    Byrne's mouths are definitely distinctive.

    That was a great way to celebrate Byrne's Alpha Flight! I'm glad we're seeing some respect for it.

    One of the current trends of comics (especially Marvel) is reveling in their past by having current series taking place during a particular series "heyday". X-Men: First Class was one example. They've also had a few series written by a series "seminal" writer that takes place in an alternate universe right after they left the series. Claremont wrote X-Men Forever which took place after Uncanny #280 and New Mutants Forever after he initially left after #54. Iron Man just had a 4-issue mini written by David Michelinie which takes place after the end of his run (#257).

    I know Byrne has refused to work for Marvel ever again (and DC, if I remember correctly), but wouldn't it be nice if he were to do the "Forever" treatment on Alpha Flight, and write (and draw) Alpha Flight starting just after #28?

    Wishful thinking, I suppose.

    I would love that! Though what we really need is Byrne '84 to do it...

    100% agree with that article. Every one of the points talked about were reasons why I first fell in love with the title. It was groundbreaking for me then, and sadly absent now. When someone says wanting comics to be like they use to be is nothing more than nostalgia, I want to give them this link.

    You are a stupid seal with a small rooster. Translate that into french and you'll get it.
