    Omega Flight

    When the solicitation for Omega Flight #1 came out, fans were shocked to see that it was slated to be a 5 issue Mini-Series instead of a full length series as was originally intended. AlphaFlight.net spoke with Omega Flight editor Andy Schmidt to uncover what had happened.

    Originally printed 01/08/17

    AlphaFlight.net: The solicitations for Omega Flight #1 just came out, and fans are already up in arms about it being listed as a 5 issue mini-series. This is news to everyone, so I'm hoping you are able to set the record strait on what's going on.

    Schmidt, Andy: Ill certainly try.

    AlphaFlight.net: Why was the Omega Flight series "downgraded" to a 5 part mini?

    Schmidt, Andy: Were trying not to overload the market with CIVIL WAR spin-off books. While weve got plenty of ideas and were confidant that OMEGA FLIGHT will be well received, were also aware that a lot of people have been spending a lot of money on our books lately. Were trying not to ask too much of our readers and their ...

    Michael Avon Oeming

    This interview was originally published 01/12/07 leading into the launch of Omega Flight. Michael Avon Oeming shares his thoughts on his upcoming Omega Flight series. He discusses a variety of subject of concern for "Classic" Alpha Flight fans, and new fans to Omega alike.


    AlphaFlight.net: Hi Mike, Thanks for taking time out of your busy day. These days it certainly looks like you are one of the busiest people in the industry.

    Oeming: I doubt it! You see how much I sleep. If I was serious about work, I would cut that **** out.

    AlphaFlight.net: Thinking back, what was you first exposure to Alpha Flight?

    Oeming: Hmm, I had to be looking through a friends collection when I was a kid. I certainly remember when I first started liking Mignola's work, his covers caught my eye. There was and still is nothing like it on the shelves... ...

    Leading up to the launch of Omega Flight, series artist Scott Kolins discussed the title with AlphaFlight.net.

    AlphaFlight.net: First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time for this interview Scott. I look at this as a chance for the fans to get to know a bit about the man behind the pencils of Omega Flight before it hits the shelves.

    How did you first become interested in comics, and what made you decide to make a career in penciling them?

    SCOTT: I was about 5 or 6 when I ran past a magazine shelf that also had comics something Id never seen before. They had 2 Hulk consecutive issues that just leapt out at me. Hulk #179 & 180 I believe. My friends had gone on and had to double back to find me; I dont know what happened the rest of the day Iwas hooked. I ...

    This Interview was originally published in 02/20/06, prior to the official announcement of Omega Flight's Launch.

    This a mini-interview took place shortly after Marvel Editor In Chief, Joe Quesada announced a possible Alpha Flight relaunch, only days after the events of New Avengers #16 (In which Alpha Flight was seemingly killed off).

    AlphaFlight.net: Hello Mark. Because of the news Joe Quesada just gave regarding the possibility of a new Alpha Flight series in the works, I'm curious if you might be involved. I know in your last interview with me you mentioned a possibility of you using the Alpha Flight characters down the road. Otherwise if you aren't connected to it, I'm curious if you've heard any buzz about it in the Marvel grapevine.

    This interview was conducted days after the release of Wolverine #25, in which publicly the homosexual hero Northstar was killed. It is important to note that later in the storyline (after this interview was conducted) Northstar was resurrected.



    AlphaFlight.net:
    Hello Mark, let me first tank you for taking time out of your day.

    Mark Millar: My pleasure, Ben. I came across your site when I was researching the character just prior to this story-line and really like it. It's a really smart site and the comments on the boards are always really constructive and pretty funny.

    AlphaFlight.net: As I'm sure you know, before Wolverine #25 has even hit the shelves, the net is buzzing about the death of Northstar. Can you tell me what lead you to the decision of killing him off? Was this decision based more on the story in question, or the character?

    Interview by Richard Vasseur

    Richard: Where were you born and raised?

    Scott: Born and bred in the Upstate New York hamlet of Marlboro, New York. It was and remains a small town.

    Richard:
    How did you get into writing comics?

    Scott: Six years of rejection letters from Marvel and DC! (What was I thinking?! Couldn't I take a hint?!) One time it was so bad I got a rejection letter for a ROBIN story! I was like "Wha -- ?!" I went back in my files to discover I had sent a Robin story TWO YEARS earlier! I had forgotten I had even written it! (Imagine -- it is not bad enough I got rejected! I had to get a note two years later, as if to sa

    AlphaFlight.net:
    First, let me thank you for coming, I'm quite looking forward to this. I'll start off with more general questions, and we can narrow it down from there

    Duncan Rouleau: Sounds good

    AlphaFlight.net: I know that you and Steven Seagle have worked together on other books before, with Dark Horse. Tell me a bit about that.

    Duncan Rouleau: We came up with several predator story lines that have appeared in D.H.P. Steve and I had wanted to work with each other for quiet some time. That was our first opportunity.

    James D Hudnall Alpha Flight Interview

    Interview by: DelBubs

    AlphaFlight.net: Straight of the Cuff, do you remember the first comic you read and what impact did it have on you, if any?

    James Hudnall: The first comic I remember looking at was Mad Magazine. But the first comic books I read were Richie Rich, Casper, Hot Stuff and all those other Harvey comics. Really liked them when I was a little kid. I liked the world the characters lived in. When I was 7 I was introduced to AstroBoy and Osamu Tezuka by a Japanese friend. I didn't get into Marvel and DC comics until later, though I may have read a few Superman comics as a little kid. The effect these books had on me were varied, but I think the biggest effect was they developed my love of fantastic fiction and sci-fi.
