List of Heroes graphic novels

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of issues of NBC's Heroes webcomic, which supplements the television drama of the same name. The comics, which NBC refers to as graphic novels, were made available on their official website each Tuesday[1] as part of the Heroes Evolutions experience, starting with Monsters whose release coincided with the first episode of the show.[2] They ceased publication on June 9, 2010 with the release of From the Files of Primatech, Part 8. Written by the show's writers and drawn by Aspen Comics,[3] they were generally 7-9 pages long, the first page of which is always an advertisement for a vehicle made by Nissan, one of the sponsors for the series. The comics give additional character background and plot information not shown in the television episodes.

WildStorm, a subsidiary of DC Comics released the first 34 chapters in a hardcover volume on November 7, 2007 entitled "Volume One", with a softcover version released later. The collection also includes Tim Sale's artwork as seen on the show.[4] "Volume Two" was released on November 19, 2008, and includes chapters 35-80 bound in a hardcover book.[5]

The comics are available in both PDF and Flash formats; the PDF versions are linked below. The Flash versions often offer a link to a "hidden surprise", also listed below. A few also have an animated version.
