      Aye, what Mik said.
      The books I'm enjoying the most these days are creator owned titles from Image.
      Although Uncanny X-Force is in my top 5 each month.

      Thanks Mik and FP...I won't pick up books anymore that aren't part of the 616 main continuity...I just wanted to be sure about getting this. Now I'm excited!

      Well I'll let you know on the day it comes out if it's an actual appearance or just the cover.
      I can use my timezone to our advantage for that.

      I can teach you a thing or two about that! (In about 15 mins, I'm heading off to a Dark Knight Rises screening...)
      Meanwhile, I'll just sit here, being eaten by a cat.

      Just in case anyone hasn't seen November's solicits:

      WOLVERINE AND X-MEN #18 original solicitation has been updated to reflect a new artist, new story, and a new on-sale date of 10/10 (from 10/17). Please note that the FOC for this book has been moved up from 9/24 to 9/17. Below is the updated solicit:

      • Written by Jason Aaron
      • Penciled by Jorge Molina
      • Cover by ED MCGUINNESS
      • * AVX TIE-IN by the writer of AVX #12.
      • * As the world burns, the Jean Grey School tries to continue on, but that's easier said than done.
      • * One student ends up at the barrel of a gun.
      • 32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99
      Meaning that #19 will now feature the cover with Sasquatch & Puck on, not #18.

      The solicit for #20 also spoils that it's Storm who becomes the new teacher so we won't be seeing Walt & Eugene in the title permenantly.

      Can anyone attending the Canada Fan Expo confirm this news at Bleedingcool.com at the bottom of this article
      http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/08/...marvel-events/

      "And Alpha Flight characters will join Wolverine And The X-Men from issue 19."

      I thought they were just guest stars. Sounds like they are joining book permanently.

      That's been misreported.

      The actual quote was:-
      If you're a fan of Alpha Flight, a few characters will be showing up in Wolverine and the X-Men #19, says Lowe.

      Well, one piece of info seems to have been taken from editor-in-chief Alex Alonso, and the other from Lowe. Personally, I hope that they DOnT permanently join. To me, that would just mean breaking up the Alpha Flight team further.

      Guess that means Puck won since he is now a member of X-Force? So could Puck be appearing in TWO books as a regular character?

      It was revealed it the next month's solicits that Storm is hired as the new teacher.
      but we may well see him floating about occasionally as they're on the same team.
