Unfortunately, there will not be a HurleyCon in 2012

Hi folks,

Yes, you read that correctly. We’re very sorry to have to make this announcement, but there will not be a HurleyCon this year. Due to the immense number of comic book and gaming conventions all around the country in the early spring, we were simply not able to find a date that would work.

Rather than run a sub-par show that didn’t include the wide variety of industry guests and independent dealers that you’ve come to expect from HurleyCon, we’ve decided to rally our forces for a bigger, better show in the future.

If you’re still on the hunt for a great comic book show in the area, we highly recommend Planet Comicon in Overland Park, KS (Kansas City Area). It’s easily the area’s biggest con, and always has a great guest list.

Thank you all for your continued support.

Major Announcement As We Restructure And Relocate

Over the next few months, Hurley’s Heroes will be undergoing quite a few changes. We will be streamlining our current business in a number of ways. In addition to changes such as reducing our shelf stock of graphic novels, shrinking our Magic: the Gathering singles collection, and eliminating shelf copies of new comics, by far our most significant change will be to move the store operations to a new location in September.

We realize that this news is shocking and that you may have a few questions. The question that we expect to hear the most is “Why?”. The simple answer is the tornado on May 22nd. We sell non-essential goods, and the city of Joplin as a whole is more concerned with the essentials. We hope that in time the city will regrow, and we will be working tirelessly to regrow with it.

We will be refocusing all of our new comic sales to a special order only system. If you’re already part of our subscription system, great! You’re covered. If you’re not a subscriber, well, you totally should be. It’s fast, easy, and FREE.

Our Magic: The Gathering customers should be aware that we will not be carrying any product for the 2012 core set. Because of the window we are required to order within, this means we will also be canceling our Pre-Release and Launch Party events. However, we will still have gaming space available, and all other scheduled events will be held as normal. In addition, all of our packs, boxes, and single cards will be available.

Warhammer 40,000 customers will be happy to know that we are keeping our retailer account and will remain the fastest and most reliable place to order miniatures. The league will be ending as of the 15th of this month per normal, and we will be scheduling a 1,000 point tournament in August.

We can’t begin to express how grateful we are for your support. We will continue to serve all of our customers as best we can in the future. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Tornado Relief Comics Giveaway! This Saturday, July 2

As was revealed last night in Brad’s Beat on the KSN evening news, we will be giving away comics this weekend to anyone in the Joplin area that wants to come by. We especially want to reach out to all of those affected by the tornado.

The comics being given away are those that were donated by hundreds of generous people from around the nation, and in fact, the entire globe. If you’re collection was destroyed in the storm, or you just need a little extra entertainment in your life, please come by this Saturday, from noon-8pm, and get yourself some free books!
