Hardcore Heroes fans are already well aware of NBC’s usage of webisodes and other such online media to tide over the audience between episodes and seasons. However, the network will now expand upon this by introducing a summer series of online graphic novels.
The best part, however, is that these web comics will also expand the Heroes universe by introducing 12 brand new characters.
Making things even jucier is that the “e-graphic novels”, as Aspen Comics Vice President and artist Frank Mastromauro describes them, will be episodic in nature rather than one shot, stand alone stories. The storyline was intended to lead up to the new season of Heroes (season 3) beginning in September.
So keep your eyes peeled. I’m sure this is something you won’t want to miss!
