Created by the J. Robert Bryans, the former animation coordinator Pinky Dinky Doo, which was broadcast on PBS, the series N Guard is a creative twist on the hero franchise since the superheroes are from the animal kingdom. In N Guard four animal friends, Boon, Katnip, Klondike and Quickstep find themselves drawn into the middle of an age old conflict between the benevolent Mother Nature and the tyrannical subterranean Sectrix Empire. Now the Champions of Nature, our four heroes are bestowed mystical powers from the elements themselves and together, they become N Guard, the last hope of Forestya. Creator J. Robert Bryans stated, "I'm so proud that my publisher Markosia has formed a strategic partnership with the powerhouse of Global Genesis Group in producing N Guard. N Guard is a labor of love for me, and now with the talent and skills of GGG, children the world over won't have to wait much longer to see our heroes. Let's Get Wild!!!!"
Rick Romano, President of Global Genesis Group is also excited about the partnership with Markosia, "Global Genesis Group is very strong in the super hero world in kid's animation, so we have been actively searching for the right strategic partner in the comic book space, and with N Guard we were introduced to Markosia. N Guard is the first comic book in a much bigger strategic alliance that is being negotiated. They will be the ideal strategic partner with us."

Harry Markos, the owner of Markosia stated, "I am delighted to be partnering with GGG and super-excited at the prospect of seeing N-Guard on the screen where it belongs. The moment Jon Bryans sent me the pitch for this I knew that it was perfect for an animated series and I told him as much! I am now looking forward to working closely with GGG to help make N-Guard the success that it deserves to be."
Charles Morris Jr., VP of Development & Acquisitions at Global Genesis Group said, "Rocket Raccoon step aside, there's a new group of animal sheriffs in town.
