The Wednesday One 09/18/19


Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 09/18/19

Thin week but a few things too look at and some reads worth the trip to the LCS.


Valkyrie Jane Foster #3 1:25

Stephanie Hans

I like the colors, but it isn't amazing to me. There are a number of Hans collectors and the print run is probably low. Selling $15-30 and mostly around $30. I think it sits around ratio which is solid. Grab for half ratio or less if you dig. Teased death, but that means nothing.

Aero #3 1:25

Pop Mhan

Low print run. I hear “first appearance of Sea Hunter, second Filipina,” but I have no idea. I don't mess with this. Few asking ~$25-30, don't seem to be any sales. If for some odd reason you find one cheap maybe grab it. I don't mess with things I don't know.

Vampirella #3 1:25


Yeah. This is going $25-30, but not sold out everywhere. I'd grab for PC at half ratio.

Star Wars Age Of Resistance Rey #1 1:50

Joe Quesada

I think this will be hard to find. I'm not a big Quesada fan, but this hits. Grab if you see it clean. Selling for ~$80 so far. I don't see how this isn't a ghost. I'm grabbing for ratio proabably more, but I'm a SW fan. I can see this getting over $100, but at least staying where it is at. I'd slab it if I got one. I might have rose colored glasses on this one.

Spider-Man #1 1:50

Dell Otto

A simple, but solid Otto. I'm not chasing it. I'll grab one later for cheap. Spidey #1s have a high print run. Selling for $15-20. I'd grab a clean one for $10-15 for PC.

Absolute Carnage Lethal Protectors #2 1:25 Codex

Mico Sauyan

Some folks are collecting the Codex covers. I like Sauyan covers despite the issues, but this one is just okay. It seems to be $15 shipped to $30. I don't think many care. Pass.

Cool Covers

Flash Forward #1

Inhyuk Lee

I'm grabbing it for a read, but this cover is good.

Aquaman #52

Joshua Middleton

The only reason I ever buy Aquaman is for Middleton covers.

Nightwing #64

Warren Louw

Not enough Louw covers, This one has great action.

Fathom #5

Siya Oum 

Slow week and I like an Oum cover from time to time.





Supergirl #34 

Derrick Chew

I'm not digging it, but I think a few folks are.

Read it

Black Hammer Age Of Doom #12

Jeff Lemire

I like the world of BH.

Absolute Carnage #3 

Donny Cates

Cates books are pulls. AC has been solid. I don't do the tie-ins.

Weatherman #4 

Jody LeHeup


Batman #79

Tom King


Forever Maps #1

Michael Lagace

I like this idea of this book and how it is one of the new Scout Binge titles.


Archie vs Predator II #2

Alex De Campi

I liked the 1st series, just fun.

Once & Future #2

Kieron Gillen

Good first issue. I hope it holds up over the next few issues.


You Are Obsolete #1 1:10

Mathew Klickstein

I'm slightly interested.





House Of X #5

Jonathan Hickman

This should be a read for everyone. Grab the cover you like.



  • Batman #77 2nd Ptg
  • Superman #15 Adam Hughes – For the Hughes collectors.
  • Dark Age #1 2nd Ptg
  • Once Our Land Vol 2 TP – Good story
  • Something Is Killing The Children #1 3rd Ptg – Might grab a few $.
  • True Believers Hulk Joe Fixit #1 – $1
  • True Believers Hulk Professor Hulk #1 – $1
  • True Believers Hulk Returns #1 – $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 okay one week later!!!

(Last week's spec will be quoted like this. What it really did will look like this.)

Comic Title –  Prediction. Reality.


Venom #18 1:25 Patrick Zircher Codex Variant – A hot update and great write up from Jack shows us that something of significance happens, but will it amount to anything? I don't want to spoil it for readers so flip thru it if you aren't reading. Late yesterday selling $30ish with ~30x listings ~$35 shipped. Solid buzz, but who isn't all over venom and abs carnage. Regular cover is in stock everywhere. I think it slips down, but with Cates maybe it comes back. I would grab for half ratio or less and undercut. Selling $15-25 and moving.

Once & Future #1 4th Jae Lee & June Chung –  This cover is great. This is my fav of the O&F covers. I still not a fan of non-1st prints. Selling $10-20 shipped. sounds about rightGoing for ~$10 

Silver Surfer Black #4 1:25 Peach Momoko Cates' writing is fun and exciting. Good art. Only a few sold $20-25. Bins for $15. Grab under $10 for PC. I don't think it flips unless something significant happens. $20-25 is really good

King Thor #1 1:25 Gerardo Zaffino – Zaffino covers are my jam. Selling $15-25. I like for $10 for PC, but it will probably grab a $20 if you don't like it.  From what I hear this one might wake up another book. Flip thru a regular. Doing $15-20

Powers Of X #4 Jorge MolinaEveryone is reading this and it is amazing, thx Hickman. I can't wait. Molina sets selling $30-35 is nothing to sneeze at. $30 sets


Wrap Up

A Slow week is nice to catch up. Let me know if I missed anything. Thanks for reading and happy Wednesday!
