Wild Card by Christopher Yao

flexible WILD CARD

In the Jackpot: Royal Flush episode, you got to meet Jackie’s ex-boyfriend, William aka “Wild Card”, played by Brad Hamelin. If you have seen the episode, you know that things did not end too well for him and a portion of his face. In this design by Christopher Yao, we get to see the final look the man will have as he will rise to power in the underbelly of Montreal and become the owner of an underground casino…

What happened between the episode and this new look will be covered in a comic book titled Wild Card: Face Off, which will be found in the
New Beginnings Trade Paperback. And Wild Card’s brand new look and anger towards Jackie (now turned Jackpot) will be in full display in an upcoming episode…

BEST WISHES FOR 2014!

flexible WILD_ROSE_NEW_YEAR

Our best wishes for 2014!

THANK YOU!

First, for being a loyal fan. We do this for you, first and foremost.

Second, for supporting us through thick and thin and making Heroes of the North something we enjoy doing!

There is not really enough we could do to thank you all, but this upcoming year we plan to give back!

We did not release as much as we wanted this year. We had to reorganize, reconsider, plan differently. But we are now ready for production and we think that the ride will be worth the wait!

So once again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Here's to a better year!

Sincerely,

The Heroes of the North Team

Season 2 begins January 30, 2014

flexible JACKPOT - ROYAL FLUSH

For those who are still wondering - it apparently was not clear at the end of the teaser because of the Grindhouse style titles - the second Season will begin on January 30, 2014 with the Jackpot: Royal Flush episode.

Here is the synopsis:

Jackie Pothier just lost everything. Her pride and joy, her martial arts school, has been foreclosed, thanks to her self-centered gambling boyfriend, William Carter.

Trying to regain what he lost, William plays against Irish mob leader Ray O’Flynn. Things do not go as planned and Ray shows up at Jackie’s to collect his due. Things degenerate quickly and Jackie finds a new strength and a dark side of herself as she tries to survive this night of violence, pain and murder...


This episode will be followed by:

WILD ROSE: TRIAL AND TRIBULATIONS (February 28, 2014)

MANTIS: A WING AND A PRAYER (March 30, 2014)

SASKANA: SEED OF WRATH (April 30, 2014)

INTRODUCING MANTIS

MANTIS

We took the opportunity of the Ottawa Comicon to introduce one of our new villains of Season 2, the deadly Mantis, played by the lovely Marie Ty. Mantis is a Medusa agent that works closely with Hornet. She has ties to the Heroes of the North vigilante known as 8 Ball. In fact, the most astute of the Hotnorthians will have noticed that Marie Ty makes a brief appearance in Episode 3: 8 Ball Origins as Tony Falcon’s wife, Brownwyn, where she meets a gruesome fate at the hands of some random thugs, triggering the events that will lead Tony Falcon to become 8 Ball. You will have to watch closely Season 2 to find out the sinister secret behind it all. On a side note, Mantis stylish costume was designed by Andy Bradshaw and created by Marie-Claude Bourbonnais (Hornet herself!).

The Nathan Fillion Adventure

HOTN_Nathan_Fillion

For Halloween 2012, Canadian actor Nathan Fillion disguised himself as his own version of a World War II Canadian superhero and tweeted several pictures in said costume. A fun yet innocuous gesture that resulted in us getting thousands of emails, tweets, DM and FB messages and comments as a lot of people thought he was doing his version of our Canadian Shield character. We even ended up doing a blog post about it. We seriously doubted he was aware of the show and we were convinced it was totally related but it was fun.

Flash Forward to May 2013 and Heroes of the North is headed to the second Edition of the Ottawa Comicon. And surprise, Nathan Fillion is the guest of honour this year. So we decided to go try to talk to Mr. Fillion and tell him the Halloween anecdote and how it affected us and our site traffic positively and we wante to give him a Canadian Shield comic book at the same time and tell him a little about the show.

When we got to him, at the signing booth, his first reaction was to react at the 8 Ball costume, ask Anderson Bradshaw to step back and using his phone, he flashed a picture or two. We got to tell him the anecdote and a little about the show and gave him a bunch of our comics. He was very enthusiastic and appeared delighted. “I did not know about this!”, he said.

We went back to our booth and the day proceeded briskly. Around 12:30, during lunch hour, as things quieted down, Anderson and Marie Ty decided to do what we call a flyer run: going to different booth and into the crowds, taking pictures and chatting with people and distributing the show’s flyer.

Cliff, one of the organizer of the Comicon, came by and said: “You will never guess who specifically requested to come by your booth!”. We had no idea. He said: “Our guest of honour, Nathan Fillion, asked to come visit you guys. He will be here between 12:40 and 1:15. Don’t tell anybody because we don’t want to create a commotion.”

We of course agreed. And started to run around and chase our missing flock. There was so much people, we did not manage to find them on time. Mr. Fillion arrived with his entourage, but we did not have the actors with us.

“Where is everybody?”, asked Mr. Fillion as he approached. “We are looking for them! We got warned of your visit after they had just left!”. He looked disappointed. “I will try to pass by again later!”, he said before being hustled away. As he disappeared around the corner, 8 Ball and Mantis arrived…

8 Ball and our producer ran in the direction they had disappeared but they lost them in the crowd. And we thought we had missed a great opportunity. But 8 Ball went to the signing area and managed to speak to the management. He came back with the following news: Mr. Fillion would meet us at 3 PM in the VIP area, backstage for a few minutes before his next appearance. Class act!

So about an half hour before three, we braved the crowd and headed down to the other end of the convention centre with everyone in tow, leaving only one man at the booth.

We got there a little faster than we thought, waited a little and then Mr. Fillion walked in, camera in hand, clicking away: “Look at you guys!” He took several pictures with our Heroes, Hornet, 8 Ball and Mantis, both with him and individually and then we took a couple of pictures as a group with him holding the Shield, which had started this whole thing in the first place.

So now the story is wrapped with a neat little bow. We wish to warmly thank Mr. Fillion for his time and generosity as well as everyone that made the encounter possible!

And that concludes our Nathan Fillion adventure!

We love the way Michael Dooney draws babes here at HOTN Central - that is no secret. So it is no surprise to anyone that we asked him to draw Nordik (VanessaBlouin). What surprised us is the amazing drawing he sent us! Complete with Northern Lights, polar bears and a most intricate hairdo, the mysterious mistress of the north truly shines here! Heck, even his polar bears are sexy!
