Recently we teamed up to produce two Canada 150 (and Guelph 190) articles for the GuelphMercuryTribune. Just like Group of 7, I handled the stories and Jason handled the art. This mash-up of history and comics doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon.
The first is about John McLean, a former Hudson’s Bay Company fur trader who spent twenty-five years criss-crossing Canada during the first half of the 19th century and wrote about his adventures while living in Guelph. You can read the story here.
The second is about the 1951-52 Guelph Biltmore Mad Hatters junior hockey team. The team captured the 1952 Memorial Cup and two of its players, Andy Bathgate and Harry Howell, are in the Hockey Hall of Fame. You can read the story here.
