Between him and Tim Sale, the show's not cheaping out on the comic artists they hire.
I hear that. If it's an ongoing thing, they'll probably wind up rotating the artists. Hey, maybe around the end of the season, they'll collect it in a trade paperback. (And it'd be really cool if they could get Alex Ross to do the cover.)

Oh, I wonder if the writing staff has any comics writers on staff.

As for Tim Sale, I read somewhere that he likely won't do much on the online comic because apparently it would violate his contract with DC. They get away with using his art on the show because that's mostly paintings, but he can't really do comics for them.

From what I've read, Loeb is writing as well as producing.

Other than that, well, eh. I think the story is a little trite. The Action Comics #1 reference makes no sense, and I think the art, esp in the "I know what I must do!" panel, undercuts the story by making Hiro look like a demented grinning fool, which I don't think was the intent.

and there's one glaring error: the two locations for Hiro are swapped so according to the comic, he teleports from Tokyo to NYC instead of the other way around.
Are you sure that's an error? Because it looked to me like it was just a recap of what happened last episode, and then when you move on to the actual comic, it talks about teleporting back to Tokyo from NYC just as the blast hit.

Has anyone found any easter eggs in the Flash presentation of the comics? They've been hinting that there might be surprises in there. I tried scanning my mouse over the pages, but nothing jumped out at me.
ETA: Check the splash pages of the two comics for easter eggs; I found one in each. Thanks to Wikipedia for indicating what was there.

any particular reason why Hiro has to ransack his room for a comic he should know darn well is worth over a QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS?!
It's gotta be a reprint. He can't just rip out a cover (look, there's the panicky guy!) and turn it into art. I know American and Japanese cultures are different, but destroying valuable property is sick.
Remember, we're dealing with our time-traveller now. It's entirely possible for Hiro to go back to 1938 and buy another copy for his collection. (I was about to suggest that he'd get several and sell them for a profit, but that's not the super-Hiro way...)
I thought the same thing about the Action #1 and what it's worth,
Easy to find, and pretty cool. In each comic, use the controls to zoom in on the page with the eclipse behind Mohinder surrounded by smaller images of our heroes. Then click on that page. You'll be shown a line drawing that's actually a preview of the next issue. The egg in #1 was a page out of Hiro's story in #2. The egg for #2 seems to indicate that #3 will be about Nathan Petrelli.
