    Default Captain Canuck and The Guardian

    Okay - may be stretching stating this is an Alpha appearance, but its kinda cool.

    Um?

    First of all, let me just say...huh?!?

    Secondly, having noted that this was a DC comic release (and at 60 cents, i am believing this is a late 70's or early 80's issue), without having done any research at all on this, i am going out on a limb and saying that this image is a fake. I don't think there is any way that DC could use Guardian's image, or even Captain Canuck's image, without having been severely sued.

    I don't think it's supposed to be anything but a fake. With the 60c price tag you pointed out, and the old school indica, it's from the 70s or 80s; but the computer colouring job (note the blurred background) is very much of today.

    Guardian's drawing style is also far more recent than the indica.

    This is from Super-Team Family: The Lost issues. Ross Pearsall creates these fake covers of team ups we wished had happened.

    HA!

    Those are awesome, Chris, thanks for clearing that up, and sharing those links.

    Oh man...too much to even TRY to comment on, some of these make-believe covers are mind-blowing! I'd buy ALL of those!

    Thumbs up What a mash-up!

    I started from the bottom of the list up: Batman and Alpha Flight. I really needed a laugh!
