HEROES REOPENING PLANS :: NEW BOOKS IN-STORE TODAY! HEROES IS OPEN WITH REGULATIONS!

May 20, 2020 By: Karla Southern Category: Feast Your Eyes, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, Looking Ahead, NEWS, Now Read This!, Spotlight on New Releases, This Just In, Uncategorized

 

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. 

    (We understand that some people do not want to wear a mask and, while we understand that is your personal preference, you will not be permitted in our store without a mask. We appreciate your patience, understanding and consideration for everyone’s safety at this time. If you do not want to wear a mask, or if you would prefer not to come inside the store until circumstances have improved, we are happy to arrange shipping for books.)  
     
  • We request that all customers utilize the provided hand sanitizer upon entering the store.  
     
  • Observe social distancing inside the store.
    Please be courteous to your fellow customers and allow for at least six feet of distance between yourself and others. 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.
    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.
    Until things are TRULY BACK TO NORMAL, our store hours may be affected.
    We will be open to the public TODAY, WEDNESDAY, MAY 20 from 1pm-9pm.
    Our hours going forward will be as follows until further notice:
    Monday-Tuesday & Thursday-Saturday: 10am-6pm
    Wednesday: 10am-9pm (tentatively)
    Sunday 1pm-6pm
     
  • We will keep you posted to any changes to our guidelines as they happen.

STAFF PICKS :: HE-MAN: THE ETERNITY WAR #7 :: JULY 1, 2015

June 30, 2015 By: Karla Southern Category: Reviews, Spotlight on New Releases, Staff Picks

staff_picks

karla_staff_picksKARLA’S PICK :: HE-MAN: THE ETERNITY WAR #7: Yeah, yeah, yeah…I know, BIG SURPRISE! My pick for the week is He-Man: The Eternity War #7. That’s almost like me saying, “Hey guys, you know what I REALLY like? BREATHING!! Breathing is AWESOME!!” All obviousness aside, however, I AM picking this issue for a reason other than my true and undying love of all things Masters of the Universe. Issue #7 picks up with a new creative team. Rob David and Dan Abnett take the story-crafting reigns for this arc while Edgar Salazar’s pencils bring a slightly edgier look to the Masters. The changes in artistic style are bold, but not detrimental as the story picks up with Skeletor, She-Ra and Skeletor’s minions trying to find a way to best Hordak now that Evil-Lyn has betrayed them. The story is solid and offers more insight into the current incarnation of Skeletor! There’s also some good moments with Shadow Weaver which made me happy! (I want more Princess of Power characters in my Master’s of the Universe!) The cover by Jonboy Meyers is also worth mentioning because, if you look closely, you can see twisted versions of classic She-Ra characters Madame Razz, Kowl and Glimmer in the mix!

STAFF PICKS :: THE NAO OF BROWN :: OCTOBER 03, 2012

October 01, 2012 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Spotlight on New Releases, Staff Picks

RICO’S PICK :: THE NAO OF BROWN: Glyn Dillon has had quite a career in and out of comics, from being part of the gang of cartoonists who created the fantastic UK magazine Deadline (where he worked on Tank Girl among other things) to various storyboarding gigs for film and television (including Gorillaz) and a bit of work on some early Vertigo comics (Shade the Changing Man, Egypt, & Sandman). But forget about all that. In The Nao of Brown Dillon has created something on his own, rich characters, new worlds (at least 4 in this story that overlap and intertwine). This book contains breath-taking art and story in a beautiful package. I’ll stop before this turns into a full blown book review, this is my favorite book of the year, it’s amazing, you should get it.

There is a great interview between Glyn Dillon and Paul Gravett here if you’d like to read a bit more and see 2 exclusive pages.

STAFF PICKS :: V FOR VENDETTA :: OCTOBER 03, 2012

September 28, 2012 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Spotlight on New Releases, Staff Picks

JUSTIN’S PICK :: V FOR VENDETTA BOOK AND MASK SET: Just in time for Halloween, you too can don the mask of everyone’s favorite anarchist dandy (just don’t wear it into the gas station). And to sweeten the deal, you get a copy of Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s masterful tale of poetic terrorism in totalitarian Britain. If you’ve only seen the film adaptation, you’re doing yourself a great disservice; V is truly one of Moore’s greatest accomplishments.

ANDY’S PICK :: V FOR VENDETTA BOOK AND MASK SET: Need a Halloween costume? Need to read one of the best graphic novels ever written (you heard me–EVER!!)?  Well then, look no further and do all your shopping with a single gift set. Vertigo is offering said gift set that includes V for Vendetta the graphic masterpiece written by Alan Moore and gorgeously drawn by David Lloyd along with a beautifully rendered Guy Fawkes mask just like the one worn by Vendetta’s main character V as he attempts to save a future Britain from itself.  Explosives sold separately. The time (to buy) is October 3rd. This is the voice of FATE. Heroesonline prevails!
