SUMMARY: Captain Canuck’s brother, Michael Evans has vanished. It’s up to Canuck and Equilibrium to mount a rescue op and find him. All the clues point to the mysterious Site ALEPH! Plus: Classic Canuck faces an all new threat.
COMMENTS: “ALEPH PART 3: MAGNETIC NORTH”
The focus now shifts in part three as we see Tom and Michael’s relationship before Captain Canuck. We get to see Red Coat in action as she meets Tom for the first time. This is told in flash back against the story of modern day story of Tom mounting a rescue to save his brother. Key pieces of the past are raveled for the first time. Although this is directly connected to the prior oil sands story, chapter three feels like a new beginning and like it is just beginning to scratch the surface of who the Evan’s boys are and what Captain Canuck is all about. Oh yah, and their are polar bears too.
“ARMED & DANGEROUS: PART 1”
In the second feature we see Classic Canuck face off against the Sound Squad. Gone is his beard from the prior issues as we start a new episode of the time displaced hero.
Both chapters felt short I was left wanting more as they reached their convulsion. I was pulled into the Canuck universe and can’t believe I have to wait 30 days for the next installment.
With the polar bears, the secret cave and the time displacement the stories are beginning to give a vibe similar the the “Lost” tv show, and that’s a good thing.
