If you’re reading this newsletter you’re obviously familiar with Peter Sanagan’s career but there are other noteworthy Sanagans including Peter’s brother Chris who, along with illustrator Jason Lapidus, has recently published Group of 7, a comic book set in WWI.
The comic depicts a fanciful seven-man all-Canadian commando squad torn from the pages of a high school history book (A.Y. Jackson, Lester Pearson, Frederick Banting, et al.) Their action-packed exploits are set within the epic drama of the War to End All Wars.
The Group of 7 will appeal to comic book fans and anyone interested in Canadian history. It’s an especially lively approach to the subject for younger readers.
