Max is Furiously mad that it wasn’t raining new spec books, but he’s happy with TV and movie spec
Well it was a pretty dry week for spec books last week, so I will cover some of the news that have dropped recently
1. Mad Max Furiosa #1 Regular and Blank covers
Recently Optioned spec picks
2. Southern Bastards #1 Various covers
|Standard CoverForbidden Planet Variant
Third Eye Variant
Heroes Con Variant
This is a great book and I have been reading it since issue 1. The writing and art are top notch and there has been really good character development, with each character standing out and having their own complexities and issues.
I always thought from when I first read this that it had TV Show written all over it and if this does get made I predict it will be massive.
Now this book has never been as popular in UK as it is in US (maybe if it had been based in Essex and called Chav Bastards it might have been!!!) but none the less the news that this had been optioned saw ebay UK quickly cleared of the sparse offerings there.
Highest sale I have seen of issue 1 is £10 ($15) but I've also seen seen sets of issue 1 to 5 go for £49.99 ($75)
No real sales of variants but I can see them selling well as a lot of them are US Exclusive variants.
The most desirable and high priced variant is the Heroes Con variant. When news dropped there was limited amount of it, their website was quickly cleared and then the rest of the stock sold at Heroes Con (check some of the fantastic reports live from the Con by John DeMayo).
Think this book is going to go up and up especially as we get casting news in the future.
