    Post Will there be an Alpha Flight On going series?

    My question is that, since there is a this new mini-series, will it be possible for a new On-going series to come out? And if so, when?

    All depends on the sales of the mini, so if the mini sells well then yes there will be an on-going. However, as of yet it's still way to early to say if there will be an on-going or not.

    So in the mean time enjoy the mini and buy lots of copies

    Well so far I don't think so. AF 0.1 was #62 of the top 300 books for may and sold 25,775 books for May 2011. Though the top selling book only sold 96,318.
    Wow comic books selling under the 100,000 mark. Never thought I'd see this day. Back in the 90's selling 96,000 copies would break you into the top 100, not be #1.

    The numbers on the first issue sales may wind up being inflated. I've heard mentions from shop owners in other forums that issue #1 was double-shipped/overshipped, and the 0.1 issues in general had low initial orders because there wasn't a lot of interest in them, so it may be that we don't get a more accurate feel for the book's selling potential until the numbers for issue #2 are in.

    That's true. I just hope that the series dose well over the 8 part and good enough to give them an on going series. BTW I got the numbers from IVC2.com And what worries me more is the falling numbers all across the board. I also fear that even if AF dose good, because of the way thing are going there may not even be a series.

    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!

    i fully believe that if a ongoing comes along it wont be a continuation of this maxi-series (9) it will get its own #1 re-launch.

    No, that's the figure for #0.1 and on the whole it was a good figure compared to the current industry.
    June's figures haven't been released yet, which is odd, but probably to do with everyone in the industry getting ready for San Diego.

    EDIT: June's sales index has just been released. Check the news story. Sales should follow soon.

    Yeah, it's more likely to take the Agents of Atlas route and take half a year out and then have another maxi or an ongoing.

    Oh it will have to be an Alpha Flight version 2.1 something. Bringing in new Flighters and trying to make Century Man cool this time and not just an old grouch...

    Don't panic. # 2 tells/starts a good on-going story about Alpha Flight. This is the way it should be done. If they keep doing it like this for six more issues, the real buzz will grow and the craftsmanship will be seen...and appreciated.
