This weekend, I made my way up to Charlotte, N.C., to catch up with my pals Johanna Draper Carlson and KC Carlson, who also drove down to attend the 35th Anniversary of the Charlotte MiniCon. I enjoyed attending the Minicon (seeing folks like the always photogenic and hilarious Dustin Harbin [yeah, I had to photograph him…again], as well as Jason Latour, Matt Wilson, Bridgit Scheide and Rich Barrett). Yet as I was in the middle of having fun, I realized I wanted to enjoy it as a consumer, not cover it as a journalist. So if you are looking for coverage of the Minicon, I highly recommend Johanna’s coverage over at Comics Worth Reading.
That being said, I could not go to Charlotte and not take some pictures. Despite the fact I have attended HeroesCon for the past several years, I have never shopped at the legendary retail store, Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find. Until this past Sunday. Here’s the evidence of my fun.
I did not take pictures of my purchases, but I was able to score copies of the first few issues of Terry Moore’s Rachel Rising, as well as X-9 Secret Agent Corrigan Volume 3 by Archie Goodwin and Al Williamson.
