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 all over the world to the Charlotte Convention Center.

WILSON FISK BUILDS A BRAND-NEW EMPIRE! The KINGPIN has done bad things. Deplorable things. He has cheated the law. He has blackmailed rivals. He has killed. But that’s all in the past. The Kingpin is back in the city that he loves and ready to make his mark as a titan of legitimate industry, but needs to rekindle his public image. When Wilson Fisk makes disgraced journalist SARAH DEWEY an offer she can’t refuse, the spiraling saga of crime and betrayal begins anew. Don’t miss the start of Kingpin’s ongoing series, written by breakout writer MATTHEW ROSENBERG and illustrated in the heavy noir stylings of BEN TORRES, as Manhattan’s criminal mastermind returns to the Big Apple with honorable intentions, but no one in his circle remains pure on his climb back to the top.

GROUNDED! From the pages of Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket has found himself stuck in the LAST place he wants to be-the backwards, no-class, pit of a planet called Earth.

The author of the Origami Yoda series makes Guardians of the Galaxy characters Rocket and Groot the stars of the show in this illustrated first installment of a trilogy. The titular heroes—a raccoon and a tree man whose only utterance is “I am Groot”— escape a school of space piranhas only to crash-land on a planet that turns out to be one big strip mall. With their trusty sidekick Veronica, a talking tape dispenser, they sally forth and discover that this brave new world is full of bizarre and dangerous foes.
