Captain Canuck

For the moment, this is still "Under Construction" (largely because I may or may not get a access to a scanner in the near future and can add graphics).

    Captain Canuck #1

    Who is Captain Canuck, you ask? Captain Canuck was a Canadian comic book published in the mid-'70s and the early '80s. A mixture of superhero, James Bond, and science fiction, the series was about a costumed hero/government agent who battled evil throughout Canada, the world, and beyond, in what was then the future (the 1990s). Not the most successful of comic books, it's true, but the character has achieved a certain cult status, with an audience recognition that outstrips the short run. In 1993, the character had a short-lived relaunch, changing everything but the costume; I'll add more about that as I go, but this web page is primarily devoted to the one, the original, CAPTAIN CANUCK.

    ** WEB PAGE **

    Welcome to a web page devoted to Captain Canuck!

    Perhaps I should call this "a" Captain Canuck web page. There have been one or two others, including an official one related to the mid-90s relaunch (but, as near as I can tell, it's pretty defunct) as well as an unofficial one (but, likewise, it seems uncompleted -- possibly even dead). So, for the time being, I'll call this "The Web Page" and, if someone objects, let me know and I'll change it.
