“We’re very excited to be able to team up with Ardden Entertainment, Brendan Deneen and Richard Emms on this first major Heroes of the North release. With the growing popularity of the Heroes of the North series, we felt it would be a natural expansion for the project,” said Christian Viel, President of Movie Seals Digital. “Heroes of the North is a labour of love for all concerned and it was deeply rooted in comic book lore from the start. To see the stories, including exclusive brand new material, now available everywhere in print, as well as on the world wide web, is a notable accomplishment and we are very grateful to Ardden for taking the jump with us on this.”
The Heroes of the North 80 pages One-Shot retails for $5.99 and is currently available for pre-order via Diamond Comics distribution. Written by Yann and Michel Brouillette, with art by Marcus "MAS" Smith (Halloween) and Olivier Raymond, the book will contain reprints of some of the current web comics, including some that while available on the web, will not be printed otherwise, as well as brand new original material written by Yann Brouillette.
