Heroes & Dragons has the largest and most diverse
selection of comic books in South Carolina.
New Releases are on sale every Wednesday by 3:00
You can find them in our "New Comic Alley" near the back of the store.
For books that have already been on sale one week or
more, genre sections such as Marvel, DC, Independent Publisher, Star Wars, Japanese
Vertigo, X-Men, Spider-Man, and Popular Creators make it easy to find the issues you want.
As a response to Warren Ellis's
suggestion at www.warrenellis.com,
we've created a special "Pop
Comics" section stocked with comics by your favorite creators --
names like Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Kevin Smith, and even ol'
Warren Ellis himself.
Also, we have lots of currently-in-print graphic
novels in each genre section. We keep most titles in stock and on the shelf for
about three months, so if you haven't been in recently you still have a shot at getting
what you want to read. Many small press books are kept in stock indefinitely.
We carry most of the graphic novels and trade
paperbacks currently available from Diamond's Star System and other distributors. You'll
find these on our "Wall of Graphic Novels," and rest assured -- if it's
not there, we probably *can* get it for you.
Back issues are our specialty, and Heroes &
Dragons has over half a million of them. We have comics ranging from 4 for $1.00 to rare
collector's items. Our distinctive and unique approach to offering back issues for every
type of customer -- from the casual reader to the high-dollar investor -- has caused us to
offer several different inventories. We've got complete stocks of Silver Age
comics, hot comics, and pre-assembled sets -- plus the aforementioned Pop Comics
Rare comics are partially
located on the store floor. This inventory is rotated between the store, conventions, and
mail-order, so not all inventory is available at all times.
If you are interested in rare collector's items, please call us at (803)
731-4376 to make an appointment with Chris, who is usually in the office Monday
in our blood. We sell games, we play games, and we hold gaming
tournaments in our store.

Magic cards, new and old, in South Carolina. We also carry all other popular collectible

In support of gaming, Heroes & Dragons
maintains a 2,000-square-foot
Game Room open to gamers during all store hours.
Theres no fee to use it, and we only require that you be courteous to other
customers and gamers. So if youre looking for a place to play, look no further!
Youll find tables, chairs, and trash cans set up in the Game Room for your
convenience. Coming soon, we'll have storage lockers for you to keep your
game gear instead of carrying it home every night!
For you miniature game
enthusiasts, we have
several waist-high 4-by-9 tables
with terrain already set up. All you need to bring is an army!
With the extra space provided by our Game Room,
were able to hold weekly Magic tournaments and Warhammer
games. At any given time, we may also have a planned tourney for Star Wars,
Pokemon, Legend of the Five Rings, Vampire, or any
of the other games our customers like to play.
We carry most new
cards related to comic characters,
fantasy artists, and science-fiction
TV shows and movies. We also discount unopened boxes to make it easier for you to complete
a set of cards.
Sets and special cards are often available, especially for more popular card series. Check with a staff member for items that may not be on
display in the store.
We buy complete sets.
Collectible toys are right at home at Heroes &
Dragons. Being the first store in South Carolina to offer original
STAR WARS items and
other action figures has given us an edge today. We now have over
50,000 toys in stock--with about 5,000 pieces on display.
Star Wars, Star Trek, G.I. Joe, Transformers,
and Super Powers are all well-represented. Toys from most science-fiction TV shows,
movies, comics, and cartoons from the last 30 years are available.
Star Wars is our main specialty, and we usually
have most Star Wars-related items in stock, although really rare items sell almost
as fast as we acquire them. We love all kinds of toys, however, and will
be happy to try to get anything for you.

rare collectible gems, contact our toy man Tracy at (803) 731-4376.
