Finally! This has been a fun book and it'll be good to finally have the story conclude. In case you missed it earlier, the book is actually available digitally on Comixology if you're not up to waiting until September (at best).
And now, a double dose of Northguard:
Leaping from the pages of Captain Canuck comes Northguard, Canada’s newest super-hero! His first mission: Track down The Aurora Dawn, a mysterious cult hoping to bring about the end of the world!
Chapterhouse Comics’ Captain Canuck reboot has garnered praise and critical acclaim, now see our take on another classic Canadian superhero, Marc Shainblum and Gabriel Morrisette’s Northguard! This volume collects the first four issues of the fan-favorite series and includes never before seen content!
In Shops: Sep 27, 2017The good Captain does not appear in this book, but some of his entourage does, Kebec most prominently. Unlike some other Chapterverse books that don't have a clear connection to Captain Canuck, this one is very much connected and Northguard will appear in the Captain's second series as well. So long as he and the Captain continue to run in similar circles, Northguard will continue to be included here.
Which takes us to his second "season"!
Northguard returns with a brand new first issue!
The fan favourite super-spy returns! Still reeling from the events in Captain Canuck, Phil Wise is struggling to adapt to civilian life. But when Phil is marked for death by the deadly assassin Wolf, Northguard is thrust back into action!
In Shops: Sep 27, 2017Good stuff. Welcome back!
Now this last one is a bit of a surprise...
The alien warrior called Pharos came to our world to deliver a warning: The Bo-realis are coming. Instead he has wreaked havoc across the Earth and left death and destruction in his wake.
Now, he awaits execution for his crimes deep in a H.A.L.O. facility. Can brilliant young Equilibrium agent Parminder Patel unravel Pharos’ history and uncover the secrets behind his dire warning, opening the way to his redemption? Can she convince him to rejoin the fight and save Earth?
Find out in Chapterhouse’s new sci-fi epic series, written by Van Jensen (Green Lantern Corps, The Flash), with art by Neil Collyer (Heavy Space) and Leila Del Duca (Shutter, Afar).
In Shops: Sep 27, 2017This was called Northern Light when originally announced. It was believed to be a re-imagining of a 70s character who bore that name, similar to what was done with Northguard. Clearly that's not the case but rather a direct continuation of the Captain Canuck mini series that starts soon.
Can't help but feel like the Captain disappears again for a while after his own book ends, eh? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
