    Nice detective work!

    It could have done.
    Until 2011 the UK received comics on Thursday and the rest of Europe Friday.

    Today it'd cost me Euros...

    Interesting. The team pictured was before the Lobdell era.

    Remember, Lobdell first wrote the book from circa #102 through...109(?), followed by Furman. The 56 page book probably covered the end of the former's run and the beginning of the latter's...

    ...Though, now that I looked at the cover again after I posted, I see that you're right...the picture looks like from the late Byrne era team.

    Yeah - that's what I meant. Mostly originals, gold Aurora, Shaman's still green.

    ... Actually, it's got gold Aurora (Au Au?) and Guardian, so that makes no sense... unless it's a certain storyline around #s 25-27.
    (edit: Not with Sasquatch there, it doesn't. And he's orange, and Snowbird's there, too.)

    I'd imagine it has the First Flight special in it.

    Good point - that is the Furman period.

    The costuming's still off, though; Mac didn't wear the Maple Leaf in that one, and I don't remember Au Aurora in the Furman period (am I misremembering? It's possible).
