Two Generals 

Scott Chantler (McLelland & Stewart)

Scott Chantler has explored Canadian history in comics before, but Two Generals is the first time he’s tackled a story with such a strong personal connection (the book recounts his grandfather’s experience in WWII). Chantler’s reverence for his grandfather is the book’s biggest strength, and weakness: the author’s passion for the subject matter shows on every beautifully laid-out page, but he also makes Law Chantler out as a kind of saint, giving all the interesting flaws to Law’s friend Jack (the other general of the title). Chantler’s artwork suits the historical setting, looking like a cross between Seth and Tintin.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
