Heroes Aren't Hard to Find, Charlotte, NC

5 of 15

HeroesCon founder Shelton Drum may not be a household name, but among comics cognoscenti his north Charlotte shop is rightly beloved by cult collectors and newbies alike (the name is a riff on a Fleetwood Mac song). Open since 1980 and moved to slick digs in the Elizabeth neighborhood in 2002, the store is one of the oldest, largest retailers in the U.S. Drum stocks everything from Silver and Golden Age rarities to a complete line of new comics, manga, graphic novels, and memorabilia—all in a highly browsable, well-lit, and inclusive atmosphere. Larger-than-life suspended Doctor Octopus and Spidey figures battle it out over the registers. heroesonline.com
