Wanted to love it but ended up only liking it...
Alpha Flight #0.1
The colorful poster on the PrevPage screams whitewash following the completely ignored first sentence. [BTW, gonna co-plot an intro for a new Whitewash!] And then the story seems to go w/the oxymoron of a new restart by sweeping everything under the rug, *rats*, since the Collective killed the Flight. [BTW, wanna co-plot an intro of The Rug-rat!]
The art was nice though the background was a bit glossed over. [BTW, how 'bout High Gloss!] And the characterization was fun but keeping in mind that ignorance can be bliss regarding some key AF developments of their past. [BTW, Beware the intro of Bliss!]
Obviously some MU continuity concerns will be dealt with - hopefully satisfactorily. Lost of old friends to revisit is promising. And so many possible new story/character ideas to go with is exciting. Liked reuse of Cody &Kyle +Citadel =neat. Intrighing direction with Purple 'Woman' and the The 'Mad Men Man'. Canada getting the spotlight again is all good, too, eh? Therefore still very optomistic of what is next... [BTW, cue the newest Elder of the Universe: The Optomist!]
I miss Dan.
