Captain Cannabis No. 1 40th Anniversary edition brings the original 1977 Captain Comic book into the 21st century. Creator Verne Andru painstakingly digitized, cleaned up and airbrushed the original 16 black-and-white artwork pages giving them a vibrance and polish that makes the story seem to jump from the pages. He took the same care with the story, taking several continuity passes ensuring this epic story starts with a bang!
And what a story! In this issue we meet young Hal Lighter and sweetheart Marion Jones as they become entangled in a tale of mystery and intrigue spanning time and space. After she is abducted, mysterious glowing reefer starts transforming reluctant hero Hal into Captain Cannabis, a "superhero" on a mission.
Filling out the 28 pages (including covers) is a seven page comic book story by Verne Andru titled "Angel." Written and illustrated after Captain Cannabis, it follows the lone survivor of a space shuttle crash struggling for survival on an alien planet armed only with her wits. As a special treat, the last 3 pages feature artwork by artist extraordinaire George Freeman. Angel first appeared in "The Canadian Graphic Collector #4" during 1978.
