We will be attending the Free Comic Book day at La Boîte à BD in Laval this year. They have a great initiative where they give, alongside the already free comics, a black and white comic that they get made themselves by asking various indie creators to contribute a few pages. Heroes of the North contributed to the initiative with a 2 pages Nordik story by Yann Brouillette & Christopher Yao. The comic is being handed out alongside the other comics from Free Comic book day! Looking forward to meet everyone and spend a good day filled with fun, comics, fans and friends!
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.

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!

It has been a long time coming but EPISODE 17: Past and Present, is finally online! It took a while to put together as it was a very long episode and we wanted to distillate it to the most important elements. It is also an important presentation piece for things to come in regards to Medusa Commander, our main villain, his view of the world and his plans. It also sets up important stuff for Season 2. So we wanted to do it right. The episodes stars Michel Brouillette as The Canadian Shied, Constantine Kourtidis as the Medusa Commander, Ross Neil as Baxter, Marie-Claude Bourbonnais as Hortense Netter, Anoutlith Sintaraphone as Steel Tiger ans Anderson Bradshaw, who reprises the role of his 8 Ball character’s grandfather, Falcon.
We sincerely hope you enjoy this latest piece and we look forward to lead you towards the season finale of the first Season of Heroes of the North!

Here is a taste of what you can expect in Episodes 18… The episode features amongst others, Mengele/Medusa Commander, the New Felquists, Hornet aka Hortense Netter, Baxter, Steel Tiger and the Canadian Shield… STAY TUNED!
Our critically acclaimed Hornet comic book is now finally available for digital download in the store for the very reasonable sum of one dollar.
The book was written by Yann Brouillette, penciled and inked by MAS and coloured and lettered by Keiren T. Smith. The Digital version cover is by Dean Yeagle. The print version cover is by Donald Caron.
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!
