THE HEROES UNION (Roger Stern / Ron Frenz, Sal Buscema)

"Naucrate the Auteur Cosmic — half the universe celebrates her genius, the other half cowers before her world-shattering power. And the only ones who can stop her are Earth&'s foremost super-group… The Heroes Union!

Legendary creators Roger Stern (The Avengers), Ron Frenz (Thor) and Sal Buscema (Captain America) unite to chronicle the adventures of a marvelous new generation of heroes in a cosmic epic bursting with so many breathtaking twists and thrills, it should probably come with seat belts!"

The Heroes Union #1 is the first in several planned Binge Book releases, who plan on specializing in graphic novel-length stories, but in the physical format of a comic book. Bing Books publisher Darin Henry compares the format to European style ‹ comic albums. ›

« Like millions of other kids, I grew up devouring comics by Roger Stern, Ron Frenz, and Sal Buscema, so to have some of the 20th century’s greatest creators introducing readers to the 21st Century’s greatest heroes is a personal and professional dream come true, » says Binge Books’ founder/publisher Darin Henry. « I was inspired to create Binge Books by European comic albums like TinTin and Asterix because I wanted to publish affordable graphic novellas for US readers to enjoy. »

The Binge Books format is a 68-page comic book priced at $4.99. Each comic book will have a limited print run, with each copy uniquely numbered for collectors.

And arguably most unique of all is that The Heroes Union #1 will be the first comic in over a decade to be ‹ approved › by the defunct Comics Code Authority. Binge Books has worked out a deal with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which owns the Comics Code Authority seal, to have this bear the CCA approval stamp.

The Heroes Union #1 goes on sale on August 4.

Ah j’ai un pote qui m’a envoyé quelques productions de ce petit éditeur, il me semble avoir fait un petit mot quelque part. Enfin bref, c’est tout à fait sympathique et réjouissant.
