    DC COMICS' HEROES VOL. 2 HC NOW TO FEATURE TWO SPECTACULAR COVERS

    NEW FINAL ORDER CUTOFF SET FOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2

    HEROES VOL. 2, the second hardcover graphic novel collecting stories based on NBC's award-winning TV series "Heroes," now will feature two breathtaking covers.

    The HEROES VOL. 2 Standard Edition HC, available to all booksellers, features portraits of the series characters pulled from stories in this volume.

    The new HEROES VOL. 2 Variant Edition HC, available exclusively to retailers with Diamond accounts, features artwork by Eisner Award-winning artist Gene Ha.

    Set to arrive in stores on November 19 with a cover price of $29.99 U.S., the HEROES VOL. 2 Standard Edition HC (JUL080198) and Variant Edition HC (AUG088062) have a new Final Order Cutoff of Thursday, October 2. Orders placed after this date may be allocated.

    Retailers may adjust orders on the HEROES VOL. 2 Standard Edition HC (JUL080198) now through the new Final Order Cutoff date of October 2. Retailers who do not adjust their orders will receive the covers in a split of approximately 50/50.
