Camosun's Ken Steacy collaborates with Margaret Atwood to create "War Bears"—an exciting three-part graphic novel set in wartime Canada
A creative tour de force, Ken Steacy—instructor and co-founder with his wife Joan of Camosun's Comics & Graphic Novels program—speaks with the passion and authority of a person who's always known what he wanted to do.
"I made the decision what I was going to do with my life when I was 11," he says, when interviewed in his office at Camosun's Lansdowne campus. "By the early 1960s, I'd started reading Marvel Comics and I remember reading the credits of all the people and illustrators who worked on them. I knew that meant that working in comics was a real job and I could do that too!"
And that's exactly what he did. Starting in 1974, he's earned acclaim as a professional comic book author, illustrator, art director, editor and publisher, chronicling the stories of Spider-Man, Harry Potter, Astro Boy and the characters from the Star Wars universe. His latest project, War Bears is a unique collaboration with legendary Canadian author Margaret Atwood.
