Oy Vey! Masi Oka Lives Comic Geek Fantasy

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Heroes star Masi Oka is finally coming of age by appearing in comic books.

Oka – who plays time traveling Hiro Nakamura on the supernatural show – has been drawn into a series of Heroes graphic novels on NBC.com, and he’s totally giddy about it.

As an avid comic book reader, Oka is flattered by the drawings of himself and other Heroes characters, which are done by “amazing artists.”

He says, “I got excited when I got a caricature drawn of myself at a [friend’s] Bar Mitzvah, so to be in a real comic book is incredible!”

Oka also likes seeing his face on Heroes toys, including one goofy figurine.

He says, “There’s a bobble head of my character out there. I mean, what more could a guy want? Maybe Underoos.”

Heroes airs Mondays on NBC.
