Hey Everyone! As most of you know, your three amigos will be descending to Charlotte to attend the fantastic Heroes Con. For David and Jason, this will be the third time in four years. For Vince, this will be his virgin voyage (be gentle!). We’re road tripping down to the show, which means lots of video and audio shenanigans. Rest assured, we’ll share plenty with you on this site and on the podcast feed. And we’ll have a lot more stuff (think of it as a weekend-in-the-life of the EOC Trio) for our Patreon Patrons.
As a thank you to Shelton Drum, Rico Renzi and Andy Mansell — three of Heroes’ key organizers — we’re moderating three panels this year. If you’re planning on being at the show, it would mean a TON to have you participate. If not, take look at the details and by all means send along your thoughts on topics or questions you would want to hear us discuss if you were attending. Thanks!

MASTERING COMICS MERCHANDISING
Sunday, June 18th @ 12:00 PM
With interests in comics and comics’ culture reaching new heights, and the convention scene exploding, many of the industry’s creators have turned to merchandising their art and ideas to create a broader, more resilient income stream.
