Captain Canuck Gets A Prose Novel In Lev Gleason May 2021 Solicits

We mentioned before about how after 65 years, Comic House and Lev Gleason Productions are back in April 2021. Lev Gleason Publications, founded by Leverett Stone Gleason, was the publisher of a number of popular comic books during the 1940s and early 1950s, including Daredevil Comics, Crime Does Not Pay, and Boy Comics. The publisher was among the first to produce comic books aimed at an adult audience. And that in what appears to be a rebrand for Canadian publisher Chapterhouse, the comics publisher will be publishing comics under the Comic House banner, and are launching Lev Gleason Presents: The Silver Streak #1, alongside former Chapterhouse titles Captain Canuck and Freelance.

They are also publishing novels based these public domain characters and characters they own themselves, giving us Captain Canuck's first published prose novel in the Lev Gleason May 2021 solicitations.
