"There's no other show where we could be welcomed like that with open arms", says Bob Almond, the organization's founder and director, "the community trusts and respects Shelton and his staff and the family-friendly, southern charm, mom & pop atmosphere adds a unique flavor that you simply can't find anywhere else!"
"The Heroes Convention collects more Inkwell Awards members than any other venue including for this year ambassadors Ethan Van Sciver, Adam Hughes, Mark Brooks, Cully Hamner and J. David Spurlock, various contributors and volunteers, former committee members Tim Townsend and Nathan Massengill, and most of our present committee team," Bob continued. "And let's not forget Ms. Inkwell, our lovely spokesmodel, who will be portrayed by model Haley Greenleaf from Wilson, NC! We will be set up in Artists Alley and have for sale our annual 2012 Donation Drive book with a striking Mike McKone Ms. Inkwell cover, as well as previous donation books, our best-selling Joe Sinnott Inking Challenge book, prints, t-shirts and various donated items, all for our ongoing fundraising efforts to continue our operations, philanthropic programs and mission to promote and educate about the art form of inking. There will also be a raffle for Marvel Herc original art by Neil Edwards and Scott Hanna who signed it."
"We're pumped about wrapping up what was a truly effective season thanks to a worthy and dedicated team," said Bob. "We have exciting projects already in the works for the new season and I will be thrilled to announce those after the Heroes Con celebration and subsequent short breather."
