    Default New Alpha Flight poster by Jiminez

    I'M SORRY THERE IS NO IMAGE YET

    Just want to get that out of the way up front.

    It's solicited at Diamond for May 2011 to coincide with the 0.1 issue. Scroll down a bit, it's under "A"

    ALPHA FLIGHT BY PHIL JIMENEZ POSTER

    $8.99


    Thanks to the little bird who let me know about this.

    Love,

    The lack of image does not bother me -- I figure it's either the NA variant or the 0.1 cover and I'd be glad to have either one on my wall.

    I'm hoping its an ULTRA MEGA poster consisting of 8 covers laid out in a continuous montage, and that the first 8 issues of Alpha Flight v4 use them as covers, and that they are gatefold covers, double folded into three sections so that the poster is actually the width of 24 comic covers, blown up poster size so it's bigger than the biggest wall in my house.

    For $8.99 it's most likely gonna be the image we've already seen.

    Does it list the size? I'm guessing it doesn't.

    OK, did anyone actually pick it up? I'm wondering what it is now! I ordered it but haven't gotten it in yet due to LCS being pretty much terrible at the whole ordering thing.

    I got it. It's quite large, dunno the exact dimensions. I looked at it once, it's the cover for 0.1. My wife made me put it away so that I don't wrinkle it, and she told me to get it framed

    Thanks Ben. Did yours come folded or rolled up? I'm hoping rolled up. I can't stand folded posters. What is the point? You can't put them up with all the huge creases!

    Very nice! I'm not unrolling mine until after the move, no use getting it crinkled.

    Cool, Ben!

    I usually get my posters framed, but this one is actually guilty.
