HELLBOY LOGO 2The discussion group will be focusing on the first three HELLBOY stories which have been recently collected into the “SEED OF DESTRUCTION” Omnibus from Dark Horse Comics.

Avoiding his supposed fate as the herald of the end of the world, Hellboy continues with the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, fighting alongside Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and drafting Roger Homunculus into his own ill-fated service with the B.P.R.D.
This 368-page volume covers Hellboy’s adventures published from 1994 to 1997, reprinting Seed of DestructionWake the Devil, and “Wolves of St August,” “The Chained Coffin,” and “Almost Colossus,” from The Chained Coffin and The Right Hand of Doom.

Heroes Head Honcho Shelton Drum on the creation of the Heroes Pop Swap from 2011:

Heroes Pop Swap is an idea that I had on the way back from a recent road trip. Before the Heroes Convention and the Charlotte Mini-Con and even the Heroes store, local comics fans would gather and trade comics and talk about our hobby. It was usually something like a sidewalk sale put together by a local bookstore and/or newsstand. I remember going to similar events in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Raleigh and the famous Murray Brothers’ backyard and basement gatherings in Durham during the latter half of the 70’s. None of us “old-timers” were official dealers yet. None of us had stores. We just shared a common interest in collecting as well as buying and selling comic books and related stuff.

Bridgit Heroes Heads - Shelton

 

We thought we’d try to bring back that feeling from those events with theHeroes Pop Swap: Charlotte’s Pop Culture Swap Meet. For a nominal fee anyone can reserve space and sell items from their personal collection to other fans who are sure to give that item a good home. We are also encouraging local artists and artisans to come and sell their art, pop-culture related crafts and comics.

There will be no professional dealers. Professional will be defined by me personally. If you buy and sell comics regularly either at conventions or online you will be excluded from setting up, but I encourage you to come shop! I anticipate a lot cool items being offered.

We want to limit this event to local creators and comics and pop culture enthusiasts who have interesting items from their personal collections that they are willing to sell and self-produced comics and related products. People who are purchasing space are encouraged not only to bring comics but any items falling under the pop culture umbrella. That could be toys, games, music, movies and more.

Since this event is so close to Halloween don’t be afraid to come in costume. Trick or treating will be part of our advertising for this event, please consider bringing a treat of some sort for the kids (candy, button, stickers, comics etc..).

We think this will be a fun event for everyone involved and if it is successful we’d like to make it something we do few times a year.

Thanks! I look forward to bringing back some of the “old school!”

THERE’S A STORM ON THE WAY, BUT WE’VE GOT OUR BEST *HEROES* ON THE JOB!

September 14, 2018 By: Karla Southern Category: Uncategorized

Storm vs Florence

If you are in or around the Charlotte area this weekend you will know that, thanks to HURRICANE FLORENCE, we are expecting wind and a tremendous amount of rain to fall over the next few days.
With that being said, we would like our customers to know that HEROES will remain open as long as we have power and no forced curfew. We will have our best available HEROES working to keep things up and running, so if you need to stock up on comics and/or trades for the long, wet weekend…we are HERE for you.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: We want EVERYONE TO STAY SAFE. If conditions are questionable or hazardous, please do not risk harm to yourself or others by trying to travel. We want to see you all SAFE AND SOUND next week after the storm has passed!
