AU REVOIR, MONSIEUR LE DHARBIN!

July 02, 2010 By: Dustin Harbin Category: DISCUSS, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, HeroesCon, NEWS

Hey guys, it’s me, Dustin Harbin! I know we’ve been quiet lately, since HeroesCon and last week’s awesome Adam Hughes release party and signing. I’ve been going through this very site, slowly but surely and changing over everything to reflect HeroesCon 2011. While we haven’t nailed down exact dates, Shelton is working hard on it, and even though I don’t know the dates yet, I do know the 2011 part, so I went ahead and stuck that up there! I’m most of the way done sprucing things up, but I’m sure there are a few little bits I’ve missed, so I’ll be cruising back over it next week to clean it up just so.

The other thing I’ll be doing next week is teaching other people how to do the stuff I do, although they know most of it already. Once again, and for what must surely be the last time, I’m going to go paddle out alone into the world of freelance cartooning, and thus end nearly 15 years of working for good ol’ Shelton Drum, who has been like a second father to me all these years, and under whose employment I’ve learned pretty much every professional lesson of my adult life. I mean, I’ve worked here since I was 21, way back in 1996, when Marvel was getting ready to go bankrupt and Kyle Rankin was the new Green Lantern and everyone was complaining that the price of an issue of same had gone up to a buck-fifty.

While I’ll still be around, especially as we switch things around for a new era of awesomeness for the store and HeroesCon, it’ll be more as a cheerleader and occasional helper-outer than a member of the paid staff. If you need anything, I would direct you to Shelton or Shawn Daughhetee, who will be handling a lot of the con gruntwork I have for so long. Shawn is about as nice a person as you could ask for, way nicer than I am, so be nice to her too okay?

Okay, I gotta go and write the Hotline, so I’ll cut this short. But just let me say thank you very much to the staff who have endured my persnickety peculiarness and control-freakitude for so long, and also who have been awesome co-workers. Also thank you to my man Andy Mansell, who’s just amazing all over and who did a lot more than anyone gave him credit for on HeroesCon this year–a lot of why it went so smooth you can lay directly at his doorstep. If every comics shop had a customer like Andy Mansell, the direct market would be a lot healthier; or at least super friendly.

And thanks most of all to Shelton, who hired me when I was barely an adult, and who’s been patient with my stubborn refusal to become any more adult, and who has let me run with a lot of ideas that others might have balked at. A good dude, that Shelton, the rest of you could do a lot worse in a boss like him. Ha! Suckers! To the rest of you guys, I’ll see you occasionally browsing the racks at Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find. And with luck next year as a guest at HeroesCon, provided my nascent cartooning career goes somewhere. Wish me luck!

TONIGHT/TOMORROW: Adam Hughes Get-Together/Signing

June 25, 2010 By: Dustin Harbin Category: EVENTS, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, NEWS, Store Signings

“Man, I wish there was a way for me to hang out with Adam Hughes this weekend.”

How many times have we all heard or thought these very words? I myself have lost count–but rest easy, Friends and Neighbors. This very weekend, we have not one but TWO excellent opportunities for you to hang out with Adam Hughes, and we cordially invite you to take advantage of both!

First up, tonight at 7pm, we’ll be hosting a casual little party in our store, complete with snacks and drinks and Adam himself, plus a bunch of us and a bunch of you. We’ll have copies of Adam’s brand new art book: Cover Run: The DC Art Of Adam Hughes for you to peruse and ooh and ahh over and even buy (our favorite option). This is a rare opportunity to hang out with Adam (and us, don’t forget us) in a relaxed setting where you don’t have to race pell-mell across the convention floor to get into a long line or anything. Adam seems like a quiet, almost shy dude at first, but once he gets going he’s pretty hilarious. I give him full marks, you guys: definitely worth meeting.

After that, go to bed, kiss your husband or wife or children or dog goodnight, get some good sleep so that you can wake up tomorrow and come back for Adam’s signing, going on from 2-4pm! He’ll be signing his art book, but I bet he’d be okay with signing one or two other things if you felt like bringing them. It’s going to be a sweet book, a sweet night, and a sweet afternoon tomorrow–don’t miss it!

HEROES DISCUSSION GROUP :: PLUTO :: Tuesday July 20!

June 25, 2010 By: Dustin Harbin Category: DISCUSS, Discussion Group, EVENTS, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, NEWS

Some of you who may have been champing at the bit for the next meeting of the Heroes Discussion Group (I’m looking at you, Matt Plummer), especially considering Discussionator Andy Mansell‘s ambitious summer schedule, listen up! Due to tonight’s Adam Hughes super-cool party and tomorrow’s Adam Hughes super-cool signing, we’ve moved the next installment of the Discussion Group to Tuesday, July 20th at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to attend ALL of our special events! We know you are busy, after all.

PLUTO is super amazing, by the way. If you’ve never read a manga, this is an excellent one to start out on–an adult retelling of one of the “Greatest Robot” story from Astro Boy, Pluto is a nuanced genre tale that is manga at its finest. I enjoyed every minute of reading all 8 volumes, and looked forward to each breathlessly. There is SO MUCH stuff for Andy to talk about too, trust me–this is going to be one of the best Discussion Groups yet, even after Andy’s tour de force with Bill Willingham and the Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall discussion at HeroesCon. Don’t miss it!

June 24, 2010 By: Dustin Harbin Category: EVENTS, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, NEWS, Store Signings

Tomorrow evening beginning at 7pm, we’ll be hosting an informal little get together in honor of our friend Adam Hughes, in advance of his signing this Saturday from 2-4pm. Come and join us for drinks and snacks, and hobnob with Adam and other guests in our store! This is an excellent way to limber yourself up for the signing the next day, where Adam will be meeting people and signing copies of his new art book, “Cover Run: The DC Art Of Adam Hughes.” You can read all the details about both events right here!

COVER RUN :: Adam Hughes In-Store Signing To Promote New Art Book

June 11, 2010 By: Dustin Harbin Category: EVENTS, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, NEWS, Store Signings

Oh man this should be a big one. Coming Saturday June 26, from 2-4pm, our buddy and benefactor Adam Hughes will be appearing in-store to sign copies of his new book Cover Run: The DC Comics Art of Adam Hughes. Adam is a wildly popular comics artists and painter, not to mention a friend of ours, and we are insanely proud to be hosting an event like this. So proud in fact, that the preceding night we’ll be hosting an informal cocktail reception in our store in advance of the event, attended by the staff, Adam, and if you’re lucky the lovely Allison Sohn, maybe even some other guest stars. That’ll start at 7pm on Friday June 25, and last until Adam says so.

Don’t miss this chance to a) hobnob with some really swell people in a friendly environment in a world-famous comics shop; b) also we’ll be there, so you can hobnob with us too; and c) come to the signing the next day and pick up an autographed copy of this fantabulous art book by one of the most recognizable creators in comics. Trifecta! We’ll be talking more about it over the next couple of weeks, but mark those calendars now!

HEROESCON :: Success Report, Bigger, Longer, More Namedroppinger!

June 11, 2010 By: Dustin Harbin Category: HeroesCon, HeroesCon News

NOTE: This is an expanded version of my post of a few days ago, including some notes and a lot of links. So if you’re like “hey this looks familiar, this guy is totally cutting corners,” then you are RIGHT my friends. But there’s a lot of new stuff down below: enjoy!

Oh man you guys, oh man. I mean literally, OH. MAN. HeroesCon. Most successful HeroesCon ever? Might be–I don’t know all the numbers, that’s more Shelton’s corner of things, but it was definitely the biggest show we’ve ever put on, by a fair margin. But somehow–shockingly to all of us on the staff, believe you me–it was one of the smoothest shows we’ve ever put on, definitely the smoothest I’ve ever been involved with. How did this happen?

10-0603-06_hc10_002

Well I’m not sure, but it’s done now, no take-backs! I just put up a ton of pictures on our Flickr page, and there’ll be more going up as I get pictures throughout the week from different people. Scroll down to the bottom of this post, where I’ve stuck a bunch of links to other con reports, photo collections, and more. I’ll hit the high points really quick, and probably flesh things out by Friday’s Heroes Hotline. But for now, here’s a taste:

10-0603-06_hc10_064

We cruised through Thursday load-in with only minimal hiccups, and all of those were the normal kind, like “I don’t like this table location.” Nothing really earth-shaking got missed, no one got into squabbles over dumb stuff, everyone was relaxed even though no one had had much sleep. By Friday morning, we dusted up a few little things and then looked up to find one billion people waiting in line to get in–I think we broke a pre-registered record this year, and then there was a whole other line of people who bought tickets just that morning! Crazy town!

10-0603-06_hc10_014

Pretty much all weekend the aisles were comfortably full, but never truly crazy crowded, with people. I feel like the traffic was up a little over last year, but it’s hard to tell–for instance, it didn’t feel wildly more crowded, but we also sold the whole hall out wall to wall, so everyone was spread over more area and there were more reasons to move around rather than clump up in one spot. We had pros and dealers from all over the country, and sold advance tickets to pretty much every state in this nation and half of the Canadian provinces, plus England and more.

10-0603-06_hc10_069

I hear a lot from people, and in the post-con reports I’ve read, that one of the things that makes HeroesCon nice for people is the access to pros people get. Everyone’s at their table most of the day (with some exceptions, of course), and most of them are signing up a storm, taking sketch requests, you name it. I don’t go to a lot of shows–working on HeroesCon is plenty for me–but from what I hear it’s this egalitarian nature of things that helps make our show stick out a little. And we like it that way.

10-0603-06_hc10_052

We had a hugely expanded Indie Island this year, which was great for people like me who love “indie” comics, not to mention a large contingent of cartoonists whose work is best known on the web, like Meredith Gran, R Stevens, Kate Beaton, and a ton of others. I’m always nervous having bigger names from the “indie” world because Heroes is essentially a superhero show after all; it’s hard to know what kind of response they’ll get. But the consensus seemed to be pretty good–some people did pretty good, and I got a few reports of banner years. Some were a little more circumspect; I could tell they were sparing my feelings a little. I just want everybody who tables at HeroesCon to be FILTHY RICH by the end of the weekend, is that so wrong? But overall I was pretty pumped about how traffic was in Indie Island, I like how it’s growing and turning into its own thing, slowly but surely.

Friday night we were part of the closing of the month-of-May “Super! The Fine Art Of Comics” exhibit at our friends Rodney & Lise’s gallery 22. The exhibit featured a solid ton of amazing artists, most of whom either were HeroesCon guests or had been guests in the past. And while it doesn’t hurt to have names like Adam Hughes, Tony Harris, and Mark Bagley in there, Shelton threw in a couple of his personal Kirby and Ditko pieces as ringers. Hey we got roots up in here!

[this picture and the one above it by Patrick Sun, part of his ENORMOUS Flickr set] What’s really cool about the exhibit’s closing exhibition is it gave us a reason to get people out of uptown Charlotte and into some of the neighborhoods where we actually hang out throughout the year. People always look at me weird when they ask what’s good to eat around the convention center and I have to think pretty hard. So it was a great scene in our Plaza-Midwood neighborhood, with a bunch of artists from all over the country hobnobbing with locals, enjoying drinks and food, and just generally relaxing. I love the hotel bar scene, don’t get me wrong, but it’s nice to breathe real actual air sometime! Being around a bunch of sweet art didn’t hurt either.

10-0603-06_hc10_061

As the show progressed into Saturday, things settled into a steady buzz of activity. We worked hard to manage traffic this year, from really putting a lot of time into designing the layout and positioning of guests, to managing lines in real-time on the floor. I’m sure we missed stuff here and there, but I didn’t hear many complaints, and the ones I heard I jumped on right away.

One thing that we did well this year was panels–we had a blue million of them, about 40% of which seemed to be moderated by The Comics Reporter’s Tom Spurgeon. This is my fault not his though–Tom agreed to do some panels for me, and then I just loaded him up–I love that guy, he’s very good at guiding a conversation and keeping the people in the audience involved. The above picture (also from Patrick’s Flickr set) is him with Brian Bolland discussing art.

Here’s Tom with (from left) Guy Davis and Ben Templesmith. If you missed HeroesCon or any of the panels, you are in luck–our buddies at The Dollar Bin recorded nearly half of the panels and are putting them up one or two a day right now. I can’t say enough nice things about those guys, Adam Daughhetee and his crew really bust their humps for four days running from room to room carrying mikes and cables, getting things worked out and levels set, and occasionally moderating their own panels! Super awesome those guys–check out the weekly Dollar Bin podcast once you’ve gotten your fill of HeroesCon panels, those dudes are friendly dudes and we support them 100%

10-0603-06_hc10_084

Another thing that’s almost bizarrely unique to HeroesCon is our yearly Art Auction. Not that the auction itself is such a visionary idea or anything–more that the people who donate work to the auction, much of it done onstage during the show itself, are so incredibly generous. Not just with their time, but these are pieces they could easily sell themselves for plenty of money. At one point I walked by the Auction stage near the front of the hall, and there was Phil Noto painting across from Adam Hughes, and both pieces were insane. What these guys do for us, it’s really hard to put into words, they really flex for us and it’s deeply, extraordinarily humbling. I’m not blowing smoke, either–it’s not like they get much out of it, you know? There’s just no replacing good solid friends, and that’s no lie.

Check out this doozie that Patrick Sun caught–our friend Irwin Hasen, who just celebrated his 92nd birthday, got surprised by Shelton with some cake and this quartet of Zatanna’s, who later helped the amazing Allison Sohn and 30 Rock’s Scott Adsit steer the biggest Art Auction we have ever had. Amazing! Shelton had this to say in an email to me; I don’t think he’ll mind me sharing it, as he’s deathly afraid of posting on the internet, apparently:

“…there were SO many big pieces this year, including J. Scott Campbell‘s, Stephane Roux‘s, and of course Mark Brooks who TIED Adam’s $8000 mark–so I guess they co-hold that record. Plus Eric Canete, Jonboy Meyers… there are so many it’s hard to even start thinking about how to thank them all! Not to mention Jerry’s Artarama, who sponsored the Auction and kept us in art supplies all weekend…”

10-0603-06_hc10_090

Speaking of which, that’s my friend Holston with his son, come to check out all the hubbub. Roan is a little hellion usually, but he was a little wild-eyed at all the hubbub, which was pretty funny.

10-0603-06_hc10_152

Speaking of amazing jobs at the Art Auction, holy crap Allison Sohn. What a lady–if you filled Uncle Scrooge’s Money Bin up with hearts instead of money, Allison would be diving in and swimming around. And having Scott Adsit on hand as co-auctioneer certainly didn’t hurt any, you know what I mean? Friends, what can I say?

10-0603-06_hc10_165

Adam’s Zatanna piece–held here by one of I think FOUR Zatanna’s in costume, led by the awesome Riki LeCotey–was the big draw of the night, netting a whopping EIGHT THOUSAND dollars. Look at this commando team in this picture–deadly!

10-0603-06_hc10_190

Within just an hour of the con’s close, this was the scene in my carefully arranged Artists Alley! Oh the carnage! But another successful HeroesCon behind us. This one felt good, the whole staff was almost giddy, slapping each other on the backs and saying “good job, good job!”

10-0603-06_hc10_193

We repaired to the store for the private afterparty and it was a SCENE–so many people crammed in there that it got pretty warm, but a summer storm blew up and cooled the air down enough that we could stand it. What a mix in our store, everyone shopping and chatting and eating barbecue from the new Pinky’s over at the corner of Freedom and Morehead in Charlotte. I walked back in the corner to hunt a book for someone and there was Guy Davis and his lovely fiance Rosemary chatting with Mike Mignola and Jason Latour next to the lit section. So awesome.

A great night, and a fitting close to a massively fun and successful HeroesCon! Thanks to the hundreds of guests, exhibitors, and fans that made it such a whopper! And a special thanks to our amazing staff, truly the A-Team of the convention world! Who could ask for a better crew, I ask you?

HEROESCON :: Success, Hooray!!

Joining up this week are Silver/Bronze Age legend Herb Trimpe, he of Incredible Hulk fame, not to mention Fantastic Four, The Nam, and good ol’ Shogun Warriors, which were the coolest toys ever in the 80′s. TRUST ME. He’s joined by fellow Silver Ager Paty Cockrum, who was a regular in the Marvel bullpen and co-creator of The Cat there.

And they’re joined by our old chum Dean Trippe, whose work you’ve probably seen in Comic Book Tattoo or his own Butterfly–not to mention the popular Project: Rooftop site, which he created!

And rounding out this update today is another ole chum, Tom Fleming, painter and cover artist on books like Elektra, Captain Marvel, and Vampirella!

Not all the news is sweet today though–it looks like we have a few cancellations to add today, which we hate to do, but these things happen. For personal reasons Mike Choi, John Paul Leon, and Skottie Young have had to cancel their appearances this year. Best of luck to all these guys, who we hope to see next year for sure. You can see the list of all the cancellations to date on our Guest List page, at the bottom of the Recent Additions area at the right of the list!
