    Thanks for the welcome! Next time I am in Moncton I will have to take a look!

    Work has taken me to Victoria and I checked out Comic Strip (3 comic book shops within in a 30 second walk) on Johnson Street and I didn't come up with a Chaos War... but did find a signed copy of Alpha Flight #128, No Future Part 1 of 3, now I need to find parts 2 and 3.

    I'm so tired, I read that as 'singed copy', and thought 'I guess a slightly-burned copy would be a little cheaper'.
    Who singed signed it?

    ... wait...
    3 comic shops within a 30-second walk in Victoria?
    Why didn't you tell me that in April?

    I picked up an odd item tonight at the LCS. From 1991, it's an unopened packet of cards, "Infinity Gauntlet Keepsake Collection". The text on the packet says what it is. For those of you scratching your heads, Alpha Flight appears on the cover of Infinity Gauntlet #2:

    This is not the actual item I got but it's a better image than I could make on my camera. The larger cards are B/W and include trade dress, but the smaller cards are in full color without the trade dress. Very neato and hard to find.

    Congrats, Rob!

    Weren't they on more covers than that one? So, are they on more than the one card?
    (It takes ages for pics to embiggen for me, so I don't want to try. Sorry.)

    Just issue #2 for the Infinity Gauntlet series. The package contains both 6 larger b/w cards and a single uncut sheet of stock with six color card images. So they are on more than one card. Two.

    I get confused with all the Infinity Gauntlet War thingies out there. Aren't they on a couple of ... War covers?

    Well, strangely enough both pages were inked by Mark Farmer but drawn by different pencillers...

    That's a cool coincidence (?)... but I don't know the creative teams of all the guest appearances well enough for it to answer my question.

    So, this weekend I've been at 'London Super Comic Con' which is probably the biggest con this side of the pond, where I picked up the following original pages from Mark Farmer & Ed McGuinness respectively:

    Also in attendance at the con was Simone Bianchi who was the artist on Loeb's contraversial Wolverine runs. He operates a system whereby anyone who purchases anything from his table during the day gets a lottery ticket to be entered into a draw for a free sketch at the end of the day. I purchased a Wolverine print for my friend during the day and I was given what turned out to be 1 of 3 winning tickets!
    i got Simone to draw Wild Child as he designed the new look:
