More Alpha Goodness - news, news, and news!

Here is the official Marvel solicitation for the first issue [ 0.1 ] of the Alpha Flight maxi-series…

Written by GREG PAK & FRED VAN LENTE Penciled by Ben Oliver Cover by PHIL JIMENEZ
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?

Special POINT ONE issue.


The following is from an Interview done by Fred Van Lente…

Van Lente: “Alpha Flight is the government-run superhero team, the idols of an entire nation — but precipitated by the events of Fear Itself, that government falls into the hands of a fascist-minded party. Before they know it, the once-beloved super heroes are branded traitors and have to go on the run from the nation that once adored them — and betrayed by one of their own members. Can Alpha Flight figure out who is behind the conspiracy against them — and lead a fight to overthrow their own government — before they’re caught and destroyed themselves?”

And finally, word has come from artist Dale Eaglesham that the maxi-series will have variant covers by Dale, as well as the regular covers by Phil Jiminez.
