BC Mag #1: Hollywood Highs And Hot Comics

Bleeding Cool Magazine article by Rich Johnston.

And it may well be spreading to the traditional superhero books too. Just the announcement that a movie or TV show exists has been setting markets ablaze.

Thief Of Thieves was probably one of the first comics this year to see its price quite so heightened by the announcement that there was a TV series in the offing, as speculators jockeyed to get in position for another Walking Dead-style leap in prices. And we’ve already seen a Season Three jump for those books too. Then the ending of Avengers saw older speculators go through their back issues for anything with Thanos in it, and cleaned up.
