FRIDAY by Scott Perrett Day one of Heroes Con! This was my first time at Heroes Con so I decided to do things a bit differently than most conventions I go to. Typically, I'll dig through old toys and hit $1 boxes, and maybe wind up at a panel. I usually don't go into Artists Alley much and when I do, I'm already out of money. This time, however, I spent most of my time in Artists Alley. I met and got autographs from a ton of awesome artists like Mike Zeck, John Beatty, Bob Mcleod and Evan Dorkin, who drew an awesome Milk & Cheese in the hardcover book I bought. My wife and I were able to get a few comics triple signed by Joe Quinones, Chip Zdarsky, Jason Latour, Robbie Rodriguez and Rico Renzi, who was kind enough to meet with me on his break from running the con. Many of the artists charge very little to nothing for their autographs. Some, like Geof Darrow, ask for a donation to a charity of their choice. The most anyone was asking was $5 and some of them were having raffles to win free signed prints with each autograph purchase, which is where I got the Mike Zeck GI Joe print.
It seems like an eternity when we first got wind of the Legacy figures from Funko. One of the most anticipated lines was announced and no, it was not you Game of Thrones but instead it was Firefly! Funko has finally delivered on that promise to get these out and they look exhilarating!
HeroesCon is a little more than a month away, and Heroes Aren't Hard To Find Warehouse Manager Seth Peagler graciously agreed to answer some questions about it to give you a heads up about one of the southeast's largest comic conventions.
