    Default Wild Child in X-Men: Age of Apocalypse Prelude TP

    This will get lost in the #0.1 release hubbub but today Marvel published a bookend to the four volume X-Men: The Complete Age of Apocalypse Epic series.

    X-Men Age of Apocalypse Prelude contains reprints of various issues that lead into the Age of Apocalypse as well as a reprint of one of the X-Men ashcans from the mid-1990s. These tiny promotional books were either sold or given away as freebies but now are rather hard to find. The ashcan for AoA contained a cryptic description of the AoA storyline and included, among other covers, black and white cover art to Astonishing X-Men #1 featuring AoA Wild Child.



    For collectors who can't find an original ashcan, this TPB is very cool, especially because the ashcan is printed in its entirety much larger - in full comic size and on high quality paper.

    I suggest a long box... that ashcan fills with water; it's getting your comics all rusty.

    Oh, and for the CD, that was the original Astonishing X-Men #1, the four-issue Age Of Apocalypse one, not the Joss Whedon one.

    Yes, Astonishing X-Men replaced Uncanny X-Men for the four issues 1995 when AoA took over the X-books. Click on the thumbnailed image to see a list of titles and their AoA counterparts.

    And not the other Astonishing X-men, in between the two, either...
