JMS Takes Credit for ‘Heroes’

…well not really.

Entertainment Weekly has a surprisingly coherent article about Heroes and its similarities and possible debts to comic books such as The Uncanny X-Men and Rising Stars. In the article they speak to comic pros such as Jeph Loeb (producer on the show), J. Michael Straczynski (creator of Rising Stars) and Joe Quesada (you know who he is, right?).

This is a very interesting article that is very critical of the show and the show’s creator’s assertion that he never read comics that it seems to be oddly similar to.
