We’re celebrating our 35th Anniversary June 16-18, 2017 and we’d love to have you here in our exhibiting in our Artists Alley!

Eventbrite - HEROESCON 2017 :: ARTISTS ALLEY TABLE

ARTISTS ALLEY TABLE: $300
Includes 6′ table, 2 chairs, and 2 passes. Great for a solo venture or a two-person team. Your name and a website link will be featured on our HeroesCon Artists Alley page.

Artists Alley at HeroesCon is reserved for creators and the work they have made themselves. No resellers, vendors, or representatives will be permitted.

Heroes Convention is not only one of the most recognizable names on the comics convention circuit, but has a well-deserved reputation as a convention that puts comics first, meaning aisles packed with fans looking for new comics and comic-related merchandise to check out. Our 2017 HeroesCon is our 35th and will be one of our biggest yet, and booth space is fully expected to sell out well in advance of the show. No space is reserved without payment in full: act now to reserve your 6′ table, 2 chairs and 2 badges!

PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF YOUR NEIGHBORS! Excessively tall displays behind tables are not permitted. Nothing over 10′ will be permitted. If you have a tall display, please ask to be placed on the perimeter where there is a wall behind your table.

FOR ADDITIONAL SEATS above the allotment you receive with your purchased space(s), the cost is $50 per additional seat, up to a maximum of 1 additional person per Artists Alley Table, no exceptions–we want everyone to have the most pleasant and comfortable show they can, and overcrowded tables are the opposite of pleasant and comfortable.

NOTE that paid spaces in Artists Alley are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Tell us if you have seating preferences (a wall behind your table for example). We try as hard as we can to honor these, but obviously we cannot honor all of them, so thanks for your understanding!

REFUNDS: If you cancel 90 or more days out from the show you are entitled to a 50% refund of your payment. If you cancel within 90 days of the show your payment is forfeit and you will not receive a refund.

Check our FAQ if you have more questions!

THANK YOU RICHARD THOMPSON

July 28, 2016 By: Seth Peagler Category: Comics Industry, NEWS

Richard at HeroesCon 2011 by Heather Peagler

Richard at HeroesCon 2011 by Heather Peagler

We lost a dear member of the Heroes family yesterday when the great Richard Thompson passed away after his long battle with Parkinson’s disease. There will rightly be far more eloquent essays on the timeless brilliance of Richard’s Cul de Sac strip across the industry, but right now we simply mourn the loss of our friend. He entertained us with his art, and drew us into that world with his humility. When he was diagnosed with the disease, he inspired us with grace and humor even through the hardest days of struggle. Most importantly, he quietly lead us to start raising money alongside Team Cul de Sac and the Michael J. Fox foundation in their funding of Parkinson’s research.

The HeroesCon Drink and Draw has been an annual event for six years now, with our fundraising contributing to the nearly $225,000 raised by Team Cul de Sac during that time. We mention that because our fight against Parkinson’s disease is still going on, and we hope any of you who love Richard, Cul de Sac, HeroesCon, our Drink and Draw event, or the fine art of comic strips, and are able, will donate to Team Cul de Sac and the Michael J. Fox Foundation in Richard’s memory today at this link: http://bit.ly/DonateTeamCulDeSac . We loved Richard the artist and the man, and offer our sincere condolences to his family, friends, fans, and everyone in comics who celebrates his life and work. All of us at Heroes will continue to fight Parkinson’s disease in his memory every year at HeroesCon.
Please revisit Craig Fischer’s 2012 tribute to the greatness of Thompson here.
