But fewer are aware of our own home grown heroes, The Canadian Whites, a lineup of comics written, drawn and published by Canadians in the 1940s. The product of wartime legislation banning foreign periodicals, the largely black-and-white comics were eagerly snapped up by comics-hungry kids across Canada looking for a fix. This CBC Television clip looks back at the short-lived Whites through the eyes of the men who created them.
