Soon, you can enjoy Captain Canuck syrup with your pancakes

Considering Captain Canuck’s status as a Canadian national superhero, to say nothing of his maple leaf-emblazoned costume, it was perhaps only a matter of time before he graced a bottle of maple syrup.

Writing for Sequential, BK Munn recounts his visit on Monday to the Toronto Gift Show, where he discovered the image of the 1970s comic-book icon “grinning out at me from a bottle of maple syrup.”

As it turns out, current rights holder Captain Canuck Incorporated has partnered with Waterloo, Quebec-based Turkey Hill Sugarbush Ltd. for, yes, Captain Canuck-brand “100 % Approved Canadian Maple Syrup.” It’ll be available in the fall.

Hey, and it uses the single best illustration of Captain Canuck ever.

That image (by George Freeman) is the one that made me seek out CAPTAIN CANUCK comics, way back when…
