Synopsis

There’s trouble in our home and native land, and only Mapleman can keep darkness at bay! In this comic book musical, Canada’s mightiest hero has never met an equal in strength or catchy theme songs. However, a new villain shows up in town ready to turn Mapleman’s strength – the people of Canada – into his weakness. Soon, the Canuck Crusader loses his place in the hearts of his fellow citizens, who are singing the new songs of vapid consumerism and greed. Will our hero triumph? Will his ideals ever again guide the national identity, holding strong against the most dastardly of threats? Will he make it to his date on time? Find out in the first issue of Mapleman: Canuck Crusader! (summerworks.ca)
