Hero Initiative travels to Orlando, Floridas MegaCon
Guest appearances by Joe Benitez, George Perez, and Steve Perry
Grandstand Sports and Memorabilia silent auction and more!
Angeles, CA: Hero Initiative will be traveling to MegaCon, the southeast’s
largest comic book, science fiction/fantasy, anime, toys and gaming convention.
The event will take place March 12-14 at the Orange County Convention Center in
Orlando, Florida. You can purchase tickets directly by logging onto:
We have a whole lot going on!
First up, traveling along with us
from Los Angeles is artist Joe Benitez, known for The Darkness, Batman,
and Justice League of America! Stop by the booth and pick up an original
sketch by Benitez. All proceeds benefit Hero Initiative.
Make sure you
come back, because George Pérez, one of the most influential artists of all
time, will be at the Hero booth. He’ll be sketching as well, and this is one you
don’t want to pass up.
On Friday from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., a special
11-man signing of Hero’s The Wolverine 100 Project will take place!
Contributors Joe Benitez, Jim Calafiore, Mike Choi, Darwyn Cooke, Joe Jusko,
Andy Smith, Bill Tucci, Mike McKone, Jimmy Palmiotti, Mike Perkins, and Brandon
Peterson will be at the booth exclusively signing Hero's recent release. Get
them while they are available, and get them signed by our team!
that’s not all! Florida resident and acclaimed writer Steve Perry will be
visiting the Hero booth as well. Perry is best known as one of the original
writers of the Thundercats and Silverhawks TV shows, and
Timespirits comics. Perry was diagnosed with cancer in February, 2009, and
being the single father of a 9-year-old son, he struggled to make ends meet
while battling his severe illness. After being homelessness, having no work and
living in his car with his son, Hero Initiative is proud to have help Perry pull
him through this difficult time. He will be giving back to say “thanks” by
stopping by. Thank you, Steve!
Lastly, Grandstand Sports & Memorabilia
has generously donated approximately 40 items that will be available through a
silent auction. Items include a Hugh Jackman autographed Wolverine 8x10 Photo,
Johnny Depp autographed 8x10 Photo, Elijah Wood autographed Frodo 8x10 Photo,
Robert Downey Jr. & Jeff Bridges Dual Signed Iron Man 8x10 Photo and a
Spider-Man limited edition lithograph with actual film cel, to name a few. The
items will be on display in the lobby and at the Hero booth. Part of the
proceeds will go to Hero Initiative.
