Yea!

1248 seems a bit high for 27 regular issues (including 29), 2 double issues, and 5 X-Men issues.  That's just about 800 including covers.

Just saw the expanded credits.  Ditko, Mantlo, Stern, Buscema, Wilson, DeFalco, Mignola.  It looks like the MTIO issues, Machine Man, and Hulk issues will be in there too.

The link isn't working, but it's certainly welcome news!

Chris Claremont is a listed author, so one would assume the X-men issues are included. Roger Stern and Tom Defalco are also listed as authors, along with Sal Buscema and Steve Ditko, Ron Wilson and Mike Mignola as artists.

That's welcome news! With 1248 pages, they must be going several issues into the Mantlo run. Even with various guest appearances included, there would still be space left after JB's run is done. I expect X-Men/Alpha Flight may be included as well, since it came out right as JB's run ended. Paul Smith isn't mentioned in the credits but they may not be complete. Hopefully a generous number of extras will be included, maybe even letter pages!

Sal Buscema, Steve Ditko, Ron Wilson and Mike Mignola are the only other credited artists. Was also hoping for that X-Men/Alpha Flight team up.

-C!

Hulk annual with Sasquatch? Team-up annual? ROM two-parter? All were during JB's run with JB script for the former and covers for the latter

Am so excited about this - as you can probably tell - and already wondering what they will use for the cover. AF1 would be the obvious choice but I'm hoping they plump for the in house ad for AF12. Love that image (and the the subsequent one did later in the run ahead of Heather becoming leader).

Whilst I love extras, the purist in me just wants JB material. They all pose a problem, in the case of the 2-in-1 two-parter as to whether they are printed chronologically when they were published (i.e. before AF1) or when they are set (i.e. between AF1 and AF2).
