If I told you HeroesCon 2017 was a great time that had to be seen to be believed I’d be underselling it. By now you’ve heard our recap. You know what our adventure to Charlotte, in Charlotte, and our way back from Charlotte was like. And I can’t wait to do it again next year.
Shelton, Rico, and everyone involved in putting on the convention do an amazing job of keeping things running like a well-oiled machine. There’s a reason why this show is talked about fondly.
As I stated on our content to Patrons and the podcast, this wasn’t a convention where I was shopping for art. That wasn’t the plan, it just short of happened. And I have no complaints. But I did come home with some: Manhunter by J Gonzo, Mr. Monster by Trav Hart, Mr. Monster by Karl Slominski, Mr. Monster by Kelly Williams, and two gifts from John ‘Monsta’ Cardinal – Kevin Matchstick and Vigilante.
While I didn’t come home with a lot of art, I did come home with a bit of paper. Much to Vince’s glee. Here’s the list, which includes the paper I bought at the Antique Mall on the trip down:
- E-Man #3 (Modern Comics), 3-7, 10-13, 25 (First Comics)
- Grendel #1-14
- Grendel Tales: Four Devils, One Hell #1-5
- Grendel Tales: The Devil May Come #2-5
- Grendel Tales: Devils and Deaths #1
- Grendel Tales: The Devil’s Apprentice #1-3
- Grendel Tales: Homecoming #1-3
- Grendel Tales: Devil’s Choices #1-4
- Grendel Tales: Devil’s Hammer #1-3
- Grendel Tales: The Devil in Our Midst #1-5

I think the only things that were cover price were Tarantula and Star Trek Cats. Almost everything was a quarter with a few things bought for fifty cents. The Cosmic Odyssey mini was $10 and the Omnibus was $35.
I’m already working on my game plan for 2018. Hope to see you there.
