Duty, Honour & Izzat: Coming Jan 2019

Sean Tonelli - Sunday, December 02, 2018

PRE-ORDER TODAY!

Duty, Honour & Izzat - Graphic novel
History non-fiction    $29.99 CAD    HC    144 pages    9781988903477
Written by Steven Purewal, illustrated by Christopher Rawlins.
Comic book story illustrated by Claude St. Aubin and Ruth Redmond.
 
Presented as a historical scrapbook with beautifully realised, photo-realistic artwork. Framing the history is a graphic novel story about a teenage boy, in Surrey BC, caught up in drug gangs. He rethinks his choices after his 95 year old great grandfather comes to visit the family in Canada. His stories of their past, and seeing him reunited with a Canadian soldier his great grandfather saved during WW2 opens up a different path to live his life.

Why are certain histories covered, discussed and inquired about, while others remain hidden? Going beyond the old tropes of colonised histories this book presents the Indo-Canadian community’s pioneer experience within the events leading to the ejection of the Komagata Maru from Canadian waters in July 1914 and the subsequent outbreak of the Great War in August 1914. Canada has a proud Great War record, and its achievements will be celebrated during WW1 centennial commemorations. However, the story of a longstanding Punjabi-Canadian community that fought for western civilisation & the British Empire, side by side with Canadians and under the same flag, has gone untold. Punjabi soldiers played a pivotal role in the opening months of the war in France & Belgium. A great book to introduce Canadian youth to a more inclusive look at our history.

Renegade Round Up

Sean Tonelli - Friday, October 12, 2018

Hello old friends! It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us and for that we apologize. We’ve been busy behind the scenes in our mountain lair, working on top secret projects that we can’t wait to share with you. While we may be tucked away, hunkered over our keyboards, our creators are out in the wild, doing the good work.


This weekend, join Nyco Rudolph (When Big Bears Invade) and Spencer Estabrooks (Sharkasaurus) at Fan Expo Vancouver. For more information and tickets, click HERE.


Ben Rankel’s historical crime thriller, FRANK, is now also available in softcover format at comic and book stores.


Next weekend on October 20th, Alexander Finbow (When Big Bears Invade, Shades of Grey) and Spencer Estabrooks (Sharkasaurus) will be attending CollectorFest Calgary. This is our first year attending and we're looking forward to being part of this great event at the Chinese Cultural Centre. Along with a great selection of graphic novels and comics, we'll also have original artwork from Claude St. Aubin (Loxley’s and the War of 1812) and exclusive high-quality prints from the Shame fantasy series, signed by John Bolton. Head over HERE for more information about CollectorFest Calgary.


Congratulations to cartoonist Jeff Martin on a marathon Read In week tour of Edmonton schools in support of literacy. Jeff read from his new book Redcoats-ish 2, which is available now at stores and here.




Next week, we have a pretty big announcement that I can’t share just yet, but I’ll give you a hint; aliens, blood, comics and metal...


Until next time Renegade readers.
