The Hero Business

The Hero Business

The Comic

Imagine your office, bitten by a radioactive spider. That's The Hero Business, a comic chronicling the day-to-day adventures of an agency that caters exclusively to super-heroes (and their super-egos). Because with great power comes great marketability.

Log in for a while and sink in our storylines, each one packed with fun office antics as well as shocking secrets. Or just drop in for a few done-in-one "Coffee Break" gags. But do become a regular... because The Hero Business is always looking for new recruits!

The Creator

Bill Walko: As a young lad, I hunkered over a bowl of Cap'n Crunch Berries every week and devoured a fresh batch of Saturday morning cartoons. These young fever dreams led to the creation of my first comic strip, Joe College, which ran in The Fairfield University Mirror and New Haven County's Hip Magazine. Following that, I crafted my first indie comic, Stiletto, which I sold as ashcans in local comic shops.

After a sojourn into graphic design and advertising, I returned to illustration. You might recognize my art from comic-related sites such as Project: Rooftop,, or CBR's Comics Should Be Good. Or commercial illustration resources like Shutterstock and iStockPhoto.

But I'm most proud of my own creative property, The Hero Business, a comic that combines my marketing know-how with my love of superheroes.

And once in a while, I still enjoy watching cartoons on a lazy Saturday morning while scarfing down a bowl of Cap'n Crunch Berries. Yeah, some things never change.
