Informed Comic Book Speculation and Pop Culture News
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.

I have mentioned The Spread and how much I love this book. I mentioned my collection numerous times and people have asked to see it so I have decided to run a cover gallery of the entire series up until this point. All books minus one is from my collection. I will update with print runs. Continue reading “The Spread Cover Gallery”
Kyle Strahm has been a friend of the site well before the first issue of Spread came out. Around NYCC 2013. The site has been a fan of Kyle’s since we first saw the convention teaser way back when. It is always good to hear from him, as busy as he is, and love when he occasionally throws books up for sale. He has two pretty rare signed and graded books up.

Kyle Strahm and Justin Jordan have been very good to me. They let me have first crack at showcasing the NYCC Spread #1 variant from last year. Well, they are doing it again. So they are giving the sneak peek to us first. Here is the NYCC Spread Variant preview for this year:

Kyle Strahm and Justin Jordan’s Spread has been one of my favorite series for a while. The only issue in the series I don’t have is the black and white Convention Art Book. Looks like I will be holding off on getting a copy as a Buy It Now on eBay for a graded copy of the Art Book sold for $1,000.

I think i have made it well known that I am a big fan of The Spread by Justin Jordan and Kyle Strahm. The story and art have hooked me from the beginning and I have talked about the “Lone Wolf and Cub meets The Thing” (sorry, elevator pitch) book since before it began. They also have been pretty innovative with the book. They released the Spread Convention Teaser, both Blue and Yellow versions at NYCC a few years back to drum up interest, they are rare and valuable (glad I have both of them), as well as the black and white art book (these almost never come up for sale). They even started the whole Action Figure Variant craze (I know the SCUD issue was the first but the Spread ones made it popular) with their Spread Action Figure Variants. Anyway, and I digress, they releases a rare book this year which is bringing in good money. One is up for sale at a very reasonable price. Continue reading “One to watch: Spread Cover Album”
if you are going to be at C2E2 this weekend make sure to this weekend make sure to stop by and see Kyle Strahm at table G14. He is going to be selling copies of the exclusive Spread #6 C2E2 variant.
I love Spread, going back to the NYCC promo that came out two years ago. (I have a CBCS Graded double signed Blue, and a double signed yellow ungraded.) I have gotten every cover that has come out, and I am not usually a completist. I know there are a few others on here that feel the same way. That is why I flipped when I saw Kyle Strahm (artist on Spread) had posted a super rare Cover Album on eBay. Continue reading “Auction Watch: Super rare retailer Spread Cover Album hits eBay”
Here is another chance to read on of the favorite series on comicsheatingup.net, Spread. Spread is the story of No and Hope in a post apocalyptic waste land where a “The Thing” like creature inhabits people, animals, the land, and what ever, and they are not even the most dangerous things out there. Continue reading “Trade Waiting: Spread”
Here is an eBay auction for you comic book fans. Kyle Strahm (artist for Spread) brought this one to my attention. Up for grabs on eBay is a Spread Convention Teaser set.

I love when the new comic print run numbers come out. Especially when they come in lower than expected. Sure, there are books coming in with huge print runs (relatively speaking compared to years ago) but the good ones seem to have small print runs. Continue reading “Recent hot comic print runs”
It comes as no surprise, especially to people who were not able to grab a copy, but the uber cool Spread #1 2nd printing has sold through it’s roughly 4,000 copies. Continue reading “Spread #1 2nd printing sold out Spread #2 sold out”
