Dy's Take

Heroes: Volume Two by Chuck Kim

I enjoyed volume 1 a lot more.  This book, and volume 1 as well, is a bound collection of the short comics the network runs on the “Heroes” website during the regular TV season.

It may just be that I was too far behind the curve on this, but I could scarcely remember half the characters in this one.  A few were recognizable, but most were people never introduced in the series, or else characters that were bit players and are no longer actively part of the story in the latest season of the show.

One particular GLARING inconsistency between series and comic drove me nuts—a character whose conflict with his brother becomes a major plot device for a couple of the tv episodes is an only child in the comic and his father dies in his childhood. Only one story works, ABC—pick one, please.

Still not thrilled with the art either, and think it actually declined in quality since volume one.

Or I could just be writing this after a night of insomnia and be  bit crank.  Happens, ya know.

5/10
