HEROESCON :: PostCon Wrapup To Come!
Okay I've spent most of the day answering a TON of e-mail and checking out the TON of Twitter posts and retweets and so forth regarding the show. I have to say that, while we're all ridiculously tired, and I can barely stand up from 4 days of walking back and forth over 100,000 square feet of concrete floor, we're incredibly encouraged and enervated at the very VERY warm and congratulatory messages we're getting. By all accounts so far HeroesCon 09 was a huge success, which makes all the hard work over the last few months worth it!
I'll be posting a short series of photo collections and reports over the next few days, but in the meantime I wanted to say thanks to everyone who came this year, from fans to dealers to pros! HeroesCon runs 100% on the support of our community of family and friends, and believe me we appreciate it.
UNRELATED--there was a problem last week with our server which has prevented us from being able to upload this Wednesday's New Releases--we're working on it and hopefully will get them up tomorrow. Sorry for any inconvenience!
I'll leave you today with this photo in our store of employee Matt Knapik and X-Men writer Chris Claremont. Note that Matt is holding a copy of X-Men #4, the first issue after Claremont left the book back in the 90's. It's a nerd joke, but everyone around in the store was cracking up at this. Matt went on to explain the current X-Men continuity to Chris, which was twice as hilarious. If you've met Matt, you know how entertaining his explaining of anything can be, so watching him explain the X-Men to probably the best-known X-writer ever was pretty hysterical to the rest of us.
