HeroesCon: Ladies Turn

Three awesome costumes. The ladies were well represented this year with the cool and excellent costumes. The Question was particularly striking and really well timed.

HeroesCon Stuff

Iron Man with two cute kids.

The little girl was so cute.
The big secret is this is a middle aged man in a very hot outfit, but he was a hit with the kids in a sweet homemade contest.

Batman, Bane, and Huntress.

Superman and a really authentic looking Lex Luthor.

These are just a taste of some of the pics I took this year. I have more to come over the next few days.

Day One: HeroesCon 2009

I went to HeroesCon today in Charlotte. Will return tomorrow as well. The Convention was in a different area of the Charlotte Convention Center this year and that was just the start of a weird vibe this year. The other came at the DC Universe Panel. I left after just about ten minutes. I really think not having Dan Didio there was what hurt. He is animated and Satler was not. I was bored and headed back to the floor. I think knowing I could not buy things like I wanted was another thing that hurt my enjoyment.
Had my friend not accompanied me I would have been so bummed. It helped a great deal this year having him around to joke about things. Kelly Yates was awesome to talk to while we wandered. He had some cool Dr. Who cards and other artwork that just rocked. There were some slutty Batgirls floating around. One young boy was dressed as the classic Nova. Saw a few cool kids dressed up. One African-American Captain America that I was unable to nail down for a pic, I hope he is there tomorrow.
I got a Fozzie Bear Head Sketch. The BOOM Studios company had some nice HeroesCon exclusive Covers. There was really not any true deals this year. Prices were stable and the same across the board. Artist have some deals, but not many. I did spy a really cool MJ print I think I will buy tomorrow.
Was just different. I figure I will try some panels again. The Yu Gi Oh regional tournament will be there tomorrow as well. I have always wanted to see the game as it should be played. I did snag some fifty cent books. I also was able to get some signatures. Mark Waid was really nice to talk with along with Renae DeLiz and Ray Dillon. Well, I need rest and some energy restored. Will post about tomorrow when it comes.

Straight from the DC Blog comes a suggested list of the Earth Representatives in the Black Lantern Corps. Freaky. A question, if Batman is displaced in time and not really dead, then how can he be a Black Lantern? Could this be how Red Robin figures it out? OK, that is two questions. The Convention hits soon. I will try my best to post pics from the days I go the night after. Low budget this year, still, hoping to find some cool stuff in my smaller price ranges.

Aren't they just too cute?

I really do not have a post. Found this somewhere online, forgot where, but I think it is kind of cute. I went to the shop before the Convention. Peddling stuff tomorrow to get just a bit more money for the Convention. So enjoy the happy couple above.

I am kind of excited about this.......

I love my super heroines. I think that this is one of the most gorgeous images I have seen around in a while. The simplicity is what makes it work so well. Yes I realize Rich beat me to showing this from the DC Blog, but I am still excited about a new Batgirl, and yes I believe it will be a new Batgirl. I am looking for either Stephanie Brown or as a Dark Horse Misfit. Why ditch the Birds of Prey and have Misfit in the Battle of the Cowl books, if she was being thrown away. This bring Babs back to strong mentor status and gives us an interesting Batgirl.

It is a post.......

You should be reading ECHO. They have trades out. You should read. That is all.

I need to post more, Really I do.

I know, since I was forced from being a reviewer, I have been a slacker. I really just have not felt the desire right now. To me the industry is fast out pricing itself. I also have read five novels in the month of May. I do recommend the Novels that Greg Rucka wrote for his character of Tara Chace. One is called A GENTLEMAN'S GAME and the sequel is PRIVATE WARS. Both are really good reads. They also helped me to find the first QUEEN & COUNTRY graphic novel. I hope to get some more at the Convention.

Yes, I get to go to HeroesCon. I have employment and I sold some stuff little by little and built a bit of savings and I used some gifted money. I get to go. That is where I snagged the image here, it was on the Blog about the Con. I hope to just find some cool buys and to get a Vampi Kat sketch by Jeanty.

I do want to figure some stuff to jabber about more. Maybe if I can buy comics on a more regular basis I will be inspired to review some books. I really need to sort through some more books before the Con as well.

OK, time to do some more catching up online.
