"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. ( )

I always intended on reading this (a collection of all 34 webcomics from the first season of Heroes) right after it was released. Two more seasons of Heroes went by before I randomly picked it up while browsing my library's graphic novel selection, and I'm rather glad I waited.

It's generally known that seasons 2 and 3 of the show haven't been very well received by fans. I didn't come down quite as hard on them as many fans did, although I no longer looked forward to it with impatient eagerness. It even took me until the middle of June to finally get around to watching the last three episodes of season 3.

This webcomic collection took me back to when the show and characters were mysterious and a joy to watch. Seeing Eden and DL again was nice, although it just reminded me what a shame it was that we lost THEM and then got subjected to the annoying twins who killed everyone with their stupid eye power. Every webcomic gives another layer to the show; they're not necessary for enjoying the show, but it's cool seeing extra backstory in the comic medium. One character who we met only briefly on the show, Hana Gitelman, gets fleshed out with a full story that really should have made it to the screen.

The writers did a good job with this, and I'm planning on seeking out the next volume, even though it covers parts of the series that I liked less. ( )

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

I wish I'd known about these comics when the series was airing! They are a great complement to season 1, if a bit confusing at times since it's been so long since I watched it. ( )
