Heroes of the North - Convention Banner 02

Heroes of the North will be attending the Wizard World Toronto Convention on April 14 and 15 2012 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

8 Ball (Anderson Bradshaw) is going to be in attendance. There will also be tons of new merchandise: new T-shirts, prints, figurines and so on!

Plus we will be introducing our new booth setup - the banner above being one of the new elements. We look forward to see our Toronto fans at the event!

April and May will be busy months for you favourite superheroes as we will be criss-crossing Canada for various appearances! Keep track of our moves by visiting the
Events section of the site!

Nordik by Michael Dooney

We love the way Michael Dooney draws babes here at HOTN Central - that is no secret. So it is no surprise to anyone that we asked him to draw Nordik (VanessaBlouin). What surprised us is the amazing drawing he sent us! Complete with Northern Lights, polar bears and a most intricate hairdo, the mysterious mistress of the north truly shines here! Heck, even his polar bears are sexy!

Omnibus 2 Cover by Geof Isherwood

Here is the coloured version of the Heroes of the North Omnibus 2 cover by Geof Isherwood. The second Omnibus which should come out some time this summer will feature stories written by Yann and Michel Brouillette, with a special guest writer, Ty Templeton, who writes a Canadian story (illustrated by Mr. Richard Pace) and Art by David J. Cutler, Gibson Quarter (with some inks by Guillermo Ortego), Geof Isherwood, Dan Parent and a few more! We have to keep some surprises after all. The entire book will be lettered by Keiren Smith. Like the last installement, there will also be several pinups by Donald Caron, Michael Dooney, Joel Adams, Sv Bell and Dan Parent plus bonus stories you will not find anywhere else. You can get a cleaner view of the illustration by visiting our Artists Interpretations Gallery.




We commissioned artist Zach Fisher to create Chibi versions of our characters. For those not in the know, Chibi is a specific style of Japanese caricature where characters are drawn in an exaggerated way, typically small and chubby, with stubby limbs and oversized heads, to make them resemble small children. We are very happy with the end results which can be viewed in its own special Chibis section in our Galleries.

Nordik Team-up now online!

It has been a long time coming but we are very happy to present our latest comic book, a team-up between Nordik (Vanessa Blouin) and 8 Ball (Anderson Bradshaw), written by Yann Brouillette and masterfully penciled and inked by David J. Culter and coloured and lettered by Keiren Smith - with covers by Joel Adams, Donald Caron and Michael Dooney! While it keeps the dark tone our comics are known for, it is a radical departure in style compared to our other offerings so far and we are very excited to find out what our fans think of it. Do not hesitate to rate and comment - your feedback is very valuable to us!
