What a year and what's next...

Hey Hero Within Fam! Tony B Kim here and I wanted to wish you a Happy New Year! Like a Thanos snap, 2018 is gone just like that. As we close 2018, I wanted to share a few reflections on this past amazing year. In March, with great excitement, we announced our new Marvel license! We were so grateful for all of your support and shared enthusiasm for this new partnership. We revealed our designs online and started preorders at San Diego Comic-Con. The response was tremendous. The collection arrived in November and we were able to fulfill in time for Christmas. Speaking of cons, on our second full year of operation, we exhibited at 14 shows spanning from New York to LA. To expand to new markets, we also exhibited at a couple of non-comic cons like DesignerCon and Big Adventure. Thanks to you, we were able to double our sales at all of our major shows from 2017! We were also so grateful for all the media sites that featured Hero Within in 2018 like Syfy, The Mary Sue, Geek & Sundry and more. To end the year, we opened our very first pop up shop during the holidays in Orange County. We loved meeting fans in person and learned a lot about the retail experience. Overall, we are so grateful for you. Your continual support of our company, sending us feedback and helping to get the word out has made 2018 a watermark year. We could not have gotten this far without you. You are our heroes. We face many more challenges ahead but together we will prevail!

We can’t wait for 2019 to unfold. It will be a year filled with many awesome adventures (and challenges) and inspirational stories. There is a new slate of Marvel and DC movies coming out and we have special items coming out for Captain Marvel, Avengers, Shazam, Wonder Woman and more! We are also preparing for a new set of cons and we will soon be announcing a couple of new major shows to add to our schedule. We also can’t wait to share with you some exciting new partnerships and events. The team and I have never been more committed to continuing our vision to bring sophisticated and empowering apparel to you. You won’t regret being a 2019 Newsletter Subscriber because for Hero Within, the best is yet to come!

Our first stop in 2019 is Ace Comic Con in Phoenix (Jan 11-13). Don't forget about our limited time site-wide New Year Sale!

Tony B Kim
Founder & CEO
