    Default The Superhero Book

    Not sure if this is the proper place for this; we'll see.

    Purchased The Superhero Book, and Alpha Flight is in it.

    Scans and a brief write-up here:

    Its a neat book, but with very few photos, and the few that are used are very small.

    I admire your passion to the Flight.

    - If you tweeted at least 50,000 people and each of them bought an Alpha Flight issue... Marvel may take notice.
    - If you tweet-screamed an additional 50,000 and THEY bought one each also... that would definitely work.
    - Facebook John Byrne... get him back on board.
    - A petition could work. I started one back in the 80's to save the whales... and they're still here!!! I can't help but feel partly responsible.
    - Depends on your starting point. If its the Northern U.S., definitely come join us, the weather's great. If its Brazil, you may not GET here until next March.
    - I think its about time for all of us to march on Marvel.
    - Yes, throw things. Definitely throw things. Big things... directly at any writer who's ever killed off an Alphan.
    - Yes, make threats. Definitely make threats. Big threats... directly at any editor-in-chief who's ever canceled an Alpha Flight series. Except for volume 3... that was more of a mercy killing than a cancellation.
    - ... and borrow... and steal.
    - I can't make any promises... but I'll take a ham and swiss on rye bread.
    - Keep this as a last resort. But if you decide to go for it, do it before you march to Canada... our exchange rate sucks right now.

    Hope this helped.
    The Flight Forever !

    I saw that book, well, the first printing at my LCS. If anyone wants a copy, let me know and I'll pick it up.
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    I gots it off Amazon.com. Fairly cheap. And it'll keep me reading for months, at 463 pages. It doesn't deal with just comic book appearances, it also talks about tv and movie appearances, toys, etc.

    You realise that would include John Byrne, right?

    Since it covers different companies, that's probably why there's so few photos - copyright issues.

    It always makes me wonder why Byrne fans (including myself!) are okay with the fact that he killed off characters.
    Maybe because they were his own? Maybe because when he did it, it wasn't to replace them with craptastic, soulless characters that we were forced into reading/dealing with?
    Or maybe it's because when he did it, it was to fit a story, or a story to fit the death? It was done decently when Byrne did it?

    I just am not sure.
