March 11, 2020 By: Karla Southern Category: Comics Industry, DISCUSS, EVENTS, HeroesCon, Looking Ahead, NEWS, Now Read This!, This Just In, Uncategorized

Asterix CoronavirusREGARDING COVID-19:

The Heroes Convention has no intention of canceling or postponing our 2020 show at this time.

We will monitor events closely and take every precaution necessary to ensure the health and safety of ALL our Guests and Attendees.
We will adhere to any and all CDC protocols and make any adjustments necessary.

In the meantime, please remember that handshakes are unnecessary when a polite elbow tap, friendly nod, or Mr. Spock’s “Live Long and Prosper” hand gesture will suffice.

Stay safe. WASH YOUR HANDS, take your vitamins, and we will see you all in June!
