Co-created by writer Ron Leishman (who left after the first issue) and artist/co-writer Richard Comely, Captain Canuck was first published in July 1975 by Comely Comics. George Freeman illustrated Captain Canuck from #2 through to #14 issue in 1981. In 2011 Captain Canuck: The Complete Edition was published by IDW, reprinting all 14 issues, the previously unpublished #15, the Captain Canuck newspaper strip and the 1980 Summer Special.

I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've seen Dave Sim "do" John Byrne. Uncanny. Is there ANYONE's style he can't emulate successfully?

I think you meant "emulate Richard Comely".
