Dynamite Entertainment is bringing the Heroes series back as a comic book. It will be written by Marvel and DC veteran Cullen Bunn, a fan of the TV series.
“To me, this is picking up the story and taking it from where it left off,” he told Comic Book Resources, “but there is a big curveball right from issue #1 of the comic. That will set a lot of what we’ve seen in the series on its ear. It’ll change a lot, but this is essentially the continuation of the TV series.”
He added, “Right off the bat, Claire is going to be our point of view character. The first issue is centered more on her than anyone else. That said, you’re going to see most of those core characters early on in the first few issues. Hiro was the character I always liked most in the show for a number of reasons. So you’ll be seeing him and Sylar and a bunch of others who will get thrown back into the story early on. Claire, Hiro and Sylar will be big right off the bat, but it won’t be long before you see all the core characters.”
According to Bunn, readers should expect an anthology-like series instead of over-arcing stories like the television series.He noted, “This is an ensemble cast, but each issue will probably focus on one or two characters more than the others. It’ll have a rotating feel.”
No word on who will be drawing the comic or when it will be released. Bunn shared, “It’s a little too early to talk about who’s drawing because they wanted to get some of my scripts in first and see who should draw it. But how these characters view this world in that sense is going to be a major part of the story.”
