Before we get to the HeroesCon festivities, we’ll be hosting Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 7. The store will be open regular hours that day from 10am – 7pm. As with last year, we will have limited quantities available on the designated free comics.

If you are a reserve customer who would like to reserve any of these titles, please send an email to heroespulls@gmail.com by no later than Thursday, May 5.
We’ll do our best to fulfill each request, but please remember that quantities are very limited.

Everyone who comes into the store on that day will have the option of picking several different titles while supplies last. We’ll have staff on hand to help navigate the proceedings. As in years past, taking multiple copies of the same title will be prohibited. We’re happy to have Free Comic Book Day back in May again, but want to make sure we have comics for as many customers as possible. 

As per the updated Mecklenburg County mandate, we will NOT be requiring masks in the store for this event.
We still encourage social distancing, which remains a nice, neighborly practice for all of us to observe. As in years past, we may also limit the number of people in the store at a given time. This is done in part to keep what will certainly be a warm day from becoming too uncomfortable for the customers in our store.

Because of our continued work on HeroesCon, we will NOT be hosting any artists at our Free Comic Book Day event this year.
Our tiny staff is hard at work bringing the HeroesCon back, and this year will be our largest one yet! With hundreds of incredible artists in attendance in June, we will be working right up to the show to make it the 40th Anniversary HeroesCon that you have all been waiting for.

Free Comic Book Day will be lots of fun for everyone, and a great way to kick off HeroesCon season!

As always, we appreciate your enthusiasm and continued support!

SAFE SHOPPING UPDATE :: MASKS STILL RECOMMENDED

February 25, 2022 By: Karla Southern Category: Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, NEWS, Now Read This!

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2021

Effective February 26, Mecklenburg County will rescind the indoor mask mandate.

While we honor the county’s decision, we strongly advise, recommend, and appreciate that customers continue to wear masks while in our store.

We still recommend that you put reasonable distance between yourself and others while shopping, because let’s face it, THAT’S JUST GOOD MANNERS. As we head into the necessary preparatory months for the Heroes Convention, we hope to keep our customers and staff as healthy as possible.

We’re already hard at work to make it the Heroes Con you’ve all been missing and anticipating.

We encourage everyone to GET VACCINATED.
Here is a list of vaccination sites for the Charlotte and surrounding areas:

Atrium Health

Atrium Health Vaccination Events

CVS

Novant Health

Walgreens

Vaccine FAQ from the NCDHHS

Our entire staff is fully vaccinated and will be wearing masks until further notice as well.

We will keep our capacity to 100% unless instructed otherwise.
We still recommend that you put reasonable distance between yourself and others while shopping, because let’s face it, THAT’S JUST GOOD MANNERS.  

CONTINUED SAFE SHOPPING GUIDELINES:

  • We will provide hand sanitizer for you to use upon entering and exiting the store.  
     
  • Please be respectful of social distance and personal space while in our store.
    That’s just common sense. Don’t crowd others while shopping, it’s creepy. 
     
  • Staff will continue to sanitize and wash our hands as often as possible.  
     
  • WE ASK THAT ANYONE WHO FEELS UNWELL TO PLEASE STAY HOME. (This includes our staff!)
    That is ALSO good common sense. If you feel unwell, STAY HOME!
     
  • WE CAN SHIP!!
    We can ship to anyone, anywhere! (Well, anywhere that USPS or UPS delivers…so maybe not SPACE??)
     
  • OUR HOURS:
    Monday-Tuesday & Thursday-Saturday: 10am-7pm

    Wednesday: 10am-9pm
    Sunday: 1pm-6pm

JLA/AVENGERS FOR HERO INITIATIVE

February 17, 2022 By: Karla Southern Category: Comics Industry, DISCUSS, Exclusives, Feast Your Eyes, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, Looking Ahead, NEWS, Now Read This!, Spotlight on New Releases, This Just In

JLA/AVENGERS FOR HERO INITIATIVE

This week a new limited printing of the classic JLA/Avengers crossover by George Pérez and Kurt Busiek was announced. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Hero Initiative, a favorite charity of our beloved Mr. Pérez. This long out of print collection is currently set to receive a print run of 7000 copies.

While all of us are understandably excited about this title being available again, and even happier that George has seen the outpouring of enthusiasm, this limited run means that it will be impossible for everyone who wants a copy to get one.

Like every shop in the country, we have been bombarded with requests for copies. We have received requests in the store, over the phone, on social media, and over email.

While we have ordered as many copies as we can,
we have to state the obvious:
MASS ALLOCATIONS WILL OCCUR FOR THIS BOOK, AND THE DEMAND WILL CERTAINLY OUTWEIGH THE SUPPLY.

As a result of these circumstances, we have made the decision to AUCTION OFF whatever copies we may receive, with ALL PROCEEDS going directly to the Hero Initiative on behalf of Mr. George Pérez.

In the unlikely event that the print run is expanded we may revise or reconsider our plans. At this time, it seems that auctioning off whatever copies we DO receive is the only FAIR way to honor the legacy of Mr. Pérez and Mr. Busiek’s masterpiece, and to ENSURE that any potential proceeds benefit the cause in which this entire enterprise was intended.

___

“I am so incredibly overjoyed to hear that my fanboy dream is going to be available to a whole new generation of comic book fans who weren’t there when it was printed that many years ago. And it’s wonderful that it’s happening while I’m still alive to see it. 

Whatever it was that allowed this reprint to be released I am very grateful and on behalf of the fans all I can say is well done DC and Marvel!  

And of course, I am so elated that all profits from this re-print are going to one of my favorite personal charities!”

George Pérez
