The Wednesday One – 01/24
Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 1/24
Welcome to another Wednesday. Day 12 of being sick. I'm better than I was, but damn this thing is no joke. It is making it hard to keep up with the funny books. They are a good escape though. There is a “One” this week and it is a great cover. A good number of books to read and some awesome covers to squirrel away in the old PC. Let's jump right in.
Abbott #1 Cover C Variant Tula Lotay Cover – Has a great feel.
Batgirl Vol 5 #19 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover – This is good, but his others have been better. Take a look and see if you like it.
Legion (Marvel) #1 Cover B Variant Bill Sienkiewicz – This cover is good and this one may have grabbed a little heat.
Blue Beetle Vol 4 #17 Cover B Variant Tyler Kirkham Cover – One of Kirkhams better ones. Great detail.
Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 #794 Cover A Regular Alex Ross Cover – This Ross is great.
I didn't see anything that was super no which is good.
Maestros #4 – I really like the art in this book, but time will tell how the story does.
Action Comics Vol 2 #996 Cover B Variant Dustin Nguyen Cover – Always have action on the pull. It is consistently good.
Nightwing The New Order #6 – The last issue. The trade will be out before too long if you aren't reading it currently.
Black Magick #10 Cover B Variant Tula Lotay Cover – I'm behind on this, I might wait for the next trade to catch up I liked what I read so far and It was optioned.
Gasolina #5 – I read the first 2 and they were good. I know a few people that read it and say it is good. I want to catch up, but we will see.
Redneck #9 – Donny is hot and this book is still going strong.
Justice League Of America Vol 5 #23 Cover B Variant Doug Mahnke Cover – This has some buzz I think some new character (Promethea?) is joining the JLA, but I'm not sure. I'm going to flip thru it at my lcs.
Abbott #1 Cover C Variant Tula Lotay Cover – Sounds okay. I might flip thru it. The Lotay cover is cool.
- X-O Manowar Vol 4 #11 Cover E Incentive Jay Anacleto X-O Manowar Icon Variant and Ninja-K #3 Cover E Incentive Tomas Giorello Ninjak Icon Variant are 2 high ratio Valiant to keep an eye out for. If you find em cheap enough, flip them bad boys.
- Teen Titans Vol 6 #12 Cover C 2nd Ptg Variant – I'm not big on 2nd printings, but if you missed out def grab one. I'm might grab one for grins.
- Avengers Vol 6 #677 – iirc we are still expecting a new character Challenger.
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.)
Amazing Spider-Man Venom Venom Inc Omega #1 Cover B Incentive Gabriele Dell Otto – Not his best work, but seems to be selling for around $100. I figure it will stay around that or go down a little. This is still around $100 give or take. One went for $65 anther for $120, but most ~$100.
Cool cover and skip look back. Double Bonus.
Teether #1 – Cool cover no prediction – This is all over the place. cover to 3x cover.
Ice Cream Man #1 – I had this as a read. no spec. – This heated up but seems to have settled around double cover. I think this is a one-shot so dump em quick.
Call of the suicide forest #1 – Not on any list – This jumped up, but has settled at a few $ over cover.
A read look back. Triple bonus!
Avengers Vol 6 #676 – No spec. – This book is being considered the 1st full app of Voyager. This was hitting $15-20 a copy and then undercutting brought it back down to cover. If you can grab one for cover it is probably a good idea. This has a chance to have long-term legs.
The “One” is a great cover and there a lot of great books this week. Some great reveals (Thanos) and crazy endings (Tec). Thanks as always for reading. Let me know if I missed anything. What are you looking forward to this week? Let me know and have a happy Wednesday.
