Umm, what do you mean?

From Comic 1: Mohinder is afraid of monsters
2: Hiro's Grandfather started him on comics. Hiro isn't a pun on Hero. Hiro is named after Hiroshima.
3: We see Nathan in the show portray to be a heartless ass who might turn evil. This comic sees he does care and he does use it for good.
4: Claire didn't want Quarterback rapist to die. He finds out she's a "freak" BEFORE the paramedics came. Which is why he was calling her a *****, et al at the beginning of the episode.
5: We can't really stipulate much from this one on DL Hawkins. All we know is that he didn't know he had such power until he got angry at the police officer and got out of the handcuffs. He had to try to do it again and hurt his knuckles in the process. We know he's protective of his family too from both the comic and the show.
6: If we read this comic before the previous one, we would have thought DL's "skills" was that he was able to reach his hand in and just take the money. Also, we might not have known how Niki got the new car. Now we do. Furthermore, I'm assuming DL hasn't come into the show yet in this comic, we wouldn't have known Jessica killed DL's crew ( Warren, Itchy, Taylor) if we didn't read this. Also, we stipulate that now, 6 months after, Jessica got the laundered money and put it in the "attic" right after the car was bought.
7: In one of the eps, Audrey says something like "You didn't tell me your badge was suspended for punching a detective" (who was his best friend, Tom McHenry)
8: Isaac sees the future when he's high. We know that. But on the night of his show, he injects and sees himself as a monster. Later, at the show, the girl he painted getting hit by a bus punches him. He doesn't know what he painted was the future until that night and chasing her to her death. This may be why he has Simone sell his paintings and he doesn't socialize anymore.
9: Eden's name is not Eden. Which is why Sylar, and most likely Chandra as well, couldn't find her.. "the power of persuasion" person. Eden's power began as a young girl. She caused her father and stepmother to separate and her father left for good. Everything that she said happened. Her step-mother died b/c of her words. Somehow, she grew up to be quite pretty after having to do all the housework. Anyways, in an episode HRG said something like "Remember how you were before I found you". Now she knows how to control her power.
10: Audrey is reckless and naive. She doesn't know what she's dealing with. Furthermore, she shot an innocent person. Matt might be a good influence on her. Sylar likes to tease the gov't. He wants attention.
11: Eden's father is an *******. We find out Eden was a prostitute. HRG has a short temper. I guess HRG considered Eden as a secondary family. Sylar gets tranquilized. Eden probably shot herself. We're not sure about that still.
12: Peter will wear tights and a cape. Peter will rob a bank. Peter will somehow have a jet pack that will make untouchable. Peter will Peter will fight himself. Man vs. himself conflict. Well in his coma dreams anyways. lol

No, no, no, no, no, no... He's asking about the extra panels, hidden images and plot teasers that buried within the comic and have to found by clicking on the panels, etc...

I don't blame you. I find the normal interface to be almost crippling to my computers memory.

mhm And I don't like how it takes about 20-25 secs to load each page. I rather wait 2-3 minutes to load the pdf and read it straight thru

Yeah, I too lack patience with the interactive max version and would rather save and read the pdfs instead. However, folks over on the 9th Wonders Board have always been great at finding the hidden surprises (or easter eggs, as the artists call them) and call them out on this thread - http://www.9thwonders.com/boards/index.php?showtopic=17582

Also if you're interested in more hidden stuff, check out the NBC official cast pages, e.g. http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/cast/isaac.shtml - there are plenty of links embedded throughout.

I've summarized the first 12 comic "easter eggs" in the cut below:
1 Hiro B&W comic sketch - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/hiro_line_01.jpg
2 Nathan B&W comic sketch - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/nathan_line_01.jpg
3 Nathan's campaign commercial (video clip) - http://video.nbc.com/player.html?dlid=37083
4 Link to Claire's official MySpace site (go to Zach's page from here too) - http://www.myspace.com/clairebennet
5 Link to Claire's official MySpace site (go to Zach's page from here too) - http://www.myspace.com/clairebennet
6 Isaac's painting of Peter and flying lockers - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/HRS_PeterDoor2.jpg
7 Isaac's painting of Sylar which Peter completed - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/HRS_SylarGymFlr_clr.jpg
8 Isaac's painting of Hiro and Ando under the Homecoming banner - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/HRS_HiroAndo1.jpg
9 BTS photo with Claire and Peter - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/HRS_HomecomingBTS.jpg
10 BTS photo with Matt and Audrey - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/audry.jpg
11 Isaac's exploding man painting - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/energyman.jpg
12 BTS photo of Peter - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/peter_ee.jpg

OH!!! These!. I saw the first 2 when I first read the first 2 comics interactively. I clicked something and then the pics popped out. I didn't know what they were so I ignored them.

LOL. It was worse on the SG-Command.Net boards. I ended up using a pic of me and Michael as my avatar to make it more obvious.

lol. That's why I like Gender to be listed on the posts. I usually try not to say "he/she" and use the person's username instead.

Of course though, "space_monkey" doesn't exactly sound like a girl's name... but that's just my opinion.

I always feel kind of awkward when I have been talking on boards with someone for a while, assume they are of one gender, and then find out they are another. (I am a girl by the way)

As for the Easter Eggs in the comics, I never found them myself, when I tried to look at them through their program it made firefox freeze every time, so I went with the PDF, so thank you to the person who posted links about some of them.

Yeah I hate that. But "Xander" should be obvious, shouldn't it? (ALE)Xander.

You're welcome! Real credit goes to all the fans at the 9th Wonders board. I only had time and patience for to look for a few of these links, but when combined efforts with all of them there, it was easy to put everything together. Also, in case folks hadn't heard, the weekly webcomics should resume next week - so check it out at http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/
