I spent two fantastic days at Heroes Con 2019. Unfortunately, it seems there's a contingent of attendees out to ruin the experience for several creators. It apparently is happening to several artists that are openly LGBTQIA+.
I decided to Cosplay again this year for HeroesCon. If you've never gone to a convention in costume, you should. I'm not saying that you should compete in the costume contest.

The first day of a large show like HeroesCon is never very crowded. This allows for fans to explore the hall and share more quality time with creators. This is also when dealers have the most stock. I got into the hall shortly after opening. The only thing really lacking today was a large number
As our local big event, HeroesCon, nears, we all get curious about what it took to get to the point of putting on quite possibly the largest convention dedicated primarilly to comics. Fortunately, Matt Starnes of the Guardians of the Geekery podcast interviewed Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find Owner Shelton Drum just days before the
