I really enjoyed the original Heroes series, the first season at least. The series started losing me as it went on, and the whole final season with the circus, yeah, so didn’t do it for me. Having seen the first two episodes of Heroes Reborn, I’m willing to give the series another chance. It has some interesting characters, but the current villain isn’t doing it for me. Sylar was much more compelling, but it is still early. One of the things I loved about the series was the way that comics were used to fill in parts of the story that weren’t shown. I happy to see with this announcement that the association will continue. Titan Comics has done a good job with the Doctor Who comics, so I’m expecting good things for series as well.
