The above is my full review, such as it is. I'm a few weeks late to this party, but I'll add my two cents worth into the fray.

Personally, I have no problems with any of the writing or plot within this issue. I think it all works, its all good, and I look forward to more of it. I am happily confident. No, this isn't John Byrne's Alpha Flight; but, if you want John Byrne's Alpha Flight, then i suggets you READ John Byrne's Alpha Flight.

At the end of the day, this is Alpha Flight as Greg and Fred image them. That means changes. Change happens. This series is good enough, that i am willing to swallow the changes, and hang on to this great series with future anticipation for many more good things.
