What covers are on the front cover of X-Men #138?

Just for fun ... (and actually, also for the X-Men Index TPB... :wink: )

Which 20 X-Men covers are reproduced in the background of X-Men #138?

From left to right, top to bottom, I spy:

ROW 1
X-Men #99
X-Men #127
X-Men #17
X-Men #18

ROW 2
X-Men #28
X-Men #134
unknown (almost completely blocked behind Cyclops, only a tiny bit visible next to his face - slanted logo, so #50-137)
X-Men #108

ROW 3
X-Men #42
X-Men #101
X-Men #119
X-Men #94

ROW 4
X-Men #19
X-Men #136
X-Men #1
X-Men #39

ROW 5
X-Men #18 (again!)
X-Men #99 (again!)
X-Men #127 (again!)
either X-Men #16 or #21 (Angel flying above logo, completely blank background, no black in logo shadows, block-lettered "MARVEL" in corner box, black "the")

What do you guys think? Can you ID any of the books I missed? Am I way off-base on the others?

Thanks -- and have fun!

Chris, I guess you haven't been helping edit the PDFs for the Index TPB, have you. ;)
