GN screencap

Looks like they're gonna stretch out Linda's next novel. That's okay, this was a rather cool novel. The Haitian is back with HRG, Sanjog Iyer too, plus a new ability, and a new mystery that looks like could have a part 2. Can anyone grab the photo of Sanjog inside Piper's eyeglasses? I think that would make a good screencap for the novel.--MiamiVolts (talk) 05:25, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

At first I thought MiamiVolts was pranking us

For a while, I had thought about designing a fake graphic novel page to be put up on april fool's day, since it would fall on a tuesday. I had some ideas floating around, like "Cold Blood" that talked about how Sylar stole the Freezing power from JAes Walker. And then when people clicked on the links to read it, they would be treated to Rick Astley. So of course, when I got here I saw through the recent changes that Miami had added "elasticity" to the GN powers page and I thought "oh wow, that's even better! I can't wait to see how people react to this fake GN of his!"

But I found out it was all real. Dangit.

It was still a great Graphic Novel, anyways.--Piemanmoo 05:28, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

  • Heh, you think maybe NBC is going to pull this novel and replace it with Linda's? They've done two novels before. Anyways, Happy April Fool's day.--MiamiVolts (talk) 05:31, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
    • We should start doing April Fool's in the future. "Volume Three airs today!" And then create a fake episode for it, with crossovers and plot twists and everything. Even pictures. --DocM 09:27, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
      • I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of April Fools pranks so I really wouldn't go for it. (Admin 09:45, 1 April 2008 (EDT))
        • Totally agree. I hate to be a spoilsport, but I would consider April Fool's jokes to be one step below vandalism. I know, I'm just an old fart. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:01, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
          • When I read this I though Ooo, bendyness. :) -Lөvөl 12:02, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
            • It's confession time: I actually wrote a script for NBC during the writer's strike which featured a character with the power of elasticity. The script wasn't needed because about the time that I submitted it, the strike ended and the writers came back. But it's nice to know that my power choice wasn't too far off the mark! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:37, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
              • Assuming you weren't pulling our leg (pun intended, heh ;)), that'd be pretty cool.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:41, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
                • No, no leg pulling (see my post above). Joe Tolerico was in charge of all the graphic novels and asked me to submit one. He's focusing on just Evolutions now, and really doesn't have much to do with the GNs. There's still a chance I might write one in the fall, but that's very much up in the air. In the meantime, NBC has plenty of guest writers to cycle through before they hire on new guys. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:44, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
                  • You mean write a second one? I'm assuming NBC will save the script you submitted, used or unused.--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:05, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
                    • Probably not. I mean, they have it in their possession, but it's just a sample script. Sure, it could be used at any time (I wrote it so it wouldn't need to fit into the chronology of the show or the other graphic novels). But I'm sure that if they want me to write a script, they'll give me a subject, or a specific storyline to focus on. We'll see, we'll see. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:09, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
                      • I'd love the opportunity to write a graphic novel. --DocM 21:30, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
                        • Yes, me too. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:56, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
                          • It is indeed a great opportunity Ryan got. FWIW, there are several online sites that allow people to publish fan-fiction such as Of course, getting your novel drawn and colored by a professional artist is a different story--it's a bit harder to accomplish and much more cherished. On a similar note, anyone hear any word on when Create Your Hero will continue?--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:48, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
                            • Voting is finished, I think. No results have been announced. I get an update email from Joe once every week or two. The last one was two weeks ago, so he's probably due for another, assuming he's not swamped with work. That's the most I know. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:01, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
                              • If I ever got the chance to write a graphic novel, I'd write about a time traveller, just to irritate people. --DocM 08:18, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
                                • Oy, I wouldn't ever want to touch time travel! The graphic novel I submitted had a few different powers (some we've seen, some we haven't), but I'm going to refrain from saying too much more about it.... :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:47, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
                                  • I have a passion for time travel. I'd make it a four-part series, only the series is done backwards. And when people read that the last one is actually the first one, it'll be on a completely different level. --DocM 11:47, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
                                    • That's sort of the way the Linda Tavara novels are working out. War Buddies, Part 6 had Linderman's meeting with Petrelli (how did he get that address?). Then War Buddies, Part 7 went back a bit and told us about Linda's notebook, and introduced us to Linda (but who was her informant?). Bounty Hunter went further back and answered that question. R.D. Hall wrote the next chapter of the set (to be released on Tuesday), which goes back a bit further in time and gives us some more background, and finally Jason Badower is finishing up the series which takes place in 1967. Pretty nice structure! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:56, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
                                  • I would love to write a graphic novel. :) It would probably turn into an epic 50-part story pretty quickly, though. All my writing ends up like that. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 15:09, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
                                    • Right, here's my plan. Become friends with Joe Tolerico and work from there. It'll be zen. --DocM 16:19, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
                                      • Nope, that route won't work ... unless there's another strike! Joe is no longer in charge of the novels. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:56, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
                                        • Right, here's my plan. Become friends with whomever is in charge of the graphic novels, and work from there. It'll be zen. --DocM 17:03, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
                                          • Yeah, that'll work. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:10, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
                                            • I hope it does. I want to write some novels. --DocM 20:59, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

The Other Debbie

Might Piper's sister be Debbie Marshall? Hmm. They at least look similar...--MiamiVolts (talk) 05:45, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

  • Thats exactly what I thought when I read it too but that makes no sense whatsoever - not that that's ever been a problem for the Powers That Be --Yamawhata? 16:43, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
    • Actually, I'm thinking it makes perfect sense if Debbie was brainwashed by the Haitian.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:19, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

Questions for Micah

If anybody has any questions for Micah about his art, feel free to submit them here. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:31, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

Is that really everything?

I'm asking myself one question about the GNs for several weeks now: Is that everything we're going to get to see about our heroes until September? This novels about characters that only appear once and then disappear into nowhere, where they obviously originated, are really starting to annoy me. I'm always excited when I hit heroeswiki every Tuesday, if there's gonna be an exciting or unraveling novel, but no... cheesy novels about Ben Franklin or this "Hey, I'm in your dreams to help you, but actually I can do a shit to do so"-boy. Man, I want some characters I can relate to. I have to admit, that I enjoyed the story about Noah getting his glasses, but 80% of the novels that have appeared since the season 2 finale just sucked like a**. I mean wouldn't you also like to see what happens meanwhile with our heroes? Or at least what happened to the main cast sometime between season 1 and 2, that was cut out or dropped from the script, because the episode would've been too long? --BloodyFox, 17:52, 1 April 2008 (CEST)

According to NBC Digital, the graphic novels aren't all we'll be getting until this fall. Webisodes will start up this July. --Psiphiorg 15:52, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

We have been exposed to some pretty kindred cold wars. No, I do not know what "kindred" means.

We are well past the second coming of these bad jokes. So let's stop (Although which of these jokes do you think is the better half?).--ERROR 12:01, 11 June 2009 (EDT)

Dream Study

On there is a submission by a Piper J, it has some similarities but there in a lot that is different. Oddly the GN is very similar to the dream I submitted, I will see if I have a copy. -Lөvөl 12:02, 1 April 2008 (EDT)


The kid in the Soma shirt is totally Theo from the Aspen series Shrugged.--Leshia 03:37, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
