Heroes Con 2010 Fancy Sketch Comic

Thanks to all the North Carolinian Fancy Bastards that came out to say hi at Heroes Con this year! I had a great time. Special thanks to Evan and Paul for being quality room mates for the weekend and to FB’s John, Amber and Mike (plus Mrs. Mike and daughter Mike) for the FB Karaokee Tweetup. That was a blast. All thanks be to vengeful Odin that everyonecould sing well (in our group at least). At one point the bouncer called out Mike for his Edward shirt and went off on a 5 minute rant about how EJO was thte REAL Edward. Good times.

If you enjoy HE and and would like to show your support for the comic or The Experiment, please consider getting a book or shirt in the store or making a donation.

This particular comic is a true story, except that everything I said to Scot after the first panel happened in my head and later in conversation with Evan. Last night I was at an after party and the comic shop that puts on Heroes Con (Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC) that Scott Adsit was also attending. I really wanted to show him this comic (and make sure it didn’t piss him off) but the opportunity never arose. At one point he was seeking out the Joss Whedon Astonishing X-Men trade but couldn’t find it. Considering the person and the subject matter, my geek-stinct (different from geek-stink) told me to assist, but again I didn’t want to impose. It seems like the comic is imposition enough. Also I was scared that I would refer to he and his female companion as “NERDS!” refer to the lack of air conditioning in the store as “…A DEALBREAKER LADIES!” or blurt out something like “YA JUST GOT HORNBERGER’d!” for absolutely no reason.

  1. I had such an amazing time at Heroes Con and after! I know there's photographic evidence of my tipsy singing somewhere, but I'm a little afraid to see it in the broad light of day. I'm amazed you tolerated my fangirling for so long. Mike really got a lot of attention for that shirt everywhere we went in Charlotte on Saturday. Everyone (except for those three Twilight fans) loved it!

    (P.S. It's "hippiefemme" because I seem to have a knack for creating names that can be spelled a few hundred ways. One of my old names was "cheredemoiselle".)

  2. At Dragoncon last year, I was talking to the guy at the table next to Darwyn Cooke's (because I was too intimidated to talk to Darwyn Cooke directly), when Scott Adsit came over with a couple of sketchbooks. Apparently he's been collecting League of Extraordinary Gentlemen sketches from a different artists, and wanted Darwyn to do one.

    Guys, I think I am more jealous of Scott Adsit's sketchbook than I am of his job. There was an Adam Hughes drawing in there that kind of blew my mind.

    The funny part, though was after Scott left, when Darwyn was sitting there going "I don't actually read LXG. Wait, do I not charge him for this, because he's famous?"

    Moral of this story: hang out in the artists' alley at cons, even if you're too intimidated to talk to anyone.

    • Someone mentioned this sketchbook at Heroes Con. I guess he was filling it up at that show too. He ran the art auction and hung out all night talking comics at the after party. He seems like a real fan.
