Just in: I'll be at HeroesCon in Charlotte, North Carolina on June 30-July 2, 2006, along with a bunch of the AvengersAssemble! Web site contributors and longtime associates, and a huge and growing list of amazing comics guests:
In 2001, we were official guests of this con, hosting Marvel Jeopardy and other events. I'm not sure at the moment if we'll be official guests or not, this time around, given the record-breaking number of bigtime guests, this year, but we'll definitely be having a Jeopardy tournament, either officially or unofficially!
And I'm leaning toward making this year's tournaments into some sort of "MARVEL vs. DC" format. It would shake things up and bring some new enthusiasm (and new contestants and fans) to the thing, I think. Suggestions of how to do this are welcome!

The HeroesCon schedule was posted today. Their guest list is astounding, but they've always been more of a "get your books signed and dig through the long boxes" convention than a "lots of discussion panels" convention, and that's reflected here:
Ah well. I'll be there, Thursday night-Saturday afternoon, with a handful of the Jarvis-Heads. Since the con actually closes down about 6:30 pm each day, we'll probably be haunting the local bars n' grills, holding impromptu Marvel vs DC Jeopardy tourneys and talking comics.
Give me a shout if you're planning to attend! We'd love to meet ya.
