The Wednesday One 06/13/18

Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 06/13/18

This is a big week. Few potential flips and a score of cool covers, but I need to cut some reads, but I’m not sure which yet. This week is going to hurt my wallet.


Venom Vol 4 #2 Cover C Incentive Sam Kieth Variant Cover 1:25 

This is hot for the potential of a 1st app or cameo. I heard reports of a page splash, but I will flip through it at my lcs. This is the “One” as I think it has a solid chance to flip and maybe catch heat. Presales solid at $20. Seems to be sold out online. I think this one gets some legs and will be a $25-35 book. Also a Cates book so it is a read also.

DuckTales Vol 4 #9 Cover C Incentive Blueprint Character-Focused Variant Cover

It is no secret I don’t like these. But, they have a good track record so I won’t kick it out of bed. Presales are ~$25. Grab for $10 or less to be safe. I hate these.

Weatherman #1 Cover C Incentive Matteo Scalera Variant Cover 1:25

I like the story so far, but the art and the font just don’t agree with me. This is the ratio variant that might catch some heat.

Marvel Rising Alpha #1 Cover C Incentive Stacy Lee Variant Cover

This might have the new team, but I thought it was issue #0. If I see it for cheap I might grab one, but I’m not swooning for it. Presales $30. Grab for $15 or less to be safe. I think no one cares about it in 2 weeks.

Cool Covers


Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #46 Cover B Variant Tyler Kirkham Cover

Kirkham doesn’t get enough love.

Flash Vol 5 #48 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover

Still loving these Mattina Flash covers.

Detective Comics Vol 2 #982 Cover B Variant Mark Brooks Cover

Brooks still doing great. Another great cover for the virginesque B covers.

Suicide Squad Vol 4 #43 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover

Another awesome Mattina. I love the skulls.

Wonder Woman Vol 5 #48 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover

I like the line up in this Frison.

Monstress #17

Crazy good Sana still doing it. One of the best reads out right now.

Rose #12 Cover B Variant LoopyDave Cover

I warmed up to these Loopydave covers and have started collecting them.

Darth Vader Vol 2 #17 Cover A Regular Giuseppe Camuncoli & Elia Bonetti Cover

This is an amazing regular cover. DV is one of the best titles Marvel puts out. If you like good Star Wars stories grab a few trades and catch up.

Deadpool Assassin #1 Cover B Variant Bill Sienkiewicz Cover

I really like this cover. Reminds me of the Deadpool Spidey Del Mundo variant.


Hawkman Vol 5 #1 Cover B Variant Stjepan Sejic Cover

I’m not big on this one, but I know so folks are loving it.

Marvel Two-In-One Vol 3 Annual #1 Cover B Variant Pyeong Jun Park Cover

Love this cover. Park just made my radar. Def a t-shirt as Mel V would say.

Star Wars Thrawn #5 Cover B Incentive Rafael Albuquerque Variant Cover 1:25

Thrawn and his ship Chimaera plus Alburquerue is a win for me. I really like this cover. It probably won’t do anything, but it is sweet. This might even flip.

Thor Vol 5 #1 Cover F Incentive Christian Ward Variant Cover 1:25

That last Ward Thanos cover sold me on his work and this one is great. I hope I can get it. Heck it might even flip.

Venom Vol 4 #2 Cover B Variant Mike Del Mundo Young Guns Cover

Good not great, but I like the young guns series.

Heavy Metal #290 Cover C Ayute Aydogdu

This cover is so metal I had to get one. Probably my first HM book ever.

American Gods My Ainsel #4 Cover B Variant David Mack Cover

This Mack is amazing. I like Mack, but this is great even for him.

Read it

Mister Miracle Vol 4 #9 Cover B Variant Mitch Gerads Cover

This book needs to come out on time so I have half a chance of following the story.

Analog #3 Cover A Regular David O’Sullivan Cover

I really like the story so far. I can’t wait for #3. Glad it got optioned.

Magic Order #1 Cover C Variant Adam Hughes Cover

Super hyped as this is the 1st Netflix book. Plus a Hughes cover is a def grab. I hope the story is good.

Oblivion Song By Kirkman & De Felici #4

So far it is good, not great. I’m still in it.

Proxima Centauri #1

Curious about this book. Dirymple did the whole thing. The one vision books can be interesting.

Stellar #1

Cool premise, if the interior looks good I’ll grab one.

Weeknd Presents Starboy #1

From my understanding, it is based off an album or song. I’m not totally sure, but I’ll check it out.

Animosity Evolution #6

I think I’m the only one reading this series, but it is good. It isn’t consistent

Walk Through Hell #2

The 1st one was good. High hopes for the 2nd.

Dead Hand #3

So far really good.

Babyteeth #11

I still need to read this book. If only because of Cates. I hear good things though.

Zinnober #1 Cover B Variant Cover

Love the concept. I usually grab new Scout titles anyway.

Old Man Logan Vol 2 #41

OML is a solid book.

Punisher Vol 10 #226

I hear good things about this current run. I have been really liking the Crain covers.

Hunt For Wolverine Adamantium Agenda #2 Cover A Regular Greg Land Cover

These aren’t great so far, but I like them. I like Wolvie so I’m an easy mark.

Exiles Vol 5 #4 Cover A Regular David Marquez Cover

The new Peggy Cap got me reading this. It isn’t great, but I’m curious where it goes.


  • True Believers Ant-Man And The Wasp On The Trail Of Spider-Man #1 – $1
  • True Believers Ant-Man And The Wasp Til Death Do Us Part #1 – $1
  • Wasted Space #1 has 2x 2nd prints.
  • Bloodshot Salvation #10 Cover D Incentive Kim Jung Gi Bloodshot Icon Variant Cover – High ratio Valiant
  • Isola #1 Cover E 3rd Ptg Variant Karl Kerschyl & Msassyk Cover

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.)

Doctor Strange Vol 5 #1 Cover D Incentive Gabriele Dell Otto Variant Cover 1:50 – Presales $70-90 so far, but there are a few for sale at $40 this evening. I’m not sure what to think on this one. I think it sits at $40-50, I think $30 is a safe buy. I think long term it gets forgotten. – Sitting about $40. 

Immortal Hulk #1 Cover D Incentive Clayton Crain Variant Cover 1:25 –Sold for as high as $40, but recently $15-25. I think it drops down with undercutting. I think $12 or less to be safe if it does go down. The cheapest bin is $20. – $15-20 at the end of the week. 

Ant-Man And The Wasp #1 Cover E Incentive Nick Bradshaw Variant Cover – 1 sold for $50 presale and the few for sale are $50. I think a few people might want it thinking it will be rare. If you see it for half ratio, it may be a flip. – The last one was $25 but there are only 2 recently. Few listed. 

Deadpool Vol 6 #1 Cover G Incentive Jerome Opena Variant Cover 1:50 – Presales $40-50 and many are listed in that range also. I think $30 or under is a good buy and I’ll be hunting for one. I think it sits around $40. Seems to be $30-40 still a few auctions yet to close. 

Infinity Countdown #4 Cover D Variant Adi Granov Turk Holds Infinity Cover – This one I have on here as I heard there may be a reveal, but I’m not sure at all. The cover is a good Granov at least. Mostly going for $5ish. no gains. 

Immortal Hulk #1 Cover E Incentive Dale Keown Variant Cover 1:50 – Presales $30-40. I think this stays at $25-30. Try to get $20 or lower. – $35-40 

Wrap Up

Another big week and we have a “One.” What do Y’all think about this week and the “One”? I wish there were less new titles as I think that is where I am going to make some cuts. I need to go easy on the covers also. Last week was okay for flips with none catching great heat so I hope something takes off this week. Let me know what Y’all are jamming on this week and thanks for reading. Also if you haven’t check of the writer wars I def recommend it. There are so many amazing articles on the site right now it is epic.
