The Great Canadian Comic Books (ISBN 0-88778-065-2) is a 1971 book from Peter Martin Associates. It was written by Nelvana founders Michael Hirsh and Patrick Loubert, with partner Clive A. Smith as designer and illustrator. It looks at the "Canadian Whites" series of comic books made during World War II, with some focus on Nelvana of the Northern Lights, the genre's first superheroine, and Johnny Canuck, as well as their publisher, Bell Features. It was accompanied by a two-year travelling tour of the art, the National Gallery of Canada's "Comic Art Traditions in Canada, 1941-45".
In August 2007, editor Roy Thomas reprinted The Great Canadian Comic Books in its entirety in issue 71 of Alter Ego, his long-running magazine about comics art and history.
