    Default Art print - realm of the beasts?

    Random question but have any of you on your travels ever come across a print of the splash page of when alpha flight entered the realm of the beasts? It's one of my favorite peices and want to put it in my office.

    I haven't had any luck

    I haven't. That'd be a very specific Alpha Flight merchandise to expect.

    Would it be possible to make one, do you suppose?
    Also, are we talking AF v1 #24?

    Yep that's the one.

    I tried scanning my copy and even tried to download an electronic version of the issue; but the quality isn't there to blow it up

    :/
    It makes me wonder how you'd go about looking up something like that?
    There's got to be a website dedicated to comic art as art.

    I think the issue is that the mass production of prints is a relatively new one in the grand scheme of comics and wasn't really a thing when the issue itself actually came out. To be sold now as retro it tends to be the artist or the company that would produce such a print; Byrne would have no desire to and it doesn't make financial sense for Marvel to, so I don't think you'll ever get one I'm afraid. ��

    Closest thing you'll get is the original art! Good luck hunting it down.
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    If you get a professional standard rasterisation program it'd theoretically be possible to enlarge it to a decent quality.

    And if you get a rasta-isation program, you should be able to en-reggae it.
