Richard Comely attributes Captain Canuck’s particular place in comics history to the fact that in 1975, his book was the only full-color self-published book distributed to the mass market. But of course, the character’s status as Canada’s premiere superhero didn’t hurt its legacy either. “Media and public attention have been tremendous for the series since it appeared in 1975,” Comely said. “’Canada Post’ put Captain Canuck on a stamp (1995), he appeared on the cover of ‘Time’ magazine (1997) and a number of other Canadian publications. I think all this demonstrates that Canadians love having their own superhero. After all, superheroes started with Superman and half of the creative team of Superman was Canadian born Joe
Shuster.” In 2010, Richard, as well as artists George Freeman and Claude St. Aubin were inducted into the Canadian Comic Book Creator Hall of Fame at the Joe Shuster Awards on the 35th Anniversary of the debut of Captain Canuck. In 2012, details are emerging about the moving forward in production of a Captain Canuck feature film.

Koi’s are ornamental varieties of domesticated common carp (Cyprinus carpio) that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens.
Koi varieties are distinguished by coloration, patterning, and scalation. Some of the major colors are white, black, red, yellow, blue, and cream. The most popular category of koi is the Gosanke, which is made up of the Kohaku, Taisho Sanshoku, and Showa Sanshokuvarieties….but these things simply do not apply towards our next individual. Some say he’s a figment of imagination of drunk university students, as others swear that this individual has swings from the rooftops to battle crime within the streets of Kitchener. Regardless of these things, the Koi has heard the underground rumors that Dr. Stevil will be in town. As a result, the Koi is coming to this year’s event to protect the citizens of Kichener from Dr. Stevil’s evil deeds .. or so we hope.
This will be the Koi’s 10th rebooking for our event group
