      The ifanboy wasn't a review so much as a press release, but the others were.
      They all liked it! Hey, Mikey!

      Phil, did you choose ones that liked it, or is everybody into it?

      A couple of people liked the colours, one of them calling them 'classic'.
      That's the big let-down of this issue for me, the only really big one. Modern comics colouring is my particular bęte noire at the moment, and I'm afraid this issue was no exception. I was reading it last night, looking at Snowbird's costume and the sky and thinking 'doesn't this colourist have a light blue'? Her costume should be an icy blue, like snow, to tie in with her name not navy.
      But that's me.

      (Obviously, I also disagree with the reviewer who called Puck 'annoying'. Maybe they'd seen the X-Men cartoon?)

      Otherwise, it's good to see people saying great things about this!

      I loved this bit from the last one:
      "Unfortunately, my old favourite Puck isn't back - it's explained by Shaman that he's off 'to a place even I dare not follow' (ie some Wolverine comic or other)."
      Hee hee... but Shaman's been in Wolverine comics before!

      Calvin: I called Susie a boogerbrain after school, and she went home crying.
      Hobbes: Goodness, why'd you do that?
      Calvin: I dunno. I was just teasing.
      Hobbes: It sounds like you hurt her feelings.
      Calvin: I didn't mean for her to take the insult personally!

      The iFanboy one links to a review.
      I chose ones that I found that happened to like it, but to be fair I haven't seen a review that hates it.

      Oh, you mean there where it says 'read review'?

      Woot! Another positive!

      I was curious about what different reviews had to say and checked out a few. All were positive if not downright glowing (even if the writer had little to no knowledge of Alpha Flight) except for one. Simon Furman, former Alpha Vol. 1 scribe (issues #110-112,114-130) had this to say:

      Having steered Alpha Flight’s destiny myself for a couple of years, I’m always glad to see Canada’s finest back (and eager to see them thrive in good/capable hands). But, true to expectations (based on my immersion into Chaos War #3), this is a misguided exercise, with a lot of standing around talking and vacillating (will they/won’t they help these Great Beasts — who cares?) and, yep, four characters ‘back from the dead’.
      I almost cried at the wholesale, shoulder-shrugging ease Guardian & Co. came back to the land of living. At one point, Sasquatch wonders about the dead Puck, only to be told by Shaman, “I tried, but he slipped away to a place even I dare not follow.” Clever Puck, I thought, clever Puck.


      Ow.

      Just to make up for posting that really negative review, here's one that blows it (and even all the positive reviews) out of the water.

      (note: contains excessive swearing)

      He's summing up my feelings very well. Except:

      He is oh so wrong about that. Plenty of people have been long-awaiting that!

      This gave me a moment of fridge logic. If destroying the Dream Dimension had any effect at all on your sleeping/waking state, wouldn't it wake you up permanently, instead of putting you to sleep? (Just like destroying the underworld made everyone come to life, since there was no place for the dead to go.)

      He mentioned the flying trike. I loved that, too, and have forgotten to mention it 'til now!

      And, uh, who's Mark Mackner?

      If he's accurately describing the story then you should be taking up the logic (or lack of) with Marvel and not him.

      You're the one quoting him, don't you know?

      I kinda meant to blame Marvel for that...

      After years of seeing my quoting style, you think that makes any difference?

      Um, really, I got linked to him from the post above mine, and his blog keeps calling him a 'movie legend' or something. So I'm wondering who's this legend I've never heard of?

      "I can still recall old Mister Barnslow getting out every morning and nailing a fresh load of tadpoles to the old board of his. Then he’d spin it round and round, like a wheel of fortune, and no matter where it stopped he’d yell out, “Tadpoles! Tadpoles is a winner!” We all thought he was crazy. But then we had some growing up to do."
