Particularly strong comics are issues 92, 95, 96, 99, and 100.

Fabian Nicieza proves himself to be a master storyteller. Mac's struggles between his human brain and his computer systems, Lil's cancer scare, a ne wline-up and support teams; everything is meant to grab you emotionally. Unfortunately, Michael Bair must be the worst artist ever hired by marvel, and his atrocious work brings down all of the scores for this group of ten issues.
Fabian brought passion and life to Alpha.
Bair just made me want to throw up.


All in all, on a scale of 300, these ten issues scored 238.
This is an average of 23.8/30 for each of these ten comics.
Percentage score is 79.3%.
Letter grade for these ten comics = C+

I've just read through all your reviews of Alpha Flight #1-100, and it's nice to see them.

I think we agree on most things, but I liked Jim Lee's art and didn't like Nicieza's writing (on this series).
