    Default Technical cover appearance, old news

    Have we got a listing for this?

    Puck has a cover appearance in November, 1986, on:
    pretty much everything.

    Most of the Marvel comics for that month had him just below the bar code.
    The just-launched New Universe and some mini-serieses and magazines are among the exceptions.

    My personal view(rather than that of site admin)'s always been that it's not new artwork so technically it's the same appearance as Alpha Flight #40 (The Direct Market version anyway, the newsstand version has the lowered barcode blocking him). It's why I personally don't consider things like Generation Hope #1 an appearance. Maybe that's just cos I'm poor though. If i were rich I'd snap them all up.

    Professionally I'm all for including them if people want.

    Getting this one the other week is what prompted my post.

    Compromise?
