Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find starts the New Year right! We are proud to announce that the Charlotte Minicon will be Saturday, January 22, 2011 from 11 am to 5 pm. The show will be at the Palmer Building at Fireman’s Hall which is just half a mile from our store. We love having our Minicon at this cozy location and it is well worth the $3 admission price just to come and check out this cool, old building. If you are not familiar with the location, fear not, we will put up signs along 7th St. to help direct you to the event!
Our awesome guest list includes Rich Barrett (Nathan Sorry), Chris Brunner (Boondock Saints, Loose Ends), J. Chris Campbell (Zig Zag), Sanford Greene (1000), Dustin Harbin (Diary Comics #1), Jason Latour (Noche Roja, Scalped, Wolverine), Budd Root (Cavewoman), Bridgit Scheide (Kindle), Andy Smith (X-Men Forever 2) and Chrissie Zullo (Fables #100).
We are also pleased to announce our very special guest Chris Stevens! Stevens popped up on the radar doing illustrations for RPG’s and working with UDON Entertainment on numerous projects. He then made a splash in the world of sequential art with a pair of short stories that appeared in Image’s Popgun 2 and 3 anthology volumes. The shorts evolved into the new series, Skullkickers from Image. Stevens is the cover artist for the series and issue #1 has gone to a 3rd printing (that’s a lot of covers)! Stevens was a very popular guest at HeroesCon 2010, creating this gorgeous Captain America for our annual Art Auction. His work so impressed Adam Hughes that he had to go home with the piece! Special thanks go out to the one and only Patrick Sun for capturing an image of Cap before Hughes snatched it up. Please give Stevens a warm Charlotte welcome when you stop by his table!
In addition to our special guests there will be a room full of dealers from all over the Southeast selling their comic wares. Come by to dig for comics both new and old as well as other comic related items like toys! As a special bonus treat the Charlotte Minicon will feature pony rides (weather permitting)! All you have to do is donate at least $3 to the Latta Plantation Equestrian Center. Funds raised will go to erect a covered area at the center. I can’t think of another convention that can boast that they have pony rides!
We hope to see you Saturday, January 22, 2011 at this incredibly fun, family-friendly event!

Jim Zubkavich & Edwin Huang, creators of Skullkickers, sign and sketch at Larry’s Comics Xmas party on Friday Dec 17th! If you can’t make out it that night, be sure to catch them at the Woburn Warehouse Show on Saturday Dec. 18th.
66 Lakeview Ave, Lowell, MA 01850
Red-hot Image comics’ Skullkickers creators Jim Zubkavich and Edwin Huang are the special guests at this month’s Woburn Comic Book Show, and they’re looking for artwork from a New England fan to publish in their book!
Zubkavich and Huang will be the guests on Saturday, December 18th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Best Western Hotel in Woburn. Admission to the show is free! The show is sponsored by Larry’s Wonderful World of Comics in Lowell and features dozens of local comic book dealers and distributors.
Besides signing autographs and chatting it up with fellow comic fans, Zubkavich and Huang will be looking for a piece of pin-up art featuring his characters to spotlight in issue 5 of his ongoing Image comic.
So would-be artists, this is your chance at the big time. Bring along your artwork for Zubkavich and Huang to pore over, and if your offering kicks skulls, you could see your piece making it into the pages of one of the hottest titles on the comic racks these days!
Skullkickers has been described by some as The Hangover meets Dungeons & Dragons, and has already met with critical praise, selling out its first issue with ease.
Straight from Zubkavich’s website, Skullkickers is a fantasy-comedy comic series featuring two mercenaries entangled in a high-class assassination plot, and nothing – not werewolves, skeletons or black magic – will stop them from getting paid.
If you love fantasy, action-comedy, a touch of black-hearted violence and movies like Army of Darkness, then Skullkickers is the book for you!
Directions to the show:
Best Western New Englander
1 RAININ RD, WOBURN, MA right off rt 93 S toward Boston
Take exit 36 to merge onto Montvale Ave toward Woburn
