Yoc's Uploads

I can't understand how this has gone unmentioned thus far ... so I'll bring it up!

Here's what happened to me today:

I sit down and pull up the latest DCM uploads list ... then ... my eyes bulge in disbelief ... my jaw drops in shock ... I blink to make sure it's not a mirage ... no, they're really there ... not just one, not two, not even three ... but NINE -- count 'em, NINE -- issues of Canada's fabled Triumph Comics, including issue #1!!  Added to the #5 we already had here, we now have issues #1 to #10!  All featuring the saga of Nelvana of the Nothern Lights!!  And all nine posted by one of Canada's and DCM's very own: the venerable Yoc!  :(|(  However did he do it? (Strange and awesome powers are being wielded here!)

What more can I say except, I lift my glass in thanks, Yoc!

Hi DH,
Great to hear they've been enjoyed but I'm only the guy uploading them.
The scanner LaLocas deserves all the credit and I understand there will be more in the future!

Anyone interested in learning the story behind Canada's short goldenage of comic publishers during WW2 including Triumph Comics can read about it at the following link:

Thanks be to both of you, then.  The news of more to come is terrific--I've been wanting to get hold of these since I first saw #5 some years ago.  Great stuff!

John C:
Beating the usual dead horse (disclaimer:  No actual animals were harmed in the typing of this paragraph), did we ever figure out the deal with Canadian copyrights?  I know the current law is Life+50, which would seem to remove these books from consiideration--Dingle, for example, died in 1974, yes?  Do we know these have no copyright protection?

(I really enjoy seeing them, regardless, but...)

Yoc:
Not sure myself, I saw the other one and figured you or Aussie already approved the title.
