Grab a Graphic Novel at Heroes
Today, 10:00a - 9:00p
Heroes is the go-to spot for all things graphic novels. Whether you're looking for an oldie or a newbie, a hard-to-find or a new release, you can satisfy your comic needs here.
Heroes is celebrated as one of the best comic shops in the country, and it's located right in Charlotte. The store opened its doors in 1980, so they've been around the block a time or two. The store has made waves in the comic community for defying the typical comic book shop motif and being one of the most attractive in the country. There's plenty of light and space in the shop and little grunge, displacing the notion that all comic shops are small, dark and dirty. If you're looking for something specific, or you just wanna talk shop, the owner and staff are extremely knowledgable.
When you walk in, look up! A pair of larger-than-life statues of Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus fighting over the front of the store, especially Doc Ock, whose arms double as electrical conduits, bringing power to the register, computers, and sound system.
