    Of course this is the first Fanexpo Im NOT going to - sonofa!

    I went last year and went to the Q&A with Joe Q with one question on my mind and that was to ask about Alpha Flight. I was beat to it by another person but was thankful someone asked about them.

    I think Marvel is finally clueing in that if you come to a con in Canada, you better have something to give the Alpha fans.

    That said, its not just Marvel. I can look high and low around Fanexpo and there is very little AF merchandise, including comics, for sale or on display. I initially thought that a comic convention in Canada, there's got to be lots of AF merch I can buy and I always head home with a few comics - thats all.

    I'd love to get action figures, toys, busts whatever but none of that stuff is ever available and I know its out there. I see it on this site.

    Part of the trouble with the maple leaf is the perspective / the wrapping around his body.
    But that's only part.

    Apart from Guardian being there, it looks to me like the team as Byrne quit the book (and since Talisman joined after his death, that particular line-up doesn't make sense in any 616 timeline).

    Default A New Flight

    Hi everyone! Could anyone please get a copy of one of these for me? I'm a long time Alpha Flight fan living on the other side of the Atlantic ocean, and when I saw this cover I really got pumped 'cause I think for me this is the best and most faithfull rendition of the Flight since de Byrne era, not to dismiss some other good ones of late like the Omega Flight run. But this one's definitely caught my attention.
    So, if there's anyone out there willing and able to be at the con. Please make mine Marvel! Thanks.

    P.S: High hopes for CB Cebulsky's panel today! Fingers crossed...

    Digger,
    Can't help but notice that you live where my Dad was born. All the way back in 1923...

    So who's your daddy? Not that I'd know of him but I am 4th generation in town so I could look him up in our history books (no age joke meant)....just out of curiosity sake.

    I had the very special honor of getting Phil Jiminez to sign my copy today at the Marvel Booth at NYCC 2010. Weird thing was both Stan Lee (yes, that Stan Lee) and Phil from alphaflight.net were both a few steps away from me at the time - Stan was on the Marvel stage signing autographs and Phil from alphaflight.net was a few people behind me on the line.

    When I showed the comic to Phil Jiminez, he told me it was the first time he had seen it in print! I pointed out my favorite parts of the cover: notably the pointy ears on Northstar (though it's sad that one has to distinguish this minor issue from so many other depictions of Northstar with rounded ears), the green magical flames from Talisman as well as the snowy effects on the lower part of the cover. Phil Jiminez then sort of dropped into a bit of a pedagogical mode, telling me that the snow wasn't his, just the colorist and then started to really emphasize how a colorist can have a big effect on the finished artwork. He was like, 'No, no I really want to make a point here about the colorist...' I agreed with him of course, and we both agreed that the snowy effects were pretty cool. Then he admitted that he heard he got the maple leaf wrong on Guardian's costume. I tried to explain how it was supposed to look, but he insisted that he had copied the shape from a Byrne image, and owed the misshapennes of the maple leaf to the fact that Guardian's stance was not exactly straight on. I really think that he did make an attempt to draw the maple leaf element of the costume, but nevertheless it came out looking odd.

    Well it sure was cool to meet the guy!

    Love,
    rplass

    Cool story, rplass.

    Then he admitted that he heard he got the maple leaf wrong on Guardian's costume.
    Did he hear that from somebody ahead of you in line, or has he been reading this site?

    rplass,

    Im just amazed you knew what Phil from the site looks like. I live near PWalk from the site but I wouldnt know him even if I sat next to him in Fargo de Chow or Chicki and Petes. I know what Ben looks like cuz of his wedding pics but I still wouldnt know him like that if we sat next to each other on a bus.

    @Mos

    You should keep away from those buses. Not only are they killing people (at least, at my work, we're always worried about 'what if so-and-so got hit by a bus?'), but apparently they're taking away your ability to recognise people.
    Dangerous things, buses.

    Ah, we voluntarily sent pics to each other for the purpose of meeting up, which we eventually did!

    He smells a lot better than I thought he would, by the way. And he's completely different in person than what you'd think - he's actully a really nice guy! Here's a pic of us together:



    We actually toasted, "To Alpha Flight - the greatest superhero team the world has ever known!" heh, what a great moment!

    Love,

    Two guys looking as unshaven as me, but I didn't go anywhere.
