Photos From HeroesCon

Here, finally, are my photos from HeroesCon. As I said, I didn't take very many. Here are the best ones.

Me holding the beautifully-lettered sign made by Kris Black for me when he picked me up at the airport:

That was taken in my very sweet hotel room at the Hilton.

Me and Robert Kirkman:

Do I look like I'm running on two hours of sleep? I think I do.

And here I am with the Chapman brothers and the beloved Homestar puppet:

This is a photo I snapped from my seat at the Collaboration in Comics panel. In this photo you'll see, from closest to furthest, Matt Fraction, Darwyn Cooke, Cliff Chiang, Barry Kitson (mostly hidden) and Jimmy Palmiotti. Pretty all-star.

Buffy artist Georges Jeanty does a sketch for my pal Tiina.

Benito Cereno, Nate Bellegarde (sketching Two Face for me!), Darkseid, and Mister Miracle (passed out).

Me and 3/5 of the Dollar Bin crew (Brian, Tre and Adam) at the after-party):

Here are some photos of the Heroes Aren't Hard to Find comic shop in Charlotte, which put on the event. This is the afterparty. This shop was completely amazing. I work at an amazing comic shop, so I am not easily impressed by other shops, but this one is rad:

They run all the wires from the computers and stuff through those giant Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus statues. Isn't that awesome?! (oh wait, you can't see Spider-Man in either of these photos...well...he's there...fighting Doctor Octopus).

Outside at the party:

It was a great time!

You're pretty much Top Nerd around here, now.

Hi. Just discovered your blog. Had no idea it existed until I was checking out the coast website this morning. Really cool.

We are both Haligonians. Nice to see there is more than one comics fan blogger in the city.

I write about comics on my own blog from time to time. Also write about lots of other things going on in my life. Check it out if you want at

Loved how you disected that Martian Manhunter story last week. Very funny.

All the best.

Every picture that's ever been posted of you is so much better than the cartoon in your header. You should photoshop it out and replace it with that first picture of you. It shouldn't come as a surprise to a readers how cute you are.

Oh my stars and garters! You are way to cute for words. I havent felt this way about some ive never met since i fell for Rogue back in junior high.

I'm glad you are blissfully engaged and straight. Helps me put to bed my fantasies of moving to Halifax and getting to know you at the shop.

Hi Rachelle,

I really, really enjoy your writing about comics, yet I do not want to make out with you whatsoever.

Do you think that dude from the Invincible Super Blog gets as many marriage proposals as you do?


Chris Sims said...


No he does not.

Dang. Tells you what: It's a crude new banner for you (I don't have PhotoShop or anything). I'll post it on my blog and you can check it out there.
