JB - Please, do what you want. I can say I'll enjoy it and be grateful for it. I'm loving Elsewhen. It feels to me like 25 issues in you've really just gotten started. You've laid a foundation and seem to have gotten the characters to where you want them. Kitty as a normal mutant teenager, Jean dealing with missing years of her life, Logan not healing instantly, Scott as the leader, etc...
Probably a good thing that we all always want more, more, MORE! Now, how to clone Mr. Byrne and have 100 versions of him doing 100 different titles...
As to Alpha Flight - a one shot with a dozen hanging subplots would be a good shot at all who complain about Mr. Byrne leaving titles hanging mid-story (came about due to the mess when JB went to do Superman and from what I understand Shooter told him to get lost immediately). Same with Elsewhen - I keep fearing a day I'll come here and find a 'site not found' error. But regardless at least we've had a lot of fun here. Can't beat the price or the quality - how odd, a freebie that is high quality.
JB, I wish Marvel Studios would take you on as an executive producer/consultant for when they inevitably reboot the X-Men for the movies. (And that you'd agree to it of course.) Your instincts for storytelling and your understanding of these characters are unmatched.
JB: But here’s where the sadistic part kicks in: I would play it literally as an issue of ALPHA FLIGHT, coming into a story in progress, and salting the setting with subplots. Plus a cliffhanger ending that might never be resolved.
Ok… here goes… I will admit that I *wouldn’t* enjoy an issue that leaves a huge unresolved cliffhanger! I’m sure I’d love the issue itself but the cliffhanger would drive me crazy… waiting a month for the X-men cliffhanger I’d be fine with, but never getting resolution would be just awful (like that feeling I get when a good TV series ends on a season cliffhanger and gets cancelled. Argh!)
