Hal is the product development officer, Parks Canada at Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. Mike is an interpreter supervisor for the Halifax Citadel Society, a partner of Parks Canada at the Halifax Citadel.

Together, Hal and Mike created Citadel Adventures! – a comic book created exclusively for visitors to the Halifax Citadel to act as a guide and an adventure at the venue.

Halifax Citadel, completed in 1856, is officially called Fort George, named after Britain’s King George II, and is actually the fourth in a series of forts to sit atop what is now known as Citadel Hill. Its distinctive star shape is typical of many 19th century forts built by the British military and gave the garrison sweeping arcs of fire. The Royal Artillery fires the Noon Gun every day at 12 noon – a Halifax tradition that is one of the oldest in the world.
