    Default Merry Alpha Flight Christmas

    I got a couple of Alpha-related gifts this year:
    A Marvel Universe Puck figure as a stocking stuffer and, less directly, a scroll stating that my Marvel Universe by John Byrne Omnibus is on its way.

    Thought you guys would appreciate that.

    Merry Christmas!

    I thought the one I ordered was out a year ago and I'd missed it?

    As far as I can tell, it's sitting in the post office and my entire family is at the coast and unable to collect it. I just got back today, after the PO was closed.
    (And will be working during their opening hours.)

    (P.S.: I've added a YouTube link to the word 'coast'. If it works, remember: That is the exact spot I've just spent the last week swimming. And I saw the vid before I left.)

    Argh ignore me; It's the Alpha Flight by Byrne one that's not out yet.
    I read Tawmis' post and had forgotten the content of your original one!
    Apologies!

    Never mind - I was wondering if you were right. It's hard to find now, so I wondered if that was because it wasn't out yet.

    My Marvel Universe by John Byrne omnibus got here! Yay!

    I seriously just came home from work yesterday, and it was inside my house! Almost as if my father picked it up from the post office and has a key.

    Looks good, can't wait to get a chance to read it!

    Having now read it, there's more Alpha Flight content than I expected - there's an interview in the back, reprinted from Marvel Age, which talks about the Hulk swap-over. It's very positive about Alpha Flight.

    That's good that he finally had something positive to say...

    Well, he probably started saying negative things after that interview.
