Between the purchase of Archaia and the upcoming release of 2 Guns starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, Boom Studios, where the story comes from, is getting a lot of looks from Hollywood. And the rumor swirling the most is that Day Men is the next to get optioned.
The book, Brian Stelfreeze's return to monthly comics, premiered at SDCC and created quite a buzz. There were even reports of some movie studios sending folks over incognito to pick up copies from Boom's booth. Can't let the competition know what you have your eye on, obviously.
First print sold out and a second has been announced, but that's common for comics in todays market, but Day Men has gotten a small bump in the aftermarket. And that was before the movie talk. When option rumors started for Peter Panzerfaust, just the speculation drove up the market value. Are we going to see that again here?
