MEGA JUNE UPDATE
PREPRODUCTION NEWS - MINISODES:
Summer is Finally here! It has been a very long winter and it feels good to finally get some warmth, isn't it? It also means that we can resume shooting with temperatures more suitable for our heroes that are latex clad. Preproduction is now underway for the Wild Rose, Terra Nova, Mantis (not latex clad but still... It is set in North Korea) and Borealis.
We want to also congratulate John Albert (pictured below with Hornet and Mantis), who purchased not one but two (!) set visits on the Wild Rose and Mantis shoot. John had previously participated on the Jackpot set visit and even earned himself a cameo in the episode, alongside Dominic Walsh! They both did a pretty good job: look for them on the Jackpot Episode: Dominic get stabbed and John gets a bullet in the head right after... Look for more fans cameos and other cool surprises in the upcoming episodes...

Some of you may have noticed changes on the website. We have added a massive footer to make navigation accessible everywhere.
We also added an Official Heroes of the North Retailers list - all Retailers that carry Official Heroes of the North Merchandise is listed there. If your local Retailer is interested, they can always CONTACT us.
Speaking of our Contact page, we have added several sections that deal with specific issues such as Retailers, Conventions, casting, artists and writers submissions, etc. We even added a Live Chat feature for those pressing questions that cannot wait a return email! Please don't abuse it!
You will also notice a sponsors list, which is for companies that contributed financially to the show and helped produced the upcoming episodes. If you own a company and wish to be a sponsor or if you want to recommend it to a friend who owns one, they just need to visit our SPONSORS section.

CONVENTION SEASON IS OVER! FOR NOW...
We had a busy spring attending tons of conventions. It was exhausting but also very rewarding but we are glad it is finally over so we can enjoy some weekends... The last convention we did was Niagara Falls. It was a first for us and it was lots of fun. Definitely one we will keep an eye on.
JACKPOT BY DONALD CARON
This image above is the latest illustration by Donald Caron and it has been quite a hit at conventions so far! This stunning illustration is finally available in our store, by public demand! Donald is well on his way to illustrate all the Heroes of the North characters, with a Wild Rose, Mantis, Borealis and Lighthouse illustrations all currently in the works...
Our Mini Comics are a popular section of our Members section. It allows us to feature short stories in the Heroes of the North universe drawn by up and coming Canadian talents. The latest one is a Black Terror tale called Winging It! by Yann Brouillette & Jono Doiron with Colours by Aljosa Tomic, and it is one of those tales where Black Terror awakes from his drug induced trips to find himself in odd situations.
We are a bit behind on the mini comics release due to the conventions but we are back on track and we will make up for lost time! Thank you for your understanding! You guys are the best!
