Captain Canuck: The Money Run
Created by Richard Comely and Ron Leishman.
Captain Canuck has been working long hours on grueling cases with Keybec and he’s got a low tolerance for his boss right now. The boss that has been keeping critical information regarding someone stealing from CISO. That someone has to be a highly trained agent of a foreign power considering how much they’ve already stolen.
Canuck and Keybec spring a trap they didn’t even know they were setting for the guy and just manage to nab him before he hijacked a plane with a woman hostage. Hmmm, 1980s but sounds like today.
I love this comic franchise. It is the Great White North “Get out ya Hoser!” to Marvel Universe.
My favorite source for Canuck is:
But in order to get retro volumes you might have to resort to Amazon searches for the best deals:
Captain Canuck Issue 003
Andrasofszky, Kirk, Alleyne, Brisson and Hepburn.
Captain Canuck, Tom Evans, is taking the Equilibrium fleet out to rescue Michael Evans, his brother. Apparently when Tom Evans was a Canadian Army Lieutenant he had to do something similar. By the end of the issue he is is in another time-line. Not sure about how the story lines are being deployed but I’m still a fan.
The art is outstanding and so is the healthy dose of Canadian pop culture. Of the three story lines floating in this issue I will say that I’m more drawn in by the second one, where Tom is dropped into the Arctic to rescue his brother after Michael has made a tremendous discovery. Aleph.
Four out of five stars guys. Make a bigger issue or split out the story lines into separate books. They are starting to blend.
Captain Canuck 002 Ongoing
by Andrasofszky and Team, Published by Chapter House Comics
This issue picks up where the reboot issue #1 left off. Canuck is trying to rescue a bunch of oil workers from a burning rig that has been attacked by some golden goo that is sentient. His team has been roughed up but are still supporting. Meanwhile, his brother Michael has fallen off the grid but apparently is under somebody’s mind control.
The story is good and there is a back up story in the second half of the issue. That one is good too although it seems to be alternate universe Canuck and some aquatic bipeds fighting over an oil rig. Oil seems to be a big theme here. The artwork is top notch.
I award this outing with 4 entertainment thumbs up. One note is that I seem to have an alternate cover and I keep having to scratch my Canuck itch through Amazon. Enjoy!
