  • Already purchased and looking forward to its arrival! (Admin 01:38, 31 October 2007 (EDT))
    • I can see myself in a few years owning a stack of these.--Citizen 12:39, 31 October 2007
      • And how do you see yourself now? Owning a stack of these? --mc_hammark 17:02, 16 October 2009 (EDT)
        • Haha, I never did buy them.--Citizen 17:34, 16 October 2009 (EDT)

Lead Image

...needs to be 450x350.--Hardvice (talk) 11:01, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

  • I've been looking for an image that can be cropped, but it's not easy. I was trying to crop the premiere issue front page to include the logo but you get a bit of the main title, so that's no good.--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  15:22, 10 November 2007 (EST)

Release today

So we should expect this article to grow if it is released today. We might want to include a list for sections and all new canon details hiding inside the magazine. -- Riffsyphon1024 13:54, 20 November 2007 (EST)


So I got a subscription for this for Christmas (yay!) and as I was reading this, I wondered where exactly this would fit in terms of canonicity. I'm thinking near-canon (oh by the way, according to the magazine Godsend took place on October 18th). --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 19:56, 26 December 2007 (EST)

  • I don't have the magazine, so I can't speak empirically, but I would say that the interviews would be considered the same as the interviews from other sources. I assume there is no new "story", so it would not be on the same level as a graphic novel or Heroes Evolutions. If there is new information (like the date of Godsend), if it can be verified that it came from a writer or director or another crew member, then I would consider the information to be on par with the episode commentaries or a CBR Q&A. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:41, 26 December 2007 (EST)

What the heck-?

  • Why do Issues 3 and 4 look nearly identical? --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 00:21, 20 February 2008 (EST)
    • You mean issues 2 and 3??? Issues 2 and 3 have the same background image. For issue 3, looks like they used the same background and just added a few article highlights.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:25, 20 February 2008 (EST)
    • I couldn't tell you. And good luck trying to find any concrete information on either one. I think it's a mistake. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:26, 20 February 2008 (EST)
      • The one labeled as issue 3 is really issue 2. The one labeled as issue 2 is just missing some cover blurbs.--Leshia 03:38, 20 February 2008 (EST)
        • The one with Claire is clearly marked as #4 why was it changed to #3? -Lөvөl 13:34, 20 February 2008 (EST)
          • I think that's just the "cover" to the fourth online article archive thing. The real cover to issue 3 will most likely be that with some extra blurbs around Claire, like Hiro on "issues" 2 and 3.--Leshia 13:39, 20 February 2008 (EST)
            • Yeah, this really makes no sense to me. According to NBC, there are five issues, but issues 2 and 3 have almost identical covers, as do issues 4 and 5. I'm torn whether to combine the like covers and supersede NBC's postings, or to go with what's officially written on NBC despite it looking silly. I don't buy the magazines, so I don't have first-hand experience with them. My gut says to revert back to what NBC has. If we link it all back to NBC, then we're not the ones who look like they have egg on their faces. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:06, 17 March 2008 (EDT)
              • The NBC site splits content from one bi-monthly magazine into two monthly archives. The site covers don't match up with what gets put out.--Leshia 18:57, 8 April 2008 (EDT)
                • I don't get the magazines, so I can't speak empirically. But let's go with what actually comes out rather than what NBC says. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:54, 9 April 2008 (EDT)

Just updated with titles etc.

Now I need to know if someone has a copy of the first issue. I never bought a copy of the first issue, so if someone has it can you update the issue 1 section please. And can you use the same format that I have. Keep the articles in order that they are in the magazine. Don't include the competitions, fan mail or news, they are noted at the top as regular features. thanks. --mc_hammark 07:54, 27 October 2009 (EDT)

Last Issue

I was reading Issue 12 and realized that there's a goodbye message on the last page starting off with, "Sadly, this will be the last issue of Heroes Magazine." It goes on to thank the readers and NBC, etc. and comes with a sheet that allows you to switch your Titan Magazine subscription. --Heroes360 15:19, 14 December 2009 (EST)

  • Yup. I noticed it when I got it last week. I've updated the page to say it. --mc_hammark 15:21, 14 December 2009 (EST)

Reborn Series

Hey, so I noticed earlier in the super market that there was a Heroes Reborn magazine. Anyone else know about this? ~~IHHTalk 14:43, 4 October 2015 (EDT)

  • Here you go. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:54, 4 October 2015 (EDT)
    • So, you updated this page with a release date of Oct 6, how did I already see it in the super market?? ~~IHHTalk 23:30, 4 October 2015 (EDT)
      • Are you in England? I don't know the release date there, but it's usually a few days earlier than the states... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:57, 4 October 2015 (EDT)
        • I am in the United States. Kansas even, so nothing spectacular about it. ~~IHHTalk 00:01, 5 October 2015 (EDT)
          • Weird. Not Kansas -- that's totally normal. But it's weird because every website I've seen (Titan, CBR, etc.) all say that October 6 is when the magazine is released. Well, let me know if you can find a better release date. Until then, I'll just put October 2015. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:11, 5 October 2015 (EDT)
