Until today, the last successful sale on eBay for the comic Trees by Warren Ellis and Jason Howard, was on August 31st for $2.
And now today, twenty-two first issues have suddenly sold with a bunch of other issues too, for over $5. Expect that to be the start.
I bloody love Trees. A proper John Wyndham-y sci-fi filtered through post-modern sensibilities with a touch of Edge of Darkness.
And now NBCUniversal International Studios have optioned the rights, to be adapting for the TV by Tom Hardy's London-based Hardy Son & Baker production company, also working on the screen adaptation of comic series 100 Bullets.
And oh look, Bleeding Cool announced the existence of Trees first. I'd forgotten that.
