Stan Lee is coming back to Heroes Convention! The photo above is from Stan’s first HeroesCon appearance in 1984! We’re delighted that Stan has worked us into his busy schedule even if it’s just for one day. Stan will be appearing and signing on our show floor on Saturday, June 20.

For the serious Stan ‘The Man” Fan you can join Stan Lee and a very limited number of other TRUE BELIEVERS for a meet and greet on Friday evening.

Don’t worry we’ve got plenty of packages for other budgets. For full descriptions, click through to our ticket page. Don’t forget, you need a HeroesCon 2015 3 Day pass to enjoy any of the Stan Lee packages.

Read the earliest adventures of the Inhuman’s Royal Family– Black Bolt, Medusa, Trigon, Karnak, Gorgon, Crystal along with their faithful teleporting dog Lockjaw!  See Kirby at one of his many creative peaks aided and abetted by (arguably) his greatest inker, Joe Sinnott!, Read captions filled with the Stan Lee ’60s Marvel Magic!  See what all the exclamation points are all about!!!! Collecting FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #36, #38, #41-47, #54, #62-65 and ANNUAL #5, plus portions of #48, #50, #52 and #55-61; and the Inhumans’ origin story serialized in THOR  #146-152.

Review :: Leaping Tall Buildings: The Origins of American Comics

September 03, 2012 By: Andy Mansell Category: DISCUSS, Reviews

This is for all of you out there in Heroesland who were unfamiliar with Joe Kubert and did not understand the importance of his his place in comic’s history or the importance of his (and other’s) stature in the history of our beloved medium. There is nothing to be ashamed of–comics has a long rich history and it is hard to get involved in comics’ past when the present is moving so quickly toward the future.
Now, I love comic books and there is only one thing I love more than Comic Books (besides my wife, daughter, and  those fresh Harris Teeter donuts with the sprinkles) and that is Books about Comics. I am a Comic Lit junkie and I try to read every book that gets published about Comic History and Comics Analysis.  And there is a lot out there.  Some of it is OK, some of it is good and some of it is great.  Most books are for the experienced Comic Enthusiast but  sometimes a book is published for fans who are new to our rich history. And Leaping Tall Buildings: The Origins of American Comics by writer Christopher Irving and photographer Seth Kushner is an ideal place for the initiate to annoint themselves in the rich history of Comic book past. In all honesty, the book is really a Photography Portrait album peppered with quite a few fascinating quotes from the creators themselves.
