FW Team-Up: Spider-Man and Alpha Flight

July 1st is Canada Day, and to celebrate, Siskoid is launching FW Team-Up, and the Irredeemable Shagg is joining him to talk about Marvel Team-Up Annual #7, starring Spider-Man and Canada's premiere super-team, Alpha Flight! Fire & Water was built around the whole idea of team-ups, it's about time it had a show dedicated to the network's philosophy!

Highlights from Marvel Team-Up Annual #7, by Louise Simonson, Paul Neary and Sam de la Rosa:
The Collector's Arabian Nights collection:
Spider-Man is caught in the web of Alpha Flight's drama.
Marrina's in the story, so of course, so are the Plodex. And Sasquatch shows his strength, but does he know who the real enemy is?
Spider-Man and Puck team up to resolve the story.
A Walt Simonson swipe?
The issue's "friendly farewell". But how friendly?
And because we must, some sexy action between black-suited Spider-Man and the slinky Black Cat!
Theme: "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" by Andy Sturmer.

Bonus clips from: "Blame Canada" by Trey Parker; and "O Canada" by Calixa Lavallée, English lyrics by Robert Stanley, from the French original by Adolphe-Basile Routhier.

the print quality (or is it just the colouring?) is quite different at this point, I see. Paler, less saturated. Perhaps it was early in the change over to offset printing from the older letterpress machines. It's like "we're trying something new here but it'll take a while to get the bugs out."
As an aside I think the bright, traditional superhero costumes were chosen to look great on the old print method with its 64 colour palate.

I think Marvel didn't go Flexographic for a few more months.
