The Wednesday One 7/11/18
Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 7/11/18
This week seems kinda light. I'm not looking to hunt anyway after the last 2 weeks, but if I see a deal I'll grab it. Few good covers and a hand full of reads. Let's see if we can make this week not hurt the pocketbook like the last 2.
|She Could Fly #1
Interesting premise, I'll flip thru it at my lcs and see if it catches my eye.
|Superman Vol 6 #1 Cover C Variant David Mack Cover
I like the Mack better than the Hughes. Mack doesn't get enough love.
|Titans Vol 3 #23 Cover B Variant Stjepan Sejic Cover
Rumors of the 1st full Crush, but many sources say no. I might grab anyway.
|Relay #1 Cover B Variant Christian Ward Cover
This seems to be a collective work of a lot of people.
|Morte One Shot
Sounds interesting, but I doubt it will be on many shelves.
1st one caught heat. So far a good start for this mini. It is a good read and I look forward to #2.
|Wasted Space #3 Cover A Regular Marguerite Sauvage Cover
Good read, rough art.
|Voltron Legendary Defender Vol 3 #1 Cover A Regular Mariko Yamashin Cover
I'm one of the few that likes Voltron. The Netflix show is good. I really hope they make that live action movie they talked about. I still think Voltron #1 from the 80s is a good spec. But, again I'm probably one of the few.
|Dead Hand #4
edit. I had thought it was a reprint, but I think I was wrong on that. I'm not sure why I thought that.
edit 2: I was right! I'm not going totally crazy! Good news everyone!
This was a surprise drop release. Looks interesting.
I hear good things about it, but I'm not sure about the premise.
|Isola #4 Cover B Variant Karl Kerschl & Msassyk Cover
So far really good. I hope this title stays consistent.
|Oblivion Song By Kirkman & De Felici #5
So far so good.
edit. thought it was 1-4 for the advanced trade. it was 1-6.
|Outpost Zero #1
Sounds okay, I'll flip thru it.
|Champions (Marvel) Vol 2 #22
Edit: totally forgot this. TAH gets a new name and Riri gets new armor. Maybe grab a clean copy. Thx Foxom for the reminder.
|Old Man Logan Vol 2 #43
Edit: also forgot this one. This is usually a read as it is on my pull. Another one Foxom reminded me about and he says “1st app of Shadow Tracer” which I hadn't heard at all so def thx for the tip.
- True Believers Fantastic Four vs Doctor Doom #1
- True Believers Fantastic Four Marvel Two-In-One #1
- True Believers Fantastic Four Hulk vs Thing #1
- True Believers Fantastic Four Galactus Hungers #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.)
Nightwing Vol 4 #46 Cover B Variant Ben Oliver Cover – Already $10 the night before. I think it stays $10 forever. – Sitting around $10. I think this cover sees slow long-term gains, nothing crazy though.
Captain America Vol 9 #1 Cover N Incentive Alex Ross Wraparound Virgin Cover 1:100 – Get it cheap if you want it. $25 cheap. Ross covers usually die out quick even when they have a little heat. – Selling for $50 which is great, maybe more people liked it than I expected.
Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 Cover C Incentive Stephanie Hans Variant Cover 1:25 – Presales are $20 and I think it drops to $15. If I see it for $10 or less I’ll grab one for my PC. – $10-15 recent sales
Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 Cover D Trade Dress and Cover E Mark Brooks Virgin Cover 1:100 – I’m just grabbing a regular cover because of Cates. If I see this for $25 or less I’d grab it. I was way off on this one. Selling for $70 recently. That is really good.
Death Of The Inhumans #1 Cover E Incentive Greg Hildebrandt Variant Cover 1:25 – If you see it cheap like $12 or less to be safe maybe grab it as it is a 1st app, but there are so may 1st apps that skipping it isn’t a bad idea either. – This is $20-30 recently. Not bad actually.
Death Of The Inhumans #1 Cover D Incentive Kaare Andrews Design Variant Cover 1:10 – Presales seem to be hovering around $15 which is good for a 1:10. I’m grabbing it for $10 or less, but better if $8 or less. 1:10 is an easy qualifier so most shops I think get 1 copy. – This was winner selling for ~$20 and I think Vox is cool.
Star Wars Vol 4 #50 Cover F Incentive Terry Dodson Variant Cover 1:50 – If you see it cheap grab it. This is a good Dodson imo. $30 for 2 presales and one for $20 before that. I think $15 or under is safe. But if it is for PC I’d pay a little more for a clean copy. – Selling for $30 which is actually pretty good for a SW variant.
Immortal Hulk #2 Cover B Incentive Gerardo Zaffino Variant Cover 1:25 – $20 presales. I think it has a chance if it is a good 1st app. I’d grab for half ratio and take a chance. The cover is worth it imo. – 2x sold for $20 today, then one for $30. Maybe this has some slow heat?
Star Wars Last Jedi Adaptation #4 Cover B Incentive Rod Reis Variant Cover 1:25 – Probably the 1st cover of Holdo, but who actually cares about Holdo. Only 2 international sales so far. If you see it for half ratio I think it is worth taking a chance on just for rarity. The last one sold a few days ago for $40, there is one auction at $40+ with a few other auctions behind it. I'm curious where they end up.
Another week and no “one” which is fine. Not every week can be the 4th of July. Speaking of which hope everyone had a great 4th last week. I'm happy to just grab a stack of mostly reads. I think sometimes it is easy for me to forget the good reads with so many good covers and flips the last 2 weeks. What are Y'all grabbing this week? Did I miss anything? Let me know and thanks for reading!
