24 has been my favorite show since 2002, when I bought both Seasons (or, as fans say, 'Days') 1 & 2 on DVD. Ever since, along w/ buying all of the Season BoxSets, I've amassed all of the books (Season Companions, Declassified paperback novels, referance books), all the 24 Official Magazine issues, trading cards, apparel, & even a Jack Bauer action figure! I mention this to demonstrate how loyal & 'die-hard' of a fan I am & how picky I am re: 24 merchandise. I bought the 24 trade paperback graphic novel by IDW w/ a LOT of speculation & VERY low expectations...I thought 'How could 24 be put into comic/graphic novel form w/ any type of realism?' I was wrong! The comic stays in the real-time format, & the stories/characters are familiar of the 24 vibe, not to mention faithful. 1 page, front & back, is equal to 1 hour of time. It's a great piece of 24 merch, & a welcome addition to my massive 24 collection.
i havent read the book yet but im on the third season on the tv show. i love this show so much. there are so many surprises and shocking events. keifer sutherland is the best actotr and i love the part he plays. him and tony are pretty much the only ones you can really trust. i dont even feel good about chase. the first season is about the mom and kim getting kidnapped by a guy named gaines. the other side of the story is that back at ctu there are two moles that you would never in a million years would expect. the ending of the season is INCREDIBLE! the other side of the story is that a terrorist organization is plotting to assassinate senator david palmer. the reason being is that two years ago, palmer autorized a mission called "nightfall" in belgrade. the purpose of the mission was to kill a terrorist named victor drazen. and the people behind the assassination were victor's two sons;alexis and andre. the drazens want revenge on palmer for the mission to kill thier father. and just to add more to the problem; the leader of the mission was none other than jack bauer himself. the second season is about a necular bomb set to detonate in los angeles within the next 24 hours. this is a much more complicated story than the first season. this story is just phenomanol and the best season. the big question is will jack and the rest of ctu be able to stop these terrorists or will millions of people be killed in the explosion? the third season is the best so far. its about this drug lord ramon salazar a terrorist in prison, being the man in the middle of something terrible and deadly to all of los angeles. the fbi recieves a phone call threatening the release of a deadly virus in los angeles if ramon salazar is not released from prison in the next six hours. another day of non-stop action and suspense.
