The Wednesday One 10/02/19


Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 10/02/19

Hello there! I'm short on time and cool covers, but have a good number of reads.



Vampire State Building #1

Inhyuk Lee Cover

The various cover seem to be wanting double cover. Not bad, not great. TWD hype, but will it be good?

Dead End Kids #3

Frank Gogol

Grabbing $15 is solid esp for a #3, but I don't think it holds. If you want to try to flip sell it quick imo.

Absolute Carnage Immortal Hulk #1 1:25

Keown Codex Variant

Going for double ratio is amazing for a 1:25. There should be a solid number of these as 1:25 shouldn't be too hard to qualify for, but good cover, codex collectors, and AC is hot. I don't see it holding at double but I don't think it drops a lot. I think they go $35-40 tomorrow as they flood which is super solid. This is the “One.”

Absolute Carnage Immortal Hulk #1 1:100 virgin

Inhyuk Lee

Not many listed or sold, but it seems to be going for around ratio. I like it, but I think it might be hard to find. I think it holds around ratio. I'd grab it for half in case they aren't moving, but I would probably slab for PC. The 1:50 trade dress version seems to be getting half ratio so maybe there isn't much demand.





Spider-Verse #1 1:25

Patrick Brown Variant

Rumored 1st app, but there are a lot of spiderverse toons already. Few sold $15-20. I don't expect much out of it, but might be one to grab if cheap.

Cool Covers

DCeased #5

Not my fav, but it is cool.


DCeased #5
Joshua Middleton

I prefer this cover, but all 3 are good.

Read it

Berserker Unbound #3

Jeff Lemire

Lemire books are slow reads. #2 not much happen, but I still like it.


Batman #80
Tom King

Solid Mattina cover. Pull book..

Star Wars Adventures Return To Vaders Castle #1

Cavan Scott

Francavilla cover and a fun story. I liked the 1st series even though it is all ages style. Great for the kids.

Mountainhead #2

John Lees

I wasn't excited about this title for issue #1, but it got me enough to look at #2.

Canto #5 

David M. Booher

Really jammin on this book. This Ben Bishop incentive cover isn't too shabby either. If you aren't reading it grab the trade later.

Space Bandits #4


Good writing and art check it out.

Die #8

Kieron Gillen

This is on everyone's pull I assume.

Batman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #6


These are fun. I'm not a turtles guy, but I've liked these runs.





House Of X #6
Jonathan Hickman

Series is rocking. I like this cover the best, but I think this series has been lacking quality covers it deserves.



  • Dollar Comics Joker #1- $1
  • Batman #251 Cover B Facsimile Edition – I grab these for later.
  • Spawn #300 Cover R 2nd Ptg Variant Cover
  • Dead Eyes #1 – In case you missed it under the old name.
  • Once & Future #1 6th Final Ptg 
  • Something Is Killing The Children #1 4th Ptg 
  • True Believers X-Men Bishop #1 – $1 but doesn't everyone have this? These live in dollar bins and are a 90s staple.
  • True Believers X-Men Kitty Pryde & Emma Frost #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.

Jim Hensons Dark Crystal Age Of Resistance #1 – 1 per store, not sure artist. This new show is amazing. The practical effects make it crazy. This cover is really cool. Selling $25-40 and bins from $20-35. 1 per store seems like it should be a good number of copies for a book like this. Im skittish on this one, maybe grab for PC under $15 if nm+. I think in a few weeks it will be forgotten. Would make a cool slab. Selling $10-20

Ghost-Spider #2 1:25 – Peach Momoko Selling $35-40 so far with a number of $40 bins available. I'm shy on this one, $20 and under should be safe. $45-50 going well. 

Plot #1 – Gooden & Daniel Vintage Cover Cool homage and going for double cover at times. I'm grabbing for a read and PC, but I think some of these Vault homage covers will get some love long term. Nothing crazy, but some $10 books. Cooled off to cover. 


Wrap Up

Interesting week and we do have a “One” this time. I feel like there should be more cool covers, but I can't find a whole lot and the AC covers are flips. Lot of good reads which is all it takes to make me happy. Let me know if I missed anything and as always thanks for reading and happy Wednesday!

Remember to check out Jack's BOLO list for that last minute update on Wednesday!
