This insightful collection of essays weighs in on the incredible appeal of the new hit show Heroes and why it has attracted such a diverse and devoted following. Featuring archetypal characters with a twist—including a time traveler, a painter prophet, a schizophrenic stripper, and an evil villain out to steal the others’ powers—the show lures viewers in with its fresh interpretation of classic themes and conspiracy theory plots. By examining the history of comic books in film and television, leading television analysts reveal the show’s multifaceted influences and shed light on how Heroes reflects its comic book ancestors and modern-day kin such as Lost. The creative mastermind behind the show, Tim Kring, and the intense nature of pop culture fandom are also discussed, with brief episode guides serving as a reminder of the complex web the show is weaving.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing, shallow, and sloppy 14. Oktober 2010
Von Jemiah Jefferson - Veröffentlicht auf
As a dyed-in-the-wool, hardcore Heroes fan, I would have bought this book even if I'd known it was going to be superficial and incomplete, having been put together while the third season was still being put together and the fourth season still in the future. Unfortunately, as someone who works in publishing, I've become very sensitive to typographical errors, misspellings, inaccuracies, guesswork, and poor quality printing and binding. "Saving The World" features all of these drawbacks. To its credit, it is mostly a good-looking book, and the emphasis was placed on design aesthetics and photographs of the characters, some of them rare. Nonetheless, I was hoping (and I suppose, will continue to hope, until I do it myself) for a book with a greater degree of depth and critical analysis of a series rich in subtext, background, influence, and expertise. This book should not have been inferior to the (very fluffy) official fan magazine, but even the magazine had greater depth. As a series characterized by a nearly endless succession of bungles ranging from the network to the publicity and lack of serious focus, "Saving The World" perfectly encapsulates the levels of staggering incompetence and lack of quality control that characterized so much of the tie-in material. The world may never know exactly what went wrong, and where - I know I'm curious as hell - but this book is just a symptom.

For absolute completists only.

The show itself is getting a little dated and it gets some hate now and then, but it's great. Watch the entire series on Netflix and then buy this book, you won't regret it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Heroes 11. Februar 2009
Von Mark H. Lynn - Veröffentlicht auf
As someone who had already watched seasons 1, 2, and the first three episodes of 3 I was interested in a little more in depth information into the series. I have enjoyed most of the book. In my case I could have done with out the comparison to the Lost Series, that isn't why I purchased the book. While it may have served a purpose to other readers, I found myself skimming to get through it back to the more detailed Heroes information I sought. Had it not been for that I would have given it a 5 star rating
