Circle June 19-21 on your calendars, gang -- DC NATION is making a stop at the Heroes Convention in Charlotte this year. Sadly -- or thankfully, for some -- I won't be there personally, but we'll have an impressive lineup of creators holding court at Shelton Drum's event, including Mark Bagley, Ivan Brandon, Bernard Chang, Cully Hamner, Scott Hampton, Adam Hughes, Jamal Igle, Georges Jeanty, Dustin Nguyen, Steve Niles, Phil Noto, George Perez, Stephane Roux, Brian Stelfreeze, Jen Van Meter and a ton more. Senior Story Editor Ian Sattler will also be the ringmaster for any and all panels, so make a point to stop in to hear the latest bits of DCU info. While you're there, make a point to stop by the DC booth to say hi and pick up some free swag. Free stuff is cool. It makes people happy.
