    Default Favourite Alpha Cover

    Couldn't really do this in Polls, so thought I'd ask, what is your favourite Alpha, Alpha appearence cover and comment if you feel the need to say why? Probably done this, somewhere at some time, but eh, what the heck?

    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!

    ? probably?

    So iconic. But not ironic.
    But kinda laconic.

    I really like issue #3 (that Mik posted above) and #12 of volume 1 (that you have as your av, Del), both are really striking images...But I think my favourite is issue #1 of volume 1.

    Although...I have to say, this one is genius...

    I never liked Wolverine so I always loved when Mac would clobber him on a cover. Add the casualness of taking out Colossus. This cover may not be as iconic but I always thought it was petty bad ass.

    Out of all the good covers that have been on AF comics, this one is probably my fave.

    To me, this leads into what Alpha was all about, the unsure family without the leader until Heather took over. Who kills a series leader? I cant recall it ever happening in comics before this. The format was so popular with the target headshots, I think its been used like four times in Alpha history through different series

    I just like the perspective in the cover. Alpha was booming when it originally happened. Wolverine always returning to help out Alpha before Wolverine was in every series

    Northstar and Aurora were going through issues and doubts and Loki feeds us the Asgard fairy tale and even though we thought it was a horrible idea, it still placed a big time villain against Alpha. Walter had just come back from the dead as Snowbird and Puck leaps into the Fire Fountain and at the end of the issue, no one from the Byrne era original team was left (Walter was Wanda so Im counting Wanda as a member)

    I'd have to say MA #2 or AF (1) #1.

    Other than that AF (1) #10 for the raging Sasquatch.
