When people think of Canada and comic books they often note that Superman’s creator Joe Shuster was Canadian even though Superman has become the quintessential American superhero.

Richard Comely, a Cambridge resident, goes one step further.  He is the the creator of Captain Canuck, a comic book character he created in 1975, who protects the True North strong and free. 

Want to check out his superhero? We have two collections of his groundbreaking Canadian superhero comics:
