    Well, a lot of people sincerely loved it.
    Especially since it was the first 'Alpha Flight' series in a loooong time.

    There was a lot I liked about Volume 2, namely the characters, except Murmur. I think Murmur, was possibly the worse character (as a member of Alpha/Beta/Gamma, even Omega Flight), in Alpha Flight history, ever created - beating out quite a few of the Gamma Flight people from Volume 1 who I strongly disliked. Llan still wins worse character ever created - in Alpha Flight history. He'd be up against Maggot, Marrow and a few other horrible characters that were created in the MARVEL Universe.

    My boggled mind is more about the value that those were selling for.

    First appearance new team with movie. Extra dollars.

    You should've seen how much Guardians of the Galaxy appearances went up when they got their new 90s series! I'd grabbed a few real cheap, then their 90s series was announced, and suddenly you couldn't find them, and if you could they cost!

    (I wonder how much they go for now? Does the fact they don't even pretend to be the same team affect the price?)

    Well if memory serves me correct, Major Victory was a part (briefly) for the relaunched Guardians of the Galaxy by Abnett & Lanning. (You should read their version of the team if you have not already!)

    Really? That surprises me.
    And, it'd suck to lose you! You do so much of the work around here!

    Other than the cartoon appearance I'd never heard of AF until Volume 2 was advertised as I didn't get into US comics until about 1995 so had it not have been for the second volume I'd never have tracked down the first.

    I'm glad you did hear about them, no matter how it happened.

    I liked Vol2, a lot. Again, i would have loved to see where the series ended up had it kept going other ten or twenty or thirty issues. It got really compressed the last few issues when it suddenly had to get wrapped up mid-plot (danm, I hates that).
