    ACTION COMICS #858 AND BATMAN #670 GET VARIANT COVERS

    DC Comics has added special variant covers editions to two key titles for October: ACTION COMICS #858 and BATMAN #670!

    BATMAN #670 features the debut of new series artist Tony Daniel, who joins writer Grant Morrison with this issue’s special prelude to the upcoming “Resurrection of Ra’s Al Ghul” storyline. The Standard Edition of this issue features a cover by Tony Daniel; the Variant Edition features a pencils-only version of the same art.

    For every 25 copies of the BATMAN #670 Standard Edition (AUG070228), retailers may order one copy of the BATMAN #670 Variant Edition (JUN078156). This issue is solicited in the August Previews, and is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 31 with a cover price of $2.99 U.S.

    In ACTION COMICS #858, new series penciller Gary Frank joins writer Geoff Johns for the extra-length first chapter of “Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes,” which spins out of the recent “Lightning Saga” storyline from JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA. Both the Standard and Variant Editions of this issue feature covers by Gary Frank.

    For every 10 copies of the ACTION COMICS #858 Standard Edition (AUG070236), retailers may order one copy of the ACTION COMICS #858 Variant Edition (JUN078155). This 40-page issue is solicited in the August Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 31 with a cover price of $3.50 U.S.

    DC COMICS ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE FOR GRAPHIC NOVEL BASED ON NBC’S EMMY AND GOLDEN GLOBE® NOMINATED HIT SERIES “HEROES”

    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.
