CAROLINA CAMERA with WBTV’s John Carter – Exploring Shelton’s Comic Book Collection

November 08, 2023 By: Karla Southern Category: DISCUSS, Exclusives, Feast Your Eyes, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, Interviews, NEWS, Now Read This!, Vintage Comics

WBTV’s Carolina Camera gets behind the scenes with Shelton Drum and his comic collection

WBTV’s John Carter brought his Carolina Camera behind the scenes with Heroes own Shelton Drum to take a peek into Shelton’s vast collection of comic books that spans all generations. Shelton has been collecting comic books since he was 10 years old, and he has no intentions of stopping!

If you are looking for a specific comic, there’s a good chance Shelton might have it, and if you’re looking to SELL a collection of comics (especially from the 1970’s and earlier) there’s a good chance Shelton is looking to BUY them too!

You can stop by our store, Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find located at 417 Pecan Avenue, Charlotte, NC 28204 any day of the week (except Thanksgiving and Christmas…we close TWICE a year!), or you can send an email to HeroesArentHardToFind@gmail.com or Shelton@heroesonline.com if you have comic collecting questions!

Our MANY THANKS to John Carter and his Carolina Camera for shining a light down the halls of comic-collecting!
