Orlando Megacon

Heroes of the North, Archie Style!

You cannot be a fan of superhero comics and not be at least remotely aware of Archie Comics. Heck, our old pal Archie Andrews even had a run-in with the Punisher, no less! So to have a rendition of some of the HOTN characters Archie-style was definitely a no-brainer.

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.

Our MegaCon appearance in World of Superheroes

While we were at the Orlando MegaCon, we met lots of people. Amongst them were the very nice folks over at World of Superheroes. They did a nice little piece on our booth over there. They talk about the concept, the merchandise (which seems to have left quite an impression) and the booth in general. Some excerpts:

It was one of the most impressive booths at Megacon. The concept, the look, the enthusiasm and not least the stunning girls from the series made it different from anything else on view.”


This is a courageous and innovative enterprise and I suspect represents the future of our industry. It deserves all our support.”

Back from MegaCon - Things to Come!

14

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!
