Captain Marvel-Canadian-1942

Sorry we missed yesterday but we make up for it today with this ultra-rare SHAZAM story (ahem), one of a number of such that were published only in Canada in black and white during the World War II era. Well, except for when TBG reprinted a few in the mid-1970s, which was where I clipped this.

Although Anglo-Canadians have discernibly eased rather far away from their commitment to remain British, it seems as if, in 1942, they had a felt need to give Captain Marvel something of the staleness of a comic book from the UK.

All that was missing was for someone to say “Cor!” and “oo-er”.
