DC COMICS :: (W) John Ridley(A) Giuseppe Camuncoli, Andrea Cucchi
Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Let It Fall) examines the mythology of the DC Universe in this compelling new miniseries that reframes iconic moments of DC history and charts a previously unexplored sociopolitical thread as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.This unique new series presents its story as prose by Ridley married with beautifully realized illustrations by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Andrea Cucchi. Issue #1 follows the story of Jefferson Pierce, the man who will one day become Black Lightning, as he makes his way from being a young track star to a teacher and, ultimately, to his role as a hero.Future issues focus on characters such as Karen and Mal Duncan, Tatsu Yamashiro, and Renee Montoya.Extensively researched and masterfully executed, The Other History of the DC Universe promises to be an experience unlike any other. You may think you know the history of the DC Universe…but the truth is far more complex. The Other History of the DC Universe isn’t about saving the world—it’s about having the strength to simply be who you are.

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2020 ::

Like 99% of 2020’s regularly scheduled events, the pandemic forced the cancellation of this year’s “Free Comic Book Day” event which would have been held on the first Saturday in May.
Once printing and production resumed, in late June, this year’s Free Comic Book Day books began shipping a few titles a week. Instead of releasing those books a few at a time over the course of months, we decided to hold our books until Labor Day so that we could make them all available during our Anniversary Sale! There will still be some Free Comic Book Day titles that won’t ship until after Labor Day, but this will be the bulk of this years selections. Please keep in mind that, while you are more than welcome to pick up multiple FCBD titles, quantities are limited. We will limit all available titles to no more than ONE PER-CUSTOMER in order to ensure that as many customers benefit as possible!

We hope to see you there!!

NEW COMICS ARE IN-STORE TODAY!

Heroes received the first shipment of NEW COMICS since March 25 today, Wednesday, May 20.

With careful consideration for the continued safety of our customers, as well as our staff, we will be open to the public on Wednesday, May 20 from 1pm-9pm with the following guidelines:

  • We will limit the number of people allowed in the store to NO MORE THAN 3 people at a time.
    Until further notice we are limiting access inside the store. We will provide access to NEW product on racks located just inside the front door and the counter, but we will discourage browsing the racks until further notice. If you would like us to check the rack for a previous issue or trade, we are happy to do that for you! We do this to limit your exposure as well as our own during this opening period.
     
  • We ask that customers limit their time in our store for now.
    There will be plenty of time for browsing and visiting with one another once restrictions have been lifted and circumstances have improved. For now, in an effort to prevent customer wait-times and attend to as many customers as possible in a timely manner, we ask that you make your visit as brief as possible. 

     
  • Everyone (including staff) will be required to wear a mask while shopping or working inside of our store.
    If you do not have a mask, one can be provided to you.

  • During this time we ask customers to be mindful of how much they handle books and other product.
    While we will be sanitizing all surfaces and high-contact areas as frequently as possible, we cannot sanitize comic books without causing damage. We ask that customers please be mindful of items as they handle them, and wash their hands or use hand sanitizer after contact. 
     
  • We will be sanitizing and washing our hands after every transaction and as often as possible.  
    If at all possible, we would prefer that customers pay with a credit or debit card at this time. We will still accept cash transactions, but cards are easier for everyone to sanitize at this time. If we do have a cash transaction we will be washing our hands thoroughly afterwards.
     
  • We ask anyone who feels unwell to please stay at home (this includes our staff).  
     
  • We have installed a new Point-Of-Sale system. (Thanks Elias!)
    Check-out may take a little longer as we acclimate to this new system, and we appreciate your patience! Once we have the hang of things, it should be easier to update your reserve list and keep track of what we have in stock! We also have the ability to invoices Reserve Customers who would like to pay for their books in advance and either pick up curb-side or have their subscription shipped (shipping fees will apply).
     
  • Our hours may be different until further notice.

If another customer is browsing in the section that you would like to browse, we ask that you please be patient and wait for your turn. We’re all in this together and showing each other respect will go a long way!!  
     
  • During this time we ask customers to be mindful of how much they handle books and other product.
    We will be sanitizing all surfaces and high-contact areas as frequently as possible, but we cannot sanitize comic books without causing damage. We ask that customers please be mindful of items as they handle them, and wash their hands or use hand sanitizer after contact. 
     
  • We will be sanitizing and washing our hands after every transaction and as often as possible.  
     
  • We ask anyone who feels unwell to please stay at home (this includes our staff).  
     
  • We have installed a new Point-Of-Sale system. (Thanks Elias!)
    Check-out may take a little longer as we acclimate to this new system, and we appreciate your patience! Once we have the hang of things, it should be easier to update your reserve list and keep track of what we have in stock!  
     
  • Our hours may be different until further notice.
    Until things are TRULY BACK TO NORMAL, our store hours may be affected.
    For now, expect our hours to remain Monday-Saturday: 10AM-6PM and Sunday: 1PM-6PM.
     
  • We will keep you posted to any changes to our guidelines as they happen.
    Please follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) or sign up for our Newsletter for regular updates!

 

This sobering piece was created by our dear friend, formidable artist, and long-time HeroesCon supporter, Patrick Dean. It illustrates the importance of placing health and safety above commerce. We understand the need and desire for a return of commerce, and we have felt the financial impact of these difficult times as much as anyone. That being said, we feel an incredible responsibility to act in the best interest of EVERYONE, not only the healthy and the strong. These times won’t be safe for ANYONE until they’re safe for EVERYONE, and we need to work together to find a balance until the world can finally breathe again.

DOING OUR BEST:

We care about the well-being of ALL of our customers and staff and are doing everything in our power to keep everyone safe and healthy during this time.
The following precautions are being taken by our staff:

  1. We are disinfecting surfaces several times an hour with antibacterial wipes and sprays.
  2. We have hand sanitizer on-hand and our employees sanitize and wash their hands as frequently as possible with hot water and antibacterial soap.
  3. Any staff member who has a cough, sniffle, temperature, or is feeling generally unwell, will stay home and avoid contact with others.
  4. We are reviewing CDC recommendations daily and will adjust any procedures as necessary.

RESERVE ORDERS:
We will continue to order enough product to cover our subscribers and any customer requests made in advance. If we are sold-out of a title you are looking for, we may be able to reorder those items. Please let us know if you are missing a title you wanted to pick up. If you are aware of a title that will be coming out over the next several weeks/months that you would like to reserve, we ask that you please request those items in advance if possible so that we might have the best opportunity to fulfill your want-list.

Again, we are adjusting to our new Point-Of-Sale system at this time. If you are a Reserve Customer, please make sure we have your current contact information. If you are a Reserve Customer, and you have not heard from us over the past month, please call or send us an email to ensure we have your current information on file! (heroesarenthardtofind@gmail.com)

We hope you are all doing well, and are being kind to one another!
We look forward to seeing you all again very soon!

The following are basic precautions recommended by the CDC:

  2. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
  3. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, particularly your eyes, nose and mouth.
  4. Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  5. If you cough or sneeze, use a shirt sleeve or tissue, not your hands. Then, wash your hands again.
  6. Practice Social-Distancing, which means putting at least 6 feet in between yourself and anyone near you in public spaces.
  7. If you must greet others, avoid handshakes or hugs. Opt for waves or an elbow bump. (We like using Mr. Spock’s token hand gesture!)
  8. Keep your work area well sanitized.
  9. If you aren’t feeling well and are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, please restrict your exposure and seek medical attention if necessary.
  10. Cover your face with a mask or cloth face covering if you must go out in public.
