If you have a want-list of comics, now would be a great time for us to look through our warehouse to fill in the gaps in your collection!

Spock-Says-Wash-Yo-Hands


The following are basic precautions recommended by the CDC:

  1. Clean your hands often. Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  2. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
  3. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, particularly your eyes, nose and mouth.
  4. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  5. If you cough or sneeze, use a shirt sleeve or tissue, not your hands. Then, wash your hands again.
  6. Practice Social-Distancing, which means putting at least 6 feet in between yourself and anyone near you in public spaces.
  7. If you must greet others, avoid handshakes or hugs. Opt for waves or an elbow bump. (We like using Mr. Spock’s token hand gesture!)
  8. Keep your work area well sanitized.
  9. If you aren’t feeling well and are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, please restrict your exposure and seek medical attention if necessary.

Tickets for the Charlotte Mini-Con, Saturday, February 8th are $5.00 and are available here.
Attendees 18 years of age and under get in FREE on Saturday.

LOCATION:
THE WESTIN CHARLOTTE
601 S College St, Charlotte NC 28202

Charlotte Mini-Con will be held in the Providence Ballroom of the Westin.
The Providence Ballroom is located on the ground floor of the Westin, and is where we hold the annual “HeroesCon Drink and Draw”, if you have been to that event during the Heroes Convention in June.

The Providence Ballroom can be accessed directly from the courtyard area of the Westin (where the fountain is) located off of College Street, or via the parking deck and its corresponding elevators. There are two entrances to the parking deck, one off of Stonewall Street next to Whole Foods and one off of College Street, just before you get to the courtyard entrance of the Westin. (Photos Below)

If you will be parking in the parking deck, you will need to exit the elevators at the Lobby Level. The elevators from the parking deck open pretty much directly at the Providence Ballroom.

PARKING:
THE WESTIN PARKING DECK IS A PAID PARKING DECK – $25.00
There is no comped parking for anyone, not even members of the Heroes staff, during the Charlotte Mini-Con. If you are staying at the hotel, parking may be included as part of your reservation.
(The Westin does NOT own the parking deck…and therefore has no control over the parking fees.)

unnamed (1)

The WESTIN CHARLOTTE COURTYARD off of COLLEGE STREET. The double doors at the right are the entrances outside of the Providence Ballroom. There is access to the parking deck is to the right as well. The Main Lobby of the Westin, where guests check in, is located to the left at the Valet Parking kiosk.

unnamed (2)

The COLLEGE STREET entrance to the Westin Parking deck is located just BEFORE the Westin Courtyard, at the REGIONS building.

The STONEWALL STREET entrance to the Westin Parking Deck is located just next to Whole Foods, and underneath the pedestrian air-bridge.

The STONEWALL STREET entrance to the Westin Parking Deck is located just next to Whole Foods, and underneath the pedestrian air-bridge.

There is on-street parking, as well as other paid lots in uptown Charlotte. If you take a Lyft or an Uber, you can have them drop you off in the Courtyard Entrance off of College Street.
We also HIGHLY recommend making use of the Charlotte CATS Blue Line Light Rail which has a Stonewall Station stop that will drop you off AT THE WESTIN.

LIGHT RAIL:
The Westin Charlotte is located at the Stonewall Station stop on the Charlotte LYNX Blue Line.
https://charlottenc.gov/cats/rail/lynx-blue-line/Pages/Stations-Park-and-Rides.aspx

Utilizing the LYNX Light Rail would be an EXCELLENT solution for travel to and from the Charlotte Mini-Con!!
We encourage the use of the LYNX Light Rail, which runs from I-485/South Blvd in South Charlotte to UNC Charlotte Main in the University Area.
Parking at most of the stations outside of Uptown Charlotte is free, with LYNX fares ranging from $2.20 (K-12/62+) for a round-trip ticket, to $6.60 for one-day unlimited rides for all age groups.
https://charlottenc.gov/cats/fares/fares-passes/Pages/lynx-fares.aspx

CHARLOTTE MINI-CON 2020 :: ADAM HUGHES SIGNING / SKETCHING SCHEDULE

February 4, 2020 at 8:30 pm By:

CLTMINICON2020-update

Adam Hughes #CLTMiniCon Schedule Announced!

From Adam Hughes‘ Facebook Page:

Adam will be returning to Charlotte, NC in just a few short days. Below is some information regarding Adam’s appearance at the Charlotte Mini Con on Saturday, February 8th and at the night before’s CGC reception event.

On Friday, February 7th there will be a reception from 7pm-10pm for people interested in having items signed and/or CGC graded. The admission to the Friday night event is $15 paid in advance, or at the door (although the location of the event has not yet been announced, and my understanding is that it will be emailed to anyone that pre-registers). Your admission to the Friday night event will also qualify you for early VIP entry at the Saturday convention. Adam’s signatures at the Friday night event will be $20 for all signatures, Witnessed or not. The number of signatures a fan can request will not be limited at this event. More info at Charlotte Mini-Con 2020 and CGC Signature Series VIP Event

On Saturday the Mini Con opens at 11am (with an early start for VIPs) and ends at 5pm. Admission is $5. Adam will be asking fans and collectors to limit your signatures to 5 per person, since the show is just a short 6 hours. His schedule for the event is as follows:

Friday 7pm – 10pm signatures only (no quantity limit).

Saturday Early Opening -12 noon: Head sketches
Saturday 12:30pm – 1:30pm signatures
Saturday 1:30pm – 3:00pm Head sketches
Saturday 3:30pm – 5:00pm Signatures
Saturday 5:00pm Show Closes

Signatures at the Friday event: $20 with no quantity limit.

Signatures at the Saturday show: Un-Witnessed signatures are free for the first 5, and $10 each after that. Witnessed signatures are $20 each. Please be prepared to limit your signatures to a total of 10 pieces if the line requires it.

Head sketches are $50 regular or $100 Witnessed. Head sketches are one per person; however you are welcome to get back into the line for a second, third or whatever number sketch if the line isn’t closed and time allows. Due to the nature of the short hours of the show, we cannot promise there will be enough time for Allison to color head sketches, although she’ll be ready with her colors in case there is time.

We will have a portfolio of Original Artwork and prints for sale with us.

Potter and Cedric will also be appearing, but they will not be sketching or signing at this event.
