Ram V is one of the more exciting writers at DC Comics, his Future State catapulted him onto Justice League Dark, Catwoman, and Swamp Thing.
Two weeks ago, Boom! Studios announced one of their latest original series, Joyride, was being promoted from a 4 issue limited series to an ongoing series. A month ago, we speculated that retailers would bet on the series. Yesterday, we tipped you off that the first issue was going to a 2nd printing. All of this points towards Joyride heating up.
A look at eBay reinforces that trend. The first printing has been selling for $11, $10, and $9. Even more noteworthy is the more rare, old school ashcan, which was given away at ComicsPRO and WonderCon that recently sold as high as $29.
The series, which I described as "pretty much Runaways in space", is about a group of kids that steal a spaceship to escape a fascist Earth and go on a joyride to explore the universe. Written by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing (Batman & Robin Eternal) with art by Marcus To (New Avengers), Joyride is one to watch.
