Heroes Auction

I’ve been an avid follower of the Heroes TV show ever since the Flemish Network VT4 started airing the episodes in chunky two-in-a-row omnibus editions. Sweet ! Jack Bauer is so nowhere !

Briefly, the show deals with real-life people who turn out to have developed some supernatural abilities, such as a regenerative body, the ability to fly, etc. One of them, a painter, is able to see the future and paint it when he’s under the influence of heroin. The paintings he makes play a very important part in the series, as they help the characters to figure out where to go next.

The paintings’ style was eerily familiar, but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. However, Forbidden Planet comes to the rescue. They report on an auction to be held with the artwork, and its creator turns out to be none other than Tim Sale, who is only the creator of my favorite Batman story of all time (The Long Halloween), and also the artist of about the only readible Hulk story ever (Grey).

So there, mondays can be nice after all…
