But I'm not convinced that MARVEL is truly interested in Alpha/Omega characters due to the fact that on the cover of MCP it says "Weapon Alpha" but inside it refers to "Guardian," Agent Brown doesn't look anything like Agent Brown, and the story is rather generic, so far.
Since complaning isn't the purpose of this thread, I agree that a great creative team is needed, not just a good writer. In Alpha/Omega's instance, I would include an exceptional editor in addition to the writer, artist, letterer, and colorist as part of the creative team. Paco Medina (the artist who is doing the Zodiac issues of The New Warriors) would be a good choice on art, and I prefer stories that are written concisely so my preference is Will Pfeiffer. The first two issues (and it should be a 5- or 6-issue mini-series to see if there really is a readership for it) should be 25 pages to spotlight as many characters as possible while laying down the conceptual foundation.
Ideally, given that different fans will want to see different characters, each issue in the mini-series should be 25 pages.
