I'm not sure if this FCBD issue was only available in Canada, so allow me to post it for all Scans_daily readers to enjoy.
I admit I'm not very familiar with Captain Canuck. At first glance, he seems like a generic Captain America expy/patriotic superhero. But the character is 40 years old this year and still remembered, and he's getting a reboot that looks pretty interesting. Here's a summary for the new series:Captain Canuck is a hero born in battle, tested in war, and granted the choice of how to use his incredible powers and advanced technology, which could alter the fate of the world.
Tom Evans is a brave but troubled Canadian soldier. When he and his brother Michael gain superpowers from an alien artifact, they both must work through a lifetime of differences to ensure their gifts are used for the betterment of all humankind. Thrust into battle by Equilibrium, a fledgling intervention agency, Tom must find his way as figurehead and hero Captain Canuck to save humanity- and his brother's soul- from the machinations of Mr. Gold... and even more dangerous forces that lurk in the shadows.
The complete reboot of the classic comic book hero featuring words and art by Kalman Andrasofszky, George Freeman and Ed Brisson, premieres with #0 on FCBD and the ongoing monthly later in May 2015. Don't miss out!( The FCBD issue contains 4 pages and character bios from the rebooted series, and 6 pages from the original Captain Canuck series first published in 1975. )
Captain Canuck(2015) is written and drawn by Kalman Andrasofszky, published by Chapterhouse comics (Facebook page here
