The Wednesday One 11/21/18
Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 11/21/18
This is a good solid week all the way around. I think it can be done light or heavy depending on your taste. I'll hopefully end up somewhere in the light to medium, but I always say that and it usually never works out. Let's dive it and see what is in store at the store… right.
|Middlewest #1 Cover C Incentive Skottie Young Variant Cover 1:20
This book has a good cover and it is getting hot. Trending $40-50 is a home run. If you can get around ratio it should be easy money even if there is undercutting.
|Marvel Knights 20th #2 Cover C Incentive Jae Lee Variant Cover 1:25
I like this cover but it wont do anything. It is a better cover than the 1:50 which isn't doing great either ~$35. So far ~$15 for this 1:25 means no love. If you like it and find it for $10 or less grab a PC copy. If you like that Johnson 1:50 I think $20 or less. I don't anyone cares about either.
|Shuri #2 Cover B Incentive Movie Variant Cover 1:10
This is a long hold imo. I think This book gets hot for the next BP movie. Maybe even before that from the next Avengers movie. Great cover to get a sig. This cover should be easy enough to get for a little over cover.
|Solo A Star Wars Story Adaptation #2 Cover B Incentive Carlos Pacheco Variant Cover 1:25
Edit. I was way wrong. This isn't her 1st app. It was the Becket 1 shot. page 31-32
-1st app of Enfys Nest. I doubt many care about that, but even then these ratio variants aren't as easy to find like they used to be and many have been getting hot. I hate trying to search ebay as all it pulls up is the actual movie. I think it goes for over ratio and $20 or less is a grab if clean.-
|Spider-Geddon #4 Cover D Incentive Joe Chiodo Variant Cover 1:50
I like this cover for some reason. The eyes are a lil off though, but I want one. I don't think most others will like it. I can't find any recent sales all bins are ~$30+ but I think it doesn't do anything. I think if you want one $20 or less. Better if $15. If not wait and grab one in a few weeks.
|Spider-Man Enter The Spider-Verse #1 Cover C Incentive Matt Waite Variant Cover 1:25
I love this cover. 8-bit turn based rpg style is my jam. Already heating up and I hope to grab one. The 1:10 ratio seems to be warm also and is a good homage. This seems to be going for over ratio at ~$30. I want one. I think around half ratio is safe as it might flood and undercut to $20-25.
Cates is hot and I expect this cover to stay around or right over ratio. Rumor 1st app of Dark Carnage could def help keep this one up despite it being the same as cover A. I doubt I can get one and will stick with a regular cover for reading and PC. So far sales $100-140. I think $75 or less is a good flip. Cates is hot.
|Batman Vol 3 #59 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover
Another Mattina for the collection. I really appreciate DC doing these B covers. They easily could have made these ratios and harder for some folks to get.
|Harley Quinn Vol 3 #54 Cover B Variant Frank Cho Cover
Cho's Lines are fantastic. I think amazing covers like this make me look negatively at his normal Harley covers.
|Justice League Dark Vol 2 #5 Cover B Variant Clayton Crain Cover
I'm on the fence with this cover. I think most will like it.
|Justice League Vol 4 #12 Cover B Variant Lucio Parrillo Aquaman Movie Cover
Parrillo's covers always seem blurry to me. He is definitely developing a following and this is a good cover. I hope the movie is good.
|Teen Titans Vol 6 #24 Cover B Variant Alex Garner Cover
I'm digging this Garner run. Def a PC grab. I think these might get love long term.
|Mars Attacks Vol 4 #2 Cover H Incentive Robert Hack Virgin Cover
I like this idea of this cover. I feel like it kinda has a pre code horror feel to it. It needs to be a little higher quality though.
|Immortal Hulk #9 Cover A Regular Alex Ross Cover
Ross is slaying these IH covers. So far a solid read too.
|Spider-Geddon #4 Cover B Variant In-Hyuk Lee Connecting Cover
The run is amazing. I think best connecting set of the year.
|Pestilence Story Of Satan #5
I think this is a Bradshaw cover. It is a great cover and the Pest books are good reads. Skulls ftw.
|Conspiracy (Zenescope) #1 The Illuminati Cover B Marc Rosete
Some folks are all over this. I don't get it, but it might flip.
|Black Hammer Age Of Doom #7 Cover B Variant Christian Ward Cover
BH is so good.
|Go-Bots #1 Cover A Regular Tom Scioli Cover
I'll give it a shot.
I'm still talking this one up. great read.
|Star Wars Vol 4 #57 Cover B Variant John Tyler Christopher Action Figure Cover
The SW books are some of the best Marvel books consistently.
|Weapon X Vol 3 #26
I keep saying I'm going to drop this and I haven't yet. good cover.
|Hot Lunch Special #4
This book is sooo good. Get on it!
Black Badge is great imo. I recommend giving it a shot.
- Web Of Venom Carnage Born #1 Midtown Exclusive Bill Sienkiewicz Variant Cover – I usually dont dig store variants, but this cover is amazing.
- Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1 Cover F Incentive Doug Braithwaite Glass Variant Cover – Glass cover, that is crazy on several levels. If this is your bag and you find a deal maybe grab it.
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.)
Avengers Vol 7 #10 Cover H Incentive Alex Ross Variant Cover 1:50 – Ross is boss, but will this cover get the love it deserves? Sales seem to be $50-60 which is promising, but his covers don't seem to hold on though. I think $30 or under is safe. I hope I can get one for my PC as I love this cover. Also supposed 1st app of a new red widow or something. Hanging out around $55 is awesome for Ross. He does so many high print run books it seems they often fall off. I love this cover.
Weatherman #6 Cover D Incentive Jerome Opena Variant Cover 1:25 – Sad this is going on a break till next year. I can't find any sales yet. These are getting harder and harder to find and most seem to go for ratio or right over. This is the last issue till next year and that causes books to cool. I'm disappointed we have to wait. I was really getting into this title. I think half ratio is a safe pickup. Dang, killing it at $50-60!
Black Order #1 Cover C Incentive In-Hyuk Lee Variant Cover 1:50 – Beautiful cover and sold out quickly. Lee is starting to develop a following and I was expecting this book to be hot and most are $70-120 but then I see a $322 and I just smh. Don't get me wrong I want one and hope to get one, but I think that is a bit much. I think This is a good grab $60 or under as it seems hot enough to sustain a few days over that. I'd feel better under $50 really though. Unless there is a 1st app I haven't heard of, bonkers pricing doesn't make sense. Even if there is a new character it would be a villain which aren't great bets. It is a good to great cover, but it isn't top 10 of the year by any means. Regardless this is the “One.” $140-160, this one is hanging in there. I thought it would die hard. I like this cover and am happy to have one. I think I'm going to slab mine for pc though. I probably should have sold it though.
Cosmic Ghost Rider #5 Cover E Incentive J Scott Campbell Variant Cover 1:50 – I'm not a fan of this cover being used over again. The GITD from SDCC was enough and seems to be selling for under $50. I don't expect this one to do well, but if you like it I think it is a PC book. I think half ratio, probably less than that if you want it seems safe. $25-35 is about right imo.
Fantastic Four Vol 6 #3 Cover E Incentive Moebius Variant Cover 1:50 – I'm really digging this recent Moebius run. I really hope to grab this one. I don't expect it to do well though. Bins as low as $15, but I think this one may get love long term. If you see it for that cheap, $15 or less, and you like it I think it is worth the dice roll. Scarce but no one cares. I still like it. $10 was the most recent sale I could find. I think that is stash it away and wait price. I'm biased though.
Vault Of Spiders #2 Cover B Incentive Marcos Martin Variant Cover 1:25 – Seems like there is always a new spider character in everyone of these. Doing well so far at $20 to ratio, but I think play it safe at half ratio or less. In the $15 or right under range. meh.
Unstoppable Wasp Vol 2 #2 Cover B Incentive Luciano Vecchio Variant Cover 1:25 – I don't care about this one at all, but I know people like the rare covers. One sold for a bo of $37 and one listed at $80. I'm always shy and think $20 or less and dump it quick. I still think half ratio is much more comfortable though. This cover isn't great so unless there is a new character it is only hot from ghost status which I don't care for. Only 2 sold, last one was an auction for $31 a few days ago. Many listed for $45+.
Domino Vol 3 #8 – Gang Hyuk Lim is on a roll. The cover #7 was surprisingly good and it looks like he is doing a few more covers for this run. I really don't like this book as a read though. Going for double cover. Not bad.
Medium. I don't love anything, but there are a lot of good ones to grab. I don't love anything to call it the “One” but there are some winners. Let me know if I missed anything and as always thanks for reading.
