Library and Archives Canada releases its latest podcast episode, “Guardians of the North: Comic Books in Canada”

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is releasing its latest podcast episode, Guardians of the North: Comic Books in Canada.

You don’t have to go far to see the influence that comic books have had on contemporary culture, but you might be surprised to learn that LAC holds an extensive collection of comic books and related material within its vaults. In this episode, we speak with comic book historians Hope Nicholson and Rachel Richey about their work and LAC’s role in it. We also talk to special collections librarian Meaghan Scanlon who takes us deep into the comic book collection, and tells us what can be found there and online.

  1. Thanks for this Guardians of the North podcast, I like it. With a fancy title and all, does this mean it may be first in a series? That would be great.
