YOU MADE OUR 40TH

FANTASTIC

HC2022HEROJAM-THANKYOU

It’s been a little over a week since we closed the doors on our Fantastic 40th Anniversary Heroes Convention at the Charlotte Convention Center!

We took the past eight days to try to get everything unpacked, sorted, and put back where it belongs so that we can find it again NEXT YEAR when we return to Father’s Day Weekend for our 41st Anniversary Heroes Convention, June 16-18, 2023!

We can’t THANK YOU enough for your support over the past two years!

We admit, our HeroesCon reflexes were a little rusty going into this year’s event, and we have A LOT of notes going into next year on how to make things better!

To ALL OF OUR ATTENDEES:
THANK YOU!!!
You are the reason we do what we do.
It is seeing you all HAVING FUN, buying comics, showing off your costumes, getting sketches, meeting your Comic-Creating Heroes, sharing your love of comics and comics-culture with your friends, family and loved-ones. THAT makes everything we put into the show WORTH IT.

TO ALL OF OUR ARTISTS & CREATORS:
THANK YOU!!!
You MAKE the HeroesCon the unique, comics-focused,
family-reunion that it is!

We appreciate ALL OF YOU for taking the time out of your schedules to spend a weekend with us here in Charlotte, NC, celebrating comics, and the comics community.
Whether you are a seasoned PRO, an Independent Creator, or if you bought a table in our Artist Alley, you help to make our show the creator and comics-focused destination for which it has become known.
Whether you create beloved characters, and your art and/or words grace not only comic-books, but visual media, toys, t-shirts, lunchboxes and more…
Or if you’re a creator just getting started, who loves to draw, write, make, or create…
WE THANK YOU!

TO ALL OF OUR EXHIBITORS:
THANK YOU!!!
You ENSURE that there is SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE at our show!
Whether you bring the BEST Gold, Silver, or Modern Age Comics on the show floor, or if you bring that hard-to-find statue, Funko POP, Pokemon Card, new favorite T-Shirt, video-game, or trinket…
You make sure everyone has an opportunity to find something suited uniquely to them, and we appreciate how hard you all work to bring your absolute best to our show!

TO ALL OF OUR “KIBBY’S SIDEKICKS”:
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
We couldn’t do ANY OF THIS without YOU!
Your willingness to help us throughout the weekend of HeroesCon does NOT go unnoticed, or unappreciated.
You honor the memory of our beloved friend, and HeroesCon Volunteer Extraordinare, Charles Kibby, with your generosity, spirit, and love for the comics community!
Our small staff thank you ALL from the bottom of our grateful hearts.

TO ALL OF OUR COSPLAY COORDINATORS:
YOU ALL ARE INCREDIBLE!
A SUPER-SIZED SHOUT OUT TO:
Amberle Linnea CosPlay, Matt Clark, Becca Bazzle, Cheralyn Lambeth, DJ Spider, Kalliste CosPlay, and those who helped these magical creatures throughout the weekend…
THANK YOU!!!
The CosPlay Masquerade was a highlight of this year’s event, and you all created pure magic out of chaos!
You made every costumed individual in the room feel like a SUPERSTAR, because YOU are SUPERSTARS!
We appreciate your hard work, and can’t wait to see what we can cook up for next year!

TO THOSE BEHIND THE SCENES:
YOU KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK!
To our TINY STAFF…you are all AMAZING!

We owe MANY THANKS to our 2022 Decorator, Carolina Tradeshow Decorators.
You were fantastic to work with, and you helped MAKE the show feel like HOME. After two years without doing a show, and having to recreate so many aspects of the show from scratch, you made it look like we hadn’t skipped a beat. We honestly can’t thank you enough for your hard work, communication, and your dedication to making the show look great!
To the wizards at Evergreen Creative Projects…THANK YOU!!!
If you liked our banners, aisle signs, info booth designs, t-shirts and more…it’s all thanks to these guys who made the impossible, possible!
Also, THANK YOU to The Fine Print Shoppe, BOINGO Graphics, and to Mullen Publications, Inc. as well!

And to all those who have had a hand, over the years, in helping to us reach 40…
Whether you be family, friend, co-worker, acquaintance,
or mystical being… 

THANK YOU!

We look forward to having you all with us again for
HeroesCon 2023, June 16-18!!
