      There's another Alpha Flight related item that I'll be looking in the Sep 2013 solicits, the:

      YOUNG MARVEL: LITTLE X-MEN, LITTLE AVENGERS, BIG TROUBLE TPB
      ......Collecting A-BABIES VS. X-BABIES #1, WOLVERINE ( 1988 ) #102.5, PINT-SIZED X-BABIES: MURDERAMA and X-BABIES REBORN.


      That Wolverine 102.5 issue is damn hard to find and it would be nice to get it in TPB form. Oh, Alpha Flight's in that issue. Also in the ABvXB#1.

      Hope they use Puck more in UXF. Not sure focusing on Bishop will help in the long run.

      Yeah, but the title's not called Puck & X-Force so we can't expect him to dominate the book.
      He's had as much page-time as Storm, Spiral & Cluster so I'm fairly happy with how he's been treated so far.
      He's had mentions in the last two months worth of solicits, albeit light-hearted ones.

      Sounds amusing, and I have considered looking for that Wolvie issue.

      I never knew there was a Wolverine 102.5 till now. Sounds like a FM radio station. Which Alphans are in that issue?

      It's the team, I think... there was a trading card series that had a comic printed on the back. This issue reprints that comic. ~ Le Messor "Wolverine 102.5, playing all the classics! Snikt, Bub!"

      It has WarWolves impersonating Guardian & Sasquatch.
    1. Le Messor's Avatar
      Le Messor -
      Just those two? And, I knew WarWolves were involved.
      Wait... don't they impersonate people by ripping their skins off and wearing them?

      Somehow I totally missed that one.

      JUL130687 UNCANNY X-FORCE #11 X-MEN 50TH ANNIV LAROCCA VAR PI 11-Sep-13
      So I imagine it'll be the (original) X-Treme team on the cover for this Variant.

      And as I guessed; Uncanny X-Force #11 Variant:

      With the above, previously advertised cover moving to #12, the Spiral standalone issue with art by Adrian Alphona.

      Right, apparently A+X #12 (& a few other books) didn't make it to the UK this week, so I'll be relying on you folk to tell me how much Pink Pearl is in it!
      Just remember spoilers!

      Yup, Pink Pearl in a single panel cameo, in a wrestling ring, of course.
