Coming to the Charlotte Convention Center:

Sunday, November 7: 10AM-4PM
This show will feature 80,000 Sq Ft of the BEST COMIC BOOK DEALERS in the country, as well as a curated Artist Alley hosting some of the industry’s greatest!
This event will be a Comic-Book Collector’s DREAM!! A room FILLED with comic books from every generation of the medium!
This show is a “GIANT-SIZE” version of our long-running CHARLOTTE MINI-CON, not to be confused with the MUCH LARGER Heroes Convention. As a smaller show, we will not be hosting panels or additional programming during this event. We will return with incredible panels and additional programming for the 40th Anniversary Heroes Convention, returning next June 2022.
The GIANT-SIZE CHARLOTTE MINI-CON is all about the COMIC-BOOKS! We hope you will join us for this GIANT-SIZE “old-school” Comic-Convention!
