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!!

In addition to all the Free Comics and great artists, we’ll also be debuting a brand new, never before touched sale stock on Saturday! More specifically, this is a 27 box dollar stock that happens to be in alpha-numeric order. That’s right, it’s all in alpha-numeric order! Buy single books for $1 or fill a long box for $250. We haven’t debuted anything like this in quite some time, so bring your back issue want lists and enjoy the ease of shopping through an organized stock.

PARKING: This is always a big question for FCBD attendees. We want you to know there are plenty of parking options for Saturday. You can park anywhere in the lots directly beside or behind Heroes without the threat of being towed. This includes in front of any of the businesses from Dollar General down to the former Florist, including the small lot on the other side of the Florist. Our neighbors are kind to let us use their spaces for their event, so please patronize them on Saturday. We would love for them to see a little extra business from our FCBD crowd. This is our largest store event of the year, and these lots may fill quickly. The good news is that Saturday’s weather is supposed to be perfect for the event. If and when these lots fill up, remember that you can park on any of the surrounding streets behind Heroes. 8th Street and beyond has plenty of on-street parking, and it’ll be a beautiful day to walk a block or two to Heroes.

There are a few places you cannot park. Those are the four spaces directly in front of the Laundry in the lot next to Heroes, and in any of the spaces across Pecan at Pecan Point. This includes all of the parking spaces in the shopping center including businesses like Anntony’s Caribbean, Bang Bang Burgers, and around to Sunflour Bakery. You will be towed at your own expense if you park in any of those spaces, so heed that warning now, and remember it on Saturday.

We expect hundreds of people to pass through Heroes on Saturday, but there are many more parking options for you this year. As with your actions in the store, we would appreciate you being respectful of our neighbors, parking lot, and neighborhood. This is a large and busy event, but it’s one designed to be enjoyed, and we can all work together to make sure that happens for everyone.

STAFF PICKS :: MISTER X: EVICTION #1 :: MAY 1, 2013

April 30, 2013 By: Seth Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

SETH’S PICK :: MISTER X: EVICTION #1: It’s true that this Saturday is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, and while you know we’ll have plenty of quality free comics to give you, I’d encourage you to ease through the crowds and find this book on the genre side of the store.  If you don’t know about the character or any of Motter’s work, I’d encourage you to give it a look.  When Mister X appeared in the early eighties, it brought several novel elements into American comics, like art deco design, stylish noir, and even German Expressionism.  Beyond the book’s intelligence, just look at a list of its contributers (Jaime Hernandez, Seth, Dave McKean and more) to find reasons to read this title.  It’s a beautiful book that continues to deliver strong stories and design.  This first issue of a new miniseries is a great place to learn about the character, as is the recent Mister X: Hard Candy one shot that collected new Motter material from Dark Horse Presents.  And if scholarly comics don’t do it for you, there’s always Hawkeye #10 out this week.  It just so happens that this issue is the first of the series to feature art from Francesco Francavilla, who will be among the guests at Heroes for the FCBD excitement this Saturday.  Get him to sign a copy and a few of his excellent Black Beetle issues while you’re at it.
