Old Trout Funnies: The Comic Origins of the Cape Breton Liberation Army

  Author:   Ian Brodie  
  Artist :   Paul MacKinnon    
  Publisher:  Cape Breton University Press

Cape Breton Island underwent a metamorphosis of sorts during the late 1970s and 1980s. Long marginalized by geography, economics and predominant mainland political culture, a countercultural sea change brought the island’s deeply rooted creative side to centre stage. One such platform was Old Trout Funnies, a homegrown series of satirical comic books created by artist Paul MacKinnon. Emerging from MacKinnon’s Cape Breton comic book heroes, the Cape Breton Liberation Army led a cultural revolution that swept the nation, winning acclaim on every front.
