CHARLOTTE MINICON :: Guest List Doubles! Snazzy Postcard To Commemorate!

Yes, it's true! In fact, we'd already sent this SWEET little postcard off to the printer when Ethan Van Sciver threw his hat in the ring! A little quick editing, and now Ethan, famed artist of Green Lantern and Superman Batman, among many others, joins fellow newcomers J. Chris Campbell (Zig Zag, Wide Awake Press) and Rob Ullman (Project: Superior, Grand Gestures) on our Charlotte Minicon Guest List! They'll be joining a ton of dealers from around the Southeast, not to mention a crack squad of hand-picked Heroes employees, and YOU! The particulars, once more:

DATE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 2008
TIME: 11AM - 5PM
COST: Suggested donation of $3 or more to National MS Society
PLACE: PALMER BUILDING AT FIREMAN'S HALL, which is located at the corner of E. 5th and E. 7th Streets, about a half-mile from our store. For more information feel free to give us a call at 704.375.7463, or e-mail us directly.

And in case you don't know, the Charlotte Minicon was founded in 1977 by Shelton Drum, who at the time was selling comics at flea markets. The Minicon was the seed that led not only to the creation of our store in 1980, but also the mighty HeroesCon, which you might have heard something about on this site before. Last year saw the return of the once-yearly Minicon, in honor of its 30th anniversary. Join us on January 19 to ring in the start of its fourth decade!

That is a rockin' postcard. I'm excited about the mini-con. I had a lot of fun at the one last year.

Thanks Shawn! For the postcard, I mean. I missed last year's minicon, so this'll be my first. I hear (mostly from the staff, oddly) that it was really fun.

I missed last year's too. This year's is on my 30th birthday. Everyone can buy me stuff, please. I need a FN+ or better copy of DD#1 and VF/NM or better Grendel #2. Or a NM+ or better What If... #26. Any takers? :)
