Heroes Con 2010 - June 4th-6th

This year's Heroes Con is coming up this weekend in Charlotte, NC at the Convention Center.

Here's their main link:

http://www.heroesonline.com/heroescon/

This is the guest list link:

http://www.heroesonline.com/heroescon/guests/

It's a huge guest list once again, and even Adam Hughes is painting something on Saturday for their Art Auction Saturday night. I wouldn't be surprised if it went for over $6,000, perhaps hitting 5-figures if the piece is stunning. The ebay auction for a guaranteed sketch from him went for over $2,500 (mainly because his sketching time will be cut down due to the painting time on Saturday).

Would love to get a sketch from Brian Bolland, but I think his line will be ridiculously long. J. Scott Campbell is finally appearing at Heroes Con as well, and I'm sure he'll be a popular guest for autographs and sketches as well. I can't believe Kevin Maguire is slated to be there as well, always enjoyed his artwork and facial expressions on his characters.

I'll be there snapping tons of photos as well, unless I get stuck waiting in some of the lines for sketches, it'll be a game time decision on whether I park myself in a line or not. It might be a crazy time for art/sketch hounds.

There's also an artist reception at "Twenty-Two", and they are exhibiting a lot of artwork from a slew of artists who will be at Heroes Con, the reception is on this Friday, starting at 7 p.m. (after Heroes Con is done for Friday). It might be really crowded since there will be so many comic art fans at Heroes Con.

Here's the link for the location info:

I know we had a few NC-ians who went last year, so let us know if you're going again this year.

I'll be there Sat and Sun. Its cool to see JSC and Bolland will be there, but I'm most excited to get an autograph from Rod Whigham. Too many GI Joe comics growing up

Anybody going to see Liefeld?

Don't you wish you had some 501 Levi's jeans for Liefeld to sign?

Re: Heroes Con 2010 - June 4th-6th

I will be there with my son on Saturday! I am really looking forward to this as I was not able to attend last year due to being layed off. The year before last had an unbelievable amount of back issues...more than I had seen at Heroes Con in several years. So I am hoping for another amazing selection.

I laughed my ass off when I saw Leifeld's name on the guest list!!

Hope to see some fellow DVDTalkers there!!

Take care all!!

Definitely can't go, but I would so get my picture taken with Leifeld- and I don't really know why.

If you have a chance, stop by Todd Nauck's booth. He's doing really gorgeous sketches for $30 a pop, like this Ramona Flowers he did for me:



No lists or anything either...just wait in line. Super-super-super nice guy, and his wife's a trip too.

Re: Heroes Con 2010 - June 4th-6th

I went earlier today and had a blast! Found some great deals on some back issues. An interesting thing happened to me while I was there...After my son and I were done at the con we went across the street to Fuel Pizza for lunch and after we got settled down to eat I noticed a dude to my right sketching on his pad. I glanced over there an lo and behold it turned out to be Rob Liefeld. I have never been a big fan but I just thought it was funny how the universe works!

Patman: I look forward to seeing your photos of the con when you get them online!!

Take care all!!

Re: Heroes Con 2010 - June 4th-6th

Just got back home from all 3 days and had a blast. I bought Avengers #1 on sunday, and that busted me, so it was time to go

FYI if you saw business suit Cobra Commander, that was me

Alright, here are my pics:

I'm back! Though I'm tired and exhausted from all that walking around, and with some stuff weighing me down and killing my neck and back. Otherwise, had a great time at the con, and will be uploading my photos as soon as I sort through 2000+ photos...

I haven't gotten around to my usual write-up/website for Heroes Con 2010, but the photos can be found in this collection link for various sets/collections:

I uploaded a bunch on my Facebook account, and I was amazed at how many people chipped in with the photo-tagging of people on Facebook.
