“Captain Fantasy” Launches International Awareness Campaign at the World Fantasy Convention.

Nov
10

(Calgary, Alberta)

“It didn’t start out that way”, says Brian Hades. “It was in the Hallowe’en edition of the Calgary Herald newspaper and the moniker just stuck”.

“Captain Fantasy” was the name splashed across the front page of the Entertainment section, under an enormous colour photograph of a grey haired, “Godfather-like” character seated in a 1950s style diner surrounded by two gorgeous space aliens.

The article, which spread over two pages, was the beginning of a media blitz bringing attention to one of Calgary's best kept secrets.
