The Wednesday One 09/19/18
Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 09/19/18
Another week and this one has something for everyone. Hopefully this time I didn't screw the pooch like last week, I def missed a few. Can't win them all so brush off the old and get on to the next. This week is full and has a “One.” Let's throw some pasta against the wall and see what sticks.
|Justice League Vol 4 #8 Cover C Incentive Jim Lee Pencils Only Cover 1:100
I love these pencils covers and this may be the hottest one yet. This seems to be hanging around $90 and I think it sits around that give or take $10. Try to grab under $60 to be safe. I want a slab, but I say that about all of these pencils. The “One.” IMO a future classic.
|Life Of Captain Marvel Vol 2 #3 Cover C Incentive Joe Quesada Virgin Cover 1:100
I don't love it, but I like the hair. Too much empty space on the cover, but it will probably have a low print run. I don't see to many listed or sold, but right over $50 seems to be the going rate. I don't think the demand is there. I think it is a grab for $25 or less to be safe. I think it goes for $40 tomorrow, but it might die.
|Ducktales Vol 4 #12 Cover C Incentive Blueprint Character-Focused Variant Cover 1:10
I still don't like these, but some folks are making sets. These always seem like ~$10 books.
|Mr & Mrs X #3 Cover B Incentive Phil Noto Variant Cover 1:25
A 1st app has this heating up. The Noto cover isn't too shabby either. Few sold for $25 and one for $50 with a bin around $40. I think it goes for $30-35 tomorrow, I like it for $20 or less. I did grab one from midtown for ~$21. Hope to grab another at my lcs.
1st app and it sold out quickly online. I figure it will be hot like the last one and go for ~$10.
|Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 12 The Reckoning #4 Cover A Regular Stephanie Hans Cover
Hans has been having a great year and I'm a sucker for covers with light coming from behind.
|Aquaman Vol 6 #40 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover
Another good Middleton for the PC. Do his other amazing cover make these good covers less special?
|Batman Damned #1 Cover A Regular Lee Bermejo Cover
This is so metal. I might have to grab the Jim Lee cover also. This is the better of the 2 though.
|Batman Vol 3 #55 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover
I don't get tired of all these Mattina DC Bs. I figured I would have by now, but they are so good.
|Justice League Vol 4 #8 Cover B Variant Jim Lee & Scott Williams Cover
If you can't get the pencils like me, we still win with this amazing colors version.
|Teen Titans Vol 6 #22 Cover B Variant Alex Garner Cover
I love this Garner run so far. This white cover might be hard to find clean.
|Robots vs Princesses #2 Cover B Incentive Nicolas Chapuis Virgin Cover
I don't know what this book is, but this cover has a feeling of movement to it that I love.
|Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 Annual #1 Cover B Variant Gabriele Dell Otto Cover
Another Otto for the pile.
|Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 Annual #1 Cover C Incentive Dennis Chan Marvels Spider-Man Video Game Variant Cover
I'm torn on this one. I like the game costume though.
|Captain America Vol 9 Annual #1 Cover B Variant Kaare Andrews Cover
Classic war movie cover looks sweet.
|Life Of Captain Marvel Vol 2 #3 Cover A Regular Julian Totino Tedesco Cover
I don't care for this book as a read, but I dig this cover and think it is better than the Quesada. I probably won't grab it though.
|Return Of Wolverine #1 Cover G Variant Steve McNiven Brown & Tan Costume Cover
I like this costume but will probably grab this book from an overflowing dollar bin. Just way too many covers. I love Wolvie as much as the next guy, but he isn't even back yet and I'm kinda burned out.
|Star Wars Vol 4 #54 Cover B Variant John Tyler Christopher Action Figure Cover
Try not to laugh. I still love these. I still don't understand a lot of these obscure characters though. There are so many others I'd rather see.
|Jeepers Creepers #5 Cover D Incentive Stuart Sayger Virgin Cover
I just dig this. Kinda has a Sienkiewicz feel, but good Sienkiewicz.
|Black Hammer Age Of Doom #5 Cover B Variant Fabio Moon Cover
The BH is so great and this homage cover isn't shabby.
|Injustice 2 #34
One of the more fun DC titles.
|Injustice vs The Masters Of The Universe #3
Not as great as the Thundercats crossover.
|Mister Miracle Vol 4 #11 Cover B Variant Mitch Gerads Cover
The penultimate issue should do some wrapping up. I'm a few issues behind.
I liked the first enough to grab the 2nd.
One of my favorite books out right now. Underrated.
|Seven To Eternity #11 Cover A Regular Jerome Opena & Matt Hollingsworth Cover
This needs to heat back up reading wise.
|Gideon Falls Directors Cut #1
I don't know if I want this. I probably don't.
I hear this is a good read. Maybe I'll grab a trade.
|Thor Vol 5 #5 Cover A Regular Esad Ribic Cover
Been waiting for this since it was teased, I hope it is good.
|Black Badge #2 Cover C Variant Greg Smallwood Cover
Loved the 1st issue and can't wait for this one. I like this cover too.
|Burnouts #1 Cover C Variant Geoffo CBLDF Charity Uncensored Cover
I kinda want to try this book and some of these uncensored covers have been popular.
|Patience Conviction Revenge #1 Cover B Variant Robert Hack Cover
I usually give new Aftershock a try. Sounds crazy and I like crazy.
|Lost City Explorers #4
I'm still reading this for now. I might stop soon.
|Immortal Hulk #6 Cover A Regular Alex Ross Cover
One of the better Marvel books. Plus Ross covers are great.
|Venom First Host #4 Cover A Regular Mark Bagley Cover
I can't keep up with this book coming out every week.
Forgot got this bad boy. Venom and Cates is what Marvel should do more of.

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.)
Star Wars Last Jedi Adaptation #6 Cover B Incentive Mike Mayhew Variant Cover 1:25 – Small print runs have made these hot and I expect this will be selling over ratio. They might be cooling off though as this is the last issue. I think around half ratio is safe. – Recent sales were 4 days ago at $70. Very solid , I didn't give it enough credit.
Weatherman #4 Cover C Incentive Bengal Variant Cover 1:25 – These are getting more rare as the print run inevitably goes down as comics do. But, these don't really move that much, but if you find one for half ratio I'd try to flip it. I didn't like this book at first, but I'm warming up to it more each issue. These are a solid $30 it seems.
Low Road West #1 Cover B Incentive David Lafuente Virgin Variant Cover 1:15 – These seem to be selling around ratio and I think it stays there give or take a few dollars. I think $10 or under flips. This didn't get any love.
RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #26 PUTRI “B” VARIANT – I left this one off the list last week. $8-10. I still don't get it, but it is definitely me that is out of the loop.
Riptide (Red 5 Comics) #2 – This was a read. These stayed warm and seem to be $10
Big week with tons of fun. The is a great “One” and I really hope I can grab one eventually. This week is going to hurt my wallet for sure. What do Y'all think and did I miss anything? Hopefully, this week was better. Thanks for reading and happy Wednesday.
