The room was packed

At the Captain Canuck panel on Friday the second animated webisode debuted.  It was good, very good. I can’t wait for the third (the first webisode aired July 1st while  the third is scheduled for release in late October).

The panel was hosted by Ajay Fry, the room was packed and the new teasers were flying, this is what we the crowd heard;

  • The Silver Snail is to publish a new series of comics featuring the updated Captain Canuck, Toronto based artist Kalman Andrasofsky is working with the Snail on this front
  • IDW is being pressured to put the Captain Canuck Complete Edition soft cover back into print
  • Info on the 3rd webisode was sparse, the crew only saying that Mr. Gold will figure prominently
  • Captain Canuck creator Richard Comely hinted at reviving the classic Canuck in a new series
  • Big B Comics is producing Mego style Captain Canuck toys that should be available before Christmas

After the panel fans got to meet Captain Canuck voice actors Chris Holden Reid and Paul Amos at the Silver Snail booth while CC creator Richard Comely was signing at the Big B Comics booth.

Here is Episode Two:

There was a great Captain Canuck vibe at this year’s Fan Expo. Something tells me this is the tip of the iceberg.
