    About This Convention
    Indy PopCon is a popular culture convention that will be coming to downtown Indianapolis in late May of 2014. Formed by a group of (mostly) Hoosiers with over 50 years of con experience, PopCon was created to give the Midwest a new kind of convention. Many popular conventions are hyper-focused and specific to certain genres. To get the most out of those conventions, you are likely already embedded within those specific cultures.

    We’re a little bit different. Our goals for Indy PopCon are two-fold:

    1. Make a Convention Accessible to All

    Rather than specialize in one form of pop culture or another, we are dedicating resources to bringing in all aspects of popular culture. Our hope is that those who attend for one or two of our themes will discover new geeky, nerdy, and interesting hobbies and fun that they otherwise may not have been exposed to.

    2. Make a Convention About YOU!

    The landscape of popular culture is changing. Previously, one would need to be discovered in order to make a career in comics, art, entertainment, movies, and gaming. But with the success of funding platforms like Kickstarter and self-publishing platforms like YouTube, you are in control. You can choose what you want to publish, and what you like. You have the power to shape our popular culture!

    We will invite the trail-blazers of this new pop culture phenomenon. YouTube stars, podcasters, web comic artists, webmasters, and more will be invited to share and grow their craft and also to help guide and train the next generation. Panels and workshops will be made available for those who have a dream and the passion to create, but just need a little guidance. Our hope is that Indy PopCon 2015 will feature new internet superstars who attended PopCon 2014!

    HeroesCon 2012 Welcomes Neal Adams and More

    HeroesCon is exactly one month away and guests are still being announced. This isn’t even the last guest list update before the show! We’re bursting at the seams! Get your tickets today! See the full guest list on the website!

    We are happy to welcome Neal Adams back to HeroesCon this June 22-24! Thanks to everyone who attended last year and met Neal on his first visit to HeroesCon; you must have made a great impression! Neal is a legend in the comic book industry as much for his artwork as he is for crusading for the rights of fellow creators and striking out on his own when such a thing was unheard of. Neal’s career spans decades, from classic runs on characters like X-Men, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, and Batman to his current Batman: Odyssey. Be on the lookout for The First X-Men coming soon from Neal and writer (and fellow HeroesCon 2012 guest) Christos Gage! One of Jared Moraitis’ BeastWreck Shirts & Stuff was recently featured on an episode of NBC’s Community. Jared makes great shirts and if you buy two shirts at HeroesCon this year one of them should say BeastWreck on it! The other one will of course say HeroesCon or Indie Island.

    Michel Fiffe is the creator of the comic series, Zegas, which he began publishing in 2011 as Copra Press. On top of writing and drawing Zegas, Fiffe has immersed himself in various comics projects such as editing the indie anthology Twisted Savage Dragon Funnies and conducting in-depth creator interviews for several institutions including The Comics Journal.

    When he’s not working in animation, Dan Duncan is making comics. You’ve seen his art on the latest incarnation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and on the beautifully painted covers of Xenoholics. Catch this guy before he and his crew are super famous and don’t have time for you. Ah, he’d make time anyway, Dan is a super nice guy.

    Artist Tom Lyle is also returning to HeroesCon next month. Tom’s illustrated numerous books like Spider-man, Robin, Punisher and Batman. He’s also an instructor at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), who he’ll be setting up with again this year.

    Jeffrey Brown had a recent hit with Darth Vader and Son, and is well known for other comics like The Incredible Change-Bots, Little Things, Clumsy, Unlikely and many more.

    Tom Bancroft is a veteran artist in animation, storyboards and comics. He’s done design work for lots of big Disney films like Aladdin, Lion King and Mulan, and illustrated books like Opposite Forces and the art instruction book Creating Characters With Personality.

    June Brigman and Roy Richardson are the married creators behind the past fifteen years of Brenda Starr. June is also known for her work on titles like Power Pack, Supergirl and an adaptation of the novel Black Beauty with Roy. Dennis Calero has been a go-to artist for many companies over the years. In addition to work on popular properties like 28 Days Later: The Aftermath, Calero’s also illustrated books like X-men: Noir, X-factor and Cowboys & Aliens. Michael Dolce is a comics writer who has worked on books like Grimm Fairy Tales, Descendant and Sire.

    Zealand “Steve” Jones has been a character designer on animated shows such as Batman: Brave and The Bold, Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond, Superman, and the New Adventures of Batman. He also worked on Teen Titans, Legion of Superheroes, JL: The New Frontier DTV, JL: Crisis on 2 Earths DTV, Men In Black and G I Joe: Renegades. Currently , he is working on the new CG TMNT cartoon at Nickelodeon Studios. His pals Dan Panosianand Tim Townsend told him HeroesCon was a great show so he decided to make his first trip to the Queen City to check it out!

    Drew Moss is currently drawing a story for Outlaw Territory Volume 3. He has also worked on Zombies VS Robots and The Baku.

    Ethan Van Sciver has been a mainstay at DC for years now. He’s illustrated titles like Green Lantern, Green Lantern: Rebirth, Flash: Rebirth and most recently the new 52 title Fury of Firestorm.

    David Antoine Williams made quite an impression last year at his first ever appearance at HeroesCon! See the image below for one of the reasons why! David has been keeping busy with covers for G.I. Joe, Cobra and tons of other stuff since we saw him last. Don’t miss this chance to meet and chat with the one and only “Brohawk”!
