The Wednesday One 05/09/18

Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 05/09/18

Venom #1 is here… again… yay? Another week and it is bringing the action. Normally I would be pretty ho-hum about another venom #1, but I really like Cates’s writing. I’m also excited about the exiles spec. I’m curious how it plays out. The last issue of White Knight is exciting and I can’t wait to read Analog also. Let’s see what is going down this week.


 Venom Vol 4 #1 Cover F Incentive Ryan Stegman Virgin Cover

Venom is big and so will be the print run for this #1. This book has a lot of 1sts and the big thing is Cates. He is so hot right now like Hansel. Can’t wait to read it. Presales as low as $30. I grabbed one off the bay for $35 shipped. I think it stays below half ratio at least for a while. I think $30 or less is a safe grab.

Scooby Apocalypse #25 Cover B Variant Bryan Hitch Cover 

Touted as the death of Fred. This book has some heat, but most deaths don’t lead to lasting price increases. Quick flip imo. I think it will get $10 for a few days. Cover A is a good grab also. Few presold sets for $20.

Game Of Thrones Clash Of Kings #10 Cover E Incentive Mike Miller Virgin Cover 

I don’t dig these, but a few out there do. 1 more year till the last season changes TV forever.

Venom Vol 4 #1 Cover E Incentive J Scott Campbell Variant Cover 

Yeah, the fingers are weird, but it is a great Venom and different than most JSC. Presales are ~$25. I think this stays low. I paid too much for my pre-order copy. Too many store variants also means these will be plentiful.

 Exiles Vol 5 #3 Cover C Incentive Game Variant Cover 1:10

These are hard to find and should make a good flip. I like the new Peggy as Cap, but this might be just a quick gimmick, hope not. I like this cover better. Presales at $30. I think it stays at $25 or higher. Try to get for $15 or less to be safe. If I get one I might hold for PC personally, but that is probably the wrong move. This is the “One.”

Exiles Vol 5 #3 Cover D Incentive Javier Rodriguez Variant Cover 1:25

These will be even harder to find and should also flip well, but not as cool of a cover. I might save one of these also.

Cool Covers


 Detective Comics Vol 2 #980 Cover B Variant Rafael Albuquerque Cover

Tec is solid and 20 issues from 1000 with this sweet Albuquerque cover.

 Flash Vol 5 #46 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover

I love this cover. I ordered a few from a few places so hopefully, I can get a nm+ copy.

 Suicide Squad Vol 4 #41 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover

Good not great. I will grab for PC though.

 Wonder Woman Vol 5 #46 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover

Frison still doing really well.

 Star Trek The Next Generation Through The Mirror #2 Cover C Incentive Photo Variant Cover

I’m a big TNG fan and I am loving these photo covers. I think they would do well at Trek cons.

Maestros #6 Cover B Variant Virgin Wraparound Cover

Amazing cover and a good read.

Monstress #16 

One of the best reads and Sana’s art is amazing.

Hunt For Wolverine Adamantium Agenda #1 Cover C Variant Todd Nauck Wheres Wolverine Connecting Cover 

I like these and will complete the set.

 Star Wars Last Jedi Adaptation #1 Cover B Incentive Movie Variant Cover

I like these covers and these would be great for Adam Driver sigs. These might even have some long-term hope. Presales ~$10.

 Warhammer 40000 Deathwatch #1 Cover C Variant Connor Magill Cover

Just a cool cover.

Maestros #6 Cover A Regular Steve Skroce Cover 

This cover is also amazing.

Rose #11 Cover B Variant LoopyDave Cover 

I like these loopydave covers.

Skip it

Nothing really bad this week.

Read it


 World Of Tanks Citadel #1

I like the game and Ennis so I’ll flip thru it.

Isola #2 Cover C Variant Karl Kerschl & Msassyk We Believe Virgin Cover 

Isola #1 was good and I can’t wait to read #2.

 Analog #2 Cover B Variant Phil Noto Cover 

I loved #1 and can’t wait for this one. This is the book I’m most looking forward to reading.

Port Of Earth #5

Good read. I’m behind though.  

 Batman White Knight #8 Cover B Variant Sean Murphy Cover

Last issue of this first run. Another book I’m very excited to read.

Ghost Money #10 

French reprint is a good read.

 Smoketown #7

Good indie read.

 Star Wars Thrawn #4 Cover A Regular Paul Renaud Cover

I like Thrawn and so far this mini is really good.

 Old Man Logan Vol 2 #39

I like OML and it is a pull read.

Hunt For Wolverine Adamantium Agenda #1 Cover B Variant RB Silva Cover 

This is probably a waste of $4, but I like the Wolverine and will grab it.

 Barrier #1 Collectors Edition

This Brian K Vaughan is a pickup for me. #2 is out also.

Black Cloud #9 

I read the 1st trade and was intrigued. I’m behind and will probably read the next trade.


  • True Believers Wolverine Blood Hungry #1 – $1
  • True Believers Wolverine vs Sabretooth #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.)

Cyborg Vol 2 #22 Cover B Variant Carlos DAnda Cover- Grab a clean copy it will probably get 2x cover.– This is $10-15

DC Nation #0 Cover C Incentive Clay Mann Batman Variant Cover 1:250 – Pre-sales $20-30. Probably the best of the covers.– Sitting about $20. 

 Red Sonja Tarzan #1 Cover J Incentive Adam Hughes Virgin Cover – Presales seem to be $30, but it seems to be a ghost. I think $20 or less is a great grab. –  Few sales around $50, 1 today for $75 

Avengers Vol 7 #1 Cover E Incentive Esad Ribic Variant Cover 1:50 – Presales $25-30 and I think this is the best-looking cover, I didn’t give a spec $. – Dirt cheap now at ~$20+

Venomized #5 Cover C Incentive Gerardo Sandoval Variant Cover 1:25 – Good grab at $20 or less. I think it stays around $30 on Wednesday. – This is doing really well. Sitting ~$75 

Wrap Up

Another week and there is a “One.” I’m excited for Exiles and Venom and curious how the week will treat them. Barrier #1-2 has my attention and I look forward to White Knight as well as reading Analog. Last week had a big winner with Venomized which I was way low on. I’m still not sure if I should sell or keep mine. What are looking forward to this week? Did I miss anything? Let me know and as always thanks for reading!
