CAPTAIN STARSHIP

CAPTAIN STARSHIP

“Captain Starship” was a humorous science fiction serial created by political cartoonist Adrian Raeside exclusively for the Toronto Star’s “Starship’ page for children.

“Captain Starship” replaced “George and Jacques” in April 1979 when the later was cancelled amid controversy. See GEORGE AND JAQUES. “Captain Starship” stopped appearing in the Toronto Star after September 1991. The strip was ended by a kind of mutual agreement. There had been a good relationship between Adrian and his editor Ann Farrell but after she left the Toronto Star the relationship with the new editor was not so harmonious.
