serving the convention community since 2007.

Had a great time at Heroescon yesterday. To me this is the Comic Book Convention. There are no B celebrities like at Wizard World. No Wrestlers of any kind. It’s about the comics. And the wealth of talent on the show floor makes it the place for comic fans of all tastes. You can go to this show with less than an hundrend bucks and come home with some amazing artwork. Or you could save your money throughout the year and come home with a gallery. The point is, if you like comics and comics arts, this is the show for you. About half the room is dealers so if your fandom is the digging through bins passion then there is more than enough of that for you here as well.

One of the highlights for me was seeing James Silvani and buying that awesome Darkwing Duck ‘Terror’ print from him. It’s already on my wall. Other purchases included comics from many of the indie artists, a five dollar Doctor Who trade, Y the last Man deluxe #4 and a Coyote Ragtime Show Box set.

On a personal note we have made many friends as we do many of the smaller shows across the area, and it really becomes one of the nice things about this convention. Catching up with old friends.
This is Mike Sudduth, who is really talented and just one of the many friends we saw at the show yesterday.

Heroescon rocks. If you live on the east coast, or can afford the plane ticket, make the trip next year. The dates are June 22nd-24th, 2012. Oh and look for us in Artist Alley. If we can get a table, we will be there.
