    Some good news! The Second printing of The Uncanny X-Men: An Origin Story came out recently, on 4/23/14 to be exact, and there are some major changes. All of the art is new, including the full-page illustration of Weapon Alpha. There's also a 2nd illustration of Mac that wasn't in the 1st edition at all: a tiny image of Weapon Alpha and Wolverine shown smashing into a tree on the preceding page. It's all new art by Pat Olliffee, who did the cover art for the 1st edition (not the dustjacket cover, the actual cover) and Hi-Fi Design.

    Slightly confused by this. Is the page from the first printing re-drawn?

    Yes the page with Weapon Alpha from the first printing has been re-drawn by a new artist. Once I have the scanner working you'll see. The entire book has been redrawn in fact.
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?
