Ho, Ho, Ho Santa Delivers New Comics on Christmas Eve!

That's right!  New comics will arrive with no delay this Wednesday, December 24 on Christmas Eve!

New comics will be out on the wall by 3:00pm, as usual.

However, we will be closing early at 6:00pm.  Hey, we want to spend some quality time with our families, too!

H&D Holiday Hours

As mentioned above, we'll be closing early on Wednesday, December 24 for Christmas Eve.

Heroes and Dragons will be closed on Christmas Day, December 25.

We will re-open for our normal hours at 11:00am on December 26.

Next week, we will close early (at 6:00pm again) on New Year's Eve, but we'll re-open for regular store hours on January 1, 2004.

No Post-Christmas Delay

More good news:  There will be no delay on new comics next week, either!  This means you'll get new comics without interruption both Wednesdays first on Christmas Eve, then a week later on New Year's Eve.

However, as mentioned above, we will close early (at 6:00pm) on both days.  If you're part of our large "after 6" crowd get here early!
