    Awesome. Mine comes in 2 weeks. Phil, which cover are you getting, the variant or the regular cover?
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    I'm not Phil, but I thought I'd mention I'm getting the variant... but I get all the MPC variants.

    I ordered mine online to save 35% so I've gotta wait 4 weeks, so I still don't know if it's got the Classic pages in or not.
    I've ordered the MPC Variant.
    I'll possibly pick up the standard in a few years when it's cheaper.

    Good, but trust me - don't go the other way around. I've still got one of the standards and I can't find the variant anywhere.

    Yeah, all of mine are the DM edition apart from 2. I think the spine looks better on a shelf too.

    My local LCS ha sent me an email telling me my copy's in! Yay!
    I may have to wait a month before I can pick it up, though. I might be able to get it after church tomorrow, but as I'm leaving the country the day after...

    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!

    Hope so. I haven't brought it up because it'll be unpossible for me to get a chance to meet anybody, but I'm hoping to see for the first time:
    San Francisco (the non-airport portion)
    The Grand Canyon
    Vasquez Rocks

    I'll also go to my grandparents' house (remind me to wear a red hood and not talk to any wolves).

    I'll obviously (probably) not be doing much posting for the next month.

    Is this guarantee rock solid? For those of you who have this in your hands already, are there Handbook entries?

    I took it back after that post. Roughly twenty in a row (#s 28-52) had them, but they stopped shortly after I put that up there - in fact, I'd come closer to guaranteeing (now) there won't be any.

    My copy turned up today! So much for 4-6 weeks delivery window!

    The extra is the X-Men & Alpha Flight cover & interview from Marvel Age #32 and the Cockrum cover of the 1998 reprint
    No introduction, but to be fair there's a lot of pages for your money when you consider there are some MPC's with only 4 issues in.

    It's the standard issues, rather than the Classic additions.

    It's all in chronological order:
    UXM 109, 120-121, 139-140
    X-Men/Alpha Flight(Raab/Cassaday) 1-2
    X-Men & Alpha Flight (Claremont/Smith) 1-2

    I picked my copy up yesterday while up the city. Forbidden Planet may be devoid of atmosphere, but they do have a great selection. Was tempted to pick up vol 2 of the Classics, but my LCS has reserved me a copy.

    Congrats, Del!
    It is a good HC - and I like that the order is chronological, not publishing order (ie: X-Men / Alpha v2 is before v1).

    Forbidden Planet has no atmosphere? I thought it did, but it's been a loooong time since I've been there.
