Hello. It's been about 10 years since I've read comics, but I was intrigued enough by the idea behind an Ultimate universe to try it out again. I ordered the USM Vol. 1 TPB and enjoyed it immensely. However, after viewing some threads here, particularly the chronology thread, I noticed that there are some "rare" Wizard special issues numbered 1/2 for both Spidey and X-Men. Are these the only 1/2 issues? And if so, were they ever reprinted? The "Order Hardcover and TPB here" thread makes no mention of either of those issues being included in anything. However, I've found one mention of the Hardcover Vol 3 of USM including the 1/2 issue. I'm sort of a completist (one reason I stopped collecting comics before...it just got too big), and I'd like to get these issues, especially if they were included in any paperback TPB's. Thanks for any help you guys can provide!
