Golden Age Canadian superheroes finally see distribution outside of their homeland! Johnny Canuck, Freelance, Commander Steele, Ghost Woman, Purple Rider, and the Red Rogue soar into action in all-new, full-length stories set in modern times, coupled with never before seen reprints of classic tales from the Golden Age for a punch-filled package of epic comic adventure. Cover by Jason Edmiston.

Our main story takes place in the middle of the 21st Century, when international competition for dwindling water and power resources have led the world to the brink of war. A mad Russian physicist attempts to impose his own peace on the belligerent nations, and sets off a device meant to disarm all the radioactive material on Earth.

It was supposed to work all at once, no more nuclear devices, peace for all time.

But it DIDN’T work that way, and instead it plunges most of the planet into a permanent and mysterious blackout. A new, electricity-free Dark Age, from which there seems to be no escape.

All except for a one long stretch of North America -- a hundred miles wide and three thousand miles long -- through Alaska, across Canada, and down to Detroit through to New York City -- the power is still working and the lights are still on. And the Red Rogue’s device that set all this in motion, seems to have given the locals super-powers.

Can the North America of the 21st Century survive, surrounded by a desperate world stuck in the Dark Ages? And can Johnny Canuck and his Guardians bring back the balance of power, before European invaders destroy North America?

OTR #32: In Soviet Russia, The Heroes Super You! 0

  Writer: Ty Templeton  Artist: David Cutler  Colorer: KT Smith  Cover: Jason Edmiston       Now i am a patriotic person (shut up i am!). but when it comes to comic super heroes, i think my country is rather dull. cause everything we bloody do always has to involve our neighbors to the south to which I mean America and not the north pole. Canada has similar crimes seen in many US major cities but for some reason when it comes to super heroes there is not enough to do...
