CHARLOTTE MINICON :: January 17, 2009!

This Saturday is the 2009 Charlotte Minicon! Going on in the Palmer Building at Fireman's Hall (2601 E. 7th. St., click here for Google map). See below for details! This is one of the oldest 1-day conventions in the country, and with all the buzz this week over the hard-to-find Amazing Spider-Man #583 with the Obama backup story, attendance is sure to be through the roof! There'll be dealers from all over the Southeast, plus a bevy of awesome artists and writers:

Just added to the guest list of the 2009 Charlotte Minicon is Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 artist GEORGES JEANTY! Georges is an old friend of ours, and a regular guest at HeroesCon, so we're extra proud of how high his star has risen lately. If you've never met Georges (pronounced almost exactly how it looks, like GEORGE-ess), he's a super sweet guy, and is sure to be a popular guest at the show.

ALSO NEW to the list, and no less sweet, are good ole GREG ADAMS (Thunderbolts, Excalibur) and Charlotte local BUDDY PRINCE (Night). They join an existing guest list including:

CHRIS BRUNNER: Gotham Central, Loose Ends (forthcoming)

J. CHRIS CAMPBELL: Zig Zag, Project: Superior

IAN FLYNN: Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic X

JASON LATOUR: 24/7, The Expatriate, Loose Ends

BUDD ROOT: Cavewoman

ANDY SMITH: 52, Green Lantern

Add to that some of the biggest and best comics dealers from all over the Southeast, not to mention a huge number of fans, and you've got the Charlotte Minicon. Going on Saturday, January 17, from 11am to 5pm. Admission will be $2 per person, and the event will once again be held in the Palmer Building at Fireman's Hall: from our store, just head east on 7th Street until you get to your first light at 5th St. Fireman's Hall is on the left!

And before I forget, Ian Flynn informs us that he may have a ton of Sonic freebies available while supplies last, so be sure and bring your kids! If you have any questions, feel free to post in the Comments section below!
