    Don't worry, I would never spoil anything so important like Aurora now has a new personality, that of the volleyball "Wilson" from the movie Castaway.

    Or that Mac and Heather's baby was adopted by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie then immediately traded to Madonna for a 2nd round draft pick in 2016.

    Or that Sasquatch makes extra money on the weekends as a member of the Ice Capades homage to Masters of the Universe (Yep, he plays Beast-Man...who knew Walt could skate so gracefully?).

    How could anyone think of spoiling such big developments as those?

    Just as long as you don't spoil the part where it turns out Gary Cody was really Old Man Withers, who runs the haunted amusement arcade.

    I feel sorry for anyone who gets that twist spoiled!

    And he would have gotten away with it, if it weren't for the meddling of that surprising new Alpha member, Dyna-Mutt!

    But yeah...we wouldn't want to spoil that for anybody.

    Gentlemen please, I am a bit concerned that one of you might let slip (inadvertently) the existence of the panel where in front of the assembled team, Aurora states
    "My name is Fritz'
    These aren't real tits
    and I work for the CIA"
    and as of this moment we don't know for definate that the panel will ever be used.

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    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!

    Okay, okay...you people are all comedians!

    On another note (any-hoo...), I just heard back from mailordercomics.com, who kindly responded to my emailed inquiry. They tell me that the dsitributer who sends out the Alpha Flight comics to them, has been massively shorting them every month!

    I'm thinking about this, and it makes me wonder if that means that more people are buying Alpha Flight than said distributor planned for...if so, there is at least a ray fo sunshine beneath my clouds somewhere!

    (Mind you, that ray of sunshine is probably Puck's new power manifesting...every time he eats Skittles candies, he breaks out in a beaming smile and sings showtunes!)

    Did they offer you any sort of compensation for your misfortune? After all, you fulfilled your end of your contract with them by paying them in advance. Unless there is a clause somewhere that "items may not always be shipped on time" or somesuch, then I feel they should make it up to you somehow (extra discount, free shipping, credit, etc.).

    (See, I can be serious! And please, call me Shirley.)

    Hey. Do you work for the post office? "items may not always be shipped on time" That's the post office motto.

    No, no compensation offered. This isn't the first time that items I have ordered have taken an extra month to get to me, either. Not sure about the "not on time" clause, but I'll check around.

    Yeah, customer service doesn't seem to mean much anymore, does it? best part is, they admit they now have all the Alpha Fligth # 2s they asked for...but they won't send me mine until my next order is due to be shipped, which is about two weeks from now.

    So, basically, not only do they pass the savings on to me (I do get my comics at a discount below cover price), but when THEY get screwed over, they pass THAT on to me as well!

    Ah well...I'm a Flight fan, I should be used to getting the shaft.

    If I said 'Shut your mouth' here, would it be misunderstood?
