2099 Alpha #1 is in stores from Marvel Comics next week, and who doesn’t love a super-mega-crossover event Alpha issue? Don’t answer that. Nick Spencer, Viktor Bogdanovic, Marte Gracia, and some poor fool who lettered this thing for less than even the colorist makes and doesn’t even get their name on the cover because Marvel, and we can’t stress this enough, doesn’t respect letterers (and why should they?), are the culprits behind this thing. Let’s check out the preview.
This preview starts out in 2099 Brooklyn, where we see Mjolnir spring into action…
…and into the hands of a guy we’re gonna call… mustache Thor? But what about Cecil McAdams, the colorful Thor on the cover? Alas, he’s dead. Probably. Unfortunately, Mustache Thor 2099 is not much of a match for these Public Eye agents.
So not the real Thor 2099 then? But wait… how was he using the hammer? You know what, nevermind. It’s a super-mega-crossover event. Just go with it.
Apparently, the real Thor 2099, whoever he is, is not a nice guy.
Meanwhile, er, whatever this is, is happening.
Five bucks well spent right here.
2099 Alpha #1 hits stores on Wednesday.
