I did not know where to put this but I figured this may be a good place because they are popular moderns but can someone point me in the direction perhaps of where I can find a decent list of the Spawn homage covers? Maybe some print run info if avail, or pics of all the covers themselves.  Heck sales data is appreciated as well.

 

I have hummed and hawed for far too long about collecting them I literally have to put myself out of my own misery and start the hunt.  Just need a gentle push towards some info.

Thanks!

Oh man, I would sit back and wait for the Spawn hysteria to be over before going after those books.  They are very, very pricey now....sadly I need all of them for my Spawn run, so I'm going to wait, it might be awhile but I'm patient.....

Was kinda poking fun at that very fact....also its Hench Master (I misspelled it), probably just a throw away character but these days who knows.

Yeah there is a neat story behind these and the guy running the company.
He has alot of background in comics since being involved in Valiant before he left. 
And was a darling of the speculator market as well for quite a bit.

Excuse my ignorance, what makes that book so great? 

Wondering the same thing. Seems like it doesnt take much these days to cause a spike in prices for random book...low print run maybe :screwy:

People are nuts, rarity shouldn't make something a collectible. The art isn't that great imo. I would NEVER pay that kind of money, that value is not sustainable.

I know all about it. When Dinesh tweeted about it, I tried to get my hands on one.

I assume these comments are about The Hero Trade? I assume the cover (well, the logo, anyway) was intentionally made to look like some rando indy book from the '90s (as the logo is not well designed). This is the first (unofficial) book from Bad Idea, a new company that a lot of the people from the Valiant relaunch are involved in. This particular book is by Matt Kindt and Dave Lapham. So, first book from a new publisher that contains some first appearances. And apparently there are some cameos 1sts for some of the other titles to come snuck in here as well. Considering that a few of the people involved in the company also have tied to movie and television production, I would say there is a fair chance we'll see some of the titles developed into other media.

They have some of the covers for coming titles on their instagram: https://www.instagram.com/badideahello/

I appreciate the info, but the chances of that publisher sticking around in a dying comic industry are slim to none. I wish them all the luck, I wouldn't pay $1000 for a book, that is an extremely volatile price. That said I think the comics coming through indiegogo are more exciting than that. The amount/level of effort and excellent customer service coming from Richard C. Meyers, EVS, and Jon Malin are bar none. ART BELOW: Graveyard shift 3, Jawbreakers: grand bizarre, Cyberfrog: rekt planet, and Kozor: descent into madness.

I'm not a big fan of 12-page previews (READ: sell it as soon as you can), but Lapham has always been solid in my book - I like his body of work. :bigsmile:

If the insufficiently_thoughtful_persons that adapted Preacher had stuck more closely to what happened in the books it’d of been a much better show. I still enjoyed it but wish they would’ve stuck with the source material. 
 

Finally, we agree on something . . . :foryou: I really love the Preacher series - dynamic, unpredictable and exciting. As to the TV show, I couldn't even watch it
