    Four issues for $35??? They are a heck of a lot of fun and some of the very few X-Men comics I still have, but that's a ton of money.

    This story is a classic. It has been reprinted many times over the years. It's still one of the best Alpha (and X-Men) stories ever. I'm glad to see it being reprinted in a beautiful new hardcover edition, but $34.95 is a little out of my price range at this time.

    This was printed in paperback many years ago, out of print not, and quite hard to find nowadays. I am thrilled this is now reprinted in HC, and I'll definitely pick up a copy. I love that Art Adams cover!

    Love,

    I have the original series, but never picked up the paperback edition. This one is definately going on my order.

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    I loaned my paperback out last night. I'll see about the HC; that'd be good to have, and my PB is in loved condition...

    Just to create a feedback loop, here's the follow-up (from when I bought the GN), which also links back to here.

    - Le Messor
    "I was thinking about the new Star Trek movie, how if they've changed so much of reality, would 'Gabriel Bell' still have stopped the riots, for example? Would there have been a Roswell crash? Then I figured out that the split happened after that, and the time travellers from 'our' version would still have been there, even if their adventures didn't happen in the new timeline... that's when I got the headache."
