Though they are on my PB, these aren't actually my scans. Ordinarily I'd feel worse about the yoink, but...well...
FRED VAN LENTE WROTE MORE OLD SCHOOL ALPHA FLIGHT! FRED VAN LENTE WROTE MORE OLD SCHOOL ALPHA FLIGHT!
And I did not know of this. Pardon me whilst I squee.
I <3 them and all their dysfunction so very much.
You think we could get Van Lente working on an Alpha Flight: First Class now that he's done with Wolverine's book?

Title: Crystar, Crystal Warrior #11 (Marvel, 1985, 40 pages)
Story/Art: Jo Duffy/Ricardo Villamonte
Yes, I bought this on purpose. You wind up with stuff like this in your longboxes when you go through that phase of buying ANYTHING that has a favorite character in it.
Crystar. Comic-book tie-in to a toyline that never even rated a cartoon. It's 80's sci-sword and sorcery -- two factions vying for control of a planet. Good guys are crystal, bad guys are magma. It lasted for all of eleven issues. The big guest stars for the final issue? Alpha Flight.
Quality, right? But at least it has one of the sillier dimensional-transport scenes I've ever seen in a book.
11 dial-up unfriendly scans and a few panels beneath the cut.
( Is that a Quebecois in your dimensional pocket, or are you just happy to see me? )
And they all lived happily ever after or something, albeit with the three Alphans still stranded on Crystillium at the end of it all.
So what weird, crack-tastic stuff do you own just because a favorite character of yours has a guest-shot in it?
