    Default DK Marvel Encyclopedia

    Quick question for anyone that's got a copy of this -

    Any idea where the image used for Northstar comes from?
    I can't pin it down off the top of my head.

    I'm thinking a trading card, but am probably wrong...

    It's from two places:

    Marvel Masterpieces #2 Jun 1993


    The art is from the front of card #69 of the Marvel Masterpieces 1992 collection. Art by Joe Jusko.

    Here's a pic of what the heck Phil is talking about: http://alphaflight.net/gallery/showi...p?i=1633&c=158

    And this is actually a very funny question because years ago when I first got a copy, I went through it and took extensive notes on all the Alpha Flight entries and made a chart for each character and the source of the illustrations. Who knew years later someone would ask!?!!

    Whereas I'll probably dig out mine, just to check.

    No need to dig out cards. The set was reprinted in comic book format in 1993, with full page reproductions of the fronts of the little cards. That's the first listing I mentioned. Here is a link

    Of course! I don't know if I have the original card (still haven't checked), but I do have that.

    I've finally checked, and I'm pretty sure I don't have it.
    But I do have that 'comic' that collects it.

    I like cards, too, not sure I have any Northstar but I do have other AF. Two of Puck, I think, or 3.

    Maybe on the weekend I'll drag out my cards folders and copies of Marvel Masterpieces...
    Or maybe not.
