This has been a crappy week for blogging (excepting of course Rich's excellent weekly column), but the Heroes staff got hit hard this week by some sort of wild gypsy caravan of illnesses. Poor Shelton got not much of a post-sale rest, with the store understaffed pretty much all week.
But dry those sniffly noses! I wanted to write before I posted this week's Hotline, to announce that our next big event is the Charlotte Minicon, coming up on January 17, 2009! That's a little over a month from now, so be sure and save that date. Shelton started the Charlotte Minicon way back in 1977; this year it'll be taking place again in the Palmer Building at Fireman's Hall, located right down the street from our store at the corner of East 7th and East 5th streets.
After HeroesCon and Free Comic Book Day, this is the biggest event of the year for us. In the next week or so we'll be announcing a guest list; we're just waiting for a few more names to confirm before we announce them. Rest assured we'll announce those names here on the blog and on the Heroes Hotline first! Stay tuned!
