    Default A Couple of Alpha Finds. ish.

    Last week, there was a used books sale, and I picked up a bunch of comics.

    I haven't finished reading them yet, but I've found a couple of Alpha references that I don't think are in the 'appearances' list... but neither is an appearance.

    Aurora kinda appears in X-Factor #136. The issue is on our appearances list, but only for Wildchild.
    Tiny spoiler: Well, Mystique appears, but she appears to be Aurora.

    In The Uncanny X-Men #323, Mac and Heather Hudson are mentioned by name - Charles has called them down to examine Wolverine (which happens in Wolverine #s 91 and 92, which are listed here.)
    Maybe I should check if this one is on our appearances list or not before posting?
    Nah, too lazy.

    More later?

Man, those ducks really take off! Also, Baby Duck Hat is good for parties."

    I agree. With Jack Handey, that is.

    I am also very excited to be moving one block away from the "used book store/comic book store" that I frequented weekly from age 17 to 30. Haven't been there in a decade (it moved, and so did I); very exciting news!

    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'll add the first one, but the 2nd is just a reference rather than an appearance so wouldn't count as such, but is a nice nod. The late 90's were quite nice for all being in synch timewise. unlike today's titles...
