8 Ball by Donald Caron Sneak Peek

flexible 8 Ball illustration Teaser 1


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...

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!

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

Alpha Q Comic is out!

Alpha_Q

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!

Crimson Comic now online!

The character of Crimson is interpreted by model Bianca Beauchamp in the series. WARNING: This is an extremely harsh story and it will offend some readers. Discretion is strongly advised. We recommend however that people who can stomach it read it BEFORE watching Episode 12. It will give a lot more depth to the content of that episode.
