Not as strong as the first volume, but still very entertaining. I really like the idea of publishing a graphic novel that goes along with a tv show. It adds a whole new dimension to the viewing process. This volume, just like the first, highlights the back stories of some of the characters from season two. Specifically we learn the back stories of the secondary characters such as the Haitian (very scary), Claude (the invisible man), Elle (my favorite from season two), and West. We also learn a bit more of how Adam (Kensei, whoever) in the four hundred years since Hiro defeated him in Japan until he reemerges locked in The Company with Peter. He just may have the most interesting story of all the Heroes characters. “The Ten Brides of Takezo Kensei” proves that Adam really does have a heart in their somewhere. It was sad, understandable.
I finished the second volume of the graphic novel right along with the second season of the tv show. Now to tackle the third season. That’s where I lost interest the first time around. I am determined to finish the series. Wish me luck.
