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.

Chibis!

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.

Al Rio passed away

Al Rio was one of the first big time artists to jump on board our little project. He drew the Fleur-de-Lys below. His implications helped pave the way for other artists to jump on board and lent us credibility. So it is with great sadness that we heard he has passed away this morning, from an apparent suicide. Fans are invited to leave messages on his DeviantArt page. Our thoughts and sympathies go to his friends and family. May he rest in peace.

Alpha Q by Donald Caron

Well, today was artists day at HOTN Central! First we got the amazing work in progress art by Michael Dooney for the upcoming Nordik comic book cover. Then we got some layout art for an upcoming comic book by Olivier Raymond, which we cannot disclose yet because we do not want to spoil anything - that story has HUGE repercussions in the Heroes of the North Universe. No kidding! - and now we just received the print cover for the Alpha Q comic, dramatically rendered by our go-to artist for covers, Donald Caron! Enjoy! For this piece, Donald did a photo session with Alpha Q actor Yann Brouillette and the results are nothing less than stunning! We are sure you will definitely agree! Winking

Heroes of the North, Archie Style!

You cannot be a fan of superhero comics and not be at least remotely aware of Archie Comics. Heck, our old pal Archie Andrews even had a run-in with the Punisher, no less! So to have a rendition of some of the HOTN characters Archie-style was definitely a no-brainer.

Dan Parent, writer and illustrator of several Archie Comics books, and more specifically creator of Kevin Keller, the first openly gay character in Riverdale, has agreed to do a cover for an upcoming comic book currently entitled Zombots getting schooled by Yann Brouillette. We met the groundbreaking writer and artist at the MegaCON in Orlando this March and we must say that it has been an absolute pleasure to collaborate with the man, not to mention his Canadian (and more specifically Quebec) Connection.

The fun-filled cover is ready and features The Canadian, Fleur-de-Lys and Nordik. It is our pleasure to show it to you in all its glory:

The comic will not be online for a little while however as we have to release a Fleur-de-Lys and a Hornet story before that but you can also view the piece in higher resolution from our newly revamped Galleries or procure it from our store as a reproduction.

New Bundles!

As a general request, we have reintroduced Bundles in the Figurines, Comics and Reproductions sections of the Heroes of the North Store.

For example, you can get all the currently available figurines through one bundle, get only the Heroes or only the Villains. In the Comics section, you can get both currently available comic using the same shipping cost (Canada Post charges the same amount, for one or two comics anyways).

This new bundling system allows you to save on shipping - we know how crazy shipping costs can get - sometimes by bundling items, it is a better way to save. Enjoy!

Back from MegaCon - Things to Come!

14

We are officially back from MegaCon. We had a total blast meeting all our current fans and making some new ones. The weather was great throughout and we met tons of super nice folks. The only shadow was that Fedex managed to screw the delivery of some of our items. Other than that, everything went without a hitch.

We also got to make some contact with new cover artists for our upcoming comics. Archie Comics writer and illustrator Dan Parent will be one of them, as well as Toronto artist Kevin Yan who does Manga style epic like nobody’s business. Cannot wait to see what they come up with!

And amongst all that, despite being a stone throw away, we managed to miss the Rob Granito scandal.

We are also amongst numerous very talented nominees in the fiction and drama, Web TV, for the Numix Awards. Wish us luck!

And we are almost done with the French implementation of the site, so we will be returning to our regular schedule pretty soon!
