NBC's "Heroes Reborn" will follow its predecessor's path into comic books. Titan Comics announced Wednesday plans for a "Heroes" comic book series, based on the upcoming "Heroes Reborn" TV series. The new "Heroes" comic book will be written Seamus Fahey & Zach Craley, both "Heroes" TV writers, and illustrated by Rubine.
"Our new Heroes series is being created in close collaboration with the team behind the NBC show," Titan Publishing Director Chris Teather said in a press release. "These aren't just comics; they're bonus episodes!"
Titan's new "Heroes" comic is billed to start with a five-issue arc "featuring the origins of one of the series' new main characters." In 2007, during the run of the original "Heroes" series, DC Comics published two "Heroes" graphic novels with stories based on the show. In 2013, Dynamite announced plans for a "Heroes" comic series written by Cullen Bunn set to pick up where the show left off, but the comic was never released, and "Heroes Reborn" was subsequently announced, with a similar premise.
Titan's "Heroes" comic is set to debut in October. The 13-episode "Heroes Reborn" TV series is scheduled to start this fall.
