The onslaught of Comic-Con-timed movie deals gets an early start with news that Watchmen producer Lloyd Levin has picked up the rights to Terry Moore’s Echo.
Variety reports the deal was for “six figures.”
The follow-up to Moore’s long-running Strangers in Paradise, Echo debuted in March 2008 as an ongoing monthly under the creator’s Abstract Studios banner. The series centers on Julie, a young photographer who witnesses the explosion of a high-tech battle suit. The liquid shrapnel fuses with her body, turning her into a living weapon.
In addition to Watchmen, Levin has produced the Hellboy live-action and animated features.
Terry Moore has teamed up with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab on a limited edition “lettered” version of the Strangers in Paradise Omnibus. Now I know some smart ass out there (other than me) is thinking: “Aren’t all comic books lettered? How else would we read them?” In this case, lettered means it’s limited to 26 copies — A through Z — and it includes the following:
- One set of the strictly limited three-volume hardcover SiP Omnibus edition
- An original drawing by Terry Moore
- A bottle of “Parker Lily,” a fragrance based on Terry Moore’s beloved epic created by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, and strictly limited to 26 bottles.
All sets can be available for pick up at Comic-Con in San Diego, or will be mailed in the first week of August … except for the “A” edition, which is up on eBay right now. The auction, which is currently over $1,000, ends tomorrow. The set costs $500 on the CBLDF site.
“See the girl on the horse? I’m writing a one-shot about her and her friends. Not yet sure when it will come out, but wanted to share the buzz around here. Some people just won’t stay quiet… know what I mean?” he writes.
