Heroes Con Leftovers

Here’s all the pics taken and stolen that weren’t quite good enough for my Heroes Con wrap-up. Lick it up, suckers.


20 Dollars For Two Sandwiches & Water? A Heroes Con Reflection

L to R: Josh Latta and Rashy Rabbit

Greetings pals, comic nerds or people just googling Heroes Con hoping to find their name.  Welcome to my annual Heroes Con wrap-up extravaganza.  Ugh. I hate the word ‘annual.’ It always reminds me of  non-cannon comics filled with shitty art  that costs more.  It’s not everyday I can make a reference like that, in fact, it’s only 3 days a year when I can, and it’s at Heroes Con, America’s favorite comic book convention.

NEW Batman Movie Sketches

I don’t know if you all have heard, but there is a new Batman movie coming out this summer.  Yeah, I know. It’s all, like, on the hush-hush n’ junk.

To celebrate, I sketched all the zany mainstays of the next vehicle. I am pretty stoked, natch, and you should be too. I will be selling these sketches and many, many more at America’s favorite comic book convention, Heroes Con!

Heroes Con N’ Redskin Rashy

Heroes Con is a mere three days away. I better start packin’! Before I do though, I thought I’d share a most excellent review of Rashy Rabbit’s latest adventure, “Redskin Rashy” by my pal Shannon Smith at File Under Other.

(click on the page above to see that, I am in fact, a genius.)

Thanks Shannon, without your support, I woulda long given up on this racket, I’m sure.

So, who’s gonna be in Charlotte this weekend?

You and you?

…Not him?

Well then, let’s kick it at HEROES CONVENTION!

I’ll be with more talented artist in Indie Island, with my latest comic Redskin Rashy and the New Avatards! book in tow. (brought to you by Wide Awake Press.)

So, if you wanna hang out, drink overpriced beer behind a folding table, then let’s do this up right.

Don’t let the name fool you. Yes, super heroes are well represented at this convention sure, but as Shannon pointed out in his blog, there will be plenty for the rest of us hipster snobs that wouldn’t touch  cape with a ten-foot pole.

Thanks again, Shannon, and I’m sorry you won’t be there this year.

So, uh come by and say “HI!”and I’ll give you something neat*.

See ya in a few, true believers!

* Our ideas of neat may vary.


Heroes Convention June 19-21

Hey Y’all! Got any nerdy summer plans?  Well, you do now, sucker!

Come one, come all to the greatest comic convention this side of the Mason-Dixon, Heroes Convention Or Heroes Con, if you prefer. Take a peek at the guests that are gonna be there, but be forewarned. You best be on the toilet, ‘cos you are gonna shit.

Most importantly, come out  and see my me n’ my pals, Brad McGinty, J.Chris Campbell, Rob Ullman and Sally Bloodbath in Indie Island. We’ll all have new comics, dry goods and sundries for you to purchase.

Like what you ask?

Well, I for one, will have not one, not three but TWO NEW BOOKS from Wide Awake Press.

Rejected by life and love, Rashy Rabbit turns to the life of a hippie nomad along with his friend Jimmy, drinking dumpster wine and traveling aimlessly. When a crash sends him whirling into a boob and tomahawk infested adventure with an unexpected twist.

Ever fancy yourself to be a rock star? How about a cowgirl or a dinosaur? The cyber world is now just as important as the real world, so why not let your avatar represent the real you? These are some examples of how the artistic talent of Josh Latta has encapsulated the true essence of people, and transformed them into wild and wonderful things

HEROES CONVENTION was founded in 1982 by Shelton Drum, owner of Charlotte’s Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find comics shop. Since then the convention has become famous for its comics-first and family-friendly atmosphere, where fans can mingle directly with professionals and exhibitors. Boasting an incredible guest list built mainly on reputation and goodwill, HeroesCon is known nationwide as a “must” on the summer schedule, drawing fans, exhibitors, and creators from every region of the country to the Charlotte Convention Center.

So, will I see you there?
