Artists Alley at HeroesCon is reserved for creators and the work they have made themselves. No resellers, vendors, or representatives will be permitted.

Heroes Convention is not only one of the most recognizable names on the comics convention circuit, but has a well-deserved reputation as a convention that puts comics first, meaning aisles packed with fans looking for new comics and comic-related merchandise to check out. Our 2019 HeroesCon is our 37th annual event, and booth space is fully expected to sell out well in advance of the show. No space is reserved without payment in full: act now to reserve your 6′ table, 2 chairs and 2 badges!

We want everyone to have the most pleasant and comfortable show they can, and overcrowded tables are the opposite of pleasant and comfortable.

NOTE that paid spaces in Artists Alley are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Tell us if you have seating preferences (a wall behind your table for example). We try as hard as we can to honor these, but obviously we cannot honor all of them, so thank you for your understanding!

HEROES DISCUSSION GROUP RETURNS OCTOBER 31ST!

October 12, 2018 at 3:16 pm By:

The HEROES DISCUSSION GROUP returns for yet another meeting-of-the-minds on HALLOWEEN NIGHT, October 31st!

This time, the discussion group dives deep into the world of…

HELLBOY LOGO 2The discussion group will be focusing on the first three HELLBOY stories which have been recently collected into the “SEED OF DESTRUCTION” Omnibus from Dark Horse Comics. If you haven’t read these incredible stories yet, we HIGHLY recommend that you do! You can pick up a copy of HELLBOY at Heroes any time!


HELLBOY VOL 1HELLBOY OMNIBUS
SEED OF DESTRUCTION TP VOL 01
by Mike Mignola
The Hellboy saga begins-with over 300 pages drawn by Mignola! For the first time, Hellboy’s complete story is presented in chronological order for the ultimate reading experience.
The story jumps from Hellboy’s mysterious World War II origin to his 1994 confrontation with the man who summoned him to earth, and the earliest signs of the plague of frogs. Avoiding his supposed fate as the herald of the end of the world, Hellboy continues with the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, fighting alongside Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and drafting Roger Homunculus into his own ill-fated service with the B.P.R.D.
This 368-page volume covers Hellboy’s adventures published from 1994 to 1997, reprinting Seed of DestructionWake the Devil, and “Wolves of St August,” “The Chained Coffin,” and “Almost Colossus,” from The Chained Coffin and The Right Hand of Doom.

• We reserve the right to eject violators of our policies, without refund, at our discretion.

Heroes Head Honcho Shelton Drum on the creation of the Heroes Pop Swap from 2011:

Heroes Pop Swap is an idea that I had on the way back from a recent road trip. Before the Heroes Convention and the Charlotte Mini-Con and even the Heroes store, local comics fans would gather and trade comics and talk about our hobby. It was usually something like a sidewalk sale put together by a local bookstore and/or newsstand. I remember going to similar events in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Raleigh and the famous Murray Brothers’ backyard and basement gatherings in Durham during the latter half of the 70’s. None of us “old-timers” were official dealers yet. None of us had stores. We just shared a common interest in collecting as well as buying and selling comic books and related stuff.

Bridgit Heroes Heads - Shelton

 

We thought we’d try to bring back that feeling from those events with theHeroes Pop Swap: Charlotte’s Pop Culture Swap Meet. For a nominal fee anyone can reserve space and sell items from their personal collection to other fans who are sure to give that item a good home. We are also encouraging local artists and artisans to come and sell their art, pop-culture related crafts and comics.

There will be no professional dealers. Professional will be defined by me personally. If you buy and sell comics regularly either at conventions or online you will be excluded from setting up, but I encourage you to come shop! I anticipate a lot cool items being offered.

We want to limit this event to local creators and comics and pop culture enthusiasts who have interesting items from their personal collections that they are willing to sell and self-produced comics and related products. People who are purchasing space are encouraged not only to bring comics but any items falling under the pop culture umbrella. That could be toys, games, music, movies and more.

Since this event is so close to Halloween don’t be afraid to come in costume. Trick or treating will be part of our advertising for this event, please consider bringing a treat of some sort for the kids (candy, button, stickers, comics etc..).

We think this will be a fun event for everyone involved and if it is successful we’d like to make it something we do few times a year.

Thanks! I look forward to bringing back some of the “old school!”

– Shelton Drum
