    I like it, but does it seem Shaman and Marrina are a tad too light?

    A spread page for the Marvel Universe section of Marvel Super Heroes Magazine, this was published in the issue 11 of the international version.
    Hmm.. how did I miss that.
    Cheers Mike!

    EDIT:

    Looking at it, it's actually from #45 (Feb-March 2012) of the UK version.

    Default There are artists who really do a good rendition of ALPHA FLIGHT...

    I like it!

    Too bad MARVEL hasn't found a way to put all the pieces together (writing/plotting, pencilling/inking, lettering, coloring, and editing) into a well-executed, well-thoughtout, untampered-with run.

    And I've just written a paragraph about pitches...

    This is good - though I disagree with the commentor who thought it looked like Art Adams... even the one who thought it was Byrne-like.
    Shaman looks like Dick Tracy!

    It's good for a one-page spread, but I don't think I'd want this guy doing a whole series, TBH. Just a little too cartoony for my taste. And given how similar Shaman's and Puck's profiles are, I don't think he has the variety of faces to do a comic.

    (We could end up with a situation like Young Avengers, where the characters start making a big deal about how two characters look alike - when you can't tell any of them apart, except for hair colour and clothing. )

    Going back, there is Monsanto (who did a Byrne-inspired take on Wolverine), Patrick Fillion (who did the reimagined SNOWBIRD cover to vol. 1 # 6), and now the artist [Scott Koblish] would did an excellent job of the whole group. Even if he only did covers, like Kevin Nolan did back in the day (or like Jimenez did for the first 4 issues of the midi-series), that would be a good choice.

    I read that editor Steve Wacker is keeping hope alive for Alpha Flight and the EIC is waiting for the right pitch and the right time. Well, I haven't heard anything concerning what I sent MARVEL a few months ago, so I guess they're looking for something else.

    I still think 7-times a year, little interference, and a creative team that is good at telling stories with a beginning-middle-and-end (old-school style, but with new-school paper and production values) will have the best chance of succeeding.

Also a full list here; http://comicbookdb.com/creator.php?ID=348 .

    It's pretty informative for a children's magazine.

    There's also a little Guardian in Where's Waldo-esque puzzle, as well as Mac & Marrina on the cover.

    If the numbering's right, it should all appear in #10 or #11 of the US version.

    If I'd caught it on the newsstand I would've done mate, but it was from months ago and thus an eBay job I'm afraid.I will keep an eye out for a second seller though.
