HEROES CONVENTION was founded in 1982 by Shelton Drum, owner of Charlotte's Heroes Aren't Hard To Find comics shop. Since then the convention has become famous for its comics-first and family-friendly atmosphere, where fans can mingle directly with professionals and exhibitors. Boasting an incredible guest list built mainly on reputation and goodwill, HeroesCon is known nationwide as a "must" on the summer schedule, drawing fans, exhibitors, and creators from every region of the country to the Charlotte Convention Center.
HeroesCon 2013 will be June 7-9, 2013! We are still working on confirming guests and updating our website. In the meantime, we've left up some of the latest info on our 2012 show, which was the largest we'd ever organized! Thanks to everyone who made HeroesCon 2012 such an unqualified success!
