Brok Windsor, the greatest Canadian hero of all time - that you've never heard of!
Created by Winnipeg-turned Vancouver artist Jon Stables, Brok Windsor was first published in 1944 and lasted for only two years. Brok Windsor was the incredible tale of a Winnipeg doctor who crash-lands on a magical island in the middle of cottage country. Here the residents grow to be 7 feet tall, treachery is around every corner, and monsters are out to get him!
Joining Brok in his journey is Torgon the son of a deposed leader of the local Blackpaw tribe, an expert marksman and flyer, and Starra the lovely, imprisoned descendant of a malicious British ghost.
