Marvel news release: Because YOU demanded it: Exploding out of FEAR ITSELF with an all-new series is the ORIGINAL Alpha Flight by the superstar creative team of writers Greg Pak & Fred Van Lente and artist Dale Eaglesham–with covers by the incomparable Phil Jimenez!
Get in on the ground floor of this highly anticipated maxi-series with this standalone adventure by artist X: Who are Guardian, Vindicator, Sasquatch, Snowbird, Shaman, Northstar, Aurora, and Marrina? How did they become their nation’s most beloved heroes? And are they strong enough to withstand their greatest challenge yet? DO YOU FEAR…YOUR COUNTRY TURNING ON YOU?
Greg Pak is leaving the successful Incredible Hulks series as we have shared previously for Canada’s Greatest heroes Alpha Flight. Many years ago Alpha Flight was a decent series and the later issues became something you would only read if there was nothing else to read, but now with this team of writers and artist I have great expectations. Looks like they start off with a Fear Itself tie-in and go from there with “their greatest challenge yet”. What that is and what direction the group is going will cost you 3 bucks on May the 18th at you local comic shop. Check this out and stay tuned comic faithful for more. 🙂 Walt
