When the Alpha Flight series was announced a few months back, writers Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente and artist Dale Eaglesham were asked about it being a mini-series or an ongoing. Their response was it was going to be eight issues, but could go longer if the sales are there. Apparently they were because at the FanExpo Canada yesterday, Pak and Van Lente announced the title was to be an ongoing.
Alpha Flight is a group of super heroes who answer to the Canadian government as part of Department H, a branch of the Department of Defense. In the current book, the government (and essentially the country) has turned against the team, who have gone from revered to outlaws in a blank of an eye.
I highly recommend this book and I am excited to know that it will be continuing past the eight issues that were announced.
