Flight Update

Okay, thanks to AlphaFlight.net for directing my attention to the below points. If you are an Alpha Flight fan and you aren’t paying attention to AlphaFlight.net , then you are mistaken.

According to recent interviews and tweets, Puck is a strong “maybe” to appear in the maxi-series. Where Persuasion (Purple Girl) is, will be revealed. And Beta Flight will definitely make an appearance.

Also, a government-created Alpha Flight team will be going up against our Alpha Flight, and from the image below…




…it looks like Mac might well be leading them!

Also, some cool sketch images from Dale Eaglesham.










The official solicitation…

ALPHA FLIGHT #1 ( of 8 )
Written by GREG PAK & FRED VAN LENTE
Penciled by DALE EAGLESHAM
Cover by PHIL JIMENEZ
FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN


A FEAR ITSELF maxi-series spinoff! Do you fear...your country turning on you? Alpha Flight has long been the protector of an entire nation...but what happens when that nation needs to be protected from itself? New York Times best-selling authors Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente, along with red-hot artist Dale Eaglesham, bring back the team you demanded—the original Alpha Flight! Sasquatch, Snowbird, Northstar and Aurora have been joined by their revived allies Guardian, Vindicator, Shaman, and Marrina as the paragons and protectors of an entire nation. But as FEAR ITSELF takes over, their own country turns on the Flight and brands them traitors for the shocking actions of one of their closest allies. As the borders close and an entire nation hunts them down, will the newly reunited Alpha Flight survive?
40 PGS./Rated T+ ...$3.99

(ON-SALE 6/8/11)



And, it is official, the maxi-series is 9 issues; 8 issues, PLUS the 0.1 to start with (in May).

I hope they called Persuasion by her original code-name: Purple Girl. I never did quite like her later code-name.

I was partial to Grape-Lass, actually. :P

I'm more interested to see if anybody uses Yukon Jack. Jack is where it's at.

I just saw an interview where they referenced the changes undergone by "Purple Woman". I can dig that new code-name! :)
