The Wednesday One 12/12/18
Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 12/12/18
This week is on the slower side, but it seems to have some goodies. Let's jump in and take a look.
|Defenders Doctor Strange #1 Cover C Incentive Christian Ward Variant Cover 1:25
I like ward covers as they are generally trippy. I don't think this one will flip though. Presales are cheap at $10. Grab it only if for PC and under $10.
|Defenders Silver Surfer #1 Cover C Incentive Skan Variant Cover 1:25
This cover is awesome and def the “One.” I really hope to get this one for my PC. Skan nailed it. Presales $50-70 I think it hangs in at $45-50. I think ratio is safe in case it does flood.
|Mega Ghost #1 Cover B Variant Eric Powell Limited Cover
This Powell cover rocks and it seems to be sold out online. Hard to find any listings. If you see it for cover or right over it maybe worth a shot.
|Punchline #2 Cover B Variant Soaring Cover
I'm not a big fan of these, but they seem to flip. Presales $20-40 so far. If you find it under $10 maybe take a chance and flip it quick. I really don't care for this recent AP pumping, but that also means I'm missing a flip. I should be more cold about spec and flips, but I'm not and it is to my detriment.
|Detective Comics Vol 2 #994 Cover B Variant Mark Brooks Cover
I love this Brooks. Pool of blood reflections are money. Rumored new villain and counting down to issue 1k.
|Suicide Squad Vol 4 #49 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover
Another Mattina for the PC.
|Wonder Woman Vol 5 #60 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover
Middle of the road for Jenny, still a must grab for me.
|Batman Damned #2 Cover A Lee Bermejo Cover
This cover is fire. It will have a huge run so don't expect and heat like issue #1. The B cover isn't shabby either.
|Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 #11 Cover B Variant Gabriele Dell Otto Fantastic Four Villains Cover
A solid Otto, he needs to do more cover price variants.
|Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 #11 Cover D Incentive Into The Spider-Verse Animation Variant Cover 1:10
My fav of the set. They all have the same background and I'm sure some folks will collect the set.
|Black Order #2 Cover B Variant John Tyler Christopher Cover
I liked the JTC for #1 and this one is even better. I might not grab it if it wasn't a read.
|Fantastic Four Wedding Special #1 Cover D Variant Stanley Artgerm Lau Cover
I really dig this Artgerm cover. I don't think it is getting enough love. I think I might wait for the $1 bin though as I just don't care for this as a read.
|X-Men Red #11
I might grab it as part of the set. I like it, but don't love it.
|Star Wars Age Of Republic Darth Maul #1 Cover E Incentive Movie Variant Cover
This is the best of the covers which doesn't say much about the other covers. At least this one is prime for a sweet Ray Park sig. Also I really don't like the trade dress for these AoR runs.
|Black Hammer Cthu-Louise Cover B Variant Jill Thompson Cover
BH world is my Jam, but so many spin offs.
|Quantum Age From The World Of Black Hammer #5 Cover B Variant Tula Lotay Cover
BH and a good cover.
|Batman Who Laughs #1 Cover A Regular Jock Cover
I hope this is good. I think it will be. Rumored 1st app of the “Grim Knight.” This book should have a pretty large run though.
|Flash Vol 5 #60 Cover B Variant Derrick Chew Cover
Solid read and on the pull list. Chew has my attention.
|Cemetery Beach #4 Cover B Variant Jason Howard Impact Cover
Great homage and good read so far.
|Magic Order #5 Cover C Variant Abigail Larson Cover
I like this more than I like to say.
|Murder Falcon #3 Cover B Variant Daniel Warren Johnson & Mike Spicer Heavy Metal Cover
MF is badass and I dig it.
|Outer Darkness #2
The 1st issue was a little busy. They really jumped into it quick. I'm thinking I'll grab #2.
|Spawn Kills Everyone Too #1 Cover B Variant Todd McFarlane Bloody Cover
The 1st spawn kills was fun and even caught some heat.
|Animosity Evolution #9
I still love the Animosity world. I hope the option gets picked up.
|Fearscape #3 Cover A Regular Andrea Mutti Cover
This book is wordy, but good.
|Bitter Root #2 Cover B Variant Bill Sienkiewicz Cover
Issue one had great buzz and coupled with a good Bill cover I'm grabbing #2.
“Laura comes face-to-face with the mysterious X-Assassin,” Maybe a 1st app, but villains are a dime a dozen. I like Witter covers, but this current run hasn't been great as a read, but I still have it on my pull. I'm probably going to drop it. The variant cover seems to be getting warm as it is sold out online in many places.
- True Believers Fantastic Four Dragon Man #1
- True Believers Fantastic Four Molecule Man #1
- True Believers Fantastic Four Super-Skrull #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.)
Winter Soldier Vol 2 #1 Cover B Incentive Bill Sienkiewicz Variant Cover 1:25 – Great cover and going for around ratio. I think it sits $15-20 after it floods. I think it will be somewhat available. $15-20 is what was expected.
Road Of The Dead Highway To Hell #2 Cover C Incentive Santiperez Pencil Art Cover 1:10 – This books seems to still be warm-hot so it might have a chance. Only one sold a week ago. It is a pass for me, but if you find it for cover maybe give it a try. Was doing ~$20, but few sales and most recent was $12
Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #38 – “Meet the Dream Dimension's newest resident!” hints at a new character. I'll grab one for long hold. If you don't grab one file it in the back of your mind for $1 bin grabs later. Still avail for cover as expected.
Uncanny X-Men Vol 5 #4 Cover E Incentive Mark Brooks Hidden Gem Variant Cover 1:100 – I really like this cover for PC. Her feet are a lil weird but I like it. I know it is an old pic, but it does it for me. I don't think this gets long term love (at least I hope it doesn't so I can grab one later because I doubt my lcs gets one), but I think it will always be a one for Brooks collectors to have. $150-250 recently. Grab at ratio or less to be safe. No 1st app or anything significant that I know of. Good enough to be the “One” $200-230 is really good. It seems to be holding up.
Defenders Immortal Hulk #1 Cover D Incentive Adi Granov Variant Cover 1:50 – One of the better Granovs of recent. Trending around $75-80 and I think it drops a little but comes back. $60-80 for the week is my guess. Ratio or under seems to be a good grab. Was doing well at $50-70, but most recently it seems to have cooled to $35-45.
Uncanny X-Men Vol 5 #4 Cover D Incentive In-Hyuk Lee Variant Cover 1:25 – This seems to be dying. Presales were doing well but recently $10 with several bins available for around $10 also. It is a good not great cover. $8 means no love.
X-Men The Exterminated #1 Cover C Incentive Kaare Andrews Variant Cover 1:25 – I like this cover (skulls rock) and think if you find it for under $10 it might be one to grab. “Plus, celebrate the life of Nathan Summers with a story from his past by Chris Claremont!” is the other reason why I want one for PC. Recently $10-12 is about what was expected.
Little slower this week, but still fun for everyone. There is a definite “One” as that Skan is a killer cover. I really hope it slows down a little bit as we get closer to Christmas as I need to catch up on so many reads. Let me know if I missed anything and thanks for reading!
