Cherry Capital Comic Con

May 23 – 25, 2014

C4 is Northern Michigan’s largest comic book and pop entertainment expo. Located at the scenic Grand Traverse Resort, C4 is Northern Michigan’s perfect gathering of comic book creators, exhibitors, and fans.
Cherry Capital Comic Con (C4) is a comic book convention that celebrates the medium of comics, rather than a specific genre. At C4, all comics are equal, as are their creators and their fans. The organizers of C4 intend to prove to the world that comic conventions – just like comic fans and the comics, themselves – don’t have to be “this” or “that”. They can just be what they are…which is simply “cool”.

Connect with your favorite creators at a variety of panels. Meet up and coming talent in Artist’s Alley. Find great deals on comics and collectible merchandise at our gathering of exhibitors. Participate in our costume contest, with categories for both adults and children.

  • Quick Tip- If you will be traveling to Denver and want to have a play day in the Rockies rent a car that can take inclines, an eco-car will not do well. Also Breckenridge summer park may not be open until the week after the Con, I’m sure they have no clue how many hearts they are breaking

June 20 – 22, 2014

HEROES CONVENTION was founded in 1982 by Shelton Drum, owner of Charlotte’s Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find comics shop. Since then the convention has become famous for its comics-first and family-friendly atmosphere, where fans can mingle directly with professionals and exhibitors. Boasting an incredible guest list built mainly on reputation and goodwill, HeroesCon is known nationwide as a “must” on the summer schedule, drawing fans, exhibitors, and creators from every region of the country to the Charlotte Convention Center.

HeroesCon 2014 will be held on June 20-22, 2014! We are still working on confirming guests and updating our website. In the meantime, we’ve left up some of the latest info on our 2013 show, which was the largest we’d ever organized! Thanks to everyone who made HeroesCon 2013 such an unqualified success!

Advance tickets are sold as memberships at different rates depending the date you purchase them buy.  These include a four day pass some snacks, all panels demonstrations and a several other things (there are some exceptions).

Quick Tip- Purchasing the advanced memberships will not keep you from waiting in line to get your pass. Don’t wear your costume the same day you will be waiting in line for registration if you plan on going for more than one day.Regular tickets are sold at the door; it will cost a little more and will take more time.

Area hotels range from $79-$489 a night.

All of the host hotels are sold out, we even looked the day booking started and they sold out by noon! However some overflow hotels still have room, these hotels range between $129 and $229.

If you don’t mind short drive, maybe 15-20 minutes you can stay a little further out and save a good deal. As long as you can find Peachtree St. you’ll be fine, there a lot of restaurants that are pretty great.
