DC Comics Announces Release Date for Heroes Hardcover

Heroes hardcover coverPress Release

On November 7, DC Comics will publish HEROES, a hardcover graphic novel collection based on NBC’s Emmy and Golden Globe® nominated television series “Heroes,” featuring covers by comic book superstars Alex Ross and Jim Lee and an introduction by “Heroes” star Masi Oka (Hiro). The stories, which mark the first printed graphic novel adaptation of the show, were originally created for the “Heroes” website at NBC.com (www.NBC.com/Heroes) where new chapters continue to be exclusively available. The collection spotlights the fluid artwork of legendary comic book artist Tim Sale (BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN), whose work was featured prominently during the first season of the series through the visuals created by a drug-addled painter with apocalyptic visions of the future. In addition, the hardcover collects the work of an all-star cast of television and comic book creators, including Michael Turner, Phil Jimenez, Koi Turnbull, Marcus To and more

The book will be published under DC’s WildStorm imprint. It is developed through a licensing agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group

“We’re thrilled that Wildstorm is bringing the online comics to the printed page for the very first time. They’ve worked painstakingly with every aspect of the publication – from the color to the paper, to the printing itself – to make sure this is a spectacularly handsome collection. The Alex Ross and Jim Lee variant covers as well as The Tim Sale Gallery are wonderful bonuses. If you’re a fan of the show, we’re sure that you’ll want to share in this amazing experience,” said Tim Kring, creator-executive producer, “Heroes.”

“Heroes” returns to NBC for its second season on Monday, Sept. 24, 2007, at 9:00 p.m. EST. Season 1 becomes available on DVD and HD DVD on Aug. 28, 2007.
