    Default New Column?

    Hi all,

    I'm toying with the idea of starting up a semi-regular column on the site entitled "Flashback Friday's" (obviously with a logo involving Flashback) whererin each column I highlight a past panel/page involving in Alpha Flight, the more obscure or forgotten the better and I'm just seeing if people would be interested in a) reading it and b) contributing to it, by e-mailing/private messaging me a favourite page/panel of AF lore and why they love it so much for me to publish?

    I know that Solicits and Previews tend to go live on a Friday morning so there may be week's when the front page gets a bit cluttered, but the name kinda doesn't fit any other day of the week.

    Anyway, any views/comments are welcome.

    I'd be interested in reading it, for sure.

    The possibility of contributing, via favourite page/panel with explanation of why, is distinct; by which I mean, I'm enthusiastic but non-committal (I've got too much going on right now to give you a "yes, I'd do it" without putting my honesty in question if/when i miss my deadline).

    I do think this is a really sweet idea, but i'd have to see a couple examples in print before I know for sure how it'll turn out.

    There'd be no deadline, people can just contribute as & when they like, as a one-off or as often as they like.

    Salad Sundays?

    That's a cool idea, Phil. Like FP, I'd have to see a couple, then decide what I could do.

    Well, you don't even have to give a reason to be fair... And if needs be it can be anonymous.

    Anyway, it was just an idea off the top of my noggin...

    Seems that Sunday was the 30th Anniversary of #1, so I definitely want to get this running I think.
