    Default New Alpha Flight HC in February

    Solicited for Feb 2011: X-Men and Alpha Flight (both series) along with Uncanny X-Men #s 109, 120, 121, 139 and 140! With a variant cover reprinting Cockrum's Weapon Alpha! Awesome.

    Love,

    Any price-tag on that puppy? Because that sounds tempting, but paying money for Ben Raab's work ever again puts me on the fence so far as acquiring it goes.

    Fantastic!
    Will buy this for sure, even though I usually only buy softcovers.
    So we have Alpha action in new comics and trades...cool!
    Next I would like:
    1 A new Alpha Flight ongoing
    2 Alpha Flight Classic Volume 2 TPB
    3 Alpha Flight Vol 2 (90s) Ultimate Collection TPB (complete series in 1 volume)
    4 Northstar limited series + extras TPB

    Yes, I've posted that I've been collecting all of them - so this will be mine either way.
    That said, I really can't predict whether they'll include the bonus material, but knowing them I'm leaning towards 'yes' - but I wouldn't be surprised if it was tacked on to the end.

    But I can confirm what Phil posted - the 2 layered colour version is always the variant. And really annoying when the three you had to buy over Amazon turned out not to be the variant!

    A little research later:
    The Wikipedia page for Marvel Premier Classics says it'll reprint Uncanny X-Men, not Classic X-Men, so I'm not going to hold my breath for the bonus material.

    Yes a pony in a Guardian suit...why didn't I think of that!

    Seriously though, how many bloody Avengers trades do we get every month, it's not too much to ask for a couple of AFs?

    And we get what 5 or so Deadpool comics every month, just give us 1 AF comic... that is all, end rant!

    And the variant is the Smith cover, not the other one(which they list as being by Byrne).

    Are you sure about this? I'm fairly certain I did this right, the Cockrum cover being the partial reprinting of the cover of UXM #109 as the variant and the Smith cover reprinting the wraparound cover of the X-Men Alpha Flight crossover is the regular cover.

    EDIT: I fixed the OP with the correct info

    Don't make me come over there! >
