    Lee's AF run was before he refined his style. His artwork is quite different than what it is now, and people should know what to expect (or lower their expectations) accordingly, if they haven't seen those earlier issues.

    We should post the marvel cards of Alpha Flight since they are always original designs

    The two Gruenwald depictions I have are from Hulk 278-79 ? Hulks amnesty, he may have done more, but they are the ones I'm aware of.

    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    True but when you look back through Vol 1 Lee's work is the best the series saw, even better than Byrne's if you ask me.

    Ah, yes, Gruenwald as artist...I forget he occassionally penciled, and never actually noticed his work on Hulk.
    I always thought he had something against Alpha...he never used them in his writing...the absence of the twins in the speed race in Quasar was quite conspicuous. Good eye, Del.

    If we all liked the same things, it would be a pretty dull world.

    I don't have all of them, but I did notice a progression to Lee's style in the AF books I do have. He's not my favorite AF artist, as you can tell.

    Inking was a bigger problem after #28, IMO, with Talaoc and Portico poor choices who rarely enhanced the artwork.

    I'd agree withthat, the inking after the new team took over at #29 really detracted from the story and probably made some more critical of what on the whole were readable tales. I know the inking gave me a bad impression of Mignola and I found it difficult to understand how he was lauded later on.
