      So, it's just the variant cover that's been cancelled, not the whole series?

      ... I misread for a moment there...

      Oh what an unfortunate cover. I absolutely loathe that image. I may intentionally keep a hole in my otherwise completist collection to mourn the loss of the final iota of dignity from female comic readers.

      It's a variant. You should be able to get a different cover for the same issue.

      True. But, i am not sure that stops Rob's loathing of that particular image, now that it has already been seen and with the knowledge that it is (or will be) out there...

      On a side note, LM, I worked my first shift last night with "the new guy", who happens to be from Australia. I asked him if he knew my friend Mik from Australia, and he just stared at me blankly. Personally, i am SHOCKED that your reputation does not precede you!

      Oh, and in an open letter to the government and people of Australia: "You can stop worrying, call off the manhunt, we have found Tim; he is alive and well in Canada. Please let us know how much postage to put on him, and we will ship him back promptly."

      I doubt that was a blank look... he was probably terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

      Yet you're fine to always point out Rogue's boobs or Dazzler's butt?

      Yeah Rob, pointing is not polite! Mind you, in the two cases mentioned, totally understandable impoliteness...
