    I think most people can read a comic in under a hour. Not much of an opening gambit really FP. I raise with 'I can read a comic in under a half hour and scratch my head at the same time'.

    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!

    Actually, I purchased a whole swack of used comics. That issue was in the pile, I had to work my way down to it (while also watching a couple of Thai action movies). Issue was good; I see where the confusion over whether Mac died in that issue comes from - seems to me, he did, once. Not the time where he got revived by Angels' blood, but before that. He was dead, not breathing, for quite a length of time, and his brain was only kept intact through Shaman's help.

    On a good note (see my "Bummed" thread to know the bad note), I just received, via Canada Post, 4 more Alpha Flight appearances; Uncanny X-men issues 421 and 422, and Wolverine issues 179 and 180.

    Yay!

    Diggin' the way Matt Nixon writes both Wolverine and his interactions with Alpha; great sense of humour!

    Yeah, I didn't mind Nixon's issues, or his Weapon X Wildchild oneshot.
    In a way it was a shame more wasn't done with Moss, although with Talisman still alive he's kinda not needed.

    To my knowledge (and I have only read 0.1 and 1 of Volume 4 so far), Talisman and Earthmover haven't even been mentioned by Shaman. Not sure if Freg is trying to distance himself from the two characters by ignoring them, but I think it is a real shame to not show them or show his (Mike's) concern for them. Canada is a big country - I question whether or not ONE magic-user would be enough for keeping the whole country safe.

    Yeah, I get that.
    I wasn't on about in this Volume specifically though, just the whole idea of Shaman having another protegé seemed redundant with Talisman around.

    They did tend to have something of an on-again, off-again relationship, Shaman and Talisman. As the Binder Of Spirits, what can she really be taught by him (other than patience and compassion)?

    I hear Shaman can bake a mean flan. I'm sure he could teach her some mad cooking skills!

    Oh, and I am now the proud(?) owner of the entire Volume 3 of Alpha Flight.

    They are...interesting.

    Yeah...I'll stick with 'interesting'.

    Volumne 3 filled me up with laughter, for a while. But by the time I was done reading them, they left me with a hollow feeling inside. I remember closing the last one up, and just staring at the floor blankly, numbly. Ugh.

    That numbness never went away. The way they were treated as some sort of joke, just sucked the life out of me.

    The jokes and humor theme aren't what bothered me.

    It was the sheer enormity of some of the plot holes.

    Did I miss how Sasquatch got free/escaped/avoided the Plodex in the first arc?
    Or the complete lack of common sense a (supposedly) brilliant person like Sasquatch would have in thinking, "Oh, if I change a pretty crucial point in history, everything will just turn out fine!" Heck, anyone who's seen Back to the Future knows better than that!
    Or the blase attitude everyone had as Nemesis continued to kill their teammates?

    But I'm sure this has all been discussed ad nauseum here before so I will stop now.
