Well, I know most foiks here already know who everyone else here is based on their screen names, but I don't post that much so I am still in the dark. If anyone is planning to bring any art and wants to do a late night bit of show and tell after the obligatory dinners out and drinking email me at benno119@gmail.com and maybe we can put something together. I am bringing a few things and its always more fun to see stuff in person than online in my opinion. Benno

I wish I could be there Benno. I've never made it to Heroes but EVERYONE says this is the show to be at in regards to art and the lineup of guests this year looks incredible. I think this is going to have to become a priority to get to ASAP. I hope everyone has a great time and I can't wait to see pictures of all the great new art.

Can I ask a question of the veterans? If you had the rank the Cons for original art collectors, how would you rank them?

Heroes is #1 for me in terms of art. I have not been to SDCC so I cannot compare but I have been to Chicago, NYCC, Baltimore, Detroit, and it is my favorite (not to say the others are not good shows). The vibe at Heroes is so good and why I keep going back. Laid back and not chaotic like a lot of shows. Tons of artists and I have heard from several that they enjoy the  atmosphere and don't feel as rushed, etc. Heroes is on the short list of best cons for comic art IMHO.

when you say good for art - are there a lot of art vendors? (new york and san diego both have a lot) or is it mostly artist alley - modern art you are talking about?

Have you been to C2E2? That was pretty impressive when I went.

I'll be there getting commissions.  I don't really buy much published art.  Hope to cross paths with you, Benno.

Heroes is mainly artist alley. Not many of the big art dealers setup. I like Heroes the best as is a Comics only show.
