Alpha Flight #22 (1985)

I’m sure when he created this issue, John Byrne didn’t realize he was courting controversy, but it turned out to be a hot one.  At least, I remember at the time people being upset at the big fat lady.  But I guess I could be remembering wrong.
Also, you can’t say he doesn’t have good taste in fighting styles. She uses boob smothering.

Aurora has a full-blown schizophrenic episode and her brother takes her to a close friend for help.  Her close friend happens to run a circus.  That circus houses an enormous woman called Pink Pearl.

There’s also a really skinny contortionist called Human Skeleton, but thin isn’t controversial.

Creator: John Byrne
Grade: C+
