Ghost Riders: Heaven's on it! Yeah, it's that good.

Guess you might need a little more eh? Well Ghost Rider is Marvels premier "horror" genre comic and well it owns the category.

Space Hulk: First Contact

Oh yeah! it's back and better than ever! A game that you probably all remember and loved!


From the depths of space an ancient vessel drifts slowly towards the Imperium of Mankind - a space hulk. Within its confines, untold thousands of Genestealers slowly emerge from hibernation. The Space Marines must enter the cramped corridors and tomb-like chambers of the ancient ship to defeat this alien menace.

Space Hulk is a board game for two players, recreating the battles fought between the Space Marines and Genestealers. One player commands the Space Marines as they carry out deadly missions in the ancient Space Hulk, and the other commands the horde of Genestealers opposing them. Space Hulk's fast-paced rules simulate the tense atmosphere of a mission deep inside the cramped confines of a derelict space hulk, where split-second decisions are needed for victory.


This boxed game contains: a 23-page Rulebook, a 47-page Mission book and 35 finely-detailed, plastic Citadel miniatures, including: 11 Space Marine Terminators, one Space Marine Terminator Librarian, 22 Genestealers, and one Broodlord.

Also included are: 105 gaming counters, 24 corridors, 10 rooms, eight crossroads, eight T-junctions, six corner sections, four dead ends, four end pieces, 20 doors with plastic stands, one mission status display, and three plastic mission objectives, including: a dead Space Marine on throne, a Blood Angels artefact and a Cyber-Altered Task Unit. Plus a sand timer and five bone-coloured dice unique to this game.

Space Hulk: First Contact will be $118.75 and available September 5th, so if you wanna make sure you get a copy please let Heroes World staff know!

Luke Cage Noir

So last week in comics we saw Luke Cage Noir #1 and it was good stuff! Taking place during Prohibition-era Harlem it's a great romp into the whole noir genre...and it does such a good job with Luke's character i actually thought i was reading his actual origin instead of a noir book. Also Tombstone shows up and he's badass!

Robin Search for a Hero TPB!

Probably one of my all time favorite books, it's the final Robin story arc in TPB. You've already heard me rave about how great a character Tim Drake is, so now you can read one of his best story lines. Batman is gone, and Gotham seems to have gone mad with super villains running a muck and gangs out of control. What is a boy wonder to do? Well he steps up so to speak and goes to some extreme measures, most of which involves some serious strategic planning and a cold cold attitude. Also who is this new Red Robin?!? Includes art by one of the most underrated artists I know Freddie Williams II.

Find out all this and more in Robin Search for a Hero on sale today for only $24.99!

Red Robin!

DC just released some images from Red Robin #6!!

Red Robin is all part of the Batman Reborn Saga, and you'll follow Tim Drake's (Previous Robin) quest to prove Bruce is still out there. Drake has grown into such a great character especially during the final events of Batman RIP. He differs from Nightwing who is more of a lighter Batman where as Tim was becoming a very dark and goal oriented like the original Batman. He's alot colder and ruthless in his pursuit of "acomplishing the mission" very much like batman. In the last issue of Red Robin, Tim was seen calling up old batman nemesis Ra's ah Ghul.
If your not reading Red Robin and your enjoying the Batman Reborn stuff i highly recommend you check it out!
