The Wednesday One 11/13/19

wednesday

Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 11/13/19

Lot of reads this week. Few good covers and some flips, but I don't think I'll be able to get the ones I want.

Flipdipskys

Far Sector #1

I don't see the appeal, but it seems be selling from cover to $10. Might be something there, but I don't see it.

Marvel Action Spider-Man #11 1:10

2 sold for $40-45 and a number listed for ~$60. Supposed to be low print. Again I don't get it, but that is why I miss out. If you see it for double ratio or less it seems like a good flip. I only mess with what I know and understand. Sometimes it seems like reaching.

 

 

 

 

 

Marvel Tales Doctor Strange #1 1:50

Inhyuk Lee

This cover is straight fire. I can't find any sold but 2x listed for $130. I don't think I ever find it for something I'd actually pay, but this must be one of his best covers.

Cool Covers

Superman #17

Hughes

I haven't liked a lot of his recent covers, but this one I dig.

Batmans Grave #2

Jeehyung Lee

I like this free diving bats.

Wonder Woman #82

Frison

I'm a Frison Homer and I like this different style, but I feel like a few things are off.

 

Fallen Angels #1 1:50

Otto

Rumored new toon and I dig an Otto cover. This one is going for under ratio and I don't think most people are feeling it. There was 1 sale yesterday for $60, but bins available for $32-40.

 

 

 

 

Justice League Odyssey #15

Lucio Parrillo

I usually don't like Parrillo covers as they just seem blurry, but I like this one.

Read it

Detective Comics Vol 2 #1015

Peter J Tomasi

Pull book.

Oblivion Song Kirkman & De Felici #21

Solid read.

Black Stars Above #1

Lonnie Nadler

Not excited about it, but I try new Vault titles.

Black Hammer Justice League Hammer Of Justice #5

Lemire

BH is solid and I dig a Dodson cover. I think it is better in trades, but Lemire is like that.

Flash #82

Joshua Williamson

Pull book.

Punisher Soviet #1

Garth Ennis

Normally I wouldn't grab a new Punisher book, but Ennis okay I'll check it out.

Gideon Falls #18

Lemire

Great read and art.

Event Leviathan #6

Brian Michael Bendis

The reveal issue.

Edgar Allan Poes Snifter Of Terror Season 2 #2

Mark Russell & Others

Always fun.

Folklords #1

Matt Kindt

I like Kindt books. I really liked Black Badge, but I thought it could have ended better.

 

 

 

 

X-Men Vol 5 #2

Hickman

1st issue had a surprise. Let's see what happens.

Notes

  • Absolute Swamp Thing By Alan Moore Vol 1 HC – Not cheap but cool.
  • Dollar Comics Blackest Night #1 
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Road To 100 #0 – FREE
  • Tomb Of Dracula #10 Cover C Facsimile Edition – Grab for PC. I think these do well long term.

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.

Future Fight Firsts Crescent And Io #1 1:100 – Inhyuk Lee – Another Ghost. Who knows with these. I think ratio or less is a buy if clean, but too rich for my blood, not that I'd ever see one anyway. 1 sold for $190 and one bin listed for that. A few avail at online retailers it seems. Last sold for ~$130. these are so crazy. 

X-Force #1 1:100  – Todd McFarlane Great cover. This is selling for $150 to $50 and everything in between. Bins start around $100 and I think it will go 80 to 100 tomorrow as this should be a well ordered #1, but have solid demand. I'm cheap and want it for close to half ratio, but that is probably wishful thinking. I can wait a few weeks and let this cool. $90-120 I underestimate nostalgia. 

 

Wrap Up

The Mandalorian started off really good, I'm super excited for more. A lot of stuff starts off with such promise. So few seem to hold attention. Lot of new #1s every week and only a few ever hold attention. Even some of the good ones I fall off. Trying to find the gems is all part of it I suppose. Anyway let me know if I missed anything and I appreciate the comments. Thanks for reading and happy Wednesday!

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

    That Dr. Strange cover is great. I won’t pay for it either but it’s really nice. The diving Batman is cool. Nothing else really grabs me from strictly a cover perspective. The only things on my subscription list coming out today that I’m anxious to read are GOTG and Detective Comics. I really liked episode 1 of the Mandalorian btw. Dark, gritty Star Wars is where it’s always been at for me.

    What’s not to get about Far Sector? The Naomi vibe seems obvious.

    How many new #1s are there every year? Young animal titles havent done well and iirc were all cancelled for low sales. I dont know that id call it a mature title. That is more black label. The new YA titles were more teen. There are 10 new characters every week and how many lanterns are there now? Yeah the new series has hope for sure. But, i dont want it to be about some new toon. I want the classics, but that is me. Lots of things get hot. cbsi is about spec and investing that doesnt mean every flash in the pan title to me. Every writer has their own perspective on it though. It would be really boring if we all agreed. I see what you are saying though. There is hype regardless of what i think.

    Surprised Unsacred has not been mentioned.

      I had to look it up. I hadn’t heard anything about it. It is in stock in a few places it seems. Have you read it and if so was it good? It doesn’t look like something I would go for.
