Guest Spotlight: Hope Nicholson

Raised in Winnipeg and a graduate of York University in Toronto, Hope is a small press publisher who found and reprinted the lost Golden Age comic books: Nelvana of the Northern Lights (under CGA Comics) and Brok Windsor (upcoming release Spring 2015). Both projects were funded through Kickstarter and raised well over their intended goal, bringing these lost characters back to the attention of the public. Nelvana of the Northern Lights was recently picked up by IDW for a rerelease to the general public. Through these projects Hope has been featured in newspapers, television interviews, radio, podcasts, and web interviews dozens of times.

 

Hope is also a professional researcher specializing in the history of 1940s Canadian comic books. She has served as a producer on the documentary film Lost Heroes which follows Canada's superhero history and is directed by Orphan Black & Bitten writer/producer Will Pascoe and narrated by Spider-man voice actor Paul Soles. She is a member of the Toronto fan-news organization G33KPRON and has presented at conventions and conferences on Canadian comic book history throughout the US and Canada.
