RICHEY BRINGS GOLDEN AGE CANADIAN COMICS TO A NEW AUDIENCE
Rachel Richey has been running Canadian-comics-focused website Comic Syrup since May 2011. She's an active figure in the Toronto comics scene and last year she helped launch a Kickstarter to reprint "Nelvana of the North," a comic focusing on a Golden Age Canadian superheroine. The success of the Kickstarter resulted in a new edition of the "Nelvana" collection -- soon to be published by IDW in October. Continuing the success of the "Nelvana" Kickstarter, Richey has just completed a successful campaign to reprint the exploits of another Canadian superhero, Johnny Canuck.
Richey spoke with CBR News about the origins of Golden Age Canadian comics, the backstory of Johnny Canuck and talks a little about some of the other characters she hopes to bring to a wider audience through reprint in the coming years, with over 320-pages of artwork by her creator Adrian Dingle.
