I love variety in my comics reading, and one of my favorite webcomics/trade paperbacks is the Vattu series from creator Evan Dahm, who I talk with during this 206th episode of my Wayne’s Comics Podcast. The first volume, called Vattu: the Name & the Mark, got me hooked when I met Evan at this year’s Heroes Con in North Carolina. He’s now in the middle of a current Kickstarter.com project for his second book, Vattu: the Sword & the Sacrament.

This past weekend, the 29th annual Heroes Convention was held in Charlotte, North Carolina. I was lucky enough to attend, and boy am I tired of hoofing it. When I was not jibber jabbering to comic creators, and getting off the elevator on the wrong floor. I DID snap some pictures, so take the jump Spoilerites to see what you missed!

We somehow missed yesterday’s Art Appreciation Moment of the Day – well, we know how and why we missed it, the bigger question for you to ponder is what we were doing that was more important (Hint: The answer may surprise you in the coming months). To make it up to you, we’re not featuring just one drawing, but a slew of sketches whipped up by one of our favorite artists, Gene Gonzales, from his recent HeroesCon appearance.
This weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, Archie creators, writers, and editors will be at Heroes Con 2010 doing signings and sketches. Archie Comics sent Major Spoilers a rundown of the Artist’s Alley and word on a contest the company is running at the show.
One of my favorite aspects of the comic book convention is walking around Artist’s Alley and getting original sketchs and art from the creators present.Â At Heroes Con, Roger Langridge whipped up this piece, and shared it with the world.
