Masked Mosaic

Masked Mosaic: Canadian Super Stories
Editors:  Camille AlexaClaude Lalumière
Thrilling Tales of Canadian superheroes… and villains!

75 years ago Canadian cartoonist Joe Shuster co-created the world’s premier superhero: Superman. Over the decades the genre has gone from camp to counter-culture, from pop art to postmodern, from noir to new wave. Today’s superheroes feature in bestselling novels, hit TV shows, Hollywood blockbusters … and Masked Mosaic: Canadian Super Stories.

Mexican luchadores wrestle primordial evil in Vancouver … The Intrepids battle Nazis in Nova Scotia … A mysterious masked man rescues an adventuring heiress in a steampunk Gold Rush–era Yukon … Zombies and ancient Viking magic are unleashed in downtown Toronto … A godlike oracle wanders Calgary with her cyborg handler … The fearsome Iron Shadow stalks the streets of Kingstonia … The Coachwhip and Cat-Girl fight crime in lurid wartime Montreal …

In these 24 tales Canada’s most daring writers reimagine the super genre from its outer limits to its pulp origins, exploring the diverse landscape of Canadian identity and geography.
