H E R O E S - THE HOTTEST TV SERIES OF THE YEAR GOES GRAPHIC

"Inventive, smartly written, nicely acted and beautifully shot... better than Lost, fresher than 24" � The Observer

LONDON -- October 12, 2007 -- Heroes is the hit BBC television series from executive producer/creator Tim Kring that has taken the world by storm. Having paid homage so heavily to comic books in the look and feel of the show, Tim Sale, the artist behind the series' iconic paintings, has teamed up with a host of other star creators to produce HEROES [Titan Books, 23 November 2007, 17.99lbs], through a licensing agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group.

Heroes is an epic drama that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities. A colossal success on both sides of the Atlantic, television series Heroes follows a disparate group of people across the United States and the world as they discover that they have superhuman powers, and find their destinies colliding as they struggle to avert a global catastrophe. With its tagline of 'Save the Cheerleader, Save the World' � the revelation of which made Variety's 'top ten dramatic TV moments of the year' � it has been the number one must-see show of 2007, and picked up a host of awards including a People's Choice Award and nominations in the Golden Globes and Emmys.

"One of the more memorable relationships in Season One was Hiro's first love, the waitress Charlie. We were as smitten as Hiro by that story and seized the chance to tell the full adventure of Hiro's six months in the past. Aury Wallington was hand picked by the writers of the show for her brilliant voice for these characters. The novel is a welcome addition to the Heroes family," said Tim Kring, creator-executive producer, Heroes.

"Heroes is simply the neatest fantasy on TV�Classic, clean-lined TV." � Entertainment Weekly

HEROES presents a collection of comic-book stories that take readers further into the characters' world, exploring the history and mythology of the heroes, revealing backstories and introducing new characters not seen in season one, all gloriously illustrated by top artists including Michael Turner (Justice League of America) and Phil Jiminez (The Invisibles). Featuring a stunning cover from award-winning comics legend Alex Ross, a previously unpublished gallery of Tim Sale's stunning artwork from the series, and introductions by the show's creator Tim Kring and time-bending star Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura), this is the ultimate companion for fans of the series and the perfect introduction for the as-yet uninitiated!

ABOUT THE SHOW

From creator/writer Tim Kring (NBC's Crossing Jordan) comes the Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Heroes, an epic drama that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities. In its first season, Heroes has been honored with a People's Choice Award, an AFI Award, a Multicultural Prism Award and this year's TV Land Future Classic Award, as well as nominations at the Golden Globe Awards, NAACP Image Awards, WGA Awards and Satellite Awards.

The cast includes a genetics professor (Sendhil Ramamurthy, Blind Guy Driving) in India who is led by his father's disappearance to uncover a secret theory � that there are people with super powers living among us. Also featured are a young dreamer (Milo Ventimiglia, Gilmore Girls) who tries to convince his politician brother (Adrian Pasdar, Judging Amy) that he can fly. A high school cheerleader (Hayden Panettiere, Ice Princess) learns that she is totally indestructible while trying to relate to her father (Jack Coleman, Dynasty) who has a keen interest in people with special abilities. A Las Vegas single mother (Ali Larter, Final Destination) struggles to make ends meet to support her young son (Noah Gray-Cabey, My Wife & Kids) and discovers that her mirror image has a secret. In addition, a fugitive from justice (Leonard Roberts, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) continues to baffle authorities. A gifted artist (Santiago Cabrera, Empire), whose drug addiction is destroying his life and relationship with his girlfriend (Tawny Cypress, Third Watch), and whose paintings, done specifically for the show by comic book artist Tim Sale, open a visual gateway to a possible dark future. A down-on-his-luck Los Angeles beat cop (Greg Grunberg, Alias) can hear people's thoughts, which puts him on the trail of an elusive serial killer. In Japan, a young man (Masi Oka, NBC's Scrubs) develops a way to stop time through sheer will power.

Joining Kring as executive producer are Dennis Hammer (NBC's Crossing Jordan), Allan Arkush (NBC's Crossing Jordan) and Greg Beeman (Smallville). The drama is produced by Universal Media Studios in association with Tailwind Productions.
