New items for this week 9/30/09

I won’t usually be covering upcoming items because it just clutters things, but this week I will make an exception.  Two items are coming out that are very nifty (LGT Marvel solicits):

OFFICIAL HANDBOOK OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE A TO Z VOL. 10 PREMIERE HC

and

WOLVERINE: WEAPON X FILES

You can see Sasquatch on the cover of the OHOTMU book, and I’m looking forward to his entry as well as some other Alpha Flight related stuff.

But, the real gem is that Wolverine book. Why is it such a big deal? Well, the missing 3rd volume of the Wolverine Encyclopedia from 1996 is finally being published! Alpha Flight had entries in volumes 1 and 2, but, for a reason unknown to me, Marvel never published the third volume, abruptly ending the series and stopping somewhere in the R’s in the A-Z format. Sasquatch, Shaman and Snowbird are sure to have entries. Note that the info is from 1996, so the satisfaction of finally seeing the unpublished volume will exceed the educational value of the information in the entries.

EDIT 10/16/09: See comments below.  No volume 3.  The solicts were wrong.

    The third volume isn’t included in the trade, merely the Weapon X Files one shot and the Beast files from the old Marvel Vision catalogue.

    Thanks Phil! Obviously I didn’t get it yet, it’s on order. That’s odd, the solicit said it would have the third volume and it was confirmed on comixfan.com . Hmm. Very odd.

    SNAP. Got it tonight and sadly, no vol 3 for me. The little snapshot of James and Heather appears 6 times though, that’s at least something for me.
