Heroes Con post con wrap up

30 years! Can you believe it? Shelton Drum and the crew of Heroes Aren't Hard To Find celebrated 30 years of Heroes Con this past weekend, a feat rarely seen these days, and luckily I've been able to experience 20 years with them.
I started my Heroes Con adventures in 1992 as a bright eyed teenager ready to take the comics world by storm.... oh, how little we know when we are young. I did get my first portfolio review there and it did sting quite a bit, but every year I went back more determined to make it and one day I did.
That's what makes Heroes a special show, not only to me, but because it's more of an artists show and a family show. For the fan inside us all the show has a little bit of everything from comics, to toys, statues, and cosplay has really grown there. Artist at the show are more than approachable and everyone seems to give a little more of themselves at Heroes, it's like a family reunion...with all the cool people you want in your family.
So next year take some time to visit, or re-visit Heroes Con, it's one of the highlights of my year and I do believe it will become one for you as well.
