Once considered a symbol of nerdiness, comic books are cooler than ever. Comic book superheroes break records at the box office and on television, where TV’s geeks are its biggest stars and every series from “Supernatural” to “Doctor Who” wants (and gets) the comic book treatment.
The popularity of comic book conventions has followed suit, with record-breaking attendance. The Heroes Convention (aka HeroesCon) – taking place this weekend at the Charlotte Convention Center – is now 32 years old, and has expanded from 100,000 square feet in 2012 to 200,000 square feet last year.
This year’s HeroesCon is packed with events, panels, vendors and more. Check out some of the weekend activities here:
