About the book

Angloman is your typical, everyday superhero, bigger than life, champion of bilingualism and tolerance, and dumber than a post. He’s joined by kid sidekick West-Island Lad and partner Poutinette, the cholesterol-powered superheroine who takes on evil, infamy, and health food.

About the authors

Shainblum, Mark

Writer Mark Shainblum, a lifelong native of Montreal, leads a secret double life as both mainstream journalist and comic book writer. In the mid-eighties, Shainblum founded Matrix Graphics, an independent Canadian comic book publisher. He was also the co-creator of Northguard, a post-modern superhero series acclaimed by the Canadian Museum of Caricature as "...the most sophisticated depiction ever of a Canadian national superhero." A former literary columnist for Hour, the Montreal arts and culture weekly, Shainblum currently freelances for such publications as The Montreal Gazette and Quill & Quire, as well as New York's Broadway Comics.

Morrissette, Gabriel

Illustrator Gabriel Morrissette is a prolific comic book artist who began his career in 1984 collaborating with Shainblum on Northguard. In recent years Morrissette has worked on such classic mainstream comics as Doc Savage and Spiderman 2099, as well as many alternative and independent comics. Morrissette has also worked extensively in French for such Québecois humour magazines as Croc and Safarir, for whom he illustrates the adventures of humorous Québecois superhero Séveudireman. His illustration of Northguard's ally Fleur de Lys was recently featured in a Canadian superhero stamp series issued by Canada Post.
