Wolverhampton welcomes new comic book store

Wolverhampton | Entertainment | Published:

A new comic book and gadget shop has opened in Wolverhampton, and its bosses hope it will be a heroic new venture.

Luke Leslie, aged 25, and his former McDonalds colleague and close pal Elias McCarthy, 20, have opened Heroicos on St Johns Street in the city centre.

The pair, who opened up on December 14, hope their venture appeals to the masses.

Mr Leslie said: "Heroicos means a group of heroes or epic. We felt that it represents what we're about.

"We sell lots of different things, we've tried not to brand ourselves as a comic book store because people imagine that only geeky people go there, we want to be open to everyone. We know lots of people are into Netflix and TV series' like Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, so sell things related to shows like that."

Mr Leslie, of Penn, said other items on sale includes T-shirts and merchandise from TV shows. He added:

"We would best describe Heroicos as a young persons paradise. It has a gaming section for customers where they can sit and enjoy some refreshments whilst playing."
