcoming Captain Marvel #9 and or Captain Marvel #10 we learn more about her.
So if you missed out, you can pre-order Captain Marvel #8 (2nd Printing).
Farmhand Gets Optioned
Out of most of the recent media deals and options announced coming out of SDCC, the one I like the most is Farmhand.
Now we all know an option is just the first step in a long, lengthy process of turning paper to film. If this actually gets past the hurdles of becoming a film and if it’s done right, this could make a great creepy type of show.
The Boys on Amazon
I keep seeing the commercials and previews for The Boys on Amazon and really need to find the time to watch the show. Click the image to watch the trailer on Amazon if you haven’t seen it yet.
I never read the comics so like any show based on the comics, I feel the need to have to read those as well before starting so I think I’m gonna have to break down and start buying the Boys Omnibus books to read.
I’m not gonna spill too many details here but I just want to say that I had some CHU sticker proof’s made and I’m quite pleased once they arrived.
I’m in the process of coming up with some more proof and designs for stickers and other swag for the upcoming NYCC, where we’ll likely be handing some CHU stuff out.
So for those who are going to make it to NYCC, you’ll have to hunt us down and find us to get some possible CHU swag. Hopefully after NYCC, we’ll find a way to make them available to the masses who want a sticker or anything else we come up with to share your love of CHU.
This week is a lot of likes. I guess I’m in a good mood since I’ve been selling a lot of books from all the SDCC news and other media news related to comics.
