CGC to offer ON-SITE GRADING at the 2024 HeroesCon!!

For the first time in more than four years, CGC will be offering on-site grading for comic books! Submit your comics for on-site grading at booth #101, June 14-15 (plus we’ll be accepting a limited number of WalkThrough submissions until noon on June 16), and get them back before the end of the show. Read on for pricing and more details.

Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) is excited to announce on-site comic book grading at Heroes Convention Charlotte, in Charlotte, North Carolina, on June 14-16, 2024. That’s right, get your books back by the end of the show!

Regular submissions of comics, cards, video games and home video collectibles will also be accepted, and collectors can look forward to giveaways, swag and signings — all at booth #101!

About HeroesCon

The Heroes Convention (“HeroesCon”) has gained renown for its emphasis on comics and its welcoming environment for all ages. It offers a unique opportunity for fans to engage directly with industry professionals and exhibitors, with a stellar lineup of guests like John Beatty, Mark Buckingham, Amy Chu and Skottie Young and MANY MORE!

Submit comics for on-site grading

CGC is offering on-site grading at this year’s HeroesCon for all Universal and Signature Series comic book submissions. On-site grading, including ReHolder submissions, will be available Friday, June 14, through Saturday, June 15. A very limited quantity of WalkThrough submissions will still be accepted on Sunday, June 16, until 12:00 p.m. All you need is a free CGC account to submit for on-site grading, but paid members receive discounts (and other benefits). Learn more and select your membership level here.

On-site grading submissions are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. CGC expects extremely high demand and space is limited, so submitters are encouraged to submit at the start of the show. If on-site grading submissions need to be cut off early, submissions will still be accepted for grading at CGC headquarters at the regular fees and turnaround times.

In the next few weeks, the CGC online submission form will be updated to show on-site grading services and fees at HeroesCon. Look for an announcement when the on-site grading submission option is available.

HEROESCON 2023 :: Jeff Smith’s “Dawn of Man” National Tour 2023

February 09, 2023 By: Karla Southern Category: DISCUSS, EVENTS, Exclusives, Feast Your Eyes, HeroesCon, HeroesCon News, HeroesCon Panels, Indie Island, Looking Ahead, NEWS, Now Read This!, This Just In

Jeff Smith will be at the 2023 Heroes Convention!!

Jeff Smith’s “Dawn of Man” National Tour 2023

Key West, FL – February 9, 2023:  New York Times Bestselling Author Jeff Smith and his publishing house, Cartoon Books, embark on their first national tour in years in support of Smith’s new critically acclaimed series: TUKI.
The tour consists of several convention appearances as well as a unique component – Old Route 66 – where we’ll be giving presentations and signings at each stop. Beginning in March and lasting through October, we have 15 confirmed stops with more to be added throughout the year!

What folks are saying about Jeff Smith’s TUKI:
“2022 Best Graphic Novel for Adults”
AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION

“Best Original Graphic Novel of the Year”
COMIC BOOK COUPLES COUNSELING PODCAST

“Fight for Family is just what you would expect from the creator of Bone and RASL–an immersive, emotional, and delightful visual masterpiece.”
THE COMICS JOURNAL

“If Smith’s iconic BONE weren’t proof enough, TUKI resoundingly restates his status as a master cartoonist of our era…New readers will love it, and fans of BONE will delight in Smith’s return to fantasy adventure with an ensemble of idiosyncratic characters.”
BOOKLIST *STARRED* REVIEW

“Fans of classic adventure will not be disappointed… Smith (BONE) goes prehistoric in this fabulously drawn anthropological fantasy.… the characters and scenery remain consistently stunning to gaze at, page after page.”

FANTASTIC 40TH HEROESCON :: THANK YOU!!!

July 05, 2022 By: Karla Southern Category: DISCUSS, EVENTS, Exhibitors, Feast Your Eyes, Guest List, HeroesCon, HeroesCon News, Indie Island, Looking Ahead, NEWS, Now Read This!, Sidekicks = Volunteers

YOU MADE OUR 40TH

FANTASTIC

HC2022HEROJAM-THANKYOU

It’s been a little over a week since we closed the doors on our Fantastic 40th Anniversary Heroes Convention at the Charlotte Convention Center!

We took the past eight days to try to get everything unpacked, sorted, and put back where it belongs so that we can find it again NEXT YEAR when we return to Father’s Day Weekend for our 41st Anniversary Heroes Convention, June 16-18, 2023!

We can’t THANK YOU enough for your support over the past two years!

We admit, our HeroesCon reflexes were a little rusty going into this year’s event, and we have A LOT of notes going into next year on how to make things better!

To ALL OF OUR ATTENDEES:
THANK YOU!!!
You are the reason we do what we do.
It is seeing you all HAVING FUN, buying comics, showing off your costumes, getting sketches, meeting your Comic-Creating Heroes, sharing your love of comics and comics-culture with your friends, family and loved-ones. THAT makes everything we put into the show WORTH IT.

TO ALL OF OUR ARTISTS & CREATORS:
THANK YOU!!!
You MAKE the HeroesCon the unique, comics-focused,
family-reunion that it is!

We appreciate ALL OF YOU for taking the time out of your schedules to spend a weekend with us here in Charlotte, NC, celebrating comics, and the comics community.
Whether you are a seasoned PRO, an Independent Creator, or if you bought a table in our Artist Alley, you help to make our show the creator and comics-focused destination for which it has become known.
Whether you create beloved characters, and your art and/or words grace not only comic-books, but visual media, toys, t-shirts, lunchboxes and more…
Or if you’re a creator just getting started, who loves to draw, write, make, or create…
WE THANK YOU!

TO ALL OF OUR EXHIBITORS:
THANK YOU!!!
You ENSURE that there is SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE at our show!
Whether you bring the BEST Gold, Silver, or Modern Age Comics on the show floor, or if you bring that hard-to-find statue, Funko POP, Pokemon Card, new favorite T-Shirt, video-game, or trinket…
You make sure everyone has an opportunity to find something suited uniquely to them, and we appreciate how hard you all work to bring your absolute best to our show!

TO ALL OF OUR “KIBBY’S SIDEKICKS”:
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
We couldn’t do ANY OF THIS without YOU!
Your willingness to help us throughout the weekend of HeroesCon does NOT go unnoticed, or unappreciated.
You honor the memory of our beloved friend, and HeroesCon Volunteer Extraordinare, Charles Kibby, with your generosity, spirit, and love for the comics community!
Our small staff thank you ALL from the bottom of our grateful hearts.

TO ALL OF OUR COSPLAY COORDINATORS:
YOU ALL ARE INCREDIBLE!
A SUPER-SIZED SHOUT OUT TO:
Amberle Linnea CosPlay, Matt Clark, Becca Bazzle, Cheralyn Lambeth, DJ SpiderKalliste CosPlay, and those who helped these magical creatures throughout the weekend…
THANK YOU!!!
The CosPlay Masquerade was a highlight of this year’s event, and you all created pure magic out of chaos!
You made every costumed individual in the room feel like a SUPERSTAR, because YOU are SUPERSTARS!
We appreciate your hard work, and can’t wait to see what we can cook up for next year!

TO THOSE BEHIND THE SCENES:
YOU KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK!
To our TINY STAFF…you are all AMAZING!

We owe MANY THANKS to our 2022 Decorator, Carolina Tradeshow Decorators.
You were fantastic to work with, and you helped MAKE the show feel like HOME. After two years without doing a show, and having to recreate so many aspects of the show from scratch, you made it look like we hadn’t skipped a beat. We honestly can’t thank you enough for your hard work, communication, and your dedication to making the show look great!
To the wizards at Evergreen Creative Projects…THANK YOU!!!
If you liked our banners, aisle signs, info booth designs, t-shirts and more…it’s all thanks to these guys who made the impossible, possible!
Also, THANK YOU to The Fine Print Shoppe, BOINGO Graphics, and to Mullen Publications, Inc. as well!

And to all those who have had a hand, over the years, in helping to us reach 40…
Whether you be family, friend, co-worker, acquaintance,
or mystical being… 

THANK YOU!

We look forward to having you all with us again for
HeroesCon 2023, June 16-18!!

Stay tuned for updates on tickets, Guest Announcements and More by signing up for our Weekly Newsletter!!
