...you know, being that he's front and center and everything. I flipped through the book, didn't really see the Captain doing much, so I passed on it.
Of course, now I'm kicking my own ass. Since finding out a few weeks back that WotI has a Facebook page, and joining it, picking up news about the project has been far easier.
Earlier today, a gentleman named Nigel Flood pointed out that a group called the Celtic Clan was appearing for the first time in WotI #3. And here they are, shaking hands with the good Captain.
Aw, man! The Captain appears to be in a position of authority, no less! Now I'm going to have to find a way to get all of these...Click on the picture for the full article as well as another panel in which the Captain appears.
- See the dude in blue at bottom left on the single panel? That's Winnipeg's Axiom-Man for those who are not familiar with him. More on him another day.
- It's quite odd to see Captain Canuck standing next to Faust on the cover. If you've never had the...uhm...pleasure of coming across it, Faust is the most violent, sex-filled comic I've ever read. It would make the Joker blush. Don't accidently leave it on your mom's coffee table.
- On the other hand, it's extremely cool to see the Captain standing with Mr Monster. That's a character that I intend to look into much more deeply, even though his Canadian-ness has pretty well been stripped away.
- The International Heroes site provides a scorecard based on promotional art. It includes other Canadian characters such as Black Flag from Legion Unleashed and Captain Canuck West, but I don't know for certain that they actually appear in the book.
