v18 - some minor text changes

I don't have the magazine raw files on my laptop, but I'm pretty sure there's some changes in the released version of v18 - a few pages at the end of Fight 107, including some new art / pages. Nothing critical that I could see. I think I saw one or two minor changes to the art, but the above is the ...
