    44 Alpha Pod Flight Alpha Flight Annual Number 1 Anthony Kuchar

    44 Alpha Pod Flight Alpha Flight Annual Number 1 Anthony Kuchar

    We're back with the first proper Alpha Pod Flight for a while! We talk about one of my favourite issues, the 1986 Annual, where there's some ghost stuff (very on brand for me) Diablo is written as a coward and incredibly Shaman doesn't Do A Shaman!

    Please forgive me for the cover art, I've not got Photoshop at the moment so I did my best using the Snipping Tool.

    Dungeon Pod Fun with Bill Hopkins

    Dungeon Pod Fun with Bill Hopkins

    Here's an Alpha Not Flight where I let Bill talk about his favourite ever comic, Dungeon Fun!

    If you're interested in buying the comic (which you should be, it's great) I think the best place to get it might be BHP Comics, who've put the first four issues out in a very handsome trade paperback: https://bhpcomics.squarespace.com/buy-books/dungeon-fun

    43 Alpha Pod Flight Immortal Hulk with Matt Finch

    43 Alpha Pod Flight Immortal Hulk with Matt Finch

    aka The Immortal Alpha Pod Hulk Flight

    Matt and me sat down to the little lake thing at the Barbican and occasionally remembered to talk about Alpha Flight, and the Immortal Hulk which alpha Flight have been turning up in, but mostly this is an exercise in tangents, which if you've already heard me talk about alpha Flight a lot is probably some kind of relief.

    41 Alpha Pod Flight Issue 42 Claire Napier

    I'm rejoined my Claire Napier, who helps me make some sense of my conflicted feelings about Alpha Flight #42, which I have to do without a copy of the comic in front of me becasue I'm either the worst podcaster or the absolute BEST podcaster.

    I'm on twitter here: https://twitter.com/grthink

    The Exploding Mess

    The Exploding Mess

    Here's the original recorded interview that the text from 'The Exploding Mess' was based on, minus a 10-second clip called 'Fall Damage' which was made by my son.

    The only person that comes out well in the recording is my daughter, I think, but that's normal.
