    "DAYS OF FUTURE PRESENT, PAST PARTICIPLE" Conclusion!
    Alpha Flight continues to get their hands dirty playing in the timestream. Can they set things right before the end of their final issue? They darn well better! And you won't believe who shows up to say good-bye!

    I guess we all knew it was coming, but it's still a pain. This image is a pain to get working

    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    There seem to be some problems with the linked images, so I uploaded the cover to the album. Here it is:



    I wonder how many times the original Byrne cover (vol. 1 #12) has been 'homaged'? I can think of three off the top of my head - this one, vol. 2 #12 & at the end of vol. 1, either 128 or 129.

    Are there any others?

    I gather Scott's going to kill one or more members of the team, from the looks of that cover.

    No, that's a homage. And surprise-surprise, it's an Alpha Flight homage! Couldn't they have found an appropriate X-cover to model after?

    welp another "reboot" of alpha down the drain. guess i'll wait another 3 years or maybe never for another relaunch. hopefull someone will step in that respects the teams past and treats it with the respect the characters deserve, not to tell bad jokes and slap a mapleleaf on the cover.


    i just don't get it. who does everyone want to see as avengers? cap/iron man/thor


    who did everyone want to see in the jla? bat/superman/wonderwoman/flash/gl/mm.....etc.


    why do these companies continually try to use cretaive ways to put bad characters in titles? i never felt a connection or interest in any of these characters, nor did any non-alpha fans or else it wouldn't be in the 100's in sales and being cancelled again.



    ugggggggggghhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

    the formula is so easy and there are so many good stories to tell in the alphaverse yet no one has!!!!

    i pray that quesadas cryptic "everything is cyclatory" comment in canada was a shot at a reboot.



    arrrrrgggggggghhhhhh!!!!!

    I think Phil thinks it's funny to be coy at a time when his fellow Alpha fans feel lost and dejected.
    Remember, Phil, knowledge is power. With great power comes great responsibility. And you are being very irresponsible just standing there not throwing a life-ring to your fellow mates that are drowning in sorrow for the loss of an Alpha title once again.
    (How's that for a guilt trip?)
