    Michael Avon Oeming discusses Marvel's decision to alter Omega Flight from a regular series to a 5 issue mini-series.

    AlphaFlight.net: Hello Mike, thanks for joining me once again.

    With the solicitation out for Omega Flight #1, Marvel has announced it as being a 5 issue Mini series, instead of the regular length series it was initially supposed to be. What explanation were you given for the reasoning behind this decision? Might this mini still lead to a regular series?

    Oeming: Andy Schmidt, Omega Flight editor explained in best when he said Marvel was simply afraid of flooding the post Civil War Market with spin-offs. Its simple, should the book do well, we'll see more of it. If not, Omega Flight/Alpha Flight will rise again in time.

    AlphaFlight.net: The solicitations for Omega Flight #1 just came out, and fans are already up in arms about it being listed as a 5 issue mini-series. This is news to everyone, so I'm hoping you are able to set the record strait on what's going on.

    Schmidt, Andy: Ill certainly try.

    AlphaFlight.net: Why was the Omega Flight series "downgraded" to a 5 part mini?

    Schmidt, Andy: Were trying not to overload the market with CIVIL WAR spin-off books. While weve got plenty of ideas and were confidant that OMEGA FLIGHT will be well received, were also aware that a lot of people have been spending a lot of money on our books lately. Were trying not to ask too much of our readers and their ...

    Leading up to the launch of Omega Flight, series artist Scott Kolins discussed the title with AlphaFlight.net.

    AlphaFlight.net: First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time for this interview Scott. I look at this as a chance for the fans to get to know a bit about the man behind the pencils of Omega Flight before it hits the shelves.

    How did you first become interested in comics, and what made you decide to make a career in penciling them?

    SCOTT: I was about 5 or 6 when I ran past a magazine shelf that also had comics something Id never seen before. They had 2 Hulk consecutive issues that just leapt out at me. Hulk #179 & 180 I believe. My friends had gone on and had to double back to find me; I dont know what happened the rest of the day Iwas hooked. I ...
