Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 02/13/19

Pretty solid week. Some goodness for all. Let's check it out.

Flipdipskys

Avengers No Road Home #1 Cover E Incentive Mark Brooks Variant Cover 1:25 Brooks

Going for $10-12 they should be really plentiful. I'll grab a PC if I find it under $10.

 

Avengers No Road Home #1 Cover F Incentive Adam Hughes Variant Cover 1:50

`Not my favorite Hughes cover. It is good not great. Dark cover might make it hard to find clean, but print run will be solid. Selling for about ratio. I'd grab for half ratio as I think it drops to $35-45. Which is still solid. If I get one it will probably go into my PC though.

Dead Man Logan #4 Cover B Incentive Gerardo Zaffino Variant Cover 1:25

From $17-75 but mostly $50. I have been grabbing Zaffino covers lately and wish I could grab this one for under ratio for PC. I think there will be a good amount listed because it has been hot for days, but it will stay $40-50 which is great. There is a good chance I'm low on this one though as auctions with 12hrs left are nearing $70. Guessing 35k/25=1400 ballpark. The black cover might make clean ones a challenge.

Marvel Tales Black Widow #1 Cover B Incentive Jen Bartel Virgin Cover 1:50

3 listed and I can't find any sales. $8 cover this is probably scarce. It is a really good cover, but I don't think it can hang. I think it ends up around ratio and not much action.

Savage Sword Of Conan #1 Cover E Incentive Rahzzah Color Variant Cover 1:25

It seems like no one cares about this cover. I really like it. Already a flood and cheap. I can't find any sold recently. last was 2-3 days ago. Grab for under $10 for PC and even then

Star Wars Han Solo Imperial Cadet #4 Cover B Incentive Caspar Wijngaard Variant Cover 1:25

I have no idea on these. Last was a few days ago for $30. I only see 3 sold and 1 current auction. Little supply but little demand I think. I'd take a chance for half ratio or less.

Exciting Comics Vol 2 #1 Cover E Variant Speedway Cover

I don't get it. This is a $20 book apparently and it is selling for that with a few listed for more. Something about different covers have different retail price. Pass for me.

 

Captain Marvel Vol 9 #2 Cover D Incentive Chris Bachalo Variant Cover 1:50

I almost forgot about this cover. One sold for $65 and bin is $60. I don't see it. Cover is okay.  If I find it under $20 I'll try to flip it. I think it goes down under ratio. But, I don't care

Cool Covers

Batman Who Laughs #3 Cover B Variant Riccardo Federici Cover

Great cover and seems to be attainable but limited. This is a really sweet B cover for PC.

Wonder Woman Vol 5 #64 Cover B Variant Stanley Artgerm Lau Cover

I really don't care for landscape format covers. It is good to mix it up now and then. There aren't that many of them. Another really good Germ PC grab.

Blackbird #5 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover

It doesn't do much for me, but I'm a fan

Avengers No Road Home #1 Cover D Variant Mark Brooks Hidden Gem Cover

Great Brooks cover. I can't decide if I like this or the 1:25 better. Might be a little hard to find.

Savage Sword Of Conan #1 Cover A Regular Alex Ross Cover

I didn't want to grab a conan #1. But this Ross cover is really good, I love the skeletons.

Marvels Annotated #1 Cover A Regular Alex Ross Cover

Everyone should have the 90s run as they are often in $1 bins. I don't think I can do $8 for a reprint with extras even as it is issues 0 and 1. Ross is so good. When I was a kid this was crazy amazing.

Spawn Kills Everyone Too #3 Cover A Regular Todd McFarlane Color Cover

Fun homage. I might grab one.

Gideon Falls #11 Cover B Variant Mico Suayan Cover

Mico Suayan covers should only be b/w. Really amazing work somehow doesn't color well. I still need to get on GF.

Read it

Detective Comics Vol 2 #998 Cover B Variant Gary Frank Cover

Counting down.

Flash Vol 5 #64 Cover B Variant Tom Raney Cover

I'm on board for the 4 forces at war.

Criminal Vol 2 #2

So good. They are a great team. There is a 2nd print of the 1st issue if you missed it.

Murder Falcon #5 Cover B Variant Lorenzo De Felici Heavy Metal Cover

This book is better than it should be. Everyone should be grabbing this.

Zinnober #7

Last issue. Good read, the whole run has been very htf.

Devils #1

I donno, I hear some folks talking about it and it has an interesting premise, but I'm kinda tired of AP talk. Andy convinced me, but I probably won't be able to find one anyway. Going for $10 bin.

 

 

 

God Of Bad Men #1 Cover B Variant David Bircham Cover

I hear people talking about this one also. Interesting premise and I think a 4 issue run might be fun to pick up. $10 shipped right now so call it right over cover.

Notes

  • True Believers Captain Marvel vs Ronan #1 – $1
  • True Believers Captain Mar-Vell #1 – $1
  • Immortal Hulk #2 Cover D 3rd Ptg Variant Joe Bennett Cover – usually not a fan of non 1st prints, but IH is hot. I'll probably skip it, going for cover so far on ebay, but seems to be mostly sold out online.
  • Die #2 Cover C 2nd Ptg Variant Stephanie Hans Cover – Die is really good so far + Hans fans.

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.)

Red Sonja Vol 8 #1 Cover N Incentive Joe Jusko Painted Sneak Peek Variant Cover 1:75 – This one might have a chance to do alright. I don't think anything amazing though. It is a really good not great Jusko, but it is a high ratio for Dynamite. Looks like 5 presales and none were on Tues. Most recently $80. I don't see many selling but only 2 list bins right now also. I'd only grab for PC unless you can score it cheap. I'm shy on this one well under half ratio. I kinda wish it wasn't as zoomed in. The card might be too much background thoughOnly 1 sold since last week, but it went for $100. $70obo though. 

Uncanny X-Men Vol 5 #11 Cover I Incentive Scott Williams Variant Cover 1:50 – I really like this cover. It reminds me of classic 90s x-men. That wolvie is on point. I don't see it going up to ratio, but I think it hangs around over half ratio, $35-45 is my guess. There are a number listed and only one sold today for $25. I think this is more a PC or pass book as I think you would have to grab $15 or less to safe flip which is a tall order. $30 is really solid. I still want one. 

Avengers Vol 7 #14 Cover C Incentive Matteo Scalera Wraparound Variant Cover 1:25 – I like it for the cover. It isn't amazing, but it would be a good pc grab. It has a great style. $20 the last few days. 

Magical Beatdown #1- This is getting some buzz, but will it last? A few presales of $14-16 shows promise. It has a $6 cover so maybe it is under-ordered more than most small indies. The whole book is only in the colors pink and blue. Might be interesting, but I think the market floods and it dies off. Grab for cover and sell quick if you want to try it, seems to have good movement. I might grab it as a reader. $10 book, but don't forget $6 cover.  

 

Wrap Up

 

I would have guessed there would have been a few valentines day themed covers this week. A good week over all and there are some solid books to grab. Let me know if I missed anything and thanks for reading.

    While I ageee with you regarding the annotated Marvels, the Ross virgin cover is too good to pass up. There is a third cover by Noto that is catchy as well.

    I did discover that issue 3 of Marvels has a Galactus / Silver Surfer cover by Dell Otto. Not sure of print runs on these, imagine they are lower than normal due to cover price, something to keep an eye on the next two months.

      Good call. I hope it is good.

      Good luck finding high grade copies since this book is so damn thick. Every copy of the three covers I’ve seen has some form of denting to the spine with tiny tears at the top and/or bottom corners. Most copies also suffer from what seems to be binding indentations along the tops of the pages so check thoroughly before you buy.

    I’m glad you speak of the Murder Falcon goodness. Goooooooodness…

    Anytime I see 1 : X, I just skip past it. I hate incentives regardless of how nice the cover is.

    If you like Suyan he did some of his best and most overlooked work with Valiant over the past few years.

    I love when Ross adds a touch of green to his stuff, e.g. his Conan cover.

    I think I’m at a point with Artgerm where all his covers look the same, and they’re starting to look like those generic character prints you see everywhere in artist alley at cons.

    The Zaffino Dead Man Logan is FANTASTIC!!! I was lucky enough to pick one up at a good price and I’m ecstatic!!! I passed on the Rahzzah Conan though. Just not my cup of tea. Couldn’t find the Hughes cover for Avengers though. Ugh. Awesome article as always! Thanks!

  • Cruzzer2

    Not sure what is up with that Captain Marvel 2 1:50.

    I don’t get it.

    $60-$100 all over ebay and people are buying.

    Nice to see Murder Falcon get a mention. It’s been a lot of fun that book. Also Gideon Falls is great.
