    Did Marvel really use a "Yaaaas, Queen!" to describe one of their comic?!?

    The
    following
    could
    be
    a
    spoiler
    for an alternate future:


    Could this mean we may see how the alternate future Alpha Flight died?


    Given his talk of 'lots of Puck', I'm not assuming they did die! (Not all, anyway.)

    I'm actually tempted to pick this up, but in the past every time I went to read the original Old Man Logan, it was by Mark Millar.

    In the original OML Wolverine is pretty much the only hero left alive.
    So it's a mild spoiler, for a story from 2008 :P

    I'm assuming the lots of Puck is definitely present and maybe (possible) future.

    I thought so, but I also thought this was a post-Secret Wars alternate reality to that alternate reality, so he might not be in this version.

    3,000 copies of a comic? Am I reading that wrong?

    There must be some huge comic shops in the States if any of them can get 500 copies of the same issue, let alone 3,000. My stores have maybe 20 each.
    Is it 3,000 of the same issue, or are we talking 3,000 copies of Marvel's combined output for any given month?

    Sorry, this is blowing my mind.

    3000 of the same, exclusively covered, issue.

    It's usually chains that take it on.

    Oh, right, one chain buys it and distributes it among their stores?
    The way I was reading the rule, I didn't think that was allowable.
