I went to Toronto again this last weekend and one of the things I wanted to do was stop in at Silver Snail, a well known store in the city. The owner is the one that got the rights to Captain Canuck and is funding the web series. Plus, the movie I went up to see had a contest for the movie posters where you drop off a ticket stub and you had a chance to win. Naturally I forgot the stub. :/ Anyhow, the new Serenity comic was out and I wanted to get that, but they didn't have that either! So the woman I was staying with told me she had checked with her local comic shop and knew they had a few copies, so we stopped there on the way home. But while I was there I couldn't resist browsing and got 3 more, plus a book.
Serenity, Leaves on the Wind Wolverine (he's gone rogue or something) Loki, but I got that for a friend Sandman Nocturnals All of these were the first.
The book: X23. She leaves the school and Gambit joins her on the way.

And X23 is Laura, a clone of Wolverine that was raised from infancy to be an assasin. She was till she took off as a teenager after one job went sour and she went to live with some Aunts, but that didn't last long and she was living on the streets until the X-Men found her. (All of this was in a brief history at the back of the book.) Cyclops put her on some team and she ended up having to kill someone and feeling like they were just using her too she leaves for a bit. That's what this book was about.
Well, partial clone I guess. The story goes they got a sample of his DNA but it was damaged so one particular scientist had to do hand wavy science and the only "clone" that was viable was the one she made a female even though they wanted only males. I think there were issues with the Y chromosome or something so she blah blah spliced in her X chromosome to make the sample they had whole. So, to be dicks, the people that wanted the clone made that scientist carry the child and hand her over when she was born and she was still working there while they did all the awful things to X23 to take away her empathy.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
