The Wednesday One – 12/27


Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 12/27

Hope everyone had some good holiday fun. Let's see what is dropping this last week of the year.


Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 #793 Cover B Incentive Ryan Stegman Variant 1:25

Symbiote Spidey with dual Desert Eagles, this is the “One”. This book is hot and is seeing some action. Sales averaging $35 with a high of $50. It'll probably drop to $25 after the undercutting. I think it will end up around $30 in a week or two.

Phoenix Resurrection Return Of (Adult) Jean Grey #1 Cover H Incentive Stanley Artgerm Lau Green Costume Virgin 1:100

A variation of the regular cover A. It is a cool cover, but I'm thinking the print run will end up being around 80-100k. Sales are few and it is hovering around $100 for solds and bins, but no sales recently. This book won't be hard to find, but only grab if you can find it for $70 or less. I think the market will flood from flippers on Wednesday. I think it will sit around $100 for a week or two but will start dipping down after. Long term it is a $75 or less book I think. What do Y'all think?

Cool Covers


Thanos Vol 2 #14 Cover B Variant Rahzzah Phoenix Cover

I like this cover. I doubt it will every see gains though. Thanos is a good read and Donny Cates has stepped it up.

Phoenix Resurrection Return Of (Adult) Jean Grey #1 Cover F Incentive Jenny Frison Variant 

A great Frison cover, but will probably have a high print run. I will try to pick one up after it drops from $25. I think this ends up being a $10-15 book.

Black Panther Vol 6 #168 Cover B Variant Ken Lashley Phoenix Cover

Not too many of these Phoenix covers are good, but this is another that has some flavor.

Eternity #3 Cover A Regular Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic Cover

The variants aren't nearly as good as this A cover and something about the tone of this one is right on.

 Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 #793 Cover A Regular Alex Ross

Another great Ross.

Glitterbomb Fame Game #4 Cover B Variant Miguel Mercado Cover

Kinda has a Parrillo vibe, but with a good face.

Batgirl Vol 5 #18 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover – This one is good, not great. It is a fun cover though.

Blue Beetle (DC) Vol 4 #16 Cover B Variant Tyler Kirkham Cover – These have been hit or miss, but I do like this one. Definitely worth a look.

Skip it

Game Of Thrones Clash Of Kings #7 Cover E Incentive Mike Miller Virgin (I couldn't find a pic of the virgin variant so I used cover A) 

These seem to have died. I really don't see any movement on them.

Riverdale #9 Cover A Regular Photo Cover

I'm still not a believer in these photo variants. I don't think most people that watch the show care about comics, but I could be way off.

Read it


Doomsday Clock #2 Cover A Regular Gary Frank Cover 

This book is good so far and #2 will probably set up a lot in this story. I can't wait.

Wonder Woman Vol 5 #37 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover 

Another Frison WW for the collection. A good read also.

 Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi Storms Of Crait #1 Cover A Regular Marco Checchetto – 

I love canon and a tie-in into TLJ is cool. Also, this Checchetto is better than the Hulk from last week.

Hawkman Found #1 Cover B Variant Jim Lee & Scott Williams Cover 

Metal has been an awesome read. I can't wait to grab this one.

Batman Creature Of The Night #2 – So far a cool mini.

Detective Comics Vol 2 #971 & Action Comics Vol 2 #994 – I always grab these.

Flash Vol 5 #37 – One of my favorite reads.

Nightwing The New Order #5 – So far a cool read.

Redneck #8 – I need to catch up on this book. It lost a lot of heat since it came out.

Void Trip #2 – The first was fun, I hope the second issue delivers.

Bonehead #1 – New Image #1s have worn out their welcome lately, but I'll flip thru it to see if it grabs my attention.

God Complex (Top Cow) #3 – I might stop after this one.

Thanos Vol 2 #14 – I'm on board for a while. Still curious who the Cosmic Ghost Rider is.

Street Fighter Reloaded #4 – $1 reprints mean grab one.

Gasolina #4 – I like it so far.

Black Eyed Kids #15 – BEK is a good indie.


  • Valiant has a few ratio variants if that is your bag, might be worth a flip if you can get em and for cheap. X-O Manowar Vol 4 #10 Cover E Incentive Felipe Massafera, Eternity #3 Cover E Incentive Adam Pollina Variant Cover
  • Marvel has 3x True Believers books that are all about the Phoenix. Grab a few as they are only $1
  • Star Wars Adventures #5 Cover B Variant Arianna Florean Cover – I saw this mentioned as the 1st app of porg and this the first porg cover. I'm a canon junkie and I don't care. No one cares, I have never heard anyone asking for the 1st app of Ewoks why would they ask for porg. That being said, I'll probably grab one for some stupid reason.

Bonus look back – how did last week do a week later?

 How did last week's spec end up doing? We take a look at last week's predictions and see if we did OK one week later!!!

(Last week's spec will be quoted like this. What it really did will look like this.)

Incredible Hulk Vol 4 #711 Cover C Incentive Marco Checchetto 1:25 –  Is this a $35 book or a $75 book? I think it should be a $35 book. This has seemed to settle around $50. 

Marvel Two-In-One Vol 3 #1 Cover H Incentive Alex Ross 1:50 – There are a few sales right under $30 and one at $35 recently. I think this has a floor of $25 and will eventually come back up to $35ish. This has seemed to drop from $25-30 to $20. 

Double bonus look back!

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 #792 Cover C Incentive Ryan Stegman 1:25 – Presales hanging around $30-40, but will it stay there? I think it does stay between $25 and $35. Probably a long-term slow riser. Last week this was selling around $50+ which is great and this week more of the same, but a few at $40 and one auction at $60 

Amazing Spider-Man Venom Venom Inc Alpha #1 Cover C Incentive Gabrielle Dell Otto 1:50 – This might be hard to get and is fetching $100+. I think there will be a Wednesday drop from undercutting and the eventual hater wave. I think it drops right below $100, I don’t see it getting below $75 though unless the 1st app rumors are true. If they are this book could shoot up quickly and be a $150 book by the end of the week. This book finally is seeing an upswing to $150 as copies dry up. It will be interesting to see how this book does in a few months. 

Batman White Knight #3 Cover B Variant Sean Murphy Cover – This may gain some heat in the next few weeks. I don’t think it will be a Wednesday flip. – I missed the spec boat originally. I figured the market would flood quickly, but it seems this heated up to a $10-15 book. This week it seems to still be a $15 book. Cover A has seemed to slow down which was to be expected. 

Doctor Strange Vol 4 #382 – No prediction – This book has quietly become a $10 book. Keep an eye out. 

Darkhawk #51 Cover C Incentive Dan Mora Variant –  None, I think I skipped this one. I totally missed that this book was getting some action earlier this month. It hit a high of $40, but seems to be down to $20ish. 



Happy New Year to all! ASM #793 1:25 is the “One.” What books are you grabbing this week? DId I miss anything do you agree with the “One”? Let me know below and as always have a great Wednesday!
