    Default Marvel Atlas #2 of 2

    Though I can't find a solicit, Sasquatch is on the cover for the 2nd installment of Marvel Atlas, issue 2 of a 2 issue run. The first issue features Asia and Europe, I think. I flipped through it briefly. The 2nd issue features North America.

    Canada is in North America! Let me now give thanks to Mrs. Sommer, my 3rd grade teacher. We're likely to see some Alpha Flight!

    The cover art to issue #2 is shown on the inside cover of #1, and is a continuation of the cover to issue #1, as some of the art overlaps. Scarlet Witch's cape flutters over the right margin into the next issue cover. Those buying only issue #2 will wonder what the heck the little red fabric thingy is on the left margin...

    Does anyone know the release date?

    Love,

    Weird, there isn't even anything on the Marvel website either about it.

    Where did you see the cover?

    I tried to explain it my post. I saw the cover art to #2 on the inside front cover of issue #1. Go look for yourself if your LCS allows browsing! I didn't see it at Marvel.com either. I doubt I'll buy issue #1, but, if I do, I'll scan it in.

    That'd be because it's not out until March, and the official solicits are only up to February at the moment. But since the back of Atlas #1 lists it, I can discuss it a bit.

    Yup. And Australia and New Zealand.

    Basically it'll feature the continents not covered by Atlas #1.

    I'd post it, but I can't figure out how to upload an image to this forum (as opposed to linking to an existing online image).

    March. Says it right under the image of the cover.

    Aha! I'm not crazy. March 2008. Cover art is up. You can see what I mean about Scarlet Witch's cape.

    O/T: Now I see three other interesting Alpha Flight related books in those solicits:

    MCP#7 with Guardian on the cover

    Essential OHOTMU: Master Edition vol 1 (which looks like a reprint of many Alpha Flight entries) The cover art says "2" for issue #1, strange.

    Earth X Companion - which I swear was solicited for Sep 2007 and I never saw it. Well, it's 7 months late and I'm still excited to see it. Alpha Flight may appear (they did in the original Earth X series)

    Love,

    Yeah, I saw that but it was already mentioned in another thread.

    Marvel Adventures is the kids universe thingy, right? I don't know much about it and how it is connected with the mainstream Marvel Universes.

    It's seperate from the main marvel universe, and like you said it's generally for the "kids". However, at least it's classic Alpha Flight

    You need to have an account at a site like photobucket.com from which you can then link it here.

    You are a stupid seal with a small rooster. Translate that into french and you'll get it.

    thanks Loki for those pages. I did not read everything but I saw that Belmonde first name was corrected. Thanks. But, you know the provincial capital of Québec is Quebec City not Montreal.
