Abstract
What do Superman, Prince Valiant, Cerebus the Aardvark, and Spawn have in common? Their creators – Joe Shuster, Harold Foster, Dave Sim, and Todd McFarlane – are Canadians. Invaders from the North profiles past and present comic geniuses, sheds light on unjustly neglected chapters in Canada’s pop history, and demonstrates how this nation has vaulted to the forefront of international comic art, successfully challenging the long-established boundaries between high and low culture.
