This Sunday, January 20th, is the Charlotte Minicon, a one-day show first launched in 1977 by my alma mater Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find. I’ll be tabling along with pros from both the indie worlds (like pals Rob Ullman, J. Chris Campbell, and Rich Barrett) and superhero worlds (like Jason Latour, Lee Weeks, and Brian Stelfreeze). Plus there’ll be tons of exhibitors selling books, comics, toys, t-shirts, probably a ton of stuff I’m not even thinking about.
This year Heroes owner Shelton Drum is expanding the space (and cost) of putting on this free event by moving into the large Grady Cole Center. I love that Shelton puts these on basically just to do it, so I hope you’ll think about attending if you’re anywhere near the Charlotte area. In order to encourage you, I’m going to give away 50 prints that day, the two pictured above, absolutely free, one per family. All you have to do to get one is go to this link and follow the instructions to “Like” the Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find page and register for the event via Eventbrite. Then email me at dustyATdharbinDOTcom–just include your name and MINICON somewhere in the subject line or body. I’ll add you to my list, and then give the prints away to the first 50 people (one per person, per family) on the list who come to my table (Table 118) at the minicon! Totally free, no catch, just be sure and Like the Heroes page and/or register via Eventbrite and email me.
BUT I will certainly not turn your money away if you want to buy other stuff! Believe me I’ll have tons of it there, and if I run out I’ll give you a good deal on Rob Ullman. The show opens to the public at 11am this Sunday, runs until 5, and is family-friendly and FREE so bring it!
