The Wednesday One 12/19/18
Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 12/19/18
Kind of a big week which is rough before Christmas. Let's check it out.
|Darth Vader Vol 2 #25 Cover C Incentive Gabriele Dell Otto Variant Cover 1:25
This current run of Vader has been really good. He just recently survived lava and killed Momin. I can't wait to see what is in the portal! This should be relatively easy to find imo, but presales are high at double ratio! I think that drops to ratio at least especially when the online orders arrive. It is a good cover, but isn't amazing and no 1st app that I know of is why I think it drops. “One”
|Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (BOOM Studios) #34 Cover D Incentive Linda Lithen Virgin Variant Cover 1:25
Rumored new ranger is what I hear. I don't know much about MMPR, but i do hear it is well written. I can't find any sold recently and it appears to be very ghostly. I think ratio or less is safe, but again I have no idea about mmpr.
|Killmonger #2 Cover B Incentive Jeff Dekal Variant Cover 1:25
I dont get it, but most people really like this cover. Going for $30-40 today, but I think it drops to raito. I think it is a grab at half ratio unless you love it. I'm probably going too low though.
|Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 #12 Cover B Variant Adi Granov Fantastic Four Villains Cover
I really like this Granov and it seems to be going for right over cover to double cover so far. I think if it gets any heat it wont be for long. PC grab for me.
Last one of the set. The other 2 did warm up and I might sell my set, but I doubt it. If you get it to flip do it quick before it is forgotten, but I wouldn't try it.
|Thor Vol 5 #8 Cover D Variant Kaare Andrews Cover
Sold out online and might be hard to come by. Seems to be trending over cover. Angela with a big sword is always a win. Seems to be trending over cover and seems to be ghostly.
|Star Wars Adventures #16 Cover C Incentive Nicoletta Baldari Variant Cover 1:10
Rumored 1st app of some of the characters from the new show. The show is terrible. I am a big Rebels and Clone Wars fan, but the new show was so bad I couldn't make it thru the 1st episode. No one cares about the 1st apps of the Rebels characters so I doubt this ever heats up. That being said if you see it for cover maybe grab it.
|Grumble #2 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Limited Cover
This cover is great. Frison is hot and this book will be hard to find. Seems to be going for $30 and it might hang around $25-30 as there are a lot of Frison fans these days.
|Solo A Star Wars Story Adaptation #3 Cover B Incentive Marco Checchetto Variant Cover 1:25
Really great cover and these are so hard to find it seems. It is so hard to search for these on Ebay. I think half ratio is safe as I think it goes for ratio.
|Spider-Geddon #5 Cover D Incentive Vanessa Del Rey Variant Cover 1:50
I don't know why, but I really like this cover. I don't expect it to do much, but it might be a lil hard to find. Recent sales are $40, but I think it drops $25-30. I think $20 or under is safe. I kinda want one for PC though.
|Batman Vol 3 #61 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover
This cover is awesome. Mattina killing it. I might grab a few.
|Catwoman Vol 5 #6 Cover B Variant Stanley Artgerm Lau Cover
I'm kind of surprised there aren't more Christmas style covers like this book this week. Great cover for PC.
|Freedom Fighters Vol 3 #1 Cover B Variant Ben Oliver Cover
This cover is killer and it might even get warm. Great cover for ye old PC.
|Teen Titans Vol 6 #25 Cover B Variant Alex Garner Cover
Origin of crush and a sweet cover. I really like this Garner run.
|Spawn #292 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Virgin Cover
I might grab the set. The B/W is really good too. Mattina just slays it with Spawn.
|Tank Girl Vol 3 #1 Action Alley Cover C Variant Greg Staples Cover
I'm not big on this cover, but it def has the eye of others.
|Darth Vader Vol 2 #25 Cover A Regular Elia Bonetti & Giuseppe Camuncoli Cover
I actually like this cover better than the Otto, but there will be tons so better from the $1 bin later if you grab the variant. Vader walking on lava = epic. Great read.
|Spider-Geddon #5 Cover B Variant In-Hyuk Lee Connecting Cover
I love this set. Grabbing a few of them every week.
Rumored first appearance of Atlas Bear. These covers have been great, but I'm not a fan of the writing.
Image has too many #1s. I am looking forward to this one though.
|Edgar Allan Poes Snifter Of Terror #3
Underrated. Good read and cool covers.
|Love Town #1
I hope I find one of these to check out. Cool premise from the Yuan brothers.
|Feast Or Famine #1
Some Alterna value. $1.50 is an easy grab.
|Burnouts #4 Cover D Variant Dennis Culver Hero Initiative Cover
This book is a fun read and so is this cover.
|Black Badge #5
Love this book more and more.

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.)
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. Lol recent sale of $5 says no one likes this one.
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. Give or take $30 so down a little bit. I think it gets love term love though.
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. Was $20-25 but the last sale 3 days ago was $6 but that might be an outlier.
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. $35-40 it seems. I still don't like it.
X-23 Vol 3 #7 Cover A Regular Ashley Witter Cover – “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. The variant and even the regular cover did catch some heat. $30-45 today for the variant is wow. I just don't get it. Double cover for the regular. I need to list my variant for that price dang.
Big week and the Otto Vader is the “One.” Trending well and should have good movement as well as not being too hard to find. I may have to put some of the books from this week under the tree as my stack might be so big… I hope next week lets me recover. Merry Christmas Y'all. I hope you have a good day. Let me know if I missed anything, I bet I did, and thanks for reading!
