DC Comics has announced plans to publish a hardcover collection of graphic novels based on NBC’s Emmy and Golden Globe nominated “Heroes,” from executive producer-creator Tim Kring.
The stories, which mark the first printed graphic novel adaptation of the show, were originally created for and new chapters continue to be exclusively available on NBC’s “Heroes” website. The collection will also feature the artwork of legendary comic book artist Tim Sale (“Batman: The Long Halloween”), whose work was featured prominently throughout the first season of the series through the visuals created by a drug-addled painter with apocalyptic visions of the future.
The book is slated to reach stores this fall and will be published under DC’s WildStorm imprint. It is developed through a licensing agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group.
“We are very excited to be releasing the compilation of ‘Heroes’ comics through DC Comics. Until now, most of these stories have only been available on NBC.com. To have this first printing coming from DC, the premier publisher of comic books, is a dream come true,” said Tim Kring, creator-executive producer, “Heroes.”
