Alpha Flight #35-38 (1986): 1st Pestilence

OK, it’s official: I hate this comic.

Marrina is captured by Attuma and rescued by Namor and Alpha Flight.

Snowbird has been gradually going more and more crazy by inches, and Shaman, Talisman and Dr. Strange help her shed the influence of the Northern Gods, but in so doing unleash a new villain called Pestilence.

Apparently, he’s based on a real person. But I just don’t care. This all feels disjointed and familiar. Nothing seems new.

Future author/illustrator Matt Sewell gets a letter printed. (Is this the same guy who wrote and drew some cool books about owls and other birds?)
