June 2022 will mark the 40th Anniversary of the Heroes Convention!

You know that after TWO YEARS of pandemic handcuffs, we will pull out ALL THE STOPS and make HeroesCon 2022 one FOR THE AGES!

“A June bug flew from the warmth he once knew,
And I wished for once I weren’t right,
Why we used to laugh together,
And we’d dance to any old song,”
From “Far From Me” by John Prine

The past several months have seen us all stuck in LIMBO, quietly watching COVID-19 numbers rise and fall as restrictions fluctuate across the country, never knowing what the next month might hold.

It is after careful consideration for the HEALTH and SAFETY of EVERYONE, we have made the decision to FAST FORWARD directly to HeroesCon 2022.

ALL 2020/2021 HeroesCon Tickets, Artist Alley Tables and Exhibitor Booth Reservations will automatically transfer to the 2022 Heroes Convention at this time.
We hope that you will continue to support us as we begin planning our 40th Anniversary show.

HeroesCon 2022 Hotel Rates will be made available as soon as 2022 show dates have been finalized.

We are currently looking at the possibility of holding a much smaller convention in the fall, but we know that a smaller show is no substitute for the Heroes Convention.
Details of this show are tentative at this time, with announcements to follow as soon as possible. HOWEVER, if you have purchased a 2020 or 2021 3-Day Pass for the Heroes Convention, your ticket will get you into this smaller show, as well as the 2022 Heroes Convention.


Please know that we have not made this decision lightly.

After what has felt like an eternity of uncertainty, we are hopeful that there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines are being distributed on a wide spectrum and we are slowly starting to see the promise of a return to “normal” in the months ahead.

However, even with the increased numbers of vaccinations, we understand that it may not be safe to hold an indoor gathering of thousands of people, even three months from now; especially when you consider that the vast majority of our guests travel from across the country, or even from across the globe.

We PRIDE ourselves on the wealth of talent that fills our Artist Alley each year.

At the beginning of March we sent out a poll to over 300 Featured Guests from recent and past Heroes Conventions. Of the 200+ responses we have received, 95% of those have stated that they would not feel comfortable attending a show in June of 2021, with most adding that they would prefer to wait until 2022 to attend a convention.

This, coupled with feedback from customers and exhibitors, has informed us that June 2021 is still too soon for most to feel safe attending a convention on the scale of the HeroesCon. We have taken all of these concerns very seriously, and agree that the health of EVERYONE is the MOST IMPORTANT factor going forward.

Other extenuating circumstances that have influenced our decision at this time: the Charlotte Convention Center will be undergoing construction that could impact our floor plan as well as the use of escalators. As of today, enforced capacity restrictions will remain in effect until fall of 2021, with limited on-site concessions, and sustained social distancing requirements between individuals as well as between tables and booths.

Under these circumstances it just wouldn’t be a HeroesCon.


“Ain’t it funny how an old broken bottle,
Looks just like a diamond ring,
But it’s far, far from me.”
From “Far From Me” by John Prine 1971


We appreciate you and your continued support,
and we THANK YOU for being a part of the

Be well, stay safe, and look out for one another. -Heroes

Seven Incredibly-Rare Pokémon Card, Sealed Booster Boxes, Come up for Auction

Seven Incredibly-Rare Pokémon Card, Sealed Booster Boxes, Come up for Auction

pokemon-collectionAs Pokémon Cards Skyrocket in Value Wise Comic Book Store Owner Kept Some for Himself

If you’re trying to catch all the Pokémon Cards this auction might be for you!

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 8, 2020 / — Back in 1999, Charlotte, North Carolina comic book store owner Shelton Drum not only sold Pokémon trading cards but hosted games for the neighborhood kids, including his own. Looking ahead, he wisely tucked a few sealed boxes of cards away for them. Today, as Pokémon cards soar in value, he and his kids—now 30 and 32 years old—are poised to reap the benefits of his foresight.

While the Pokémon franchise has long enjoyed steady growth, since the pandemic, card values are reaching new heights. Recently, a 1st Edition Booster Box—which cost about $100 in 1999—sold for a record $360,000. As a result, Shelton has partnered with, the world’s premier online comic marketplace and auctioneer, to auction his six sealed booster boxes.

See the Comic Connect Auction here: Comic Connect: Seven Incredibly-Rare, Sealed Booster Boxes Come up for Auction

“2020 has been an incredible year for Pokémon investment collectors,” notes Vincent Zurzolo, co-owner of ComicConnect. “The early sets are constantly hitting new records, and we’re thrilled to be offering these as the cornerstone of our Pokémon TCG auction.”

The booming market comes as no shock to Drum, who has owned Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find since 1980. (He also hosts Charlotte’s popular Heroes Convention, which attracts 40,000 attendees annually.) Twenty years ago, he saw firsthand how the Pokémon “pocket monsters”—launched in Japan in 1995—obsessed American kids.

Little kids liked the bright graphics and intriguing characters, like Pikachu and Charizard. Big kids liked battling one another via the elaborate trading card game, their enthusiasm fed by a constant stream of cards, video games, and movies. Now, those kids of the 1990s are in their 30s—and many are eager to collect the beloved relics of childhood.

Why now? Interest has been fueled both by the pandemic—as locked-down collectors devote more time to their hobby—and by actor/boxer/internet personality Logan Paul, a Pokémon investor who showcases his purchases on his popular YouTube channel.

Like most trading cards, Pokémon cards are released in sets and sold in booster packs, which are packaged in booster boxes. Pokémon booster boxes contain 36 packs, each featuring around 11 randomly-selected cards. Each Pokémon set includes about 200 rare, uncommon and common cards.

Courtesy of Shelton Drum, ComicConnect’s event auction features the following sealed English booster boxes: Fossil Set (1999), Gym Challenge (2000), Gym Heroes (2000), Neo Genesis (2000), Team Rocket (2000), and Unlimited Base (1999).

Each box holds 36 unopened packs, or a total of 396 cards. Sealed boxes generally yield gem-mint condition cards, which command the highest prices. (Trading cards are rated on a scale of 1-10, with 10—gem mint—the highest rating.)

In addition, the auction includes items from other consignors, including an opened box of Jungle (1999), which holds 36 unopened card packs, and an incredibly-rare unopened box of the earliest Japanese booster box. Zurzolo has also acquired a sealed, 1999 First Edition Limited Printing box that is available for private sale.

ComicConnect has already received multiple bids on each of the booster boxes, and there’s no predicting what final sale pricing will be when the auction ends on December 14th.

What will the buyers do with their prizes? Says Zurzolo, “It depends. Some will ‘break the box’ and open the packs in search of the rare cards. Others will break the box, but then sell the sealed packs individually.”

“But some will undoubtedly do what Shelton did 20 years ago: hold onto the sealed box as an investment, knowing it will continue to appreciate over time.”

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we do our best to make sure that everyone stays safe and healthy!



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!!
