HeroesCon 2016 – Photo Gallery

HeroesCon has become a staple in the Southeast comic book community.  Now in its 34th year, HeroesCon continues to grow and expand into the premiere con for the comic book fan.  Breaking their attendance record again this year and expanding their space in the Charlotte Convention Center to include an area to showcase cosplay and a vintage arcade section courtesy of Abari, the HeroesCon team as again outdone themselves.

This year, Word of the Nerd was blessed with our first booth at HeroesCon which we geared around capturing the cosplayers in attendance.  We offered free green screen photos to anyone that stopped by our booth along with some other freebies.  Our event team was also fortunate enough to get interviews with many of the amazing guests including, Bob Camp, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Cullen Bunn, Jen Broomall and a variety of other indie writers and artists.  Make sure you visit the Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find website for other coverage of HeroesCon 2016 and upcoming news on next year’s event.

You can also check out the many interviews of guests we did while at HeroesCon over on our YouTube page.
