WBTV’s Carolina Camera gets behind the scenes with Shelton Drum and his comic collection

WBTV’s John Carter brought his Carolina Camera behind the scenes with Heroes own Shelton Drum to take a peek into Shelton’s vast collection of comic books that spans all generations. Shelton has been collecting comic books since he was 10 years old, and he has no intentions of stopping!

If you are looking for a specific comic, there’s a good chance Shelton might have it, and if you’re looking to SELL a collection of comics (especially from the 1970’s and earlier) there’s a good chance Shelton is looking to BUY them too!

You can stop by our store, Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find located at 417 Pecan Avenue, Charlotte, NC 28204 any day of the week (except Thanksgiving and Christmas…we close TWICE a year!), or you can send an email to [email protected] or [email protected] if you have comic collecting questions!

Our MANY THANKS to John Carter and his Carolina Camera for shining a light down the halls of comic-collecting!



TASCHEN and Marvel Entertainment Announce
‘The Marvel Comics Library’

Famous First Edition:
First printings of 5,000 numbered copies

ABOUT THE SERIES:

TASCHEN’s extra-large format, close in size to the original artworks, reveal startling new details in the work of Marvel’s most acclaimed artists. For each title in the series, the most pristine pedigreed comics (from the collection of our own SHELTON DRUM!) have been cracked open for reproduction in close collaboration with Marvel and the Certified Guaranty Company. Rather than recolor the original production artwork (as has been done in previous decades’ reprints of classic comics), TASCHEN has attempted to create an ideal representation of these books as they were produced at the time of publication. Beginning with high grade, top-quality comics sourced with the assistance of the CGC, super-high-resolution photographs of each page were made as printed more than half a century ago, using modern retouching techniques to correct problems with the era’s inexpensive, imperfect printing. This included improved and balanced ink densities and color matching, proper registration of the four-color printing and correction of thick/thin lines resulting from the flexible plates “smudging.” The end result is a finished product — as if hot off a world-class printing press produced without economic or time-pressure constraints – tailored for readers, fans, artists and collectors alike.

Each volume features an essay by a comic book historian alongside hundreds of photos and artifacts. The books use three different paper stocks, including an uncoated and wood-free paper exclusively developed for this series that simulates the feel of the original comics.

The first 5,000 copies of each volume will be numbered and released as a ‘Famous First Edition’. These books are also available as a Collector’s Edition, limited to 1,000 copies featuring an aluminum print cover tipped into a leatherette-bound spine, foil embossing, and housed in a slipcase. Each book is individually numbered. The inaugural purchase of the Collector’s Edition entitles the collector to the selection of a personal favorite number between 1 and 1,000 on a first-come-first-serve basis. This will also secure a preemptive right to reserve a copy with the identical edition number for all forthcoming Collector’s Edition titles in ‘The Marvel Comic Library’.

Shelton granted exclusive and unprecedented access to some of his most prized and beloved comics, and art, to assist in the creation of these comic tomes.

“Working with TASCHEN and the CGC on these books has been an honor. The finished product FAR EXCEEDS any pre-conceived expectations I may have held! I just opened the box with the book, and I know the word might be overused, but it is FANTASTIC! The production quality is awesome. I love it!”
