HAPPY CANADA, everyone.

Yes, this might just shock a bunch of my readers, but yours truly, the Krayola Kidd, is in fact from Canada. I was born and raised in the Great White North, eh. And now some history for those who aren’t sure what Canada Day is.

Canada Day, formerly Dominion Day, is the national day of Canada. Just like the USA’s July 4th, it is a federal holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united three British colonies into a single country, called Canada, within the British Empire.Originally called Dominion Day, the name was changed in 1982 to CANADA DAY, the year that Canada gained full independence from the United Kingdom.

History lesson over.

Now some art. In honor of CANADA DAY, Canada’s most famous superhero. First introduced in the pages of the Incredible Hulk (issue 181 to be exact) and later to reach super stardom superhero-ness as a member of the All New, All Different X-Men: Wolverine.

"I'm the best there is at what I do, bub."

Enjoy and I’ll see you on July 4th with a post for Independence Day.

Be safe.
