Every week, hundreds of new comic books hit the local shelves. Many of these are long ongoing titles while others come and go quickly, being mini-series or one shots.
Last fall we visited a bunch of the books and titles that had options or media deals that have not gone beyond the option or if they did, they’re still in the wee early stages of ever getting turned into a show.
This is where we dive into the books that either haven’t been optioned or if they did, it’s long expired that we would all love to see and welcome being adapted into a television show or movie. Welcome to Part II of Books We’d Love to see Adapted.

We mentioned the other day that Terry Moore tweeted the print runs for the second and third prints of ‘Rachel Rising.’ Tweet link.
Well, the third print has gone for as high as $90.
It is closing for $50 regularly now.
I had put out the print run for Terry Moore’s ‘Rachel Rising’ earlier. But one thing was missing, the reprint print run numbers. Well we have them, straight from Terry Moore’s mouth (or at least his twitter feed.)
1 2nd print – 1,350 copies
1 3rd print – 1,200 copies
These are tiny compared to the first print which clocked in at 12,600. Normally I do not mess with reprints as, well they are reprints, but with so few of these available, these could shoot up in price compared to the first print.
We talked about Rachel Rising #1 hitting $200 last Friday. http://comicsheatingup.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/rachel-rising-optioned-for-tv/
But a copy closed out a few days ago (April 21) for just shy of $1000.
A CGC 9.8 copy closed out at $949.99 on eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/RACHEL-RISING-1-CGC-9-8-TERRY-MOORE-FIRST-PRINTING-/111057397710?pt=US_Comic_Books&hash=item19db8967ce
Looks like this price increase could be the real deal. People are already talking ‘Walking Dead’ prices here. I would suggest scouring stores not to secure copies while/if you can.
With the heat being on Rachel Rising back issues, I though it would be nice to see how many copies of each book have been put out. So here is the estimated print run:
Thanks to Rpenny88 at comic book realm for the info.
MTV and several other news sites are reporting the Indy Gem ‘Rachel Rising’ by Terry Moore has been optioned for a tv series.
Terry Moore, best known for his 1990’s book ‘Strangers in Paradise’ and for more recently ‘Echo,’ has another hit in his hand with the “thinking man’s” horror book ‘Rachel Rising.’ With it being optioned for a tv show, could prices be on the rise like with ‘Sixth Gun.’
Yeah they have started to shoot up. One copy sold for $200 while other copies have b.i.n for $75-$99. We have to see how auctions end for a true price but this one is out of the stable.
Issues 1-6 going for $75 currently with 60 views and 17 watchers.
