Heroes is proud to welcome Justin Crouse to the position of Store Manager!  Justin has been a valuable staff member for the past three years.  Like many employees over the years, Justin was a customer for some fifteen years before he worked his way up from HeroesCon volunteer to full fledged staff member.  In addition to being an endless source of humor for staff and customers alike, Justin has a wide range of comic tastes – his favorites include  Howard the Duck, Savage Dragon, Bulletproof Coffin, Captain America, Asterios Polyp and Black Hole.  Justin’s also a talented artist, with his work appearing in several anthologies and self-published comics in recent years.  He values the aesthetics of the form, and, like the rest of us, unabashedly loves comics.

As store manager, Justin will handle all comic ordering, which means if you have any requests for specific items or variants, or would like to change your Previews orders, you’ll need to contact him at [email protected].  He will also be helping to coordinate volunteers for HeroesCon 2014.

We are very excited to have Justin as our new store manager, and hope you’ll also welcome him.  After the success of this year’s HeroesCon, we’re all reinvigorated and ready to bring you an even better comic shop and convention in the coming year.  Great things are happening at Heroes, and we hope you’ll continue to join us along the way.

STAFF PICKS :: BATMAN LI’L GOTHAM #1 :: APRIL 10, 2013

April 08, 2013 By: Seth Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

SETH’S PICK :: BATMAN LI’L GOTHAM #1 ::  On paper, it looks like a standout week for new books.  There are sure things like Hawkeye #9, Saga #12, a new Marvel Oz hardcover, and books you should be reading if you aren’t already, like Sledgehammer 44 #2 and Rocketeer: Hollywood Horror #3.  I’ll pick all of these up, but have chosen as my official staff pick, this delightful new series from Dustin Nguyen.  At first glance it might look like DC is trying to jump on the ‘baby variant’ bandwagon, but for those who don’t know, Nguyen started producing these stories as digital only releases last year.  Having read many of the stories online, I’m excited to see them enter our glorious realm of print.  These are fun all ages comics that feature diminutive versions of Batman and his extended family of heroes and foes on holiday themed adventures.  They’re perfect for young readers or any adult fans who appreciate lighthearted palate cleansers. Bonus Pick of the Week:  Most of you know that the majority of the Heroes staff is comprised of creative people.  Several of us are in various stages of developing our comic work.  Rico, of course, colors world class comics all the time, and others like Bridgit are quickly developing into creators on the rise.  Add to that list our own Justin Crouse, who contributed art to three stories in a new book on the shelves this week.  Pick up Center of Gravity from Low Key Comics and see what Justin works on outside of Heroes.  I’m particularly fond of the first story “Monkey Bars.”  There are some nice, quiet moments in it that remind you of  Justin’s skill as a visual storyteller.
