Donny Cates @ HeroesCon 2017
This year marked the 35th Anniversary of HeroesCon in Charlotte North Carolina. This is your favorite creator’s favorite convention. Devoid of all the Hollywood spectacle that has become typical of comic book conventions, HeroesCon is about the comics and those who create them, collect them and sell them.
Every year it seems as though there is one artist/writer who has the convention floor abuzz. This year was no different. With an amazing Chris Visions drawn cover to his Babyteeth #1 variant being sold exclusively at the con, prominently being featured by both Skybound and Aftershock’s respective corporate booths, long autograph lines and being all over every vendor’s back wall, Donny Cates was that guy this year.
I was fortunate enough to get to sit down with Donny and talk about how life has changed since the success of God Country, what he has coming next, and the multitude of Babyteeth variants.
So please excuse the video quality as we threw this together last second when the opportunity presented itself. Comment below or on the video if you would like to see more of these types of videos in the future from CBSI. Finally, a special thank you to Donny Cates for taking the time and talking to me before the con got too crazy.
