Speculator Corner: Generator Rex And M.Rex

Speculator Corner: Generator Rex And M.Rex

Generator Rex launched on the Cartoon Network two weeks ago, airing at 8.30PM on Fridays in the States. About a young boy with nanotech inside his bloodstream, enabling him to create fighting machines from within himself, its launch episode was the highest rated show that night for boys, not just on cable TV but all TV. It beat the launch of the new Ben 10: Ultimate Alien series on the same night. It beat the launch of Clone Wars. Generator Rex is huge, Cartoon Network are ordering more episodes, great things are expected.

And it's based on a comic.

M.Rex, published by Image, created by Joe Kelly and Duncan Rouleau and published by Image Comics, it's from the same stable of creations and creators, Man Of Action, that launched the Ben 10 empire.

M.Rex issues 1, 2 and Preview are usually found in the quarter bin. May I suggest that if you come across any said copies you put them on eBay, pointing out their relevance?

Or indeed, do a little speculation. Currently copies sell for a dollar each on eBay. Some enterprising person is going to snap them up and flip them. Probably by putting Generator Rex in the listing title.

Will it be you?
