Hi, Bill 9000!  I was wondering what happened to you -- were you trapped in the Phantom Zone or the Paradise Dimension these last few months?   :wink:

Anyway, glad to see you back.  I always appreciated your comments and artwork.   Cheesy

Thanks, guys. It's good to be back now that I can devote a little more time to posting on one of my favorite boards. Been kinda busy with a personal project of sorts. You be able to check it out soon in the Art section. :wink:

Quote from: "Bill 9000"
My own country, Canada, has Captain Canuck as its very own ... and I don't think I need to mention that the Man of Steel himself was a 50% Canadian idea, even though he was first published in the United States.

Hey Bill, welcome back!

Let's not forget my own fave WWII Canadian superheroes, Major Domo and Jojo.  The dynamic socialist duo who shared the pages of Triumph comics with Nelvana, the first female superhero ever.

On the "Superman is Canadian" front, I've always resented this desperate grasp at U.S. success from my fellow countrymen.  Shuster became a U.S. citizen as a child, basically and outside of the Toronto Star reference, I see little evidence for claiming Superman as even partially Canadian (although I'm pretty sure his Fortress was very close to our border if not actually in Canada :wink: ).

Canada has a great cartooning history that compliments the world of US comics without having to claim whole parts.  More interesting to me to see the influence both countires have on each other and to consider the changing economics, technology and family ties that have lead to migrations of Canadian Superman artists (Shuster, Byrne, Win Mortimer) and their modern day descendants who are able to stay in this country (and be eligible for Canadian cartooning awards like the Shusters and Wrights).

PS: I wish Shuster had kept his Canadian citizenhsip, if only so he could get free healthcare and a disability pension in his old age and blindness.
