The Wednesday One 06/27/18
Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 06/27/18
Hide your wallets and sow up your mattress, this week is going to hurt. Get your comfy walking shoes and gas up the car. Eat early and take a pregame dump. There is some meat on the bone this week. Which is the “One?” Oh and there are some reads and what not also.
|Batgirl Vol 5 #24 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover
Middleton is on fire and so is the spec around his covers. I actually like this one the best. This is going to be $10 for a while I think. It already has presales at $10.
|Teen Titans Special #1
1st app and the new team. Grab some clean copies. This one has been hot and will stay hot.
|Multiple Man #1 Cover C Incentive Larry Stroman Variant Cover
I add this because I doubt many shops order anywhere near 50 copies. If you happen to see it for $10-15 maybe grab it. 1 presale for $50 yesterday and only a few listed so far. I think it is a $25 book based on low print.
|Game Of Thrones Clash Of Kings #11 Cover E Incentive Mike Miller Virgin Cover
I don't care for these, but they are limited and some folks collect them. I'd grab it for cover or right over if I stumbled into one.
|Venom Vol 4 #3 Cover B Incentive Jorge Molina Variant Cover
Grab this if you can. 1st app and I think it is a cool one. This book is seeing $60 after the spoilers dropped. This is the “One.”
|Venom Vol 4 #3 Cover A Regular Ryan Stegman Cover
Grab some clean copies of this regular cover also.
|Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #32
1st app of “Princess Fisk” which is Kingpin's daughter. I think this might have some initial heat, but Marvel does so many new lame characters. MGDD has a small print run so worth grabbing a few. Already hitting over $10
|Ms Marvel Vol 4 #31 Cover B Variant Stephanie Hans Cover
Not my favorite cover, but it is HOT! I do think it is overrated, but what do I know. This might have a 1st app. It is a new character. I will try to grab 2 from a few places if I can get to more than 1 LCS wed.
|Hellblazer Vol 2 #23 Cover B Variant Sean Phillips Cover
I'm not loving it, but i dig the style and colors.
|Vampirella Roses For The Dead #1 Cover D Incentive Joseph Michael Linsner Virgin Cover
I'm on and off linsner, but if I find this cheap I'm grabbing it for PC.
|Detective Comics Vol 2 #983 Cover B Variant Mark Brooks Cover
Brooks is having a banner year.
|Flash Vol 5 #49 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover
I know there are a lot of these, but I love them and grab a few of each for slabbing in my PC.
|Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #47 Cover B Variant Tyler Kirkham Cover
Kirkham amazing again. I think he shines with these GL B covers. I think these are slipping under the radar compared to the other B's.
|Wonder Woman Vol 5 #49 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover
Frison's run should have all had these B virginesque covers.
|Infinity Countdown Darkhawk #3
These Darkhawk covers have caught my eye. This one is a standout.
|Charlies Angels #1 Cover E Incentive David Finch & Jimmy Reyes Virgin Cover
If I see it cheap I might grab it.
|Bloodstrike #23 Cover B Variant Rob Liefeld Cover
This is just funny. I like how he is embracing the ridiculousness.
|Sentry Vol 3 #1 Cover B Incentive Pyeong Jun Jeong Variant Cover
I like this cover and am curious about it as a read.
|Kill Or Be Killed #20 Cover B Variant Sean Phillips Virgin Cover
Last issue of what I consider the best read out right now. I'm actually a little sad about this one ending.
|Realm #7 Cover B Variant Baldemar Rivas Cover
This needs to come out on time. Nothing worse than a good book with lots of potential that can't come out regularly.
|Man Of Steel Vol 2 #5
So far not too shabby. I dig. I'm an issue behind.
This is growing on me.
|Pestilence Story Of Satan #2
I like the crazy take on the black plague.
|Old Man Logan Vol 2 #42
OML is solid.
|Modern Fantasy #1
I'm curious what Gudsnuk is working on. I'll flip thru it.
|Black Cloud #10
I like this cover. I'm read up thru 6 I need to catch up. It is interesting.
|Deadpool Assassin #2 Cover A Regular Mark Bagley Cover
DP is fun.
|Hunt For Wolverine Mystery In Madripoor #2 Cover B Variant Chris Bachalo Cover
I like the 1st one. It isn't great though.
|Moon Knight Vol 8 #196
I'm up to date on this book and I like it so far.
|Star Wars Doctor Aphra #21 Cover B Variant Rod Reis Galactic Icon Cover
“Hello there!” – General Kenobi
I like all the Star Wars Marvel books. Good canon.
|Thor Vol 5 #2 Cover A Regular Mike Del Mundo Cover
I'm curious about flaming claw wolverine.
|Michael Turner Legacy One Shot
I like some Turner.

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.)
Tony Stark Iron Man #1 Alex Ross 1:50 trade dress and 1:200 Virgin Variant Cover – I think half ratio is safe and I think they go for a little over that in a week. – 1:50 seems to be half ratio now, for the 1:200, $130 is the most recent sale.
Tony Stark Iron Man #1 Cover X Incentive Adi Granov Variant Cover 1:25 – Strong presales $20-30. Try to get at half of the ratio or less. This should have a large print run. – ~$10 is what they seem to be selling for.
Green Lanterns #49 Cover B Variant Warren Louw Cover – This has a chance to go for 2-3x cover. – This is going for cover again it seems. Hit $10 at high.
Champions (Marvel) Vol 2 #21 – Maybe a long hold. #19 goes for $10 so keep an eye out in the back issues. – Some sales at $10 and no movement.
There is a “One” and man I don't know where to cut. A lot of flips to be made and I think I might try a few stores and go full hunt mode. I like some of the reveals, but others are lackluster. What do Y'all think about the books this week? Did I miss anything? There are so many books this week I assume I did. Are Y'all hunting or relaxing? Let me know what Y'all think! Thanks for reading. I'm going to miss KoBK…
