We’re not going far but we’ll be out in force at the Charlotte Comicon this Sunday, December 15th and we’re bringing the A-Team! Shelton, Seth, Phil, Karla, Winslow and Zach will all be there to help you with all your comic book shopping. We’ll be bringing all our good stuff from the Golden Age all the way up to what’s new and hot this week!
If you’re at the show, you can pick up copies of Harley Quinn #0 with a couple of weeks to create your cover masterpiece by the December 31st due date and be entered in our Art Exhibition at Charlotte MiniCon . If you’ve already completed yours, we’ll be collecting finished covers at the show too! More information HERE!
Also, we’ve been putting it off because we’ve been so busy this short holiday season but our Big Holiday Sale will be next weekend, December 21-22! Look for more details soon right here on our blog. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up-to-date with the latest Heroes news!
See you Sunday at Charlotte Comicon!
Get your pencils sharpened! When you buy the Harley Quinn #0 sketch variant and regular edition for $10 you will be giving $5 to the Red Cross for Typhoon relief in the Philippines. Also, if you draw Harley on your cover and get it back to us by December 31st you could be awarded prizes at our Charlotte MiniCon on January 25th! Your covers will be judged by Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmiotti! Buy yours online or in the store! More information HERE!
In case you missed hearing about this at our recent Charlotte MiniCon, Heroes is teaming with writer Matt Fraction for a special offer benefiting the American Red Cross and their Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Fraction wrote a special stand alone issue for Hawkeye #7 that directly deals with the hurricane. In addition to writing the story, Fraction is donating all of his royalties from the issue to the Red Cross. That means the more copies people buy, the more money the Red Cross will make.
In conjunction with Fraction and the Red Cross, Heroes is offering a special signed copy of Hawkeye #7 for $10. As of this writing, there are less than 100 copies still available. You can stop by the store and reserve your copy today. All of the money we receive for this book will go entirely to the Red Cross, and each transaction will be kept separate from other store purchases. Our costs for the book, shipping, and Matt’s time are all being handled by us and aren’t included in the $10 price of the book. That means all of the money will go straight to the Red Cross and their relief efforts. We’d also encourage you to donate more than $10 for the book if you’re able.
We applaud Fraction and his work to maintain awareness of the Red Cross and their work helping those afflicted by Hurricane Sandy. Reserve your copy of Hawkeye #7 today and help us raise money for those who desperately need it.
Charlotte Mini-Con is fast approaching, and with all the “AMAZING” things we have in store for you, we’d also like to direct your attention to some of the wonderful charities that we will be hosting at Sunday’s show.
The Charlotte Chapter of the American Red Cross will be on site raising funds for Hurricane Sandy Relief as well as for various other disaster relief causes. For a minimum donation of $10.00 to the American Red Cross attendees can reserve a copy of Hawkeye #7 signed by writer Matt Fraction. (more…)
Charlotte MiniCon is just a few days away now! Sunday January 20th from 11am to 5pm the Grady Cole Center will be filled with great comic creators, comic book vendors, cosplayers and much more!
