The Wednesday One 4/18/18
Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 4/18
More Red Goblin madness and the 1000th issue of Action Comics. I'm excited for AC making it to issue 1000 and even though there are too many covers, there might still be a flip. ASM 799 takes a left turn but regardless has the best cover. There are actually a few books with flip potential this week. There are some good covers and great reads so let's jump in.
| Action Comics Vol 2 #1000 Cover K Variant Jim Lee Tour Cover
This seems to be the one to grab. From what I understand it is the only one with the new villain on the cover. No presales, but one listed for $50. I think this might have a less than 3k print run. I only saw them for sale in 2 places so it might be a store style variant. I'm not totally sure.
| Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 #799 Cover C Alex Ross Virgin 1:100
This cover is next level. I really hope I can grab a clean copy for my PC. This book was spoiled online so I'm interested to see if people care about the reveal. The “One” and should be for that epic cover alone. Presales $50-90. I think close to half ratio is a good price for a potential flip. This should be in everyone's PC though. Have I mentioned how good this cover is?
|Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (BOOM Studios) #26 Cover C Incentive Carlos Villa Virgin Variant Cover 1:25
Might be a 1st app and it seems to be hot on the heels of #25 regardless. I don't mess with these, but if you see it cheap might be worth a grab. Presales $50+, a good grab at or below ratio.
|Cable Vol 3 #156 Cover B Incentive Ariel Olivetti Variant Cover 1:25
I think this has heat from the cool cover and it is cool. Presales ~$20. Maybe a flip at $10 or less. I wouldn't be jonesing for it, but if you see it for cheap, near cover is better, maybe grab one.
Weapon H #2 Cover C Incentive Skan Variant Cover
I don't care about this cover. I find it boring, but Skan is developing a following and it is sold out online in a few places.
|Harley Quinn Vol 3 #42 Cover A Regular Amanda Conner Cover
I love this homage. I might even read it.
|Harley Quinn Vol 3 #42 Cover B Variant Frank Cho Cover
The 2nd side of the 2 part cover. Cho has done a few of these connecting cover sets and I have liked them all.
| Avengers Vol 6 #689 Cover A Regular Mark Brooks Cover
Avengers has been good and Brooks has been at the top of his game. Another for the collection.
| Infinity Countdown #2 Cover C Variant Adi Granov Super Skrull Holds Infinity Cover
Granov has been hit or miss lately. This is a hit for sure.
| Star Wars Poe Dameron #26
Noto doesn't get enough love and I like how this looks like a movie poster. I would watch a Poe movie.
|Grimm Fairy Tales Presents Musketeers #3 Cover C Josh Burns
Every so often GFTP drops a good cover. This puts Burns on my radar.
Nothing to write home about.
|Black Hammer Age Of Doom #1 Cover B Variant Skottie Young Cover
I really like the BH universe. Can't wait for this one.
| Mister Miracle Vol 4 #8 Cover B Variant Mitch Gerads Cover
So far a great read. A good run of covers too.
| Evolution #6
This is a great read. I actually stay caught up with this one.
I have mixed feelings on this one. I will check it out at the lcs.
|Iron Fist Vol 5 #80
Damnation tie-in. I like damnation so I've been grabbing the tie-ins. I like this IF side story so far.
|Survival Fetish #1 Cover A Regular Antonio Fuso Cover
Another book I will flip thru at my lcs. Not sure what I think about it yet.
| Wasted Space #1 Cover B Variant Hayden Sherman Cover
I hear nothing but crazy about this books. That peaks my interest to grab it.
|Her Infernal Descent #1 Cover B Variant Robert Hack Cover
I'm not interested in this one, but I'll flip thru it.
|Batman Vol 3 #45 Cover B Variant Jim Lee Cover
Bats is great. This one starts a new storyline.
|Batman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II #6 Cover B Variant Kevin Eastman Cover
The end of the run. These are always fun mashups.
- Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 #795 Cover D 3rd Ptg Variant Alex Ross Black & White Cover
- Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 #796 Cover C 3rd Ptg Variant Alex Ross Black & White Cover
- True Believers Venom vs Spider-Man #1 Cover B 2nd Ptg Variant Todd McFarlane Cover – $1
- True Believers Rebirth Of Thanos #1 –$1

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.)
Captain America Vol 8 #700 Cover G Incentive Alex Ross Variant Cover 1:50 – I think it is a solid buy at half ratio. Mostly $35-45.
Domino Vol 3 #1 Cover G Incentive J Scott Campbell Variant Cover 1:50 – it seems like a safe grab right under ratio. – ~$60
Star Wars Thrawn #3 Cover B Incentive Rahzzah Variant Cover 1:25 – if you see it for cheap maybe grab it. – $20-25 not bad.
Ducktales Vol 4 #8 Cover C Incentive Blueprint Character-Focused Variant Cover 1:10 – I’d pay ratio or less to be safe – ~$20
Exiles Vol 5 #1 Cover D Incentive Javier Rodriguez Design Variant Cover – Try to pay close to cover and this is a super long shot. – ~$10
Sonic The Hedgehog Vol 3 #2 Cover D Incentive Jonathan Gray Variant Cover 1:25 – If you see it for cover or really cheap maybe grab it. – $20-25
A little bit of all the flavors this week including a “One.” I love that Ross cover, but I'm curious what Y'all think of the reveal. The others I'm excited about reading Evolution, the new Black Hammer, and Mister Miracle. What are you looking forward to? Did I miss anything? Let me know and as always thanks for reading!
