The Lost Adventures of Jake Speed

Recently I was doing some searching to see if I could track down the Jake Speed novelization. I've never found a copy for sale and I was starting to think that it was a rumour based on the prop books used in the movie.

However I had a look at the imdb message boards for the movie and Wayne Crawford (the actor and co-writer of the film) comments on some of the threads including this 

Wayne confirms that the novelization happened.

However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that part of the advertising for the film was a four strip prequel comic featuring Jake Speed against Dr Kanker which can be found 

As far as I could find Jake Speed hasn't been used much in fanfic but I did use him in my story 
The Interview


  1. I see that Amazon, B&N, and Goodreads and elsewhere advertise the novel, but all state not available. A shame. Is Melon a real person?

  2. No according to the movie it's the pen name that Jake and Des use to write the books. It comes from Jake's favourite city and Des' favourite breakfast food.

  3. I watched the movie again last night and caught it this time. A play on words (LOL). Neat. Thanks.
