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!
Back in September, something truly magical happened: Marvel published a brand new Alpha Flight book! That’s right, Canada’s best returned for a special oneshot, Alpha Flight: True North, boasting an all Canadian creative team. We all loved it here at Flight Stuff HQ, so we set aside some time to record an episode solely focused on True North and what makes it such a fantastic and moving tribute to Alpha Flight.
So take a journey with us into the Great White North once again as we dive into Alpha Flight: True North!
As always, thank you for listening!
