The Wednesday One 4/25/18

Welcome to the night before Wednesday One! 4/25/18

I’m not liking any spec this week and there is no “One.” I am all over some of the cool covers though and always keen on a good read. I went to my friend’s wedding this week so I am trying to play catch up. Heck, I might even sleep in this week.



Exiles Vol 5 #2 Cover C Incentive Javier Rodriguez Variant Cover 1:10 

Selling for a little over cover mostly. I think this one has hope as it is reported that Peggy Carter shows up as Cap in #3 so possible cameo in #2. But even if she doesn’t, #2 might be considered 1st full Valkyrie(?). I think we are still waiting for the tiny cartoon Wolverine to show up(?). I didn’t get a chance to read #1 (shame on me, but I was too busy) so I could be way off on this book. If some of the spec rumors are true it should be a grab for cover or right over, maybe it hits $10-15.

Rick And Morty #37 Cover B Variant Mike Vasquez Cover 

I don’t know about R&M, but I hear this is a long hold. Fun homage.

Sonic The Hedgehog Vol 3 #4 Cover D Incentive Tyson Hesse Variant Cover 

I still don’t dig on these, but I know there is money in them. I only see 1 sale for $25 and 1 more for sale at that price. Pay half ratio or less is my guess.

Hunt For Wolverine #1 Cover F Incentive Mike Deodato Jr Variant Cover 1:50 

I don’t like the cover or the spec, but there may still be a flip. They are going for ~$20 which is less than half ratio. Be safe $10 or less buy-in or just avoid,I probably will.

Cool Covers

 Batgirl Vol 5 #22 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover

Possibly my most favorite Middleton ever.

Justice League Of America Vol 5 #29 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover 

The better of the 2x Mattina covers. I like how he is doing the color tones.

Suicide Squad Vol 4 #40 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover

Mattina taking Harley ques from Frank Cho.

Trinity Vol 2 #22 Cover B Variant Bill Sienkiewicz Cover 

A great Sienkiewicz. Screams of freedom.

Wonder Woman Vol 5 #45 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover 

Love a battle-worn WW. This is a great Frison for the collection.

Avengers Vol 6 #690 Cover A Regular Mark Brooks Cover  

Edit. I got the wrong cover. This is still really good.

 Redneck #12 Cover B Variant Gabrial Hernandez Walta April Fools Cover

This cover is so great. It really does a great job of satire and the CGR. Def a grab for the PC. Cates is great.

Avengers Vol 6 #690 Cover C Variant Inhyuk Lee Cover 

Lee is hot as ever right now and this is another great cover.

 Hunt For Wolverine #1 Cover B Variant Marco Checchetto Young Guns Cover

Checchetto is hot right now also. 3x covers making the cool cover list and with good reason.

Mighty Thor Vol 2 #706 Cover C Variant Marco Checchetto Young Guns Cover 

Love this cover. The end of the story iirc. 705 was great I can’t wait for this one.

Old Man Hawkeye #4 

Chechetto is on top of his game.

Star Wars Doctor Aphra #19 Cover A Regular Ashley Witter Cover 

I’m am falling in love with Witter’s work.

Skip it

I didn’t see anything I really wanted to avoid.

Read it

 Detective Comics Vol 2 #979 Cover B Variant Rafael Albuquerque Cover

Tec is solid. Slowly creeping toward 1000.

 Flash Vol 5 #45 Cover B Variant David Finch & Danny Miki Cover

Good consistent read.

X-Files Case Files Florida Man #1 Cover B Variant JJ Lendl Cover 

I usually avoid the X-Files, but they got me with Florida Man. I think that is hilarious.

Kill Or Be Killed #18 

Possibly the best book being written right now. If you aren’t reading it grab the 1st trade and jump in.

 All-New Wolverine #34

I think they are doing a good job with ANW. I know it is more general audience driven, but it is good.

 Doctor Strange Damnation #4 Cover B Variant Greg Smallwood Connecting Cover

Damnation has been great. I am even digging the tie-ins.

 Moon Knight Vol 8 #194

I like this run so far. I know a lot don’t like this iteration.

Thanos Vol 2 Annual #1 Cover B Variant Mike Deodato Jr Cover  

The end of a fantastic run. Can’t wait to read it.

 Black [AF] Widows & Orphans #1

Black was optioned a bit ago. It is a cool concept.

Reactor #3 Cover A Regular Dylan Burnett Cover 

Cates goodness.

 Deep Roots #1 Cover A Regular Dani Strips Cover

I usually give new Vault comics a shot.

Solar Flare Season 2 #6 

I like this original story.

 Doctor Strange Vol 4 #389

Cates and damnation tie-in.

Venom Vol 3 #165 Cover A Regular Ryan Stegman Cover 

Venom is hot and I heard rumblings of a new character or something. I ‘ll flip thru it at my LCS


  • True Believers Carol Danvers #1 – $1
  • True Believers Infinity War #1 – $1
  • Thanos Vol 2 #13,#14,#17,#18 reprints various
  • Shadowman Vol 5 #2 Cover F Incentive Ben Templesmith Shadowman Icon Variant Cover – high ratio Valiant
  • X-O Manowar Vol 4 #14 Cover E Incentive Felipe Massafera X-O Manowar Icon Variant Cover – high ratio valiant
  • Marvel Rising #0 – Free

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.)

Comic Title –  Prediction. Reality.

Action Comics Vol 2 #1000 Cover K Variant Jim Lee Tour Cover – No presales, but one listed for $50. I think this might have a less than 3k print run. I only saw them for sale in 2 places so it might be a store style variant. – $75-100 

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 #799 Cover C Alex Ross Virgin 1:100 – Presales $50-90. I think close to half ratio is a good price for a potential flip. –  $65-70 steady.  

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (BOOM Studios) #26 Cover C Incentive Carlos Villa Virgin Variant Cover 1:25 – Presales $50+, a good grab at or below ratio. – As high as $50, but few sold. 

Cable Vol 3 #156 Cover B Incentive Ariel Olivetti Variant Cover 1:25 – Maybe a flip at $10 or less – $35-40 for the most part. 

Weapon H #2 Cover C Incentive Skan Variant Cover – No spec given – These seem to be mostly $20 

Wrap Up

I’m hoe hum about this week. That’s okay though as not every week is packed with amazement. I’m really not feeling any spec and though there are great covers and reads I’m just not feeling this week. I’m sure that will change when I go to the LCS though. What are Y’all scoping out this week? Did I miss any spec? Let me know what Y’all think and as always thanks for reading.
