  • HEROES CON and the Ringo!

    This coming weekend is the HEROES CONVENTION in Charlotte, NC! With a line up such has never been seen outside a mega-show like Comicon International. Darwyn Cooke is a special guest, so I’m hoping they made shirt with his art on it. I’m going to be there Saturday and Sunday, mostly at whatever table I’m put, but also…

    At the HERO INITIATIVE booth, where we have a big gang-signing for the What If? featuring Mike Wieringo’s final work. On Saturday 3:00-4:00 will be all of these contributors: Richard Case, Todd Dezago, Cully Hamner, Stuart Immonen, Barry Kitson, Nathan Massengill, Jeff Parker, Val Staples, Mark Waid,and Matt Wieringo. On Sunday, that line up minus Stuart will be there from 3:30 to 4:30. We look forward to seeing you at the booth, and the sales of the book go to a great cause.

    As you see, Mike’s brother Matt will be there, which leads into the next big announcement…

    Matt Wieringo has created a scholarship in his brother’s name! The RINGO will be connected to the Savannah College of Art and Design, helping some prospective cartoonist cover costs in the Sequential Art program there. Read the full press release here at Chapel Hill Comics’ site.

    It’s going to be a big weekend, I look forward to meeting you there.

    Jeff Parker is a modern-day Robin Hood. He stole my money and gave it to Matt Wieringo and the Hero Initiative.
