Archives: “Improbable Questions: Print versus Online Comics”

Originally published Friday, September 23, 2013
We, the minions of Improbable Chuck, want to know things. Many things, in fact, but all those things can’t be contained in a single post or even multiple posts within our life time. So we’ve narrowed it down to one right now.

We want to know how you read your comics.

Do you primarily buy print or go for the easy click of a button on sites like Comixology? We also want to know which form you prefer because the method most often used doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the one you like the best. Do you enjoy the touch of a physical comic or love the easy storage of the eComic?

You have all week to let us know and we’ll write a post based on your answers. We’ll even tell you our personal preferences. You can answer via this post or, if you need more space, email us at

Archives: “The Nelvana Reprint Project”

Originally published in September 12, 2013.


We’ve briefly talked about Nelvana of the Northern Lights on this blog as part of the first Canuck Comics Facts but we will mention her again because 1) she’s awesome but mostly 2) a new project is in the works for her.

Who is Nelvana? She’s a Canadian comic book character that first appeared in August 1941 and was created by Adrian Dingle. Hope Nicholson andRachel Richey are spearheading a reprint project of all of Nelvana’s original issues for today’s comic book reader to enjoy. They already have a Facebook page and Twitter page dedicated to the project where they’ve posted a few pages of the first issue. They’ll be launching a crowdfunding campaign on October 1st 2013 so look out for that.

We hope to bring you more info and hopefully interviews of those involved when the crowd funding gets under way. It’s always nice to have Canadians who want to preserve and share our history in comics with fellow Canucks.
