    Default Alpha Flight to be featured in Back Issue #83

    Twomorrows came out with a new 2015 catalog today and I notice on the last page, there's going to be a huge Alpha Flight article. Here is the image of the front cover and the blurb

    Interesting. What do they usually talk about?
    The headline says Alpha Flight, but that's an Uncanny X-Men issue in the picture (#121, of course).
    Are they likely to overview the team / series? Or just focus on their first appearance?

    That's all the info we have so far. I'll get in touch with the guys at Twomorrows and see if we can get some more info. Likely it will be an overview, well written, with lots of goodies such as unpublished pieces. They publish fan art and original artwork too so I might try to send in a few pieces.

    Most comic shops can get this easily but you may have to pre-order if your LCS doesn't already carry it. Also, Twomorrows sells digital versions on their site as well.

    Given the number of teams they mention we probably won't get much on the team but it's nice to see the Marvel Portfolio 'Mutants Of Canada' piece reused as the cover and the interview should be good.
    I'll see if I can get it over here.

    I thought that's what that was!
