Its proper name is generally considered to originate from the mythological Canopus , who was a navigator for Menelaus , king of Sparta. It has a luminosity over 10, times the luminosity of the Sun , is eight times as massive , and has expanded to 71 times the Sun's radius. Canopus is undergoing core helium burning and is currently in the so-called blue loop phase of its evolution , having already passed through the red-giant branch after exhausting the hydrogen in its core. Canopus is a source of X-rays , which are likely being emitted from its corona. The prominent appearance of Canopus means it has been the subject of mythological lore among many ancient peoples. The acronychal rising marked the date of the Ptolemaia festival in Egypt. In Hinduism, it was named Agastya after the revered Vedic sage.
By Wesley Messer — I went into Canopus knowing little to nothing about it. The neat part is that the small amount I saw, simply did not prepare me for the experience of actually reading this title. As you go from the first issue to now, this third issue is where the mind-bending but fascinating journey takes a whole new dimension. I would say the first two issues were gloriously experimental and brilliant, while also an absolute mind-twister of an experience. Chisholm experiments constantly with layouts and storytelling, and it all culminates together in this glorious issue. I also love the deep level of character work put into Helen Sterling.
