A series of comics that somewhat loosely connect with the t.v. show. Some of the comics didn't make much sense even though I did watch the show. An okay collection but nothing noteworthy. ( )

If you read this without knowing at least some of the Heroes universe, you are left with a disjointed, incomplete series of comics. While the artwork is interesting, it eerie how some panels seem spot on, near real life while others...aren't. ( )

"Heroes: Volume 1" is a collection of the first 34 online comics that were posted on the website for the television science-fiction series “Heroes” during its first season.
The comics augment the television storyline by letting us see additional parts of the story which could not have been easily done in the show because of budget/time/feasibility constraints. I believe the book is better suited for those of us who have watched the series. There are many characters, some of which show up in the comics very briefly, so it may be confusing to non-viewers.
Many artists contributed to the series of comics, so not all of the chapters have the same artwork. Naturally, some art is better than others, and some of the artwork is stunningly beautiful!
Everyone who has seen the show should enjoy this hardcover book. It is a nice supplement to the show.

Ugh. Boring. For the most part, it follows characters that appeared momentarily on the show coupled with side tales for characters that we know and love with little to no character growth for the latter. Almost half the book follows Hana Gitelman who appears in one episode of the show and I don't believe was even given a name in the show. If you haven't watched the show, it's nearly unreadable. If you do watch the show, it adds almost nothing of substance. ( )

Love the show, but this companion was merely "ok". ( )
