Alpha Flight: Rebirth?!?!?!

Well today Marvel announced that they are relaunching Alpha Flight with a new 8 issue maxi-series in June. The writing will consist of Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente with art by Dale Eaglesham. The events in Alpha Flight will tie into Marvel's Fear Itself crossover as well.

Snowbird, Aurora, Northstar and Sasquatch will be joined by the recently ressurected Guardian, Vindicator, Shaman and Marrina.

"You don't have to have read anything to jump on board here," Pak said during Marvel's Alpha Flight conference call. "Old time Alpha Flight fans will have a lot of fun seeing everything references, but you don't even have to have read an 'Alpha Flight' book before."

The new Alpha Flight will kick off in May with a "Point 1" issue by artist Ben Oliver, which will serve as a prelude for the maxi-series in June.

.... oh and DC is giving Static Shock his own ongoing title... I know I shoulda ended on a strong note!
