Don't know, but I have #1 on my pull list. Did it become the flipper's delight yet?

It's a very good read. Next walking dead? I don't know. Guess it depends on how the movie turns out.

I doubt it's very flippable. Movie option was announced well before release (I think two months ago) giving enough people time to add to pull list.

@ninjarobert, thanks for the info. I didn't know it was already optioned. I just read the synopsis at Previews World and thought it sounded interesting. I might pick up a copy after work since my pull list comes to me monthly.

not sure if it was on my list - probably not, seems like the same dish of food just arranged differently (Walking Dead, Revolution, Handmaids Tale, Fahrenheit 451 etc. etc. ad nauseam )

Ever notice how the dystopian versions of the future it's usually the US that's gone hell and everywhere else is pretty much ok?? I think I'm getting burnt out and numb to these types of stories.

I thought The Strain was a cool take on the genre. Even enjoyed the TV show.

At this point though I don't feel there is any room left for more zombies....

Hey!? I'm not sure what Fahrenheit 451 you're referring to but Ray Bradbury's book ROCKS!

@sportshort yes, yes, 451 is great...just saying though at this point I can't handle any more comics or books, shows, movies etc. in which the US Manages to either F the world or just themselves - I just need something different and that particular theme has grown old for me.

Weren't Mad Max and Mad Max 2 The Road Warrior set in an Australia? That's kind of the bar in the dystopian future arts for me.

@Towmater Yep actually mad Max 1, 2 and 3 are set in Oz. God only knows where the reboot was set at. Anyway movie reboot was good. Silver paint and shinny 😛

It's going to end up in the Outcast territory...pushing 100K print run and a majority of those purchased were probably solely multiple copies by the spec crowd to flip because it was optioned....which at that print run, good luck.

Lots of variant covers, too. Several exclusives to LCS around the country. Print run has tons of copies but lots of diff covers.

Walking Dead had a low print run and came out of no where. The next time we see the "next" Walking Dead it will be too late.

That being said, I anticipate the print run of this book to be huge since it was optioned before it came out which helps drive the speculation craze.

If the print run was under 8000 then it had a print run more than double that of TMNT #1 (3275).

I Believe I heard that this issue was open order and fully returnable at a later date. Shops could order as many as wanted and return unsold copies at a later date.

Not a spec book but a fully promoted book

Sounds like a lot of effort/contrivance was put into making sure this book sells through heavy at the retail level. This doesn't typically translate well into resell value.

I was responding to @Hcanes Walking Dead post. Allegedly, the Walking Dead #1 had a print run under 8,000. I think the next Walking Dead is going to be Farmhand. Although, it had a print run around 27,000.

I think the Turtles will always be a better investment that the Walking Dead. The Turtles are generational and keep being reworked for the next generation of kids. Meaning they always fit into the memories of people. The same can't be said for the Walking Dead.
