    Eaglesham Variant Cover for Alpha Flight#1

    Marvel is pleased to present your first look at artist Dale Eaglesham’s variant cover to ALPHA FLIGHT #1 (of 8 ), featuring the return of Canada’s greatest heroes! As the shadow of Fear Itself falls across the globe, will a nation turn to – or turn on – Alpha Flight in their greatest hour of need?


    “I've always wanted to do ALPHA FLIGHT, but didn't think I'd ever get the opportunity, so I'm very excited about this,” said Eaglesham. “This is the ideal team book - the characters have such depth and are so unique, so colorful. We have the heroic and iconic in Guardian, Snowbird and Northstar, for example, along with some quirkier heroes like Sasquatch and Marrina. As an artist, this is something I can really sink my teeth into and I'm loving every minute! With Greg and Fred writing, we also have some very topical, gripping and moving stories. I think the fans are going to fall in love with this book. I know I am.”
    Discover why the team still stands tall as the greatest heroes of the Great White North, only in ALPHA FLIGHT #1 (of 8 )! No fan can miss the thunderous return of a legendary Marvel super team this June!

      More confusion, just when you thought you had an angle on who the traitor may be, it turns out that he/she may not be a traitor, but some one who's actions lead to Alpha being branded as traitors. Really looking forward to this.

      In case anyone was wondering about the pricing of the book, according to FVL via his Twitter, only the first issue is $3.99 because of it being 40 pages. The rest of the series will be $2.99 to be in line with Marvel's pricing structure covering new series.

      I'd prefer that they all cost $9.99, and were each 200 pages.

      But if there were 8 like that, that'd be almost twenty dollars!
      I wanted a peanut!

      (TBH, I'd rather read at least one before I start hoping for 200-page extravaganzas. Once I've read one, then I'll hope...)

      I like the idea of Marrina being portrayed as strong and feminine. I don't think she ever got the chance to be anything more than a constant victim with no real character developement.

      What a great cover. Upside down flag. That is NEVER a good thing. Captain America once had an upside flag waved behind him, later on he turned into a werewolf. True story!
