      Or maybe she's in the smoking crater they're all staring at...

      I swear, every issue cover looks more amazing than the last one. This series just keeps getting better. My only hope is that Mac, Heather and Claire are together by the end of it.

      Nice cover image, and showing that smoke trail will make people wonder what has happened. Like how Puck has been shown so agile again.

      I agree with Alpha East! The drawings and colors are amazing, again! Def a huge fan of it all! Could this smoke be coming from the entrance to Hell? Is Puck bringing them to his former realm?

      I agree this title is getting stronger and stronger.

      I just hope the sales are enough to justify making it an ongoing series.

      I think we've found our backup for Dale, when it comes to drawing Alpha Flight. Tom's Sasquatch rocks!

      I do like the proportions, but I'm not entirely sold on the face.
      I didn't like the way he drew Sabretooth in X-Men Forever either though, so it's probably just a me thing.

      I do however really like Northstar's face. Very Byrne-esque.

      Click once to open the article and then the pic again to get a large size version. Phil uploaded a better image than the original.

      I did that before but the quality was low, but now its fine as he must have reuploaded a better one.
    1. DelBubs's Avatar

      Yeah the low quality was pretty much down to me. Ifanboy posted the solicits way before any of the usual sites (Newsarama, CBR, Bleeding Cool) and the image they posted was an issue. Phil, god bless him, posted the first decent image that became available.

      I agree, I don't like Sas' face in this at all. His Puck looks very Mignola-esque.

      'former'?

      It's a bit too cartoonish for me. Overall, he doesn't look like he's quite left the 90s behind...
      But that said, this cover really fails to suck. I could definitely get used to the guy as an artist on the title.

      Well, yah. Issue 6, to be precise.

      Also, not sure why this thread is marked spoiler sensitive?
