Alpha Flight #7: It's almost the end of another Alpha Flight series. And besides the goofy villain, the series continues to chug along at a great pace.
Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente add everyone's favorite mutant this month, but the issue doesn't focus on him that much. The issue is still about Alpha Flight and Wolverine just happens to be there. The characterization is great, with some patented Pak/Van Lente humor thrown in. What has bogged this series down is the goofy villain The Master. Having aliens JUST invade Canada is a little awkward when you think about the scope of the plot. The whole anti-unity machine is never properly explained, except that it will undo the the process.
Dale Eaglesham continues to do some of his best pencil work. The action scenes look great as well as the facial expressions. What impresses the most is that he continues to do this great work without needing a fill in artist like he did with Fantastic Four. And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that Eaglesham pencils some beautiful women.
Alpha Flight #7 gets 3.5/5.
