  1. Alpha Flight vol 1 #1-12 is a golden year of comics. I would also say the backup stories in #2-11, giving the original team members' origins are part of that. They had no backstory before their appearance in X-Men, and it really let me connect to the team so fast. Love it. So it's hard to narrow down my favorite Alpha Flight to smaller than #1-12.

    But I have an incredibly soft spot for #6 (Snow Blind), #9-10 (Sasquatch vs Super-Skrull because OMG THAT FIGHT WAS PHENOMENAL), and #11-12. (which I read in opposite order because I didn't find #11 on the racks at the time, so um, Spoilers younger me!)

    And yeah, I ain't really a horror guy, which made Mantlo's run hard for me to enjoy. I tried and hung in until #50, which is much longer than I probably should have. Just inertia of my collecting, it's always harder for me to drop a book once I've started it.

    Another excellent episode, my ... Pilers? Till next time!

  2. The app has a very unique structure and really feel, giving it some good differentiation. On prime of that, they provide “PointsBetting” — a really completely different 온라인카지노 sort of betting that’s high upside and high danger, and not currently out there anyplace else. [newline]Users can even expect plenty of promo and bonus provides, lots of them artistic, and glorious customer support with 24/7 stay chat out there. The app makes use of Kambi for its back-end software program and danger administration. This brings a lot of betting options and overall fairly aggressive pricing.
