I read this post and went out and grabbed a DI on eBay just in case...figured it probably spiked already, but maybe it'll double...then I realized 2 things :

1)I already have the book in 9.8 and didnt even remember until I just found it
2) I spent 75.00 for another 9.8 and after taxes and shipping it ran me about 95.00...if the book doubles ...after eBay fees...I may clear 30.00 for a heck of a lot of work and time...

And ...who from this group did I give my MAXX 1's to for free last year when I cleared out my collection?

Nothing like a $ .50 book becoming the next hot thing because of a movie announcement.

According to Comichron Darker Image 1 was the 8th biggest seller with the Maxx #1 being the 12th biggest seller of the year.

I couldn't find Darker Image's sales numbers for March. However, Comichron puts the Maxx #1 direct sales numbers between 1 and 1.1 million. clickable text

The good news for anyone who wants a copy of the regular issue is that My Comic Shop still has NM copies of Darker Image for 1.60 each, or they were when I check 5 minutes ago.

Towmater...it's ridiculous...I literally gave them away when I cleared out my 19 long boxes last year...most of my books I gave away on these boards. My wife was like "why are you getting rid of those' and my response: "I promise you..none of these will ever be worth a dime...just clearing out garbage"....reminds me of when I cashed out my 401 to invest in euro Disney back in the day...now I'm sitn home with no money and 1000 copies of secret wars 2..and dont even get me started on the 5000 shares of Ripple that I bought at 1.40

and a Gold Foil issue and a platinum issue too. I think the different colored Maxx #1 ashcans are going to see increases in prices too. There were 4 of them - blue/red/yellow/black. I've never seen a black one in person. Its a unicorn.

I checked eBay's prices - yikes! Will people pay 20.00 soon for a raw copy? Unreal.

I would like to type Congrats to Sam Kieth though. I've always liked the way he draws!

With this announcement maybe we are sveral leaps closer to the Liefeld Image properties being brought to the big screen.




To be serious for a second, I would like to see a Shadowhawk movie though. I've always thought this was an underrated cover.

@BrianGreensnips about $34 with tax and shipping. I won't know if it's worth it until I invest another $30 on pressing and grading. It was the only newsstand on eBay at the time. Several others that appear in lower grade have popped up since.

Also it isn't mine until it's in hand, hopefully it'll ship soon.

I tossed out several long boxes back in the day that were full of Image and Defiant comics. I'm guessing there were easily a dozen copies of Darker Image #1 in those boxes.

At the time, they were best used as birdcage liners.

Nice newsie. Trying to find the earlier Image 1's in high grade newsstand is not easy. This one took me a while as well as Wetworks 1.

I am curious who broke the news about the Maxx? Certain locations consistently break news and then when its wrong they hide behind the shield of "speculation".

@Hcanes No idea who broke it but The Hollywood Report wrote about it at about 2:00 yesterday afternoon.

Channing Tatum, Roy Lee Team to Adapt Sam Kieth Comic 'The Maxx' (Exclusive)

"It is unclear if Free Association and Vertigo’s adaptation will be a series or feature. The producers are actively meeting with writers and filmmakers to find the right take for the material."

I don't think he'll be acting in it. I'm hopeful he just liked the comic growing up and wants to help with the production.

either way it was worth the price and potential for me. The newsstand edition has been going around $350-400 in 9.8 before this was announced.
