The Wednesday One 02/20/19

Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 02/20/19

This is a big week with some good hunting to be had. Tons of reads.


Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 5 #2 Cover B Incentive Matteo Scalera Variant Cover 1:25

A lot of buzz around this one, but a lot of Donny books have buzz by default. Grabbing a solid $45 so far. I think it drops a bit. There are a lot listed and I think there will be an undercut. Well under ratio should be a good grab even if there is nothing key or hasn’t been made key by retcon.


Return Of Wolverine #5 Cover C Incentive Adi Granov Variant Cover 1:25

I’m not sure which way this one will go with the store variant. Either way I do want one for my PC. It is one of the better Granov covers in a while. I think it floods and stays below ratio. Sales $11-25 with $20 bins listed. I think it will $15-20 with a good amount of traffic. The trade dress works with the cover imo.

Solo A Star Wars Story Adaptation #5 Cover B Incentive Scott Forbes Variant Cover 1:25

These are hit or miss. I think this one does around ratio. Auction at $31 and $60 bin avail. It is an okay cover imo.


Avengers Vol 7 #15 Cover B Variant Gerald Parel Captain Marvel Cover

$20 sales, but $10 bins. This is a classic cover. I can see this be $10 for a long time, great cover. Early reactions to the movie seem pretty solid so far. Ben Mendelsohn (Talos) is a standout apparently and a few mentions for the cat Goose.




Hulkverines #1 Cover C Incentive Cory Smith Variant Cover 1:25

I just don’t know about this. Shark jump? Going for about ratio so far. I might grab for half ratio. I might keep it too. Maybe there is something to save it.

Cool Covers

Nightwing Vol 4 #57 Cover B Variant Jeff Dekal Cover

This cover is growing on me every time I see it. I hope I can find a clean one.

High Level #1 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina

A few sales over cover but most right at cover. Probably sit a few over. PC cover for me. I love the colors, this cover is amazing.

Love Romances One Shot Cover B Variant Russell Dauterman Young Guns Cover

This is a great classic cover. I probably won’t grab one, but I like it.

Return Of Wolverine #5 Cover B Variant Adam Kubert Cover

Great cover and another tough dark cover.

Bloodborne #9 Cover C Variant Game Art Cover

I don’t know much about this book other than it is a game and this cover is amazing. I think some of these game books are overlooked. One of the comments in Andy’s article spoke very highly of the series.

Wolverine Infinity Watch #1 Cover B Variant Jee Hyung Lee Skrulls Cover

I do like some Hyung Lee covers and I shouldn’t like this one but I do. All the covers for this book have something to them. The ratio book isn’t bad.

Black Order #4 Cover B Variant John Tyler Christopher Cover

JTC killed it. This cover is definitely going into the PC collection. 3rd black cool cover this week. Really hope they are all clean.

Teen Titans Vol 6 #27 Cover B Variant Alex Garner Cover

I grabbed all the others but I might skip this one. Still I do like a complete set.




Black Widow Vol 7 #2

Now I’m not saying to grab this cover. I’m just saying I like a busty broad with a mini-gun on a cover. Seriously though this cover rips.

Read it

Batman Vol 3 #65 Cover B Variant Jeffrey Alan Love Cover

Pull book. Mostly good, seems to be on a run.

Catwoman Vol 5 #8 Cover A Regular Joelle Jones Cover

I’ve actually liked this book for the read as well as all the amazing B covers. Jones’s covers have been really good, but usually play 2nd fiddle. The B Daniel cover is nice also.

Bitter Root #4 Cover C Variant Kevin Nowlan Cover

This book is a really good read. Has a great feel and style.

Evolution #14

I still read and enjoy it. Good art.

Sharkey The Bounty Hunter #1 Cover D Variant Matteo Scalera Cover

I think this is a mini. Millar books are a crap shoot. Usually hyped and well printed. Folks seem to like this cover. I might grab one to read.

Monstress #20

More people should be reading this. Glad it is back.

Venom Vol 4 #11 Cover C Variant Dave Gibbons Cover

What? Another hyped Cates book? No way. I have this on my pull and I dig this watchman homage.

Hot Lunch Special #5

Another great read. Too many good ones this week.

Monstrous #4

I think this is the last one.

Knights Of The Golden Sun #4

I have the 1st 3 issues and hope to grab this one. I really like the art style of these Mad Cave books.

Stronghold Vol 2 #1 Cover B Incentive Tyler Walpole Variant Cover 1:10

I like this cover and I usually try new Aftershock books. I don’t know anything about vol#1. I like this cover, but most of these A.S. titles dont heat up. Curious how it reads so I’ll flip thru it.

Wulfborne #1

I try new Scout titles. “combination of Hellboy and Adventure Time” . Meh, but I’ll check it out.




Black Badge #7

This book is so good get on it! I think it has a long term chance for #1 to heat up as I see it start to sell out at online shops. But Boom! titles have the worst track record.


  • Die #1 Cover D 3rd Ptg Variant Stephanie Hans Cover – Die is getting warm. Great read.
  • True Believers Captain Marvel Binary #1 – $1
  • True Believers Captain Marvel Earths Mightiest Hero #1 – $1
  • True Believers Captain Marvel Kree Skrull War #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 OK one week later!!!

(Last week’s spec will be quoted like this. What it really did will look like this.)

Avengers No Road Home #1 Cover E Incentive Mark Brooks Variant Cover 1:25 Brooks – Going for $10-12 they should be really plentiful. I’ll grab a PC if I find it under $10. Going for right over cover. ouch. 

Avengers No Road Home #1 Cover F Incentive Adam Hughes Variant Cover 1:50 – `Not my favorite Hughes cover. It is good not great. Dark cover might make it hard to find clean, but print run will be solid. Selling for about ratio. I’d grab for half ratio as I think it drops to $35-45. Which is still solid. If I get one it will probably go into my PC though. Killing it at $70-80 with $200 9.8 fast track. 

Dead Man Logan #4 Cover B Incentive Gerardo Zaffino Variant Cover 1:25 – From $17-75 but mostly $50. I have been grabbing Zaffino covers lately and wish I could grab this one for under ratio for PC. I think there will be a good amount listed because it has been hot for days, but it will stay $40-50 which is great. There is a good chance I’m low on this one though as auctions with 12hrs left are nearing $70. Guessing 35k/25=1400 ballpark. The black cover might make clean ones a challenge. $60-70 and on fire!! 

Marvel Tales Black Widow #1 Cover B Incentive Jen Bartel Virgin Cover 1:50 – 3 listed and I can’t find any sales. $8 cover this is probably scarce. It is a really good cover, but I don’t think it can hang. I think it ends up around ratio and not much action. 3 sold with 3 listed. Seems to be $150-200+

Savage Sword Of Conan #1 Cover E Incentive Rahzzah Color Variant Cover 1:25 – It seems like no one cares about this cover. I really like it. Already a flood and cheap. I can’t find any sold recently. last was 2-3 days ago. Grab for under $10 for PC and even then Right over cover- 2x cover. 

Star Wars Han Solo Imperial Cadet #4 Cover B Incentive Caspar Wijngaard Variant Cover 1:25 – I have no idea on these. Last was a few days ago for $30. I only see 3 sold and 1 current auction. Little supply but little demand I think. I’d take a chance for half ratio or less. $20ish not many moving 

Exciting Comics Vol 2 #1 Cover E Variant Speedway Cover – I don’t get it. This is a $20 book apparently and it is selling for that with a few listed for more. Something about different covers have different retail price. Pass for me.  $33 most recent. 3 sold <- this was an edit. I searched it wrong. 

Captain Marvel Vol 9 #2 Cover D Incentive Chris Bachalo Variant Cover 1:50 –  almost forgot about this cover. One sold for $65 and bin is $60. I don’t see it. Cover is okay.  If I find it under $20 I’ll try to flip it. I think it goes down under ratio. But, I don’t care. Bins at $70, but sales at $80-100. 


Wrap Up



Another big week that will destroy my wallet. I was trying to avoid tec1k variants, but that didn’t go so well. I need to get to listing and it looks like the Capt Marvel should do well, plus people will be getting returns soon. Sorry I was late getting this done. Let me know if I missed anything and thanks.
