Windsor ComiCon welcomes Richard Comely to its comic guest line-up for 2018.
Windsor, ON. Windsor ComiCon is please to announce its next comic guest for the 2018 season through Canadian artist and writer, Richard Comely.
Best known as the creator of Captain Canuck in 1975, Comely has written and illustrated over a dozen children’s books plus hundred’s of greeting cards while working on advertising pieces, newspapers and magazines for over 40 years. This includes dozens of articles for U.S. video production magazines, The Children’s Friend (LDS publication), The Calgary Sun, The Calgary Herald, The Toronto Star, Time Magazine and many other publications.
During his efforts, he worked as a publisher and editor for the weekly Westwind news in 1976 where he created and produced two syndicated newspaper comic strip features Trumpet and Wabbits. The weekly children’s feature Trumpet was carried in over 65 newspapers in four countries. He also produced the Captain Canuck comic strip in 1995 and 1996 while Captain Fresh Pac, Fan Guys and Gemini Force were publishing and promotional projects created by Comely.
Finally, Comely was inducted into the Joe Shuster Canadian Comic Book Creators Hall of Fame in 2010. He is currently working with publisher Chapterhouse Comics on exciting new ventures for Captain Canuck and other titles. He has more recently worked in collaboration with the Royal Canadian Mint toward releasing a Captain Canuck fine silver coin exclusive which personifies the spirit of Canadians by embodying self-sacrifice, determination and integrity.
“We look forward to receiving Richard Comely at this year’s show,” says Windsor ComiCon President, Colin Douglas. “Fans of Captain Canuck both new and old will get the chance to meet him while getting their comic books signed.”
