      It's nothing to do with Alpha Flight (well, technically he was a member at the time), but I loved the write-up of Incredible Hulk #181:

      "A new hero crashes a fight in the Canadian wilderness between the Hulk and Wendigo in this story by writer Len Wein and artist Herb Trimpe. His name was Wolverine, and he was never heard from again."

      Truly, if it hadn't been for that issue, i never would have become much of a comics collector.

      Also being truthful, I HATED Alpha Flight # 12. When i first read it, I mean. But the angst of it hooked me.

      That's 75th place amongst people registered at CBR.

      I can't stand the boards there I'm afraid so won't get involved.

      For all of us, methinks. But I was surprised to see an Alpha Flight issue in there at all.

      Oh, I haven't joined the boards or anything. I usually just read their Comic Book Urban Legends page (but not usually the comments). It's pretty good for the history and stuff.

      I'm not even sure I know how I saw the 75 of the best page; I think I may've noticed it on the side bar, and gone to check for Alpha.

      Oh yeah, totally - any AF is usually good AF.

      Had it been anywhere else I may have registered and voted but while I enjoy reading CBR most of the time I don't dare going near comments.

      I wonder if it'd help if you told Brian Cronin that, and your reasons why?

      THIS is the only forum I'm on, and there's a good reason. I used to post on Linkara's blog fairly regularly until he moved to a new site where I had to register with Disqus to comment.
      There were some amazingly bad comments on there, back when I read them every week (good ones too, of course - let's not overgeneralise).

      I registered at CBR and probably posted there 1 or 2 times. I share Phil's sentiments about those boards, to some extent.
      I do recommend the site http://www.cxpulp.com/forum.php which graciously offered to host the OHOTMU board after comixfan.net shut down. I think you'd like it there. It's free!
