HERO Initiative Brings Herb Trimpe to MegaCon


Hero Initiative, the non-profit organization that aids comic veterans in medical and financial need, will bring original Wolverine artist Herb Trimpe to the Orlando MegaCon from March 21-23 at the Orange County Convention center in Orlando, Fla. The charity's booth #733 represents the only convention appearance Trimpe will make at the show. He'll be joined by fan-favorite Wolverine and Incredible Hulk artist Adam Kubert, who will make an appearance Saturday from 1230-130 p.m at the booth. Kubert will be doing only two convention sketches all weekend, and they'll be done at the Hero booth for Hero Initiative. Fans can enter a raffle to get the right to claim one of the two $250 sketches. In addition, artist George Pérez will be at his own booth, #417 on the floor, signing books and doing sketches for benefit of Hero Initiative all weekend. The Hero booth will also offer HERO's convention exclusives like the Archie: 50 Times an American Icon softcover and ACTOR Comics Presents, regularly $10 each, now just $1 each, while supplies last, one of each per customer, at the con only. Fans who eat at Uno Chicago Grill at 8250 International Dr., just down the street from the convention center, can show a MegaCon badge or wristband, and Uno will donate 20% of your bill back to the organization. A number of creators will be raising money for the Hero Initiative cause all weekend as well! Check out the list below and throw a couple bucks in the jar for Hero when they autograph your books.
