Charlotte Minicon

By Shawn Scott Smith| January 22, 2011 | 1 Comment

Went to the Charlotte Minicon today hosted at the awesome Palmer building. Its a pretty cool place for a convention but super small. This convention has really big name comic book guests, the only problem is they are crammed into a small area. There was probably about 20 dealers total so this con is great if your in Charlotte or have other things on the agenda for the day, but for me, Id see it as hard to justify the two hour one way trip again. Still if your in Charlotte I reccomend the show for the chance to meet some great artists.

Just blocks away is the Heroes Arent Hard to Find comic book store (one of the longest and best in the southeast and also showrunners of the convention) and I spent a while there before heading home adding some comic goodness to my trip.

    Sounds like we had much the same plan yesterday. A friend and I drove up from Atlanta to the show, then visited Heroes before heading back toward home. We also stopped into 3 other comic shops in SC too. Just shopping and spreading the word about our books. It was a good day.
