Wild Rose and Acadia leap into action against the Hornet twins! And somehow ex-mayor Rob Ford fits somewhere in all of it! We're not quite sure if the internet is ready for this! :) Pencils by Gibson Quarter based on a story by Dave Michaels. Another story that will be found in our upcoming trade paperback, New Beginnings, now available for preorder!
Our friend and frequent collaborator, Toronto based writer and illustrator Ty Templeton, will be inducted in the Canadian Comic Book Hall of Fame tonight. We cannot think of anyone more deserving of this honour and want to congratulate him warmly.
For Heroes of the North, Ty has contributed several covers, including Acadia, Pacifica and Canadian Shield.
He also contributed an amazing story centered around The Canadian.
For some reason, Montreal Comicon 2014 was particularly exhausting.
51,000 people came to visit the show and hopefully they all had a blast!
We certainly did!
Our photos (and fan photos) are up in our Gallery.
A special character focused gallery is also in preparation in the MEMBERS section!
A very warm thank you to everyone who came to say hi at the booth and to the organizers for a well-run event.
See you next year!
The Heroes of the North Team
Here is the schedule of the characters at our booth for the 2014 Montreal Comicon:
All three days: Hornet (Marie-Claude Bourbonnais), 8 Ball (Anderson Bradshaw), Wild Rose (Sandra Belrose)
Saturday and Sunday: Mantis (Marie Ty)
Saturday, between 2 and 4 PM: Acadia (Christina Sciortino), The Canadian (Larry Vinette), Medusa Commander (Constantine Kourtidis), New Felquist - and comic book writer (Jean-Dominic Leduc)
Writer Yann Brouillette will also be present Friday evening as well as all day Saturday and Sunday.
There is a tentative chance that Michel Brouillette (Canadian Shield) and series writer will be on the floor Saturday. We will confirm when we know for sure.
Since Marie-Claude is a cosplay guest at the Montreal Comicon this year, she has other obligations beyond being with us and that means she has her own schedule. During the weekend, she will portray different characters but she will be at the booth as Hornet for sure Saturday, between 2 and 4 PM, alongside Acadia, The Canadian, Mantis, 8 Ball and Wild Rose.
