THE FLIGHT STUFF – Episode 17: How Heather Got Her Groove Back

Welcome to The Flight Stuff: a podcast about Canada’s premiere superhero team!

In 1983, comic book writer and artist John Byrne lifted his original team, Alpha Flight, from the pages of Uncanny X-Men and dropped them into their own, eponymous series. Over the course of 11 years, the Canadian super team — Guardian, Sasquatch, Puck, Snowbird, Shaman, Aurora, Northstar, and others along the way — battled foes large and small, with adventures steeped in social commentary and uniquely Canadian issues and themes.

Join comic book enthusiasts Liam, Adrianna and Doug as they make their way through the original series issue by issue, character by character, Byrnism by Byrnism, with occasional detours through Canadian cultural history. So sit back, listen up and get right with the Flight!

 

Greetings, Alphans! We’re back with a brand new episode of The Flight Stuff!

Episode 17 focuses on two issues: #33-34. The team discusses the Alpha Flight debut of the great Sal Buscema, Bill Mantlo’s ongoing Heather and Puck problems, a very strange flashback to Heather and Wolverine’s first meeting, and much more!

Next episode: ALPHA FLIGHT: TRUE NORTH!

 

As always, thanks for listening!
