As long-time readersmight recall, HeroesCon is usually the only show I get to, and it’s always a lot of fun. In fact, last year’s trip with Jim Shelley and the Flashback Universe crew was hands down the best con experience I’ve ever had, and I’m hoping that this year’s will be even better.
First off, I’m rolling with a pretty big crew this year that includes “Rad” Chad Bowers and “Jazzy” Jay Potts, and once we get to the show, there’ll be plenty of people to meet and hang with. After all, any chance to talk with Matts Fraction and Wilson is a good time, and I’m really looking forward to meeting Internet Pals Benito Cereno and (yet another) Matt Sturges.
And if you’re an ISB reader, I’d like to meet you too. So if you find yourself in or around Charlotte this weekend (or if you’re willing to make the trip for one of the best conventions in the country), swing by the convention center and say hello. We don’t have a table this year, but I’ll be wandering around for pretty much the whole weekend.
For the record, I look something like this…
…although I’m planning on not wearing a shirt with anything from Super Mario Bros. on it for the duration of the weekend.
And oh-ho! What’s this, dear reader? It seems that in the picture above, I’m holding a world premiere ashcan that will be yours for the asking at HeroesCon this year! And I can promise you, it’s not only totally awesome, but it will finally answer the burning question…
So look for me at the show. And if you hear anyone stand up at the DC Nation panel to ask Dan DiDio “When you gonna let me write Batman, dog?”, clap. That’ll be me.
See you in Charlotte! And the rest of you, don’t break anything while I’m gone.
