      Nice! Also seeing the:

      X-MEN: AGE OF APOCALYPSE OMNIBUS COMPANION HC (On-Sale 4/2/14)

      Big wait for April 2014, but it will be worth it. Look for AoA versions of Alpha Flight in that huge huge book!

      AoA version of Alpha Flight? or you mean members of Alpha Flight? (Box, Wild Child, Purple Girl, etc.)

      Are you sure about that AoA Puck appearance in issue #1 of the 2005 series? I was never convinced that was him. I dimly recall you might have gotten some kind of confirmation from a creator, but can't place it.

      Oh, I might have mentioned it before. Do we know for sure it's him or is it just a guess?

      And one more issue: ALL-NEW X-MEN #22.NOW

      X-Men 50th Anniversary Polybagged Poster Variant by Various

      That's a composite of all the anniversary covers, so look for Wild Child on that issue!

      Oh wait this came out!

      Puck's in it, drinking beer, and we get more cursing at the end. The cursing never stops.

      Okay, Northstar doesn't appear to be in Amazing X-Men #3 (I haven't got mine so can't corroborate)

      This book was worth the wait. It's just awesome. Wild Child is on the dust jacket, but only on the back cover, in the Mark Brooks two-page splash reprinted in 1/2 size. Strongly recommended.

      As I've reached this issue in the Alphanex (I'm on an AoA kick at the moment) I reached out to Chris Bachalo on twitter to double check:
