As we race towards the finish line of the Epic Canadiana #2 Kickstarter, here is an image from the story “One Flew Over,” by Jason Wilkins and Jayleen Weaver. It’s a sequel to their Nite-Flyer and Nitro-Girl story from Epic Canadiana #1, and features a pastiche of the classic Canadian adventurer Brok Windsor.
As we mentioned before, a few enterprising individuals are publishing impressive anthologies that collect the adventures of classic Canadian superheroes. The first collection focused on Nelvana of the Northern Lights, perhaps Canadian’s most well-known hero from the Golden Age of Comics, and now they’ve started kickstarter campaigns for two other iconic classic Canadian heroes: Johnny Canuck, Canada’s intrepid hero of WWII, and Brok Windsor, Flash Gordon-esque explorer of the magical Land Beyond the Mists.

We here at Cloudscape are big fans of all kinds of Canadian comics, including the Golden Age Canadian Whites that were published back in the 40s. We’ve already published Epic Canadiana #1, an anthology pastiching such classic characters as Nelvana of the Northern Lights and Johnny Canuck, and are currently working on #2. We’re also exciting to see people reprinting the original stories. Earlier this year, a collected Nelvana was published, and a copy of that exciting book is currently available in the Cloudscape library. Now two more books are prepared, one featuring Johnny Canuck, Canada’s Captain America, and the other about Brok Windsor, a Canadian explorer who finds himself trapped in the fantastical Land Beyond the Mists. Stop by their Facebooks to learn more about both these compelling projects.
