    So… um… wait. Alpha Flight #8 is the Final Issue? I thought they changed that from a mini to an ongoing. Did they do that only to cancel it at the end of the originally set 8 issue run? Alpha Flight is the reason I started to read Marvel again after 25 years.

      I don’t believe so, no. They had announced that the book was going to be ongoing. I’d wager there’s a new #1 on the horizon, tied into (naturally) the Point One thing.

        Ah! Gotcha. AF was my gateway drug back into Marvel and now I’m… well… reading far too much of it.
