Fans of the one-time rating juggernaut Heroes can rejoice as Dynamite Entertainment along with licensing partner NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products has announced plans to reintroducing the superhuman drama with former Marvel Comics exclusive writer Cullen Bunn writing the scripts.

cullen-bunn-fullBunn, who may be the only writer left in the world who doesn't have a Wikipedia page, came to fame with his creator owned series The Sixth Gun then eventually signing an exclusive with Marvel where he got to work on Wolverine, Captain America, Deadpool and the Fearless Defenders.

Bunn talked about his approach to the series,

Like so many others, I was a huge fan of Heroes during its original run. I was drawn to a cast of characters with interesting back stories and development, a setting boiling over with potential, and — of course — the exploration of superpowers in a 'real' world scenario. With this book, I have the opportunity to contribute to the mythology of the series in a way that will surprise readers.  When I was watching the show, I never could have imagined the direction I'd be taking the story.  The narrative I'm developing will be multi-layered, complex, and character-focused, and it will shake up the Heroes storyline in a major way.  I don't think anyone is expecting what we have in store for Claire, Hiro, Peter, Niki, Sylar, and the rest of the gang.

HeroesPromoArtNick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite, had this to say about Cullen and the reintroduction of Heroes – the TV series,

Heroes has had great heights, and then, well, didn't.  Cullen is one of the few creators who can create a tapestry to bring the characters in to a new light and new life for comics.  When you see what he's doing, you'll be as excited as we are.

No publication dates were given at this time.
