    Volume 1 - 1st Printing, limited to 500 copies. Cover by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott. Stories by Richard Hughes, credited as Shane O'Shea, Pierre Alonzo and Zev Zimmer. Art by Pete Costanza, Chic Stone, Tom Hickey, Bob Oksner, Paul Reinman, Charles Nicholas, Sal Trapani, and Steve Ditko. Sometimes listed as ACG's Heroes or Heroes Collection. Superhero stories from legendary early independent comics publisher ACG. This volume collects the origins of ACGs heroes Nemesis and Magicman, as well as adventures of such lesser luminaries as Crash Kid, Mark Midnight, and John Force, Magic Agent. Sergeant Kilkenny, suspected of being Magicman, is sent to solve a string of murders, so the real Magicman tags along.  The Crime Crusader and Kewpie visit a gambling yacht to free a wealthy mans nephew from his gambling debts. The Crash Kid joins forces with the daughter of a murdered Asian businessman to track down the Black Dragon Cult. The cover is a real curiosity: originally a Stuntman pinup (from the 1979 Kirby Masterworks portfolio), it was later licensed and re-inked by longtime FF inker Joe Sinnott to portray Magicman.
