Following in the footsteps of Bianca Beauchamp, we are happy to confirm the return of Edith Labelle as the Province of Quebec’s very own superheroine, Fleur-de-Lys… Welcome back Edith, we missed you!
From the outside, it may look like not much is happening but in fact, quite a lot is. We are in the finishing stage of wrapping up everything related to Season One, including Episode 20, the Season Finale comic, the DVD, the 440 pages mammoth trade paperback of all the stories pertaining to Season One, prepping Season 2, and updating the site in a major fashion. So please be patient in the next week or so as we have a lot of broken links. Our goal is to make the site easier to navigate, more efficient yet still packing punch! Let us know how we are doing!
Also, on April 13 and 14, Yann and Michel Brouillette, co-authors of most of our comics and several of the show’s episodes, will be in Quebec City for the Festival de la BD de Québec. They will introduce a 60 pages, extremely limited edition Fleur-de-Lys comic which they will be on hand to sign on Sunday, April 14th from 12h00-13h00 (Dimanche 14 Avril de 12h00-13h00). Also present at the event will be Marie-Claude Bourbonnais (Hornet), who will be in charge of a cosplay event.
Here is the latest Heroes of the North illustration by Michael Dooney! His interpretation of Fleur-de-Lys is simply out of this world! We are always amazed at the man’s work and look forward to his other contributions!
Trouble is brewing in Montreal as Fleur-de-Lys fights Miss Canada right in the terminal!
Here is yet another sneak peek at the upcoming artwork for the last Heroes of the North Omnibus, CODA, coming out in December. In this story by Yann Brouillette, gorgeously penciled and inked by Patrick Hénaff, Fleur-de-Lys meets her match while trying to prevent a potential terrorist attack… At least, it is the official plot line. Since the story is told backwards, you will not find out until the end what it is all about… Prepare to be shocked...

Our figurines for the characters of Crimson (played by Bianca Beauchamp) and Fleur-de-Lys (played by Edith Labelle) are now officially sold out! We would like to thank everybody who got one. We have currently a few Canadian and Hornet figurines left and are imminently awaiting a fresh shipment of Nordik and 8 Ball, with several of the other characters figurines on their way, including Black Terror, Madame Doom and the Canadian Shield.
The second of our brand new series of FREE WALLPAPERS is out! It features Fleur-de-Lys, as it was decided by a poll of fans who participated in an impromptu poll we held on our Facebook page. Fleur-de-Lys was a clear winner there and so here it is. Other wallpapers will follow, in order of polling numbers - so expect Nordik and the Canadian Shield next!
As usual, there is a sneak peak, of inked pages. We cannot wait for you folks to read this story, one of the best we have written so far!
Here’s the first page of the coloured version of the comic.
Since the colours are not 100% complete, we will not show them yet, despite the fact that they are already stunning. But we will give you a little sneak peek nevertheless at the first page, inked and lettered, complete with a small grammatical error that will be fixed for the final version.
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.
