REMEMBERING OUR FRIEND, THE INDELIBLE PATRICK DEAN

May 13, 2021 By: Karla Southern Category: Uncategorized

A Remembrance of our Friend,
From the Staff of Heroes 

The Heroes family lost a dear friend this week when cartoonist Patrick Dean succumbed to ALS after several years of courageously fighting the disease. Patrick left an indelible mark not only on us as a staff, but on our HeroesCon Indie Island every year. He was always kind, warm, and funny every time we were lucky enough to see him. His art showed knowledge and appreciation for everything from Jack Davis to Frank Robbins, and an ability to capture numerous genres within his own unique style.

His wonderful sense of humor was always a big part of our appreciation for him, even after his diagnosis. His “Half Assed Cosplay Ideas” are still in regular rotation around our shop after all these years.

Along with his excellent book Eddie’s Week, Patrick will also be regarded for co-founding (with Robert Newsome) FLUKE, the annual mini comics and zine festival in Athens, GA. The communal celebration of comics and the people who create them shares an ethos with our HeroesCon Indie Island, in part because Patrick, Robert, and many others who set up at FLUKE have become a dear part of our own con family over the years.

We all watched in awe as Patrick not only continued to produce work following his diagnosis, but arguably some of the most powerful of his life. The political pieces he drew in recent years poignantly captured the tumultuous times we live in with such clarity; it was obvious that he was using his last years to try to not only produce as much art as he could, but to make that art significant. During the pandemic and lockdown, his art was something we all looked forward to seeing and sharing.

When he lost the ability to draw with his hands, he learned how to draw with his eyes using eyegaze technology. His perseverance to continue to produce art is a testament to the strength of his will, and his belief in the power of art. It is but a part of what will be his enduring legacy as an artist and an incredible human being.

Our store and convention patrons really rallied around Patrick and his family at our last HeroesCon, and we’re grateful for everyone who stopped by and saw him that weekend. He always felt like part of the family, but having his art appear on one of our Indie Island shirts that year (2019) makes him a part of the expansive art legacy of the con, and we’re honored by that.

With the nature of Patrick’s illness, his passing was not altogether unexpected. That doesn’t make his immense loss any easier. The entire Heroes staff sends our love and encouragement to Patrick’s wonderful family, and all his friends and fans across the comics world. Our lives are infinitely better for having him in our family.

HEROESCON UPDATE :: APRIL 2, 2021

April 02, 2021 By: Karla Southern Category: DISCUSS, EVENTS, Exhibitors, Feast Your Eyes, Guest List, HeroesCon, HeroesCon News, Looking Ahead, NEWS, Now Read This!, Schedule, Uncategorized

HC2020-UPDATE

June 2022 will mark the 40th Anniversary of the Heroes Convention!

You know that after TWO YEARS of pandemic handcuffs, we will pull out ALL THE STOPS and make HeroesCon 2022 one FOR THE AGES!

“A June bug flew from the warmth he once knew,
And I wished for once I weren’t right,
Why we used to laugh together,
And we’d dance to any old song,”
From “Far From Me” by John Prine

The past several months have seen us all stuck in LIMBO, quietly watching COVID-19 numbers rise and fall as restrictions fluctuate across the country, never knowing what the next month might hold.

It is after careful consideration for the HEALTH and SAFETY of EVERYONE, we have made the decision to FAST FORWARD directly to HeroesCon 2022.

ALL 2020/2021 HeroesCon Tickets, Artist Alley Tables and Exhibitor Booth Reservations will automatically transfer to the 2022 Heroes Convention at this time.
We hope that you will continue to support us as we begin planning our 40th Anniversary show.

HeroesCon 2022 Hotel Rates will be made available as soon as 2022 show dates have been finalized.

We are currently looking at the possibility of holding a much smaller convention in the fall, but we know that a smaller show is no substitute for the Heroes Convention.
Details of this show are tentative at this time, with announcements to follow as soon as possible. HOWEVER, if you have purchased a 2020 or 2021 3-Day Pass for the Heroes Convention, your ticket will get you into this smaller show, as well as the 2022 Heroes Convention.

 

Please know that we have not made this decision lightly.

After what has felt like an eternity of uncertainty, we are hopeful that there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines are being distributed on a wide spectrum and we are slowly starting to see the promise of a return to “normal” in the months ahead.

However, even with the increased numbers of vaccinations, we understand that it may not be safe to hold an indoor gathering of thousands of people, even three months from now; especially when you consider that the vast majority of our guests travel from across the country, or even from across the globe.

We PRIDE ourselves on the wealth of talent that fills our Artist Alley each year.

At the beginning of March we sent out a poll to over 300 Featured Guests from recent and past Heroes Conventions. Of the 200+ responses we have received, 95% of those have stated that they would not feel comfortable attending a show in June of 2021, with most adding that they would prefer to wait until 2022 to attend a convention.

This, coupled with feedback from customers and exhibitors, has informed us that June 2021 is still too soon for most to feel safe attending a convention on the scale of the HeroesCon. We have taken all of these concerns very seriously, and agree that the health of EVERYONE is the MOST IMPORTANT factor going forward.

Other extenuating circumstances that have influenced our decision at this time: the Charlotte Convention Center will be undergoing construction that could impact our floor plan as well as the use of escalators. As of today, enforced capacity restrictions will remain in effect until fall of 2021, with limited on-site concessions, and sustained social distancing requirements between individuals as well as between tables and booths.

Under these circumstances it just wouldn’t be a HeroesCon.

 

“Ain’t it funny how an old broken bottle,
Looks just like a diamond ring,
But it’s far, far from me.”
From “Far From Me” by John Prine 1971

HCTHOR-SQ

We appreciate you and your continued support,
and we THANK YOU for being a part of the
HEROESCON FAMILY.

Be well, stay safe, and look out for one another. -Heroes

The Heroes Family Remembers One Of Our Own

December 14, 2020 By: Karla Southern Category: Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, HeroesCon, NEWS, Uncategorized

Charles Kibby = Hero Extraordinaire

Kibby with Seth and Sergio 2019-crop

Charles Kibby with Heroes’ Seth Peagler and Sergio Aragonés at the 2019 Heroes Convention.

What can’t we say about this treasure of a human being?

Charles Kibby was a Gentle-Giant, a big lovable Ginger Teddy-Bear, and a BELOVED member of the Heroes Family.

With his intimidating stature, he could have easily have been a holy-terror…and yet, he was the sweetest, kindest, most generous soul.

It was an HONOR to have him serve as a volunteer during the Heroes Convention each year, as well as at most all of our other Heroes events.
He was a regular presence at the Charlotte Mini-Con, Free Comic Book Day, and at nearly ALL of our In-Store Signings.
He could handle ANY situation thrown at him with a calming charm.

Kibby’s was the kind of presence that automatically made everyone feel at ease.
During stressful events he would kindly remind members of the Heroes Staff to take a break, and if he received protest, would occasionally throw them over his shoulder to MAKE them eat lunch.
He was a friend to almost EVERY ARTIST and VENDOR on our show floor, as well as at other shows across the country, constantly checking in on them during shows. Kibby would happily go well out of his way to help ANYONE, and you always knew you could count of him. 

He was ALWAYS looking out FOR OTHERS. 
To know him, was to LOVE him. And, like many others have stated, once he knew you he immediately made you feel like family.

The Heroes Family, and the Comics Community at large, are devastated today by the news that he lost his battle with COVID-19.

We know that everyone is tired of hearing this, but PLEASE WEAR A MASK.
Kibby wore his. He was careful. Our friend got sick because of someone else’s negligence.
If you won’t wear a mask for your own health, please wear one for the sake of someone you love.

We LOVE YOU CHARLES KIBBY.
You are, and ALWAYS WILL BE, Heroes Family.
