Alpha Flight Of Fancy: When Will Canada’s Great Creators Get A Crack At Canada’s Greatest Super-Team?

John Byrne

Canada is comics’ secret super-power. As far back as 1938, when Toronto-born Joe Shuster created Superman with Cleveland’s Jerry Siegel, Canada has been a vital partner -- a Wild Child to America's Sabtretooth. (Age of Apocalypse version.)

”We have so many great artists and writers to choose from, it’s such an embarrassment of riches,” says Ty Templeton, a writer and artist who has worked for most major publishers and on most big name characters, and who knows just about everyone in the business. When he says Canada's creative community boasts an embarrassment of riches, he knows what he's talking about.

This week, DC released their solicitations for September, and with them, the eyebrow-raising art for Catwoman #0, in which artist Guillem March -- an artist we're generally pretty fond of here at ComicsAlliance -- poses the title character in a way that we can charitably refer to as "anatomically dubious." Featuring a high-angle shot of Catwoman in which her face, breasts and butt are on display at the same time (plus a single foot, for those of you who are into that), it honestly loo

youngerself10001


Cartoonist Kate Beaton is best known for her Hark! A Vagrant webcomics poking fun at the absurdity of history, and while her style has gotten more refined over the years, some of our earliest favorites were her "younger self" comics where she tried to explain her adult life -- and her evolution into a professional illustrator -- to herself as a child. The final panel of the above cartoon is particularly interesting to reflect on four years later, when the self-effacing Beaton has not only illustrated ca
