Our cool as hell graphic designer, Tim Goernert, could not sleep last night after Black Terror nightmares and he has come up with a whole line of T-Shirt concepts... Here is the first one. Let us know what you think. If enough of you like them, we will make them. Now, we will have to think about moving Black Terror's pen away from Tim's bedroom. The cohabitation appears to be difficult... Then again, if it inspires him to do great work... Hmmmm.... Tough choices.
It is that time of the year again! The Montreal Comicon is almost here and this year we have a huge chunk of the cast attending!

We will have an exclusive Heroes of the North Omnibus 2 printed especially for the Comicon, on higher quality paper, and with a different cover than the one that will be in stores.
It will also have a different binding and a bonus story not found anywhere else. It will be expensive a little because it is a limited run of 100 - but if you preordered the book from us, bring your receipt with you and you will only pay the difference!
Be there or be square!
The Heroes of the North Team
8 Ball and Black Terror are at it again in the last comic book of Season One currently called Season Finale, appropriately (but boringly) enough!

The events depicted in this book will dramatically alter the Heroes of the North Universe and set the stage for Season 2...
Zach Fischer recently completed work on a twelve pages story that will be included in the next Heroes of the North Omnibus, coming out this September, as part of the exclusive, print only stories of that book.
He also offered us this illustration of the main hero of the piece. Enjoy!

In January 2012, our first comic book compilation will be published by Ardden Entertainment and available everywhere in North America. For the occasion, we wrote a few stories that will be available exclusively in that comic. Here’s a sample of a hilarious Black Terror story.
You can pre-order the comic book now from your favourite comic book store. If you do not live in North America, you can pre-order it from us at the same price it will be available in kiosks and stores here.
If you are wondering why it is important to pre-order the book, we answered all your questions on this page.
We got the first painted prototype of the Black Terror figurine, played on screen by John Fallon. The figurine was designed by Marcus MAS Smith and sculpted by Gensen. This figurine comes with red LEDs inside the head, which gives it an even creepier look when lit! Check out a few more pictures of the current work in progress... The chest logo is missing at this stage and there are a few more details to be added but it is almost there! There are currently four (4) figurines ready to ship. There will be a grand total of twelve (12) figurines for the first season of Heroes of the North.
