I Miss Discount Comic Boxes

Alpha Flight Funnies

As some of you may remember, I’m a big Alpha Flight fan.  Yes, they are the laughing stock of the Marvel superhero jet-set, but I still love them.  Thanks to Rob over at The Aquaman Shrine, I stumbled across this series of Alpha Flight comic strips by James Duncan.  They are hilarious!  Below I’ve presented […]

Below are several DC Comics related keychains.  The […]
