‘The Heroes Union’ #1 coming August 2021 from Roger Stern, Ron Frenz, and Sal Buscema

With an action-packed, engrossing story featuring compelling new superheroes with names such as ‘Startup,’ ‘Windfall,’ ‘Protégé’ and more, ‘The Heroes Union’ #1.

Press Release

Launching August 4th, 2021 in comic book shops is a new superhero team called The Heroes Union. I’ve buried the lede, as the new book will be created by comics industry legends Roger Stern, Ron Frenz, and Sal Buscema. It’s the first of several planned releases that aim to make comics bingable as each issue will run over 60 pages and cost you only $4.99. It’s a family-friendly series that is particularly unique as it will be the first comic in over a decade to feature the official Comics Code Authority Seal.

“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,” said Binge Books creator, 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.”

For more on this news, read the official press release below. This news was first reported by Screenrant.

Los Angeles (May 18, 2021) – Acclaimed writer Roger Stern (The Avengers, Captain America) joins celebrated artists Ron Frenz (Thor, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Sal Buscema (Captain America, The Defenders) to chronicle the explosive journey of a marvelous new generation of superheroes in The Heroes Union #1. Arriving August 4, 2021, this is the first of several planned releases to be made available as a modernized, Binge Book edition. Created by veteran TV writer Darin Henry (“Seinfeld,” “Futurama,” “KC Undercover”), Binge Books are tailored for today’s audiences used to “bingeing” their favorite content. At 68 pages, The Heroes Union #1 will be longer than the average comic, allowing for the complete, family-friendly adventure to be released all at once as a standalone story for $4.99.

In addition to their length, Binge Books have a number of other attributes that make them unique in the comic space. The Heroes Union #1 reunites Stern and Frenz, the creative team behind the iconic Spider-Man story, “The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man,” (The Amazing Spider-Man #248). By special arrangement with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, The Heroes Union #1 will be the first comic in over a decade to feature the official Comics Code Authority Seal and each copy will also be uniquely numbered for collectors. The publisher has hinted that some of these numbered variants may eventually entitle their owners to additional perks, but further details have not yet been revealed.

With an action-packed, engrossing story featuring compelling new superheroes with names such as ‘Startup,’ ‘Windfall,’ ‘Protégé’ and more, The Heroes Union #1 will also offer adults a unique way to teach children about business.
