    Wow, that second one is nice!

    And the upside-down Maple Leaf! The symbolism! The pathos! The small furry thing crawling up my leg!

    Cool to know we'll get him in the comic. (Assuming, of course, that cover can be taken literally.)

    OK, those two covers are just too cool. They need to be posted in more places than here, that's for sure! Great scott, I like how Eaglesham is coming on.

    ? probably?

    So iconic. But not ironic.
    But kinda laconic.

    Still my fave cover of the entire run(s)

    I first posted just my favouritest.
    I thought I'd branch out a little.

    I like the words on this one, and find them memorable:

    Though the artwork's always been a bit cluttered for a cover for my tastes.

    This has both, though:

    It is mysterious. Spooky. Creepy. Even, kooky. Alltogether ooky.
    I also like the twenties flapper style of her.

    And this one, because it's cool, and also to show I'm not *just* a Byrne fanboy:

    I can't find a sig on the the cover for #67. The artist on the story was Hugh Haynes, but that don't look like his work on the cover. Probably wrong.

    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    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!

    Pretty sure it's Jim Lee.
    Wait a sec...
    Sorry that took so long. There's no credit easily findable, even opening the issue, but 69 has a sig for "McLaurin + Lee X 2" and is similar in style.

    Thought it may be Lee, but looking over his covers he normally always signed. The other issue Haynes did (#63) also has no sig. Oh well!

    Cover of Alpha Flight #67 is uncredited in the issue. However, look in your copy of issue #66, which has a preview of the cover for issue #67, and you'll see it is credited clearly for Carl Potts and Jim Lee.

    Love,

    Ah, thanks! I looked in later issues for a 'sorry we didn't credit', but not the issue before.
    I knew that I knew that was Jim Lee!
