DC FUTURE STATE

DC COMICS: Spinning out of the finale of Dark Nights: Death Metal, DC Future State will take you on a journey from the near future to the end of time to witness the destinies of heroes like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Justice League, the Teen Titans, and so many more. What will change? For starters, our big three—Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman—will tackle unexpected new roles even as younger heroes take their places. Some will find themselves in new, hostile territory; others will see their heroic missions turned upside down.

The Heroes Family Remembers One Of Our Own

December 14, 2020 By: Karla Southern Category: Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, HeroesCon, NEWS, Uncategorized

Charles Kibby = Hero Extraordinaire

Kibby with Seth and Sergio 2019-crop

Charles Kibby with Heroes’ Seth Peagler and Sergio Aragonés at the 2019 Heroes Convention.

What can’t we say about this treasure of a human being?

Charles Kibby was a Gentle-Giant, a big lovable Ginger Teddy-Bear, and a BELOVED member of the Heroes Family.

With his intimidating stature, he could have easily have been a holy-terror…and yet, he was the sweetest, kindest, most generous soul.

It was an HONOR to have him serve as a volunteer during the Heroes Convention each year, as well as at most all of our other Heroes events.
He was a regular presence at the Charlotte Mini-Con, Free Comic Book Day, and at nearly ALL of our In-Store Signings.
He could handle ANY situation thrown at him with a calming charm.

Kibby’s was the kind of presence that automatically made everyone feel at ease.
During stressful events he would kindly remind members of the Heroes Staff to take a break, and if he received protest, would occasionally throw them over his shoulder to MAKE them eat lunch.
He was a friend to almost EVERY ARTIST and VENDOR on our show floor, as well as at other shows across the country, constantly checking in on them during shows. Kibby would happily go well out of his way to help ANYONE, and you always knew you could count of him. 

He was ALWAYS looking out FOR OTHERS. 
To know him, was to LOVE him. And, like many others have stated, once he knew you he immediately made you feel like family.

The Heroes Family, and the Comics Community at large, are devastated today by the news that he lost his battle with COVID-19.

We know that everyone is tired of hearing this, but PLEASE WEAR A MASK.
Kibby wore his. He was careful. Our friend got sick because of someone else’s negligence.
If you won’t wear a mask for your own health, please wear one for the sake of someone you love.

We LOVE YOU CHARLES KIBBY.
You are, and ALWAYS WILL BE, Heroes Family.

BookAdventure

NEW COMICS WILL ARRIVE

LATER IN THE DAY

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2020

It is STILL 2020 after all…

Due to a shipping mishap, Heroes will be receiving our books for Wednesday, November 11 later than usual.
Accidents will happen, what can we say?

New books will be arriving sometime during the day on Wednesday, but we will still need to COUNT them, check for damages, and complete pull lists for our Reserve Customers before they can go out on the racks.

We ask you to give us a few extra hours tomorrow to get our shipment sorted.

New books are ON THEIR WAY, but we suggest that you consider stopping by tomorrow evening instead of at 10am hoping to get first dibs.

We will update this post (and our Social Media) tomorrow as soon as New Books are on the shelves for everyone!

We appreciate your understanding and patience!!

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!!

WE ARE LISTENING

June 26, 2020 By: Karla Southern Category: Uncategorized

To the comics community:

We ARE listening.

We have been gutted by the instances that have come to light over this past week, and we are devastated to learn that any of these instances occurred during our show or at any of our satellite events.

There are multiple changes that need to occur on an industry-wide scale, but the Heroes Convention and Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find will be taking significant steps to be part of the solution & not part of the problem.

We support and acknowledge the need for change.
 
To say that we were not made aware of these instances until this week is a moot point.
 
We will take measures to prevent situations like these, or anything even remotely similar, from happening at ANY of our future events.
 
This commitment extends to the ENTIRE comics community, not just to female creators, but to our LQBTQ+ & BIPOC community as well.
 
We will BE BETTER. We must insist that everyone BE BETTER.
While our next show isn’t for another year, we have an entire year to listen to the community, to learn from these experiences, and to put in the effort to BE THE CHANGE.

The Heroes Convention has had a CODE OF CONDUCT policy in place for years. It is posted in multiple locations all over the convention floor and is the second page in our program book:

#BLACKLIVESMATTER

June 09, 2020 By: Karla Southern Category: Uncategorized

BLM

Heroes stand for Justice, and Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find stands with the BIPOC Community and the #BlackLiveMatter movement.

We must live by the code of the heroes whose stories we carry in our store, and stand for what is RIGHT.

Captain America fought the Nazis. The X-Men, Black Panther, and countless other titles throughout the years, have represented the fight for civil rights. 

In December of 1968, Stan Lee, the father of Marvel Comics, used his Soapbox to declare, “Racism and bigotry are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today.”

Stan Lee Racism Soapbox

A few months earlier, in October 1968 his Soapbox stated, “We believe that Man has a divine destiny, and an awesome responsibility – the responsibility of treating all who share this wondrous world of ours with tolerance and respect – judging each fellow human on his own merit, regardless of race, creed, or color.”

 

We look forward to a new chapter written by a new world where diversity and inclusivity are not just fictional characters on a page, but a reality for all who live it.

We stand with you.
#BLACKLIVESMATTER
