Came across this today.
His next appointment is going to be at ECCC for a Slott signature and then wherever Vallejo is going to be after that for an additional signature...

Thank you everyone.

This book has me puzzled.
There is so little data about it on the Internet.

GCD states that this book was a "Mail-away comic somehow connected with the Fleer trading cards produced for Marvel. The cover was used as art for the Fleer Ultra X-Men set and an interior pin-up was used for the Marvel Masterpiece 1996 set. Numbering indicates that this story takes place between Wolverine (Marvel, 1988 series) #102 and 103." and Dan Slott talks about it on this forum thread where he explains the mystery of this book.

"Why the strange numbering? Because continuity-wise the "story" runs between WOLVERINE #102 and #103. 'Duh.

Why is the darn thing such a strange read? Well, let me tell you...

Because each page of WOLVERINE #102.5 is actually 9 trading cards.
Yes, you read that right. Instead of putting stats on the back of the FLEER WOLVERINE '96 card set, each sheet of 9 cards linked together to form a single comic book page-- not a 9 panel comic book page-- a normal comic book page.

FLEER had two stipulations: that every card feature the majority of at least one figure-- and to put as many characters as possible into the 11 page story. It was kinda tricky. But given the weird parameters of the assignment, I was happy with the way it turned out. And, given the bizarre rules, I think Mark Buckingham did an excellent job! (Though part of me wishes that they would've let me write it as eleven 9 panel grids. The flow would've been SO much better!)

The twelfth page was a 1 page story-- it WAS a 9 panel grid-- and the only way you could get it was if you collected all 9 of the hard-to-find chase cards. That was a 9 panel gag about Baby Wolvie from the X-Babies-- and it was drawn by Mike Wieringo. One of the rare times we got to work together. It was a lovely page.

Hope that solves everything for you.

Thank you very much.

I had never heard of it before (maybe because it wasn't on my radar), but now in looking it up on Google it seems to be an in demand book for Wolverine and Deadpool collectors.
