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:

Captain Cannuck Volume 1 from IDW publishing
by Richard Comely and George Freeman
There have been remarkable advances since the seventies when these were published in Trade but they are still remarkable. The artistry, the story line, the whole package has a much higher quality than what I believe was offered by the MEGA comic publishers at that time. Sure, it is the nice way of Canada saying…America, suck it eh! but I have a place in my heart for it. Some of the back story has changed I think in the reboot but the artists taking over the franchise for Chapterhouse Comics are treating cannon with respect. In this volume you find out how Cannuck got his powers, how he feels a debt to his brother and how the Canadian Intelligence Service rocks…in their eyes. Lot of fun so three out of five points.
