Over this coming weekend, a comic convention called Heroes Con is being held at the Charlotte Convention Centre in Charlotte, NC. Amongst the guest list across the three-day event are several representatives for the Archie comic, and there’s a dedicated half to the panel for Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Universe and Mega Man with Paul Kaminski (editor), Ian Flynn (writer) and Tracy Yardley (artist). The official website has the specific schedule for the Archie panel;

Room 201
