The Wednesday One 12/04/19


Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 12/04/19

A moderate week with a few good flips. That Black Widow trailer was solid, I'm in.


Kill Whitey Donovan #1

Sydney Duncan

This is hot as news of it being optioned by hideout pictures. Jack and Brian made a good video about it. I'm wary about books dropping with news as imo they are planned by publishers as a clear marketing scheme. It usually leads to artificial inflation in which it will be hot for a week and end up in boxes of dead spec the next as the publishers over print. I have a longbox of various mini-series that had options and I know I'm not the only one. Options mean nothing. Grab for cover and flip it quickly if you aren't grabbing to read. Sets are hot at ~$25, but I know a lot of people that cleaned out online stores so expect a flood later in the week.

Conan Serpent War #1 1:100


Sales $150-200 and it seems to be a ghost. I like it, but not nearly that much lol. It seems under ratio is a good flip, but that kinda scratch for a book isn't my cup of tea.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 Retailer Thank You Variant

I don't get it, but it is selling. Shredder holding a MMPR helmet.. cool? Selling well though at $50-70 it seems. I don't see how it holds at that. I think under $20 is a grab maybe. I don't like things I don't understand.

Venom 2099 1:25  Otto Schmidt 

New venom…? A girl gets an injection of some venom. Probably antics ensue. Either way $20-30 is solid. I like it for half ratio or less, but even then.





Spider-Man Venom Double Trouble #2 1:25


Momoko is hot on the streets. A few sales for $30 but this thing is all over the place. There is an auction for $50 so far and some wishful thinking over $100 bins. It think it is a grab at ratio or less. This one is good, but I'm not digging it as much as some it seems.

Cool Covers

Spawn #303


I like what Mattina does with Spawn.

Dead Eyes #3 1:10


I'm not sure what is going on with this title as I hear it has stopped again, but that could be nonsense. Regardless this Zaffino variant is my jam, but I'm a homer.

X-Men #3


Ross never gets old and he does fire so well.

Web Of Black Widow #4

Junggeun Yoon

The trailer was great and so is this cover.

Read it

Butcher Of Paris #1

Stephanie Phillips

These true crime style books aren't my wheel house, but it sounds interesting. I had never heard of this serial killer Marcel Petiot.

Batman #84

Tom King 

Pull book and almost done. I'm excited for JTIV's fresh take in January.

Animosity #25

Marguerite Bennett

New “King of Texas” story arc. As a Texan I'm always curious if writers get Texas right. Speaking of options that haven't bared fruit. I'm still tepidly hopeful, but I'm a fool.

Over The Ropes #1

Jay Sandlin

I'm not a big wrestling guy, but I usually at least flip thru new Madcave titles.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder In Hell #5

Mateus Santolouco

It took a while to get the 5 issues out, but the story is great and moreover the art is amazing. I'm not a tmnt guy, but I def recommend this read.

Die #10

Kieron Gillen

Pull book and great Anna Dittman cover.



  • My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies TP – This is a great read from Brubaker.
  • True Believers Star Wars Vader vs Leia #1
  • True Believers Star Wars The Hunter #1
  • True Believers Star Wars Hutt Run #1
  • True Believers Star Wars Death Probe #1
  • True Believers Star Wars According To The Droids #1
  • True Believers Conan Serpent War #0 Valley Of The Worm
  • Star Wars (Marvel) Vol 1 #1 Cover D Facsimile Edition

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.


Killadelphia #1 both 1:25/1 per  Black Friday Mattina Variant – Seems to be selling solid at $40. I'm not excited for this book, but a lot of folks are about it which has me on board. There is a retail virgin variant that might hurt this book a little, but doesn't seem to have. As I understand it this is a 1 per of some sort as well as 1:25 which is weird. I think $20 or less is a grab. Recently going for $40 is super solid. 

Fallen Angels  #2 1:25 Peach Momoko – Momoko covers seem to have a following. This one is hot going for over ratio around $30 with bins at $40. I dig it. I think it is a grab under $20. Most recent sales ~$25


Wrap Up

A few flavors for each is a solid week imo. I think I got most of the good stuff, but let me know if I missed anything. Thanks for reading and happy Wednesday!
