Heroes of the North do as good a job as anyone of using various forms of media to get the word out about their product, but nonetheless I wanted to include the solicitation for the next Omnibus on here.

Cover by Geof Isherwood
Writers: Ty Templeton and Yann & Michel Brouillette
Artists: Richard Pace, Dan Parent, Geof Isherwood, David J. Cutler, Gibson Quarter (with Guilermo Ortego).
Price: $4.99
Full Color, 80 Pages Nordik and 8 Ball team up to elucidate cold blooded murders.  8 Ball and Black Terror bring down a counterfeiters ring.  The Canadian, Fleur-de-Lys and Nordik thwart a zombots attack in Riverdale, Toronto. A CDO agent discovers what it means to be The Canadian. A young orphan becomes Acadia.  All that in more in this 80 pages follow-up to the Heroes of the North: Dark Origins!

Last we'd heard, they had intended for this to be available in July but it bears pointing out that Ardden now includes it among their September releases. This clashes slightly with what Heroes of the North recently posted on their blog.
Mr. Richard Pace, who was to pencil and ink the most excellent Ty Templeton scripted comic of The Canadian had to bailed out of those duties for health reasons. Consequently, we now welcome Daniel Wong to the team, who will pick up on Mr. Pace’s duties and will heroically attempt to nevertheless help us deliver the book on time for the end of the month for the upcoming Heroes of the North: Missions comic book coming out this summer via Ardenn Entertainment. Which is where we remind you to order the book from your favourite comic book retailer!!! Hopefully we manage to make that deadline and get that wonderful story in the book!
The above was only posted on June 12th.  It would seem unusual that plans have changed that drastically in such a short time so perhaps the book will be available for purchase from their website before actually hitting stores in September.  In any event, it should be a good one!


  1. Diamond requests the solicit text several months in advance. Mr. Pace had to drop out in the interim but it was too late to modify the catalog listing.

    1. Got it. Thanks for the clarification.
