The Heroes Convention kicked off in Charlotte, North Carolina on Friday, June 19, 2009 and for those of us who've been to more than a few of them over the last 26 years, the organizers brought back an old perk - letting the advanced ticket holders in a half hour before the general public.
Despite the rush to take in all that the event had to offer, I managed to snap a few photos as I strolled around the floor of the Charlotte Convention Center on day one.
The first shot is a generic view of the floor, followed by the DC Comics booth, the table for Amelia Rules creator Jimmy Gownley, and two of the big guests Frank Cho & Chris Claremont.
I am not the photographer that many of you are, and my focus was a bit split, so be glad that you at least get these quick glimpses into Heroes Con's inaugural day.
I will be back with a few photos for Saturday shortly.
