Let’s Get ‘True Patriot’ Into Canadian Libraries

John M. Swinimer makes a great point in bringing more comics with Canadian content into libraries. Please click here to read his thoughts.

"At the recent launch party for ‘True Patriot’, held at The Comic Book Lounge in Toronto, creator and contributor Howard Wong told me that he participated in this project for his children. He wanted to create something they would want to read and appreciate as Canadians. And that’s the reason for this blog."

Geek Hard at True Patriot Book Launch

The Geek Hard interviewed a few of the True Patriot book crew at the book launch. If that's not a reason to watch it, I do an Ogopogo impression. Yes, really. Click here for the interview.

"This past Saturday (August 10th) at the Comic Book Lounge in Toronto, True Patriot, the Canadian Superhero Anthology, was released to the world! Watch as Geek Hard’s own Andrew Young and Brent Chittenden talk with comic creators J Torres, Jack Briglio, Howard Wong, and Ramon Perez about the release of the book and their contributions to the collection. Join some Canadian creators as they show their True Patriot Love for Canada and Superheroes."
