Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) is excited to announce on-site comic book grading at Heroes Convention Charlotte, in Charlotte, North Carolina, on June 14-16, 2024. That’s right, get your books back by the end of the show!

Regular submissions of comics, cards, video games and home video collectibles will also be accepted, and collectors can look forward to giveaways, swag and signings — all at booth #101!

About HeroesCon

The Heroes Convention (“HeroesCon”) has gained renown for its emphasis on comics and its welcoming environment for all ages. It offers a unique opportunity for fans to engage directly with industry professionals and exhibitors, with a stellar lineup of guests like John Beatty, Mark Buckingham, Amy Chu and Skottie Young and MANY MORE!

Submit comics for on-site grading

CGC is offering on-site grading at this year’s HeroesCon for all Universal and Signature Series comic book submissions. On-site grading, including ReHolder submissions, will be available Friday, June 14, through Saturday, June 15. A very limited quantity of WalkThrough submissions will still be accepted on Sunday, June 16, until 12:00 p.m. All you need is a free CGC account to submit for on-site grading, but paid members receive discounts (and other benefits).

HEROES HELPING A FRIEND IN NEED

March 21, 2024 By: Karla Southern Category: DISCUSS, NEWS, Now Read This!, Other Events

House Fire Leaves Heroes’ Friend, and Beloved Member of the Comics Community, Hospitalized

David Gomien

David Gomien originally came to Charlotte in the early 1980’s, at Shelton’s request, to work part-time and help out at shows with Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find.

During that time Diamond Distributors opened a warehouse in Charlotte, and David ended up working there part-time as well. He quickly became the manager of their Charlotte office, and would spend the next decade plus building relationships with comic stores and comic retailers all throughout the Southeast.

Last Saturday, March 16, David was severely injured in a house fire that destroyed his family’s home of 28 years. He sustained 3rd degree burns covering 60% of his body, and was airlifted to the Burn Center in Augusta, GA.

Currently, David is under full-time sedation due to the severity of his injuries and will not be awake for the next several weeks. He will be recovering in the Burn Center ICU over the next several months, and his road to recovery will not be an easy one. There will be several surgeries and months of rehabilitation over the days to come.

David’s pups

David’s wife, son, and two dogs are currently staying in a pet-friendly hotel, but they will need to relocate to a more permanent solution while David recovers and they try rebuild what they have lost.

At 64, David was still working a full-time job with no plans to retire.

As Shelton has stated many times this week, “David is one of us”.

He’s a hard worker. He loves comic books, music, dogs, and his family. He also has a grandson who desperately needs him to get better soon, so that they can get back to reading comics and eating cookies.

But in the meantime, the bills will keep coming.

David’s daughter, Maria Gomien, has started a Go Fund Me for David that you can access here.

David Gomien

Heroes will be accepting donations on behalf of the Gomien family, in-person, this Sunday, March 24 at the Charlotte Comicon if you would like to make any donation to help the Gomien family through this difficult time. All donations collected will be given directly to the family after the show.

If you would like to send anything – cards, money, checks, gift cards, etc – directly to the family, but you will not be at the Charlotte Comicon this Sunday, you can drop off or mail donations to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find and we will send them directly to David’s daughter Maria.

You may send items to our PO Box:
Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find
PO Box 9181
Charlotte, NC 28299
You may also email us at [email protected] to request Maria Gomien’s mailing address, but we would prefer not to post her address online.

We know that times are tough for everyone, and anything you can spare, no matter how small, would mean so much to his family and ours.

We appreciate you all, and send all our love to the Gomien Family!

Get better David!! Shelton has a Sub-Mariner comic with your name on it!
