Featured LCS: Lone Star Heroes: Comics & Toys


Lone Star Heroes: Comics & Toys has the largest selection of pop culture merchandise in the greater Houston area. With over a million comic books, toys, games, horror and science fiction memorabilia, and pop culture collectibles, they have something for everyone. They have three convenient locations in Harris, Galveston, and Brazoria counties, with over 8,000 square feet of merchandise. They are always buying comic and toy collections and offer some of the best prices in the business.

Lone Star Heroes is a family-owned and operated retail chain, and it’s the only store of its kind run by three generations of women. Sarah Wood, Jody Wood, and Lois King are the daughter-mother-grandmother team that operates Lone Star Heroes in an overwhelmingly male-dominated industry. Sarah and Jody are Registered Nurses, and Lois is a retired public school secretary. Lois’ husband, Jim, a retired electrical engineer, and Jody’s husband, Paul, a retired electrical lineman, help manage the business. Sarah’s brother, Tad, is the buyer and general manager of Lone Star Heroes, responsible for purchases, processing of products, social media, shows and celebrity guests, and public relations.
