The Wednesday One 10/24/18

Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 10/24/18

Slow week, but it has some tasty treats including 2x “One”s. These covers are great and should be very accessible. There is some goodness all around this week actually. At first I thought it was slow, but it seems to be more medium. Let’s see what is going down.


Batgirl Vol 5 #28 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover

This cover is amazing. Middleton is so diverse in style. I want a 9.8 and hope to grab a few for my pc. Presales are bonkers from $10-25 which is nuts. These are still available in some places. “One.” An instant classic.

Wonder Woman Vol 5 #57 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover

Jenny’s WW run has been great but this is definitely near the top. This is selling $10-15 already. I think it stays a $10 book or drops to double cover when the market floods. “One” too.


Judge Dredd Toxic #1 Cover B Variant John Gallagher Cover

This seems to be sold out online and might heat up. Great cover. I couldn’t find many listed or sold.

Lodger #1 Cover B Incentive Bill Sienkiewicz Variant Cover 1:10

Seems to be ghostly and maybe catch some heat from bill fans. I’m not a fan of Black Crown titles in terms of flips so I wouldn’t pay much over cover if you want to try to flip it. I hope it is a good read. I grabbed one from mcs for $7 from my pc.

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 #8 Cover D Incentive JG Jones Black Cat Virgin Variant Cover 1:100

I think this will be a ghost, but I also don’t think there will be much demand for it. It is a good cover though and Id grab it if you see a clean one for really cheap. Like $25 or less cheap.

Black Panther vs Deadpool #1 Cover C Incentive Adi Granov Variant Cover 1:50 

I really like this Granov. and I think it has a chance to stay warm. Few sales $45-50 and i think it stays $40+, but try to grab $30 or less to be safe. Half raito is a great buy imo.

Return Of Wolverine #2 Cover C Incentive David Marquez Variant Cover 1:25

I think this is the best of the return covers and will probably be easy to find. I think $10 is safe as there are a few sales so far for $15. Probably better as a PC book than a flip.

Spider-Gwen Ghost Spider #1 Cover H Incentive Jee Hyung Variant Cover 1:100

Presales are crazy high at double ratio and higher. I think this will be super hard to find and it is a great cover. I’d still be somewhat safe and grab at ratio or less. This is a monster.

Dead Kings #1 Cover A Regular Matthew Dow Smith Cover

Presales are ~$10 but I think it drops to around double cover as the market floods. Sounds like a good read either way.

Spider-Girls #1 Cover C Incentive Jeff Dekal Variant Cover 1:50 

This book is all over from $40-80. I think it will be scarce and it is a good cover, but I’m not sold on Spider-girls. Also there is almost spider-everything overload right now.


Moon Knight Vol 8 #200 Cover C Incentive Philip Tan Variant Cover 1:25

I think this is the best of the MK covers. The Fitch seems bloated to me. I think this should be attainable to. Presales $25-35, but 1 sold for $15. I think $12 or less (basically half ratio) is a grab for me. If I get one it will be PC for me.


Cool Covers

Detective Comics Vol 2 #991 Cover B Variant Mark Brooks Cover

Another great Brooks cover and DC is solid. Always on my pull list.

Flash Vol 5 #57 Cover B Variant Howard Porter Cover

This seems to be selling out online and might heat up. I’m only grabbing a reader. I don’t love it like some of the Mattina covers, but it is solid. This is a pull book for me.

Books Of Magic Vol 3 #1 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover

Some might grab this as middleton is hot and it is a good cover, but it doesn’t do anything for me.

Vampirella Dejah Thoris #2 Cover G Incentive Joe Jusko Virgin Cover

I really like this cover, but I don’t think I will be able to find one in my lcs.

Return Of Wolverine #2 Cover E Incentive Moebius Hidden Gem Color Variant Cover 1:500

I love this cover, but it isn’t a flip as almost no one will be able to find one at anything close to reasonable. Still cool though.

Spider-Geddon #2 Cover B Variant In-Hyuk Lee Connecting Cover

I have to complete the set. It is so good.

X-Men Black Juggernaut #1 Cover A Regular J Scott Campbell Cover

I really like this cover. I think JSC needs to do more covers like this instead of all pin-up style.

What If Thor #1 Cover A Regular Marco Checchetto Cover

Frost Giant or Night King? I think Knight King and he will conquer the north after the wall came down. Great cover.

Spider-Gwen Ghost Spider #1 Cover C Variant Stanley Artgerm Lau Cover

I’m a miss on this cover. I’m a Artgerm fan, but this just doesn’t land for me. Others might like it though.

Spider-Gwen Ghost Spider #1 Cover B Variant Sujin Jo Marvel Battle Lines Cover

I like most of these battle lines covers, but there are so many and I don’t feel like affording them all. This one does pop for me.





Spider-Girls #1 Cover A Regular Yasmine Putri Cover

Putri is hot right now. I’m either way on this cover, but probably not going to grab this as a read either.

Read it

Whispering Dark #1

Sounds cool and I excited to read it.

Justice League Odyssey #2 Cover B Variant Terry Dodson & Rachel Dodson Cover

I wasn’t big on the 1st issue, but for some reason I want to read the 2nd.

Star Wars Adventures Tales From Vaders Castle #4 Cover C Incentive Francesco Francavilla Sketch Cover 1:10

I know this is for all ages, but I like it. I’m collecting the variant covers too.

Die Die Die #4

I’m not big on this titles, but I’m still reading it.

Burnouts #2 Cover C Variant Tony Fleecs Cover

The 1st issue was better than I expected and I’m in for the 2nd.

Zinnober #5

If you can find this it is a good read. Maybe wait for the trade if you can’t. Some of these have been heating up too.

Baron Rat One Shot

This one is $1 and great for the kids. Alterna is a great publisher and trick loves the kids.

High Heaven #2

The 1st issue was good enough I’ll grab the 2nd.




Silencer #10 Enhanced Foil Cover

Great book. One of the best DC titles out right now and the cover is kinda cool.


  • Return Of Wolverine #1 Cover Z-H 2nd Ptg Variant Steve Mcniven Cover – There is an error variant.
  • True Believers What If Kraven The Hunter Had Killed Spider-Man #1 – $1
  • True Believers What If The Silver Surfer Had Possessed The Infinity Gauntlet #1 – $1
  • Rejected One Shot Cover B 2nd Ptg – This might be hot but I’m never big on 2nd prints in general.

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.)

Justice League Vol 4 #10 Cover C Incentive Jim Lee Pencil Cover 1:25 – I was really happy to see these drop from a 1:100 ratio to a 1:25. This should make them easier to get for folks trying to collect the run. I think these go for $20. Only 1 sold today for $20 and I saw 1 listed bin for less, but others for over ratio. I’m not an aquaman fan, but I might grab a pc copy for $12-15, but I doubt it.Seems to be going for half ratio. 

Exorsisters #1 Cover D Incentive David Lafuente Variant Cover 1:25 – I don’t think I’m the target audience for this book and I don’t think there will be many of this variant so it might be a ghost. I might take a flip chance if I see it for half ratio, but I don’t see a lot of people wanting it. I’m probably wrong and it will be great and hot. – Not many sold, but it seems to be grabbing $20. 

Shuri #1 Cover F Incentive Travis Charest Variant Cover 1:50 – I’m not feeling this title or any of the covers, but it should be a low run and hard to find. 1 sold for ratio today, but I see a bin for $40 and $50. Shuri is a great character in the movie, but are people really hyped for this solo title? I think it will be hot for scarcity alone. The cover is good not great. $30 or less is probably a solid flip, but I’d feel better at $25 or under. – This is selling $30-40 which is solid. 

Marvel Zombie #1 Cover B Variant In-Hyuk Lee Cover – Great homage and picking up a little heat. I really dig this cover and hope to grab one. I think it has a small chance to heat up. It seemed to sell out quickly online earlier this week, but no recent sales over cover.Few sold for over cover, but it is going for cover now. 

Unstoppable Wasp Vol 2 #1 Cover D Incentive Yasmine Putri Variant Cover 1:50 – I don’t think many people want this book, but this cover is solid and will be hard to find. Ghost for sure. I think this one is like the Shuri book. $30 or less should be an easy flip I think. Purti is hot right now. – Selling for $130 is crazy amazing. I never would have guessed. It is a super ghost, but still. 

X-Men Black Mystique #1 Cover C Incentive J Scott Campbell Virgin Cover 1:100 – I was amazed how well the other 1:100 did so far. I don’t see how this doesn’t sit at least at ratio, but I think it goes higher as it is a classic JSC pin up. Watching that NYCC Wolverine variant sell so well shows how rabid JSC fans are. If you see it for $80 or less flip it i think. Heck it is probably safe at $100, but that is too rich for my blood. – No love for this one. Bins available for $90 and only 1 UK sale recently. 

Life Of Captain Marvel Vol 2 #4 Cover C Incentive Jen Bartel Variant Cover 1:25 – Rumored 1st app of Captain Mari-Ell. This book has a run ~under 30k so even these 1:25s aren’t going to be plentiful. Good cover and it seems to be creeping up $20-30 and the last one went for almost $50 shipped. $20 or less seems like a must grab. Might even grab at ratio.Selling around $60 is amazing. 

Source #1 Cover C Variant Glow-In-The-Dark Cover – According to Scout, this is limited to 400 copies. There is also a retailer incentive copy which I think is a 1:10. This gitd cover is avail for $25 on the Scout site and the incentive for $10 as well as an ashcan for $10. A set of the 3 covers (sans ashcan) sold today for $45 and some sales for the regular cover over $10. I’m hesitant, but I usually like scout titles. I say tread lightly as it seems even when these are sold out they are still available on their site. I hope it is a good read. I grabbed a gitd for cover from midtown and will grab a cover A from my lcs for my PC.Selling for $25 still which isn’t too shabby. 

Wrap Up

This seems to be a good week all around. Goldilocks as it were with some winners but not a wallet killer. I don’t think I have a chance at the Dekal or Hyung, but that BG #28 does it for me and the Frison is icing on the cake. I might even be able to make it thru all the reads this week. I think I got all the good stuff, but let me know if I missed anything. Appreciate Y’all reading and have a great Wednesday.
