Late again, or has the time moved?

Looks like the novel is late again, or else they've moved the release time till after noon now. This is the second week in a row they've delayed the release...--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:51, 7 August 2007 (EDT)

Officially later than last week (which I got at 1:09PM Eastern). In case you can't tell I really need my Heroes fix. :)--Walters 13:19, 7 August 2007 (EDT)

Last panel... naming

Ok, the resemblance to Angela now is uncanny. But since the novel didn't give out her real name and they are refering to her now as Fusor, is it okay to change around the names of who is the accomplice? I would think that it would be okay now, but just want to make sure.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:23, 7 August 2007 (EDT)

  • When did they refer to her as Fusor? The only thing I saw was in the journal/notes, when they said Fusor was a decoy and the woman was his partner. The blurb before the GN (which is usually a recap of what happened in the previous GNs) said they found a shocking clue to Fusor's true identity...which was that he wasn't an evolved human. Seems like Fusor is still Fusor and the woman is still unnamed. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:36, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
    • In the blurb, they say that Claude and Haram renew their pursuit for the killer Fusor, learn that 'Fusor' has found new prey, and also that find a shocking clue to Fusor's true identity. I guess, now, that that can be taken in more than one way, but I originally took it as confirmation that Fusor was an alias.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:01, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
      • I take it as a recap of the past GN, which is accurate--Fusor took new prey: the Paris hotel victim guy. His big identity secret: he's still human. In the GN itself, they refer to Fusor as a man and the accomplice as a woman. Besides, I'm not sure who writes the blurbs on the page preceding the GN, but I don't think it's the writers. Oh well. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:04, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
        • I'm not sure how to interpret the blurb at the beginning. It seems most natural to read it as saying that Fusor is really the woman. But Ryan is absolutely right. The dialog in the novel itself is unambiguous. Fusor was the apparently non-special man, and the still anonymous woman is the water vampire. And the in-novel dialog should take precedence over the intro-blurb, especially when the former is clear and the latter is ambiguous.--E rowe 17:38, 7 August 2007 (EDT)

Re: other characters

Baldibobbo is right. I'll include the other characters as visitors to the locations since their contribution is small.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:14, 7 August 2007 (EDT)

Part 4 theories

Ok, so I took a stab on how part 4 may play out. You can check it out here, if you're interested.--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:03, 8 August 2007 (EDT)


What does this Trivia comment mean "This was the first graphic novel also to be presented in an animated format"? I thought all GNs were animated? What makes it different than the other cartoons? --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 08/9/2007 16:42 (EST)

  • Check out the last External Link. That's the "animated format" the trivia is referring to. (Admin 17:07, 9 August 2007 (EDT))
    • Just to clarify Admin's comment, animated refers to moving drawings. Besides the interactive and pdf (static) versions of the novel, this is the first time NBC has released a video version in which the graphic novel plays like a cartoon.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:11, 9 August 2007 (EDT)
      • My browser craps out when I try to load it. Anyone have the link to the video file?--Bob 17:21, 9 August 2007 (EDT)
        • Couldn't find just a video link, but here is a more direct one.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:09, 9 August 2007 (EDT)
