Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
Nice images!I always liked Shaman's original costume, the orange and green was original.The original costumes of AF, just the LOOK of that team is so fantastic, IMO.A lot of the themes were similar, Guardian, Shaman, Northstar/Aurora, Snowbird,Puck---very simple yet they looked so cool together.......and Sasquatch and Marrina brought a rougher, more organic look. I also like the NEW Defenders line-up of the 80s because of how cool they looked together. The AF, New Mutants, and New Defenders stories were always secondary (if that) to just how COOL the line-ups looked together on the covers.....how could I NOT plunk down 60-cents at the 7-11 just for the great cover?!?Then came the late 80s HORRIBLE recreations of the Alpha Flight and New Mutants and X-men costumes---all the pockets and pinks/purples, baubles, and whatnots. Hard to believe anyone thought that looked good.starfoxxx
