Pat's 2005 Heroes Con Photo Album:

Heroes Con takes place in Charlotte, NC, usually on Father's Day weekendat the Charlotte Convention Center downtown, but this year it was a week after Father's Day weekend. Heroes Con is a nice friendly place to take the whole family to enjoy comics and card games for the most part. This year was a little different because of the DUB Automotive Lifestyle magazine hosting their own convention at the same timeframe in a different hall in the convention center, and they had their area rocking and booming. It was weird seeing those DUB attendees getting searched and having to deal with metal wands by security.

If you are into meeting some of the comic greats from the golden and silver age of comics, you'll always be surprised by who shows up at Heroes from year to year. I managed to fill in holes on my want list, as well as pick up some cheap, but interesting looking stuff. I only showed up for half of Saturday and most of Sunday, so I was busy rummaging through the long boxes of comics that my photo-taking was limited.

I mainly took photos of art pieces in the Charity Art Auction at the end of the Saturday of the convention. This year featured the art auction being held on Saturday night instead of Sunday afternoon. Here are just a lot of photos I did take just to capture the flavor of the convention.

The photos are either 600x800 (portrait) or 800x600 (landscape) in resolution. I apologize for some of the underexposed photos, or strangely lit photos, but I was playing around with the white balance my Canon S1 IS digital camera. Also, the charity art photos are dark due to the lighting conditions, and using a flash would have washed out the artwork, so I opted to not use flash, and just deal with underexposed photos.

If memory serves, the Adam Hughes painting of Sue Storm went for at least $4100!
