    What happened to issue 18? Where was it moved to? Where did you get the info on the contents anyway? Other sites still list it as having 13, 16, and 18.

      Hey Dan. I doubt any other sites are even aware there have been changes to this book since solicitation. The information regarding the contents is valid and came from a very reliable and trustworthy source. However, I’m not sure what happened to #18 or why it was removed.

      Hey Dan, thanks. There are a couple dates out there but I’m going to leave things as “TBD” for now on this one. I don’t believe anyone really knows the actual date this will hit. Might be wrong but I think we’ll know more solid info soon.

    Hey so Ive really been wondering this, my understanding is that they are releasing this with 13, 16, and 18, and the Ultimate Collections will not have them in it so you need this, why is that???
