So when I moved to NYC from Portland a few years ago I had to leave a large portion of my comic collection behind. My old roommate has started shipping them to me a few boxes at a time, and it's been a fun trip digging through them as I'd more or less forgotten a lot of what I had. At any rate, in one of the boxes that arrived yesterday was a run of the old Captain Canuck comics that Richard Comely put out through Comely Comics. These are the old late 70s issues, not the later revamp issues, though I have some of those too, they're just not as fun.

They're kind of awesome and kind of awful at the same time. You've gotta dig the surrealism of them though, as the art is just... weird.


Anyway, Captain Canuck is rad. Deal with it.

Comley came into my local comic shop and was trying to sell CC stuff to the owner. Total hard sell. Used car salesmen style. Odd fellow, but you can't accuse him of not doing his best to get his work out there into the world.

Guess what new TPB (http://www.amazon.com/Captain-Canuck-Complete-Richard-Comely/dp/1613770812/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1323489003&sr=1-1) I saw at the comic store today, eh?

Oh sweet, I had no idea it had been collected. It looks like it's the entire original run then? The new style cover art doesn't wow me, but it's IDW, I guess they have to market it the way they have to market it. I think I'm only missing 2 of the original 15 so I don't know that I need this but this is still cool to see.

This came out today. Compiles the original run, which is the best one obviously.

Ha. 1975 was a good year for comics I think.
