    Check any of the other Marvel Premiere Classics series, the 2 layered colour version is always the variant.

    Yes, I've posted that I've been collecting all of them - so this will be mine either way.
    That said, I really can't predict whether they'll include the bonus material, but knowing them I'm leaning towards 'yes' - but I wouldn't be surprised if it was tacked on to the end.

    But I can confirm what Phil posted - the 2 layered colour version is always the variant. And really annoying when the three you had to buy over Amazon turned out not to be the variant!

    A little research later:
    The Wikipedia page for Marvel Premier Classics says it'll reprint Uncanny X-Men, not Classic X-Men, so I'm not going to hold my breath for the bonus material.

    Wikipedia's Wikipedia though... but yeah, I thought it was unlikely, but hey...

    True that, but it's been fairly accurate so far at this GN series.
    The series does seem to want to give us as much as possible though. There've been little bonuses in the past.

    Oh, yes, I forgot to tell you: The spice exists on only one planet in the known universe.

    Also, and slightly more relevant to this thread, I can come close to guaranteeing that the special features for this hardcover will be Marvel Universe Handbook entries; one on Alpha as a whole, probably one or two on the original original six - the Hudsons, but probably not everybody.

    Add up the pages from the issues stated, subtract from the solicited page count, what do you get?
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    But seriously folks, the page count won't help, it'll only tell us whether there are more pages than the original print - not what's on them.

    I've been saying that there'll be OHOTMU pages. That's based on the fact that between #s 28 and 52, all of them had OHOTMU pages in the back. (Which would confuse the page count idea.)
    (I haven't gone and looked at them all, but I noticed they were in there on reading, and it seems to start at #28.)
    #54 does not.

    So, I'm going to take back my 'guarantee' that they'll be in there. I will state with absolute certainty that AF's OHOTMU pages might or might not be in there.

    Now that my attention's been drawn back to this thread, more on the 'Marvel Premiere Classics' special features issue:

    MPC #52 was the last of mine that had OHOTMU pages as features, and I'm now up to #58.
    The Alpha Flight one will be #66 (two gn's before Dr. Strange's first, btw!)

    What they have been doing lately is reprinting 'extra pages' in the back - pages that were meant to align the page count properly in previous trade printings, so that two-page spreads would still be two-page spreads (I noticed with one of them that they were probably meant to replace double-pages). When they exist, of course.
    That doesn't quite apply to the Classic X-Men pages, but it's the closest I've got.

    The advance solicitation date of this for May makes a lot more sense now!
    4th May shipping, so perhaps Vol 4 #0.1 the same week or the following week!

    According to Diamond the HC has been pushed back to 8th June which is the same date as Volume 4 #1 rather than #0.1

    Which is my 15th year anniversary. I wonder if my wife will appreciate a copy of Alpha Flight #1 for her anniversary gift?
