    PUBLICITY UPDATE FOR HEROES HC

    Expect significant and widespread publicity attention for the HEROES HC, based on NBC’s Emmy and Golden Globe® nominated television series Heroes. TV GUIDE has already debuted Jim Lee’s cover to the the book online, and will feature it in an upcoming print edition along with additional coverage of the book.

    In addition, mainstream press coverage for the book will include “off the book page” coverage in numerous major metropolitan newspapers, holiday gift guide recommendations and entertainment feature stories timed to the release of the book. But that's not all! Expect additional updates throughout the fall.

    The HEROES HC is available for advance reorder and is set to arrive in stores on November 7. Retailers with Diamond accounts may order it with either an Alex Ross cover (JUL078014) or a Jim Lee cover (JUL078015). As a reminder, the Jim Lee cover is available exclusively to retailers with Diamond accounts.
