My time at Hall Heroes doubled as both a first-time comic book retailer and an active website developer. Here is the concept pitch I submitted to then-owner Sal Fichera and his wife Marie and got the approval to move forward with the look and feel while figuring out the retail aspect. Two major notes at the time.
If you take a look at the “HALL” depiction of Cable is an artwork OF Ken Haeser Pete’s future collaborator for The Eyes of Asia.
Another note is the website was pitched to be HALLOFHEROES.BIZ the reason for this is a philosophy that rings true for Peter even today. It doesn’t matter what your logo is, colors, or even name, what matters as a business is how well it’s designed and performed, this is what separates everything. Sure a .com would have been great and typical but it would have never made the site something great and that’s what it needed to be.
