Coming off of I-77 and heading downtown on Saturday gave a really stunning view of Charlotte's downtown. The sky was dotted with puffy clouds and the skyscrapers were laid out almost artistically. I really wish I could have pulled over and gotten a shot.

I was headed to the Convention Center for this years iteration of Charlotte's Heroes Convention which I have been checking out out over the years as often as I could since the days when it was a few meeting rooms at the old Holiday Inn on Woodlawn.

This year, I didn't attend any of the panels as it took all of my time just to completely canvas the main show floor. My impression is that Guardians Of The Galaxy is a new hit with costumers, though there was no single theme for the majority of costumes. I think I did notice a bit of fall-off in the Frozen costumes since Amelia Con. Stan Lee was there for photo-shoots, but the line was so long that I didn't attempt to see him. There were plenty of other creators there as well, and I bought a number of indie books for myself and my nieces, more than I've scanned below.

Anyway, it's not a bad drive (I-77 seemed a little less pot-holed this time) and there's a reasonable nearby lot, so if you get the chance next year, I recommend you check it out.

    @Ted - I have stayed at the old Holiday Inn on Woodlawn many times. Years ago the Atrium was not part of the Hotel and you may be able to imagine that area was part of the parking lot. I of course never saw that, but my Dad stayed there before the Atrium was built and told me about it.
    I would always eat at the restaurant and have the prime rib, geez, I love prime rib, and they had some of the best.

    As for Stan Lee, I read somewhere, if you send him a plane ticket and $1000.00 he will show up at any book signing or whatever, even your kids birthday party if you wanted.
    Sounds sad but not really, What a great way to make extra money and travel in retirement.
