Before, I started collecting the comicbook. I did have doubts about buying the Omega Flight mini series. Later on, I checked out Mr.Kolins artwork at newsarama.com. Then I decided to give him a try. When I bought it the comicbook. I began to like it more allowing myself to look over Mr.Kolins penciling. I like the Alpha Flight very much. Plus Arachne is one of my favorite characters in the story. In the future, I hope Omega Flight goes over five issues. So far, Omega Flight 1# has sold out very quickly.
--Previous Message-- : Been doing a lot of remodeling on my house to : get it ready to put on the market and : haven't had much free time lately to do : much, let alone read. : : Anyway, I just read it and was pleased with : it, but was kind of disappointed in the : artwork. I saw Kolins' preview pencils and : they looked great, but something happened : between the pencils and finished art that : really muddied his work. Maybe it was the : coloring. : : I'm glad Walt is in the book. He really was : taking it to the wrecking crew before they : all ganged up on him at once. But I have a : feeling some payback is coming Flight-style. : : My only concern right now is that this is a : five issue mini and Oeming should have had : the entire team together by the end of this : issue, but he didn't. Talisman said no : (although we know she is going to change her : mind), USAgent and Arachne were said to be : on the team, but they don't appear in the : issue, and there's not one mention of Beta : Ray Bill or the new Guardian. : : Oeming HAS to pick up the pacing. I realize : that he probably already wrote the first few : issues before the series was reduced to a : mini (stupid Queseda!) but if that's the : case, then he should have made some tweaks : to the story. This is a prime example of why : comic companies (are you listening Marvel?) : should NOT solicit a book as an ongoing and : then change it later on to a mini when the : creative team already has two or three : issues in the bag. : : Reading this issue really made me miss the : original AF team and the stories, so I'm : hoping this mini does well and it gets : approved for more issues, which will make it : more likely to see some of the original : members appearing (like maybe Aurora, : Northstar, etc. ) :
