    Thanks for sharing. You know, a lot of good artists want to draw AF, and some good writers want to as well! Ain't it a shame we haven't gotten Joe Q. to see the light yet?

    Ah, but hope springs eternal!

    Beautiful Work! Too bad we can't get it in print. I might actually start buying comics again if I could get that!

    Yeah I wish they would get a chance and fix the history since it's just so confusing now. I'm ignoring what happened at the end of Vol.3. Anyways Alpha Flight is fairly popular for not being a mainstream team and I think that's one of the reasons they appeals to me.

    Also I think you can buy those covers from his site. He's very old-school

    Default Excellent

    Man, where was he when TPTB were getting ready to change creative teams with AF# 29? Is he still interested in illustrating AF? I would be very enthused if Mr. Frisano expressed interest in doing AF.

    Well, there is 3 mr. Frisano working in the industry in France. There is the father Jean Frisano who as far as I know only did covers and no actual comic. He is the one that draw the AF cover you can see here. There is his uncle Pierre, that did at least a comic called Courtisane and now there is Thomas, the website is his. Thomas could do AF or maybe not since the french comicbook format and industry is very different, I don't know if he could produce the comic in the time needed for an american comic.

    And to answer your fisrt question : They were all in France.

    Like I said he's old school

    Does anyone else know any artist who did a take on Alpha Flight that not many would know about?

    edit: I didn't know Jim Lee did Alpha Flight

    AF #51 was the first work Jim Lee did with Marvel, if I recall correctly.

    The cover for AF #75 is my all time favorite. Lee did his first work for Marvel on AF and the quality of those issues has never been repeated.

    Hitch and Neary both took a crack at Alpha, long before they joined forces on 'The Authority'. Mark Gruenwald and Greg Larocque, both had goes as well. Some big names there. I guess if we read through every appearence, we would see some well known names scattered throughout.

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    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!
