The Wednesday One – 01/24

Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 1/24

Welcome to another Wednesday. Day 12 of being sick. I’m better than I was, but damn this thing is no joke. It is making it hard to keep up with the funny books. They are a good escape though. There is a “One” this week and it is a great cover. A good number of books to read and some awesome covers to squirrel away in the old PC. Let’s jump right in.



 Phoenix Resurrection Return Of (Adult) Jean Grey #4 Cover D Incentive Mukesh Singh Variant

The “One.” This cover is hot and seems to be going for right over ratio (~$30). I hope to grab one from my lcs this week. I think this one will be popular for a long time as it is beautiful.


Marvel Two-In-One Vol 3 #2 Cover B Variant Gabriele Dell Otto Avengers

This one seems to be hard to get. My lcs didn’t get any so I wonder if there was a strange qualifier. I grabbed a few online. I have seen a few going for double cover. I really like this Otto and it seems like so many of his covers are high ratios so one for cover is a must grab. I think this one stays double cover give or take. I wouldn’t go big on it, probably more a PC book.

Cool Covers

Raven Daughter Of Darkness #1 Cover B Variant Bill Sienkiewicz Cover 

Bill seems to be doing some of his better work lately. I feel like he had a lull last year.

Wonder Woman Vol 5 #39 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover 

Jenny has been killing it and this one is another to grab for the PC. Plus this is on my pull.

 Monstress #13

Sana is amazing. This book is amazing. This should be on everyone’s pull list.

Legion (Marvel) #1 Cover C Incentive TV Variant Cover 1:10

The colors in this cover are awesome and the TV show has had success. I still need to jump on it.

Phoenix Resurrection Return of Jean Grey #4 Cover B Variant In-Hyuk Lee Jean Grey 

Lee has been on a roll lately. I will be adding this to my PC.

Now #2 

This is crazy in so many ways. This is so well done and I love the colors. The stuff of nightmares though.

Other Notables

Abbott #1 Cover C Variant Tula Lotay Cover – Has a great feel.

Batgirl Vol 5 #19 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover – This is good, but his others have been better. Take a look and see if you like it.

Legion (Marvel) #1 Cover B Variant Bill Sienkiewicz – This cover is good and this one may have grabbed a little heat.

Blue Beetle Vol 4 #17 Cover B Variant Tyler Kirkham Cover – One of Kirkhams better ones. Great detail.

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 #794 Cover A Regular Alex Ross Cover – This Ross is great.

Skip it

I didn’t see anything that was super no which is good.

Read it


 Vinegar Teeth #1 

Touted as “An epic genre mash-up: horror, humor, crime, and science fiction!” It sounds crazy and I’ll give it a read.

Sherlock Frankenstein And The Legion Of Evil #4 Cover A Regular David Rubin Cover

 The Black Hammer Universe is good so far. I am behind but plan on catching up soon.

 Doomsday Clock #3 Cover B Variant Gary Frank Cover

If you aren’t in you should be. There is so much to be revealed it is exciting to pick up.

Flash Vol 5 #39 Cover B Variant Tony S Daniel Flash 700 Cover 

Flash is on my pull and has been solid. These numbered variants have done well so far so grab the B cover if this is your Jam also.

Thanos Vol 2 #15 

Cates has been killing it and this is a hot read. Plus we learn who the Cosmic Ghost Rider is! This one might even get a little heat.

Detective Comics Vol 2 #973 Cover B Variant Rafael Albuquerque Cover 

Always on my pull and the end is pretty cool.

Maestros #4 – I really like the art in this book, but time will tell how the story does.

Action Comics Vol 2 #996 Cover B Variant Dustin Nguyen Cover – Always have action on the pull. It is consistently good.

Nightwing The New Order #6 – The last issue. The trade will be out before too long if you aren’t reading it currently.

Black Magick #10 Cover B Variant Tula Lotay Cover – I’m behind on this, I might wait for the next trade to catch up I liked what I read so far and It was optioned.

Gasolina #5 – I read the first 2 and they were good. I know a few people that read it and say it is good. I want to catch up, but we will see.

Redneck #9 – Donny is hot and this book is still going strong.

Justice League Of America Vol 5 #23 Cover B Variant Doug Mahnke Cover – This has some buzz I think some new character (Promethea?) is joining the JLA, but I’m not sure. I’m going to flip thru it at my lcs.

Abbott #1 Cover C Variant Tula Lotay Cover – Sounds okay. I might flip thru it. The Lotay cover is cool.


  • X-O Manowar Vol 4 #11 Cover E Incentive Jay Anacleto X-O Manowar Icon Variant and Ninja-K #3 Cover E Incentive Tomas Giorello Ninjak Icon Variant are 2 high ratio Valiant to keep an eye out for. If you find em cheap enough, flip them bad boys.
  • Teen Titans Vol 6 #12 Cover C 2nd Ptg Variant – I’m not big on 2nd printings, but if you missed out def grab one. I’m might grab one for grins.
  • Avengers Vol 6 #677 – iirc we are still expecting a new character Challenger.

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.)

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. This is still around $100 give or take. One went for $65 anther for $120, but most ~$100.

Cool cover and skip look back. Double Bonus.

Teether #1 – Cool cover no prediction – This is all over the place. cover to 3x cover. 

Ice Cream Man #1 – I had this as a read. no spec. – This heated up but seems to have settled around double cover. I think this is a one-shot so dump em quick. 

Call of the suicide forest #1 – Not on any list – This jumped up, but has settled at a few $ over cover. 


A read look back. Triple bonus!

Avengers Vol 6 #676 – No spec. – This book is being considered the 1st full app of Voyager. This was hitting $15-20 a copy and then undercutting brought it back down to cover. If you can grab one for cover it is probably a good idea. This has a chance to have long-term legs. 



The “One” is a great cover and there a lot of great books this week. Some great reveals (Thanos) and crazy endings (Tec). Thanks as always for reading. Let me know if I missed anything. What are you looking forward to this week? Let me know and have a happy Wednesday.
