Attention, Heroes fans: The series is making a comeback! (Sort of.)
Dynamite Entertainment is reviving the NBC show, which went off the air in 2010, as a comic book, according to Comic Book Resources. The books will pick up right where the television series left off, CBR reports.
Writer Cullen Bunn will author the continuation, which he says he views as “Heroes Season 5.” “I was a faithful viewer of Heroes when it was on television,” Bunn told CBR. “I really want to delve into these characters more.”
The comic books will feature all the core characters from the show, Bunn says. Each book will focus on one or two characters specifically and be told from a different character’s point of view.
“Right off the bat, Claire is going to be our point of view character,” Bunn told CBR. “The first issue is centered more on her than anyone else. … 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.”
The comics are scheduled to debut later this year. Are you excited about the news?
