The Wednesday One – 01/17

Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 1/17

Another slow week it seems. There is definitely a “One” no doubt about it as Dell Otto is relentless. I missed out, but can’t win em all. I am content with a few cool covers and a good read or two. Are there any other flips? Let’s find out. Also, this week’s write up will be short as I’m recovering from the sickness.


Amazing Spider-Man Venom Venom Inc Omega #1 Cover B Incentive Gabriele Dell Otto – 

Not his best work, but seems to be selling for around $100. I figure it will stay around that or go down a little. The Alpha was a first appearance which gave it legs.

Cool Covers

 Trinity Vol 2 #17 Cover B Variant Bill Sienkiewicz Cover

I love this cover mostly because it is the JL fighting dinosaurs which is awesome!

 Aquaman Vol 6 #32 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover

One of Middleton’s best. A book that will be buried deep in some PC’s I think. This might even heat up to double or triple cover, but if it does it will probably be brief.

 Batman Vol 3 #39 Cover B Variant Olivier Coipel Cover 

Another good Coipel. Also, word is that this will have the first appearance of a new hero. I’m grabbing a few, but know that print runs of Bats are huge. This might have legs though.

Teether #1 

Some are specing this due to low print run and cool premise. I think the cover is cool at least, I’m not totally sold on the spec.

Skip it






 Days Of Hate #1

A new Image #1, no surprise. The premise isn’t enticing to me at all. I’m gonna pass on this maxi.

Read it


Kill Or Be Killed #15 – 

I look forward to this every month. It is an incredible read. The 3rd tpb drops also this week and collects issues 11-14 so it is easy to catch up!

 Damage Vol 2 #1 Vertical Foldout Cover

A Metal spinoff which has my interest. I’ll give it a shot.



Avengers Vol 6 #676 – I hear someone might die and there might be a new character also. I’ll check it out, might be worth a read.  Evolution #3

This book is great so far. I really like it.

Injustice 2 #18 – I have it on my pull but I’m behind.

Batman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II #3 Cover B Variant Kevin Eastman – The first run was great. I need to catch up on this series.

Ice Cream Man #1 – I hear good chatter about this book being a crazy read. I’m going to flip thru it at my lcs to see if it catches my eye.

Street Fighter Reloaded #5 – I am making a set as they are $1ea.

Alien Bounty Hunter #3 – Cool premise and has been good so far.

Doctor Strange Vol 4 #384 – Cates is hot and doing some great writing.

Further Adventures Of Nick Wilson #1 Cover A Regular Pete Woods Cover – This sounds like it might be interesting. I’m def gonna grab.

All-New Wolverine #29 – I like this book. I know it doesn’t get a lot of love.


  • Don’t get the sickness. It hurts so bad.

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.)

Comic Title –  Prediction. Reality.

 Flash Vol 5 #38 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover – It was going for double cover and is a good hold. – This book seems to still be getting double cover. I had trouble finding a nm+ copy. 

Avengers Vol 6 #675 Cover G Incentive Alex Ross Color Variant 1:100 – I saw 4 sales today $50-60, I am hoping it drops a little lower for me to snag. I think it is a fair grab $35 or under incase undercutting hits hard. Is it even a good flip? – This surprisingly grew some legs. It is selling from $50 to $80 with most around $60 or so. I grabbed one at $50 because I like the Ross and somehow that worked out. It usually doesn’t. Anyone have an idea why? 

 Double Bonus look back.

Thanos #13 Albuquerque 1:25 – This thing hit a high of $150 raw recently. I never saw this coming. Who is the cosmic ghost rider? Will it the price tank when we find out, or will it keep going up? What do you think?



Hope Y’all have a good week. Sorry, it was a shorter write-up than I wanted.  Were you able to grab that Dell Otto “One”? What are Y’all excited about this week? Let me know and as always have a happy Wednesday!
