2022 Comicon Season

Post by shevek »

It's time for the Comicon season once again...and Heroineburgh is ready with our first appearance of the year this weekend at Steel City Con in Monroeville, PA (Apr 8-10). We'll have our booth in the main vendors hall as usual.

Here is the approximate actress schedule for the weekend:

Friday April 8
Pagliaccia (Gabriel) Noon - 3 pm

Saturday April 9
Cybrina (Heather) 3 - 6 pm
Darbouka (Tiffany) All day (she's selling her fantasy novels and 'Celtic Goth' music CDs at our table)

Sunday April 10
Mesmera (Stacy) Noon - 2 pm at booth. 1-2 pm on the judges panel for the kids' cosplay contest.
Serpenta (Jessica) Noon - 3 pm at booth. 2-5 pm on the judges panel for the teens' and adults' cosplay contest.


Other than Chevy Chase... the beautiful female celebs in attendance will include Christie Brinkley, Beverly D'Angelo, Christina Ricci, Tuesday Knight, Brooke Bundy, Marisol Nichols, Amanda Wyss, Dana Barron & Heather Thomas.

Marvin and I will be at our booth all three days (although I'll be leaving early on Friday about 4 pm).
Hope to see you there if you're around the area!

And to get you back in the Comicon Season mood, here's a lovely video from Bridget, who plays Arctica, walking around
at last year's Terrificon in Connecticut. Give her some likes. She'll be back there this year again, as well as at 3 Rivers Con in Pittsburgh and possibly some other events. Heroines Assemble!



Here's Pagliaccia (Gabriel) from Day 1 of Steel City Con.

Solo shots of Heather as Cybrina (queen of cyberspace) at the Con. She was getting accustomed to the idea of walking around in a tight costume, and looked great. Heather is an awesome sci-fi fan - we had an hour-long discussion about The Expanse!

Steel City Con finished up yesterday with two of our actresses - Mesmera and Serpenta - participating in the cosplay contest
judges' panel.

Stacy (Mesmera) judged the kids' costumes. She was in her "Belle" cosplay at the time, but then changed into the Mesmera outfit
for the final three hours of the Con.

Meanwhile, our new actress Jessica (Serpenta) took the stage and did a fantastic job judging the teens and adults. The adult costumes were amazing - a few of them took 300 hours to create! The only Western superhero entries were Lady Venom and Black Manta - every other character was either from manga or video games.

We'll be back at the next Steel City in August, but in the meantime, we've got Cons coming up in Beckley WV (Cause-A-Con),
downtown Pittsburgh (3 Rivers Con), Altoona PA (Sci-Vi Valley), Dayton OH (Gem City Con) and Uncasville CT (Terrificon).
And it looks like we might add a trip to Columbus OH in late May - should know more on that one asap!

The Comicsburgh crew had an exciting weekend in Beckley WV at Causeacon! We participated in two panels, added two new stores (Fama's Comics in Beckley and Third Floor Comics in Nitro) and everyone at our table pretty much sold out of the books we brought.
One guy spent $64 to pick up two copies of every book on the table [one to keep signed, and one to read, apparently].

Lots of new fans made in southern West Virginia for Heroineburgh! (pictured: Marvin of The Edge and Grant of Beowulf).

One of the coolest things was that we had two groups of young cosplaying Con-goers (about a dozen total) show up to our second panel, which was a half-hour showing of Episode 20. Afterwards, all the kids who had seen the episode came back to our table and they bought two thumb drives containing all of Heroineburgh Season 1. True "superfans"!

(pictured below: Marvin of The Edge and Grant of Beowulf chilling at our table. I took the photo.)

and P.S. We are definitely headed out to Columbus Fanboy Expo in the last weekend of May. One of our characters will join the Comicsburgh crew, and we'll find out whom soon. See you in Central Ohio!

A very successful Free Comic Book Day yesterday at New Dimension Comics in Homestead, PA.

Making a strong appearance was the beautiful Vendetta - aka Mauricia, the creator of MusicMakerComix.
Everyone from the "Comicsburgh" crew (including Mauricia, and Marvin of The Edge) did quite well, with multiple interested fans
buying up a package of all seven comics that we had available!

What a fun day yesterday! It was the inaugural Greater Pittsburgh Festival of Books (aka Book Fest), and the "Comicsburgh" group was only one of three tables of comics-related material who were given room to take part. (The other two were New Dimension Comics, who sell Heroineburgh at their shops; and Chutz-Pow! featuring Marcel Walker who does some of our back cover pinups).

Heroineburgh, The Edge (Marvin) and Beowulf (Grant) were joined by our new friend D.P. (Theme of Thieves) and by our lovely Heroineburgh actress Tiffany, who has her own dark historical fantasy novels (she plays Darbouka in our series). We were set up in an upscale mall food court in a complex called Bakery Square, along with about a dozen other book tables. Not only was the book crowd interested, but we caught the attention of many random shoppers coming from the restaurant gallery area. Lots of brand new fans were made, while we tapped a whole new audience.

We recently had "Comicsburgh" team shirts made. Here is Tiffany modeling one in a restroom selfie at the Book Fest.

Then later that night, we hosted a concert across town for a goth band from New York City, and Christina's band opened the show.
As usual, she did an awesome job as the lead singer, and was dressed in one of her most gorgeous outfits which exuded a "1980s" vibe: red top with ruffles and a black cinching belt, very tight shiny black pants, and sexy stiletto heels. For those of you who didn't know yet, Christina is Poderosa (the Latina Powergirl) in our series. She's always on point!

Next Comicon up for Heroineburgh and the Comicsburgh crew is this weekend May 27-29 - Columbus Fanboy Expo downtown at that city's convention center. While we're in town, we're going to try to visit the three comic shops which have carried our comics, and also
the Billy Ireland Museum of comic strip art (which contains our strips from the local newspaper in their archives)..

Guest superheroine for the weekend will be the scorching Sasaya, portraying Hellfyra as she does in the series (Episodes 17 and 19 so far, but she'll be in Episode 21 upcoming). She's in the photo below, on the right.

Hellfyra will be available to sign comics, stickers, posters and publicity photos (we have a couple dozen copies of the photo below from Episode 19, free to be signed with any comic or T-shirt purchase) for all three days. Not sure how many on this forum are in Ohio, but if you're located nearby, please come and visit us at the Con.

Other attractions include Lee Majors, Tia Carrere and Dirk Benedict, and a variety of other panels. I'll post some Con photos in a few days.

Just got back from the debut of Heroineburgh (and Comicsburgh) at Columbus Fanboy Expo. Unfortunately Tia Carrere cancelled. But other than Lee Majors and Dirk Benedict, there were plenty of other celebs: Kane Hodder (the original Jason), Tiffany, all three stars of CHiPs (I was this close to Erik Estrada!), four voice actors from TMNT, three voice actors from Avatar the Last Airbender, the lead voice actress from Encanto, Dave Foley from Kids in the Hall, and quite a few more.

It was a bit under-attended, but we made the best of it, making contacts with regional comics creators such as Columbus' own Mason Easley (got his four-issue run of 'Legend of Azure') and Dayton's Chris Vickers (got his three-issue run of an excellent Fem Force style 'good girl' superheroine comic called 'Red White and Blue' - see the cover of issue #2 below. Chris is a bona fide AC Comics fan!).

We met such consummate comics pros as Tom Nguyen (Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Dynamite etc) and Frank Fosco (Image, etc). In addition to checking on the three Columbus stores which already stock our comic, we added two more: Laughing Ogre and Capital City - thanks so much to Trish and Wes for their help there. So we have very thorough coverage in Columbus..and some direct sales to con-goers and vendors as well.

A time crunch and a huge rain deluge prevented us from having time to visit the Billy Ireland Museum. But we did have an excellent stay in German Village with two amazing restaurants (German and Asian Fusion) on both nights, and on Saturday night I saw a transcendent electronic music concert in Franklinton under the stars, with about 40 other well-informed hipsters.

Here are some of the adventures of our actress Sasaya, who was quite magnificent on the Con floor as Hellfyra, mistress of the flames.

Doctor John Hammond from Jurassic Park 'spared no expense' to meet Hellfyra!

Sasaya looked amazing, and took a fair amount of photos with various Con attendees. We asked them politely to hashtag 'Heroineburgh' if they post it - hopefully some of them will!

Did you know that Columbus has a statue dedicated to Arnold Schwarzenegger? (Apparently he won his very first bodybuilding contest there.) We didn't either. But when we randomly came upon this statue, Sasaya decided to pose in front of it in her civilian attire. A lot of people had the same idea - there was a line of tourists waiting to do the same!

Here is the very fun comic 'Red White and Blue', which is about three beautiful super-powered young ladies in tight spandex costumes saving the day and having various adventures fighting supervillains and scary monsters. The creator is Dayton Ohio's Chris Vickers, and we had a discussion about our mutual enjoyment of FemForce and AC Comics. The comic is advertised as 'good girl art' and it delivers. Here's the cover of Issue #2 - the girls are on a swimsuit shoot when they are attacked from the sea!

On to Three Rivers Comicon next weekend at the Downtown Convention Center in Pittsburgh. We'll have six actresses with us - three on Saturday and three on Sunday. Plenty of opportunities for photos and signed comics and publicity shots!

3 Rivers Comicon 2022 kicked off in grand style at the Downtown Pittsburgh Convention Center today.

It was a very well-attended first day, with lots of great special guests including comics legend Howard Chaykin, Roland Mann of the esteemed Silverline Comics, Dan Mendoza of Zombie Tramp, and many more.

Participaing in a "Script to Store" panel about the making and marketing of comic books were Marvin Wynn (The Edge), Mauricia Malveaux (Music Maker Comix, aka Vendetta of Heroineburgh), Ted Sikora (Bloom, Tap Dance Killer & Hero Tomorrow Comics),
Caleb Thusat (Village Comics), Vito Delsante (Stray) and Roland Mann of Silverline. The panel was also moderated by Jeremiah, who
played a "hipster thief" in Episode 19 of Heroineburgh.

Over at the Comicsburgh / Heroineburgh table, Marvin from The Edge and Mauricia of MusicMaker sold a good amount of books, and many new fans picked up Heroineburgh Comics issues #1 and #2.

We were able to capture many lovely photos of the three Heroineburgh actresses who made themselves available for autographs
and photo opportunities. Here's the powerful triumvirate of Dark Spectra (Erika), Vendetta (Mauricia) and Arctica (Bridget).

Day 2 of 3 Rivers Comicon brought just as many new customers to the Comicsburgh table to check out Heroineburgh, The Edge,
and Tiffany Apan (her dark historical fantasy novel).

The Con featured many great booths from important indie comics companies such as Aftershock, Source Point, Silverline
and Hero Tomorrow. We met a couple of comics artists who might have a future in doing some interior art for Heroineburgh - we'll see how they stack up.

We had an extra-powerful contingent of heroines and villainesses for Day 2, and this was very well noticed by the Comicon crowd, as many of them stopped to take pictures of our group of lovely actresses. Hopefully some of the photos will end up with the "Heroineburgh" hashtag so we can find them on FB and IG.

Here's our photo session from Day 2.

From left to right: Stellara (Ruby), Darbouka (Tiffany), Lunessa (Indigo), and Serpenta (Jessica).
They had a lot of fun posing for this group shot - it was hard to pick which image to use!

Also, I put together a nice transformation sequence from 3 Rivers Comicon using Tiffany's photos from when she was putting on the costume and a shot from the Heroineburgh publicity shoot.

First, she puts on her tight form-fitting black costume underneath. Then she dons the cape and cloak, And finally, she adds the black mask and gloves and boots, completing her look as the mysterious Darbouka, mistress of sonic waves.

Can we present a Muslim female character who is strong, confident and modern, yet undeniably beautiful and sexy? You bet we can!

Agreed! Being from Indonesia, Jess has a gorgeous accent, and will be doing a lot of hissssing and rolling her "r"s in her dialogue
during her first shoot coming up in July. We have added a cute gold "snake bracelet" to her costume, which she can unravel and
manipulate to demonstrate her reptilian control. And as I mentioned, we'll be adding elements that will allow her to embody the spirit of the Naga snake goddess. She really is like a Filipino Television, Power Rangers-styled supervillainess come to life, from the annals of our friend Red Five!

So, by your command, here are more Serpenta photos.

Great sexy covers, Batgirl1969! I suggest you do Black Cat. We need more representation for her tight costume and fur collars.
I see a lot less of Felicia than I do of Selene and Harley at Comicons.
Literaly saw about ten Mary Janes at the Con this past weekend, several Spider-Gwens, a Starlight, and even a Silver Sable (she was a gray-haired woman in her 60s, and looked amazing. Wish I'd taken a photo). But no Black Cats at all.

So, that's a good segue to mention that Comicsburgh (Heroineburgh, The Edge, Beowulf, and MusicMaker) was vending this past weekend in Altoona PA at Sci-Fi Valley Con, a mid-size pop-culture convention which had a ton of great vendors, some good voice actor guests, and a nice lineup of panels (including a showing of Heroineburgh Episode 20 on Saturday at 2 pm. We had six very attentive viewers who stayed all the way through the half-hour episode and asked some great questions!).

On Friday evening, we met the cosplay repair table called Snowtiger Designs, run by an amazing woman named Krissy.
We hired her to spruce up the "V" logo of our superheroine Vendetta (played by Mauricia, who is also the writer of MusicMaker).
So on Friday, she sprayed the logo with a base of gold paint, and then "fixed" the paint into place the following day with a special
coat of fixer. We're posting the great "logo reveal" on Youtube, but here are a couple of photos of Vendetta with her new shiny logo,
and then posing near the Con entrance.

Lots of comic book sales were made (Mauricia sold out of her book, and Marvin of The Edge sold out of two of his four issues).
Vendetta also signed several publicity photos for fans who purchased the book.

We had a great time at Sci-Fi Valley, and we'll be back next year..possibly arriving one day earlier so that we can spend some time at the DelGrosso Amusement Park (owned and operated by the proprietors of DelGrosso spaghetti sauce!).

Next up in Con Land: Waynesburg PA July 9; Dayton Ohio July 23-24; and then Terrificon in Connecticut! (attention IMSancho)

Re: 2022 Comicon Season

If I make it down there it will be Friday. Next month I’m starting a job that requires work on Saturday and Sunday. I’ve been hoping to get this kind of job for 3 1/2 years so I’m not complaining. My life is going through some pretty big changes now, mostly good ones.
