The snag was that NBC is also interested in what I have to say. So at their request, we're going to setup a space on 9thWonders.com for me to officially talk about the Heroes graphic novels. Schedule allowing, I'll post there every week after the comic goes online and go into more detail about the creation process behind bringing these to life.
They're still working on some technical details but I'm told that things will be ready next Monday. If you subscribe to my blog here or follow me on twitter I'll be sure and let you know when it's ready.
So, what is this blog going to be about?
- It's still going to be about Heroes. That's what I do for about 70 hours a week -- yeah, that's 40% of my life -- so there'll be plenty of Heroes stuff to talk about. Other topics that may or may not get covered...
- My wedding: I'm getting married in less than 4 months to the love of my life. (See #4 for more).
- Our dog: In grade school most kids write about their dogs. I never got that chance, so I'll be making up for lost time and subjecting all of you to it. Right now our dog has an itchy butt.
- Teaching my fiancee (lets go ahead and start calling her "Abby") to play video games: I think this may be one of the crowning achievements of my life. As of about two years ago Abby had never even played video games. Today she head-caps zombies in Left 4 Dead like she was born to do it. Did I mention we're getting married? Do I need any further explanation as to why? I didn't think so...
A quick FYI, this chapter takes place in the Heroes timeline at the same time as episode 314 (A Clear and Present Danger) when everyone was rounded up. Rebellion will continue through the summer and explore what Rebel was up to during the Fugitives arc. I'll talk about this specific chapter and more of our summer plans on 9thWonders once everything is setup over there.
We're also hard at work in the writers room breaking story for Season 4 of Heroes. NBC gave us an official pickup today which is good considering we've been working for several weeks already. Things are going well, and we've been making a lot of progress.
Please post comments, I'll do my best to reply and if you want even more behind-the-scenes Heroes news be sure to follow me on Twitter!
