The Brouillette brothers, or the Brou Bros as they christened themselves, never wrote a comic book until they were tasked with writing the closing chapter of the Heroes of the North saga, the Rescue. But one would never know because they were born storytellers to begin with and they had been reading comic books most of their lives. They took to it like fish to water… And the rest, as they say, is history... still in the making!
Yann Brouillette was born in Montreal in 1981 and has loved comic books since he's a kid. Despite his parents' aversion for them, Yann and his brother sneakily exchanged tooth fairy's money for the latest issues of the X-Men... and did not believe in tooth fairies.
Since its first issue in 2010, Yann became the head-writer for the Canadian super hero comic book series Heroes of the North with the publication of the Canadian Shield issue #1, which he co-wrote with his brother. Simultaneously, Yann has written sci-fi short stories for the Zidara9 Québec anthology as well as Enfer Corps. a series of funny stories surrounding a bunch of pathetic devils for the Lanfeust Mag.
Rumor has it that Yann obtained his Masters in organic chemistry from Université de Montréal in 2005 and his Ph. D. in organic chemistry from Montpellier University in 2008. It's true.
Now a chemistry professor at Dawson College since 2009, Yann is offering a new complementary course to non-science students entitled "Comic Book Chemistry" where he uses situations depicted in graphic novels to describe basic chemistry.
In sum, he hopes you will enjoy reading Heroes of the North's comics as much as he liked writing them.
