    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 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).

    I wonder if it'll be the standard versions of the story or the Classic X-Men version with the extra pages...

    ... the classic x-men issues had more pages?

    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! >

    Yes, the Classic X-Men versions of UXM#'s 109, 120 and 121 had additional material, a few extra pages:

    Classic X -Men #16: This issue is a reprint of Uncanny X-Men #109, with some extra material. The cover is an amazing rendition by Arthur Adams of events within UXM #109, where Mac first pops up out of the ground. The extra AF-related material is on p6, where Mac briefly recaps his association with Logan and dons his cybernetic helmet and on p21, where he reviews his performance and flies back to 138A Laurier Drive and finds Heather Hudson at home.

    Classic X-Men #26: This issue is a reprint of Uncanny X-Men #120, with some extra material. The cover says, "And now... Sasquatch!", and shows Sasquatch's arm. The extra AF-related material is on p3, showing Mac in the Dept H. control room, viewing the team roster, then calling Heather and talking about the upcoming mission.

    Classic X-Men #27: This issue is a reprint of Uncanny X-Men #121, with some extra material. The cover says, "Along came… Alpha Flight" and shows a very evil shadowy team standing in angry victory over fallen X-Men. The extra AF-related material is on p20, an epilogue page depicting events after Logan's escape. The interior cover also shows a Polaroid of Hudson and Logan in civilian clothes enjoying a beer and a cigar as well as an image in f/b to the fight sequence of UXM #109, shown below.
