I really enjoyed the first TV season of Heroes, so when I saw this graphic novel (booksized collection of comics), I looked forward to it. I found myself for the most part disappointed. The artwork varies from great to not so good. Sometimes within the length of a couple frames. Some of the stories really make no sense, they are just little blips. Being familiar with the series I thought I should be able to figure them all out - but I didn't. Some of the drawings are good representations of the characters and some are not. And with minimal dialogue you cannot always tell who is who. There were several good story arcs included in the collection, so it isn't a waste, but I would have to say that this collection is really only for a hardcore dedicated Heroes fan who has to have it all. A much better supplement to the Heroes mythos is the novel "Saving Charlie" by Aury Wallington.

an excellent addition to the tv series. it tells stories that didn't fit into the regular broadcast. it really helps to open up some of the characters, explain some back stories, and just expand the whole experience of the show. the artwork is also really great. loved it.

I found this book while browsing the graphic novel section at a local library and decided to give it a try. This turned out to be a huge mistake, as I soon realized you *have* to watch the show to understand the comics. I kind of figured the book was using the same characters but doing different stories, but the comics are more like brief snippets continuing what happened after each week¿s episodes. I¿d imagine if you were a fan of the show, you would absolutely love these comics for giving more of the story. For me, a person who¿s never seen even one episode, I spent the whole time reading this book with my eyebrows furrowed. Some of the time, the characters¿ names weren¿t even told, so I was completely lost for those parts of the book. Overall, the graphics were great and the stories seemed interesting although vague to the non-viewer, but I wouldn¿t recommend unless you watch the show regularly.

Fantastic comic book spin off of the popular television series. Keeps you on the edge with its glimpses into the lives of these "heroes".

I'm not a connoisseur of graphic novels, so I can't review this book for it's merits in that genre. However, I can review it as a fan of the television show Heroes. The Heroes graphic novel is basically additional scenes from the first season of the television show. It fills in gaps and gives additional information about Heroes plot lines. Recommended for fans who want to know more about their favorite Heroes.

I got caught up reading this graphic novel. I think I finished it in a couple of hours because I never wanted to put it down! I think that watching the television series helped me to understand the plot more, but all of the extra information was amazing. Definately worth reading if you loved the series!

If you enjoy the show then you will love this book. It takes you back in time to before season one and fills you in on all the back stories for all of the characters. Also some characters that got left out by the television show get a much bigger role in the book. A must read for Heroes fans.

This show heroes is a good action packed show. Everybody in this show has a power and some people have powers and don't know about it.I have watched this show since volume one.
