Toronto-based Chapterhouse Comics is a fairly new company in the comic book publishing game, but they are taking full initiative with what they want to do. And that is bring homegrown Canadian comic books to the world. They’ve begun with Captain Canuck and Northguard, which had already existed and were published independently for decades, and has continued with new modern heroes like The Pitiful Human Lizard and Die Kitty Die!

Namely in the form of their Chief Creative Officer, Hollywood actor Jay Baruchel (and my fellow Montrealer), star of Tropic Thunder, This Is The End and Disney’s The Sorceror’s Apprentice. Jay is not only the CCO, he is also the writer of Captain Canuck: Year One, a new series that reboots Comely’s unapologetically (for a change) Canadian superhero from the ground up and for a new audience.

And the next great Title Fight was born. Do the wacky shenanigans of a boy and his magical dog stand a snowball’s chance against the crew that brought us the song “Sugar, Sugar”? Let’s do this thing! Annnnd What’s New With You? Read more...
