Confession time. I’ve never read any comics with the characters from Alpha Flight in them. In fact, until today I’ve never heard of them at all. However, after looking at the art and reading the story of this new comic series, I have to say I’m extremely interested in reading more.
Here’s the scoop on the new book from the gang at Marvel:
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Alpha Flight #1 from New York Times best-selling authors Greg Pak & Fred Van Lente and acclaimed artist Dale Eaglesham. Canada’s original super team is back in action – but can they survive the terror of Fear Itself? With their homeland gripped by fear, Alpha Flight has been named enemies of the state and their country has vowed to hunt them down!
Can Guardian, Sasquatch and the rest of the team quell the influence of Fear Itself and restore order to the Great White North? The team faces its most daunting enemy yet – their own government.
I mean, come on, the comic has the mother effing Sasquatch in it. How can that not be cool?
Check out a whole slew of images from the new comic after the jump. Look for Alpha Flight #1 in comic book stores on June 8th.
