    One thought on “Captain Canuck Vol. 1: Aleph”

    1. A superhero comic called Captain Canuck, like a Canadian version of Captain America? Maybe an indie superhero comic would be better than what the mainstream offers and you could play with national stereotypes. This could be fun, right? WRONG! Oh Canada… So this is the relaunch of an allegedly “classic” ‘70s character but, if you’ve never heard of the character up ‘til now like me, there’s a reason for that - unlike maple syrup and Tim Hortons, Captain Canuck suuuuucks! There’s a [...]

    2. I was excited when I heard Captain Canuck was being rebooted. Even though I'm not Canadian, I somehow had a couple of issues of the original series when I was a kid. Unfortunately, this was a confusing mess. I'm not even sure I could explain the plot if I wanted to. Captain Canuck fights this liquid gold that can animate the dead. First, they are at some kind of mining facility that has exploded. Captain Canuck's brother is kidnapped by the guy controlling the gold. Mr. Gold, of course! Then Cap [...]

    3. 'Captain Canuck Vol. 1: Aleph' by Kalman Andrasofszky with art by Leonard Kirk and Adam Gorham is a reboot of the 1970s series. It was much anticipated, but it's just a hot mess.When we meet Captain Canuck and his support team, they are responding to an emergency call in a gold mining operation. When they get there, they find that people have been turned into some sort of gold zombies from touching the gold. Captain Canuck's suit protects him from this somehow. We find out that the villain behin [...]

    4. I'm sad to say that I was not a fan of this series opener. Despite reviews, I went in worth an open mind in hopes that is be able to follow the story better than others had but I was sadly mistaken. Despite reading it twice in a row (which I've never done before but wanted to really give this a fair shot) there are still many parts of this story that are completely muddy to me. There are a couple of good things but they are so bogged down in an insensible story that they're vastly outweighed. Th [...]

    5. *I got this through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*Messy. That is the best way to review this comic. The story-line jumps back and forth, characters are introduced with little setting up to then give us more or less interesting but superfluous flashbacks that cannot overcome a sense of been there, done that. The superhero doesn't seem too much of a hero, and the comic doesn't do a great job of introducing the 'powers'. And the bad guy is not very menacing. Quite a list of shortcoming [...]

    6. I wanted to like it, being a fan of superhero comic book and being canadian, but it wasn't good. Captain Canuck is an in between Captain America and Iron Man, the character is not bad but it's the storyline that hurts by being to slow, not enough action, too much talking and a vilain that doesn't put out a good fight. Too bad, but not for me!

    7. I was actually rather surprised by this read. The art was very good, the action well paced and excellently rendered, the story however was quite hard to follow. I appreciate that every superhero comes with a backstory and a mythos, I just wish Captain Canucks had been better laid out. The use of flashbacks was patchy and felt oddly disconnected. It was also hard to feel sympathy and concern for characters that hadn't been fleshed out. For a book labeled as Volume 1 I felt like I had been thrown [...]

    8. I received a free copy of this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Let me start by saying that I am Canadian. I also had no idea that Canada had it's own superhero until now. So I was very interested and excited to see this comic when it came up. Now I didn't hate it, but I also didn't love it. I think I'm at a disadvantage because I didn't read any of the original works. I was definitely confused because it seemed to jump all over the place, there were too many story lines, and it w [...]

    9. This is one helluva mess. No, actually it's an unreadable mess. In fact, scratch that - it's a derivative, unreadable mess. Snake Plisken is the baddy, Amanda Waller is in charge of the hero, and it all goes to pot before the second issue is up. I'll be touching anything from this publishing house with a long-handled broom after this and the Pathetic Lizard Turd they also gave us.

    10. This wasn't bad, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. There's potential here, in the relationship between brothers, and some potentially interesting side characters. The art is also solid. However, for a first volume, the story doesn't have forward momentum, and all of the jumping around in time/people's memories makes this confusing, especially considering that it's supposed to be a reboot that appeals to both old and new Captain Canuck fans.Thanks to NetGalley for the eARC.

    11. Captain Canuck was always one superhero that captured this Canadian kid's attention. I was there and still have my first issue, bought way back in July 1975. And yet, for me, it always seemed that Richard Comely, the co-creator, always held back, and Canuck never really left as much of an imprint as he could have.The possibilities were always there, but they were never realized.For all of that, I stayed away from this rebooted version for quite a while, simply becausewell, it wasn't the Captain [...]

    12. Before getting this book, I had never heard of Captain Canuck. I was glad to find such a patriotic, Canadian super hero.In general, the story was interesting. The villain created a kind of gold that invaded and controlled people. It was very hard to remove from a person, and creepy to read about. I also liked the Toronto references. One of the final issues in the volume was even set right in the heart of the city, in Nathan Phillips Square beside the famous TORONTO sign.There were a few problems [...]

    13. I've always had a soft spot for Captain Canuck. I remember as a kid buying my first CC comic as a kid. Even then I loved it as much for the fact that CC was a Canadian like me, and unlike those other guys out there. So this new series had me excitedd I'll remain excited.but I have to agree with the criticisms. This is a confused intro to the characterd mainly because the authors have tried to do too much in the first story. I will keep reading.

    14. Confused and derivative are good descriptors of this first rebooted volume of Captain Canuck. There is too much going on (including aliens) and the only character that sparked my interest was Kebec. Also, if you are going to do a story in the Northern part of Canada, could you include at least one Northern Indigenous person?

    15. The art is really lovely, the colours are both suiting and pleasing to look which is something comics can struggle with. But everything looks very crisp and polished. The story isn't overly complex, but it's paced well and the reveals happen at the right time. I'm really looking forward to what comes next and I want to learn more about this interesting feature of their world. What is the thing Tom has, what happens when more aliens come, what do they want!? Is Michael gonna be okay, what about s [...]

    16. I jumped at the chance to read a non-American hero. I fondly recall falling in love with Dylan Dog, Tex, and Diabolik over on the Italian side of things, and we all know manga has left a cultural footprint; why not let the Canadians have a chance? Unfortunately, this one fell flat. 'Captain Canuck vol. 1' is the kind of reboot that starts in medias res, with nothing explained, to boot. If you know the characters, then you can follow this new version of them; if you're completely new, then this i [...]

    17. This is a version of Captain Canuck that aims high, and for the most part hits the target. This Captain is a techno-hero who, with a crew of well-rounded supporting characters, battles threats both fantastic and real to achieve worthwhile ends that involve more than just punching villain in the face. The writing here is solid. Motivations, dialogue and character arcs (mostly) make sense and the plot is plausible with some good dramatic beats. The accompanying art is well suited to the genre of t [...]
