CAPTAIN CANUCK ACTION FIGURE LAUNCHES WITH CANADA WIDE EVENT
JAN 19, 2015
Kicking off the Captain’s 40th Anniversary Action figures land in comic book stores across Canada
As the first of many celebrations for the 40th anniversary of Canada’s own Captain Canuck, Big B Enterprises in association with Captain Canuck Incorporated are pleased to announce the release of the Captain Canuck Retro action figures.
"We have been anxiously waiting for these action figures to arrive in Canada. These are the first wave and they have been highly anticipated by fans and collectors." Declares Walter Durajlija, owner of Big B Comic book stores and CC Inc. licensee.
Crafted in the Classic Mego-style by Odeon Toys, this Limited Edition collectible (MSRP $29.99 CDN), captures all the action and excitement that Captain Canuck has brought to fans for the last 40 years.
The figures are being introduced Saturday January 24, 2015 in comic book stores across Canada. These are all designated ‘Official Captain Canuck Club Member’ stores and many of them are celebrating with in-store artist signings. Hamilton’s Big B Comics plays host to Captain Canuck Creator Richard Comely while Kalman Andrasofszky, writer and artist for the upcoming Captain Canuck Monthly will be appearing in Toronto’s famous Silver Snail store. Both signings are from 12-3pm.
All Odeon Toys are available at the PlaidStallions Store

ABOUT CAPTAIN CANUCK:
Created by Richard Comely and Ron Leishman, Captain Canuck was first published by Comely in 1975. Captain Canuck rose to
National acclaim after a CBC radio play, more than 2.3 million comic books (28 issues), Newspaper comic strips, hard cover and TPB
collections from IDW publishing, and various licensed products. Captain Canuck original art exhibitions travelled to four Southern
Ontario cities in 1998 – 2000. In 1987 the Captain adorned the cover of Time Magazine, Walrus Magazine (2007), other magazines and
his own Canada Post stamp in 1995. A live action feature film is currently in development at Minds Eye Productions. Celebrating his
40th anniversary, Captain Canuck has been re-envisioned with a new costume for an upcoming new comic book series and a popular
animated web series.
