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."

Never enough Flight talk!

I am extremely pleased and totally invested in listening to these 3 individuals discussing my favorite comic book series!!!
This team were my best friends during my awkward adolescence school years, so I love being reminded of why they were so important to me!!!
Carry On!!!

Couldn’t stop listening

I’ve been a fan of Alpha Flight since 1990 when I found my cousin’s Alpha Flight Collection. This Canadian kid was fully captivated by the stories of the X-Men “type team” that had adventures all across my homeland. I’ve made it a goal to collect each Alpha Flight appearance and have archived them on a Pinterest board with over 3,000 pins.
This fan REALLY appreciates this podcast. Couldn’t stop listening as other people talked about my favourite characters. One of the best parts is hearing the stories from behind the pages because I didn’t know that much about the comic industry.
Thank you as big as a Canadian MOOSE!

Awesome podcast for fans of comics

The Flight Stuff takes a look at the lesser talk about alpha flight comic series and it’s very informative. Not only do they give information about the Canadian super hero team they give unbiased opinions on the stories and art and I like that about this show they can find stuff that they enjoy while still critiquing the things that they feel don’t work. So if your a comic fan in general give them a listen!!!!
