    One thought on “Alpha Flight by John Byrne: Omnibus

    1. Sean Gibson

      Deeply controversial opinion alert: Canada is great. And so are Canadians. Okay, so, that’s actually not even remotely controversial, but, well, people are touchy these days. Maybe it’s simply a geographic proximity thing—growing up in Michigan and being a deeply devoted Red Wings fan, I couldn’t help but be influenced by our neighbors in the Great White North as a youth, including, but not limited to, the inadvertent slipping of “yeah, eh?” into my vernacular whenever the Stanley Cu [...]

      4.5 stars.I confess, I miss the glory days of John Byrne! Having recently re-read his runs on Fantastic Four and She-Hulk, I came to my reread of Alpha Flight with great expectations.And I was not disappointed. Wisely, Bryne spends the first 12 issues or so (re)acquainting us with the team and their backgrounds/personalities before getting the team together as a whole.And the characters are bright and lively enough to carry the book: the backgrounds of all the characters are given their moment t [...]

      John Byrne's Alpha Flight! It was a team that could have been the next X-Men or New Teen Titans, since it shares much of the style, focusing on the team as people, not just as action heroes. And, it managed to last for about 10 years in its first incarnation, but it was never as much of a hit as the others. Still, it's a lovely, dense, well-characterized comic. (My only issue with it was how infrequently the team was together under Byrne.)Preludes. The first two hundred pages of this omnibus are [...]

      I've been wanting to read this for quite awhile (decades), really only experiencing Alpha Flight from their brief appearances in X-Men. Finally reading this, I was quite satisfied to finally know and understand the team members. Byrne spends a surprisingly long time and page count on simply developing the characters. Each has an issue (or two) and they are all very distinct. It's a wonder they are able to work and stay together at all. Most of those issues are resolved, but not all, resulting in [...]

      I clearly remember the day I picked up the first issue of Alpha Flight from Coulson's Pharmacy in Lewiston NY (on the Canadian border) and fell in love with the crazy diverse characters. This was a golden age of sorts for Marvel when instead of finding 10-12 books with the same two characters you could get a real variety. Unfortunately, the Alpha characters are now relegated either to supporting cast in other stories or sacrificial lambs in big crossovers. Very sad.

    6. Chris Hansen

      This is a prime example of not being able to go home again. If I were to rate it solely on art it would get a 4 star rating but, sadly, the storytelling, overall, is disjointed. In a letter column published at the time these came out, Byrne admits he had, at best, 12 issues worth of stories to tell. There are over 30 co trained in this volume. He was right. I recommend this just for the brilliant art and how Byrne sets up the 1st Gay superhero. For Byrne fans only.

    7. Jean-nicolas Gagnon

      I didn't like Claremont style at the beginning of the book, but when Byrne's takes control everything comes together. The style of Byrne, really aged well in that book and I was really surprised by the depth he put in each characters . As a french canadian I was kinda shocked of the poor research he put in his french words and names but considering it was written 30 years ago I can understand that .
