When Big Bears Invade could quite possibly be the greatest Canadian book ever published. Author Alexander Finbow answers the often asked question of just what will happen when Canada’s bears decide they’ve had enough of humanity’s wanton destruction of their country. Their response involves giant sized retribution as Canada’s most beloved cities and resources are laid to waste by vengeful behemoth bears using the best of Canada against itself. This possibly true story is brought to life by beautiful illustrations from Winnipeg illustrator Nyco Rudolph, the only man in Canada with the imagination vivid enough to translate this terrifying tale of apocalyptic doom, via curling and poutine, to life.

The launch will include a live performance of the book, a no holds barred Q&A with the creators, signing, sketching, exclusive merchandise, and perhaps a bear…


Author Alexander Finbow currently calls Canmore, Alberta home. His career began in movies as an actor, then director and screenwriter before moving into the slightly more serene space of publishing. When Big Bears Invade represents Alexander’s first rhyming book, and is solely responsible for his inability to speak any sentence without slipping into rhyme.

Winnipeg artist and illustrator Nyco Rudolph began his career designing album covers and posters, before creating his own line of inspired original artworks, quite often featuring dinosaurs, bears and gangsters. Nyco is currently working on his first solo graphic novel: When Bears Invade.
