Johnny Canuck is the first Canadian national hero, Canada's Captain America if you will. See, way back in 1942, a very young Leo Bachle and his active imagination created Johnny Canuck! Johnny's character was kind of a Jack of all trades, a flying ace and fighter, secret agent, and officer in the Canadian military. Most of the time, Johnny was saving "foreign beauties" and fought the axis on almost every war front. He met up with Hitler no fewer than three times and was trained in trapeze and boxing! Throughout his comics he travelled to Yugoslavia, Russia, Germany, Libya, Tibet, and China. It wasn't until the final issue that Johnny's story took place in Canada, and just off the coast of Halifax! Johnny's adventures are unforgettable, and although it's been 70 years, I promise when you read this book you won't be able to put it down!
