    all I can think of is the standard 'what got you in the biz?' 'what about deadlines?' and the like. good luck getting the interview chance though!
    Hell was full, so I came back.

    Groovie, Thanks JC! Good luck in talking to him

    1). What is your overall feeling about the run you did on Alpha Flight v.1?

    2). What was it like to go back and draw these characters that you han't done in so long?

    The interview didn't really happen.

    However I did get to see the photocopied pencils to issue seven and the actual pencils for a couple of pages to issue eight.
    Dave has done a terrific job. I think he'd be good as a regular again.

    I'm looking forward to seeing his Alpha again. I also thought the inker was the weak part of his prior work, not his pencils.

    I agree, I was just looking over his old stuff, and thought the same thing. I'm really looking forward to seeing his stuff all these years later, with modern colours, modern inks, and modern printing. I will however be missing Clayton's pencils.

    I didn't much care for his pencils THEN, but I'm sure he's improved/streamlined his style in the interim years. I'm sure it'll be pretty darned good.

    I can sympathize with your viewpoint on his work back then as I was in the same mind set. BUT ...

    I actually got to see a lot of the original art of Dave's and can see his pencils clearly underneath the horrible inking job of Talaoc and I now firmly believe he did do an excellent job just the wrong man on top of him. Now i even own a couple pages of his.

    If I only had a scanner...
    Well Ben, here is a list of the Dave Ross pages I have,

    AF #36 pg 17 Shaman and the Great Spirits,
    AF #37 pg 12 Talisman is midwifing Snowbird w/ the Great Spirits appearing
    AF #37 pg 20 Talisman is about to have her tiara torn off by Pestilance.
    AF #38 pg 21 Snowbird inSquatch form, Shamn is wearing the Talisman headband , and a nice group shot . Interesting art note Dave blue pencil lines clearly show Box with those little butterfly things in the eyelids like Byrne drew 'em and the innker clearly ignored these details twice on the same page.
    AF #38 pg 22 Shaman/Talisman vowing to find Pestilence, and halfsplash of Atlantean coming out of the water at Tamarind Island House
    AF #39 pg 17 Captain America and a half splash of Namor

    I also have also have four West Coast Avengers pages and a Punisher page. Plus as I said before con sketches of Aurora, Northstar, Box and Shaman.

    As a quick little aside I also have pages from
    AF # 4 pg 21, with Sue Richards, Namor, a tiny Group shot in Sue's bubble
    pretty much everyone but the shredded Puck
    AF #19 pg 19, with Talisman and Puck

    Man, do I ramble on. Sorry folks.
