While on a field trip to the legendary Stones of Nature, Boon, Kat Nip, Klondike and Quickstep find themselves drawn into an age-old conflict between Willow, the Mother of Nature and the vile SpiderSect Empire. Reluctantly, our heroes are propelled into the fray when Mother Nature bestows to them the fabled Amulets of Nature, granting them astonishing powers. Together, they become N-Guard.
"When Jon Bryans got in touch I remembered him from a year previously when he'd pitched N-Guard to us," says publisher Harry Markos. "Back then it was a completely different property to what he brought to us the second time around, and I was very impressed with his persistence and determination to make it work. In addition to that N-Guard looked amazing in its new format, which helped! I thought it was about time we had an all ages book again, so it was a very easy decision for me. It is a fresh and dynamic book which I think will go a long way. We've already had interest from animation studios, which I think would be a perfect fit, and I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot more about N-Guard over the next year or so. The first series is already completed and we're discussing a second series for 2009. I'm looking forward to it!"
