Its only a few weeks away after no shows for 2 years (unless you count the giant sized mini con in nov which most dont count). I am psyched. Been going ever year (of course with the exception of last 2 years) since I started to read comics again.

My budget usually has been $120 ($40 each day for older cheap comics, newer releases, toys for colelction and anything else that would cost money like autographs). This year budget is closer to $200 since plan on getting a few comics graded, one of which will pay the $5 for a witness (my amazing spider-man #365 as Bagley, Deflaco and Leonardi will be there. would get romita jr but he charges $20)

got my 3 day pass in advance (had it since before pandemic) so will take advantage of 30 min early let in (past would get first in line for someone popular or the scope out the floor...this year take care of cbcs first. since ive never done it at that convention so want to save time.

I will be there. I have been every year since 94. It's one of the best Cons in the eastern United States.

I (Conan) will be there. Steve Borock won't be at this show due to schedule conflicts for him. We'll have a booth and will be accepting consignment drop-offs of any slabbed books you'd like to consign. Please feel free to stop by and say hi!

Dropping off roughly 200 slabs with My Comic Shop the day before the show starts.

Still going through several short boxes of books to get organized for signings.

Usually Roy Thomas does ten signatures and lets people get back on the end of the line.

So far I have roughly 70-80 books for him.

If you want to find me on Saturday you know where I am going to be spending a lot of time.

good comic shop. Heres arent hard to find (I assume the shop you are talking about). Run it. First one since covid (unless you count the small one they did in nov)

its not too late. Buy your 3 day pass online now (if you were doing all 3 days). you get in 30 min early and free swag (a badge and a poster which I sometimes just use to get artists/writers to sign if I dont have anything to bring)

If not. warning. when you go. there will be two lines to get in (unless you show up after it starts). One line is for people with 1 day or regular 3 day passes. The other is for people who bought in advance. those are let in 30 min early.

Heroes con was the birthplace of Skottie Young's baby variants. He had worked on x-babies and was asked to do the badges for certain guests of x-babies. They became popular and being sold online. Marvel asked him to do variants of simular nature....rest is historu

I will be driving down to Charlotte on Thursday. You can pick up your advanced tickets at the convention center on Thurs so you don't have to wait until Friday. It should be a fun weekend.

I was hoping to be on the road a couple hours ago but I now have the car loaded up and will leave in the next few minutes.

About nine hours of driving to get to Charlotte.

not often you see an official drawing featuring both a marvel and dc character. but cool. I am debating do I get all attendees to sign it or just him (or anyone there who worked on thor and the new gods)

Don't know what Simonson charges for autographs but I will get that signed as well as my Thor 337.
