Illustrator extraordinaire Donald Caron has been hard at work for quite some time on an 8 Ball illustration based on a concept by Andy Bradshaw (8 Ball himself!). This is but a fraction of the final image, on which Donald is still toiling over. Makes you wonder where the hell 8 Ball has set his feet into this time around.... And no, it is not a crossover with the Walking Dead...
What is Compendium? It is the first compilation of all the comics of Season One in one swell 260 pages book! The book will come out at the end of January 2014 and will retail for $39.99.
Here is the catch: We are only printing the quantities PRE-ORDERED. NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS. The book contains ALL THE STORIES ALREADY INCLUDED IN THE THREE OMNIBUS, so if you already have those, no need to buy this one, hence the limited print run. You can already pre-order it on Amazon.com, which allows you to save a lot, or you can get it straight from out store as well or through your comic book store in March.
As part of his intense creative process, which we are documenting in a book and DVD combo coming out this spring, Donald likes to sketch. A lot! Here is a sample of sketches he did for an upcoming Jackpot illustration. As you can see, the man leaves no stones unturned!!!
Work in progress by Donald Caron for an upcoming Black Terror illustration.
Here is a sketch for an upcoming Black Terror illustration by Donald Caron. This illustration will also be part of an upcoming book we plan on releasing in the Spring of 2014 called Heroes of the North: The Art of Donald Caron.
Sometimes, there is just nothing to say...
Our latest comic, Q&A with @Q is out! Penciled and inked by Marcus MAS Smith, coloured and lettered by KT Smith and written by Yann Brouillette, with a digital cover by Geof Isherwood and an upcoming print cover by Donald Caron, the story relates Alpha Q’s bitter first taste of the film industry, their propension to appeal to the lowest common denominator and their general lack of creativity. Or whatever else you want to see in it! Enjoy!
Donald Caron has done it again! This fantastic wrap around cover set piece features the deadly Hornet, captured in feral action, as she breaks inside the Flowers Industries weapons factory. One of the hardest illustrations he ever had to make apparently. But we cannot tell by looking at it! It is simply astonishing!
The attention to details in Donald’s work is simply astonishing! His Heroes of the North illustrations are simply out of this world!
This illustration will grace the print cover of the Hornet comic. We will also make a limited amount of prints, which you will be able to procure in the STORE.
The Hornet Comic Book is written by Yann Brouillette, with pencils and inks by MAS, Colours and lettering by Keiren Smith. Digital Version cover by Dean Yeagle and Print cover by Donald Caron.
Hornet is played by Marie-Claude Bourbonnais.

This is the long awaited cover by Montreal Illustrator Donald Caron for the upcoming Crimson Comic book. It perfectly captures the lethal and raw nature of the character origins. Not to mention it has a very Frazetta feel. Another epic illustration for the books! You can also check it out in our artist Gallery.
Besides the already in the pipeline Crimson and Hornet covers for the respective comics, Donald will also do the following characters:
- Alpha Q;
- Canadian Shield;
- 8 Ball.
So that is five new amazing illustrations of the Heroes of the North Universe to look forward to.
