First, a really cool review from the Web Series Wonders blog to start off the weekend…
Two, big news, HUGE news in fact for our little comics that could… Can’t say too much but an American publisher is gonna put our a 96 pages Omnibus of the books throughout the comic book retailers network across North America. Huge exposure for your favourite Heroes! More detail next week as the press release comes out!
Three, stuff is brewing on the toy front as well. So much is happening it is hard to keep track….
Fourth, we got to meet lots of talented young Canadian creators at the last Fan Expo and several of them will join our art team in the coming months. Special thanks to Ty Templeton and Keiren Smith for shepherding some of these encounters...
And we are starting ground work on Season 2… That’s good for a drink, no? Come on! It is Friday night! Have one for us!
And more importantly: STAY TUNED!
Koldcast scores another TKO with the web series “Heroes of the North,” chronicling the awesome adventures of a butt-kicking band of colorfully costumed Canucks – including The Canadian (Larry Vinette), Fleur-de-Lys (Edith Labelle), 8 Ball (Anderson Bradshaw), Nordik (supermodel Vanessa Blouin), Black Terror (John Fallon), and Canadian Shield (comic writer Michel Brouillette) – that basically comprise The Justice League of Canada. Together they face off against an equally elaborate assembly line of supervillains, mostly from the evil organization called Medusa. Extensive individual character background files, digital comic books and multi-media merchandise, including collectible figurines, augment this ambitiously designed and expertly engineered alternative universe, every bit as inventive, engaging, entertaining, complex and just plain fun as X-Men or Watchmen and even The Avengers (at least the comics version). There are episodes devoted to each hero’s unique origin story, and many feature French subtitles, adding spice to the “exotic” North of the Border flavor. The production values are simply spectacular, including the sexy costuming, credible action choreography, and budget-limited but contextually satisfying special effects. All in all, this is Geek’s Paradise Found.
