Heroes Con, June 16-18, 2017 Charlotte

I will be attending Heroes Con for the FIRST time this year.

The official HC site -


I will be seated in Artist's Alley  and will post the exact location as soon as I know.

I will be at the table at most of the show but I will update via Twitter a more exact schedule.



I will be signing books/comics/statues/etc at my table the whole show and free for the first 5 items. Then $1 a signature after that.

I charge $5 a signature for witnessed signatures.


I will be part of the DEADPOOL/HARLEY QUINN panel Friday at 3:30 PM in Room 208 - hosted by Jason Wood along with FABIEN NICIEZA (because I got nothing on Deadpool... sorry!).

AND I will be part of the MILKFED CRIMINAL MASTERMINDS panel Saturday at 2:30 PM in Room 208 - hosted by Lauren McCubbing and along with KELLY SUE DECONNICK, MATT FRACTION, CHIP ZDARSKY, LAUREN SANKOVITCH and KIT COX. Where I will be discussing some...



I will be taking a Pre-Show Commission List for Heroes starting Tuesday, June 6th at 6 PM Pacific Time.

At that time, send an email titled HEROES SKETCH, through my contact link at or to terry at terrydodsonart dot com (my usual web contact) letting me know the following information:


 9” x 12” or 11” x 14

I do the sketches on 

Color Canson Pastel paper

with Red Col Erase Pencil, Copic Warm Grey Pens, Black Markers, and Prismacolor White Pencil or Pro White

IF you want your sketch in your SKETCHBOOK, just gauge the size to the 9 x 12 or 11 x 14. However, I won't be able to do many as I won't have the SKETCHBOOK until I'm in Charlotte...

See below for sketch examples and visit my blog, Instagram, Deviant Art and Twitter for more examples.

I’m not taking Blank Cover Pre-Show requests, I will decide at the show if I’m going to be able to do any there.


A Single character and I decide if it needs a background but you are welcome to suggest.

I will do a full figure or 3/4 depending on what works best for the composition.

Be clear as to what version of the character you want.

And you can list a top 3 of if you want to.


As you will be picking this up in person from me at Heroes Con, I need this. To be fair, and for my sanity, and yours, I’m only taking requests from people actually attending Heroes Con.


-To be fair, and for my sanity, and yours, I’m only taking requests from people actually attending Heroes Con.

-I will take the first 25 COMMISSIONS requested via email after 6PM PST and then CLOSE the list. I will then pick the SUBJECT I want to draw. As I complete them, I will contact you to let you know your piece was chosen, it's done, and request a partial payment via Paypal ($100) to hold, and then remainder in CASH from you at the show at the time of pick up.

-Once I stop the list, I will announce it is CLOSED and then I will let the 25 know they are on the list. If you don’t hear within 24 hours of CLOSED then your request was not one of the first 25. I will continue picking sketches until the start of the show so everyone should know.

-FINALLY, this is the first time I’ve done this and I’m doing it because of the sheer number of requests and the fact that the show is only 3 days.

 -SO, not everyone will get a sketch and there will most likely be some confusion so read everything carefully and if you don’t hear from me with 24 hours of closing the list, you are NOT on the list of 25.

-If you do make the list of 25, you are NOT guaranteed a sketch, just that I’m choosing from those 25.

- It’s only when I email with the 2nd email and tell you your sketch is completed, request partial payment, then, you know, … it’s done :-)

I will do as many as possible!



I will be selling original art from Wonder Woman, RED ONE, Star Wars: Princess Leia #, X-Men, Catwoman, Songes/Muse, Avengers, Avenging Spider-Man, The Defenders, Uncanny X-Men,  and some BRAND NEW covers.


I will have a full selection of all my prints and postcards (my ECCC print, SD 2015, Red One, Masquerade, Rose City, Down Under, New York, San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, Paris and Seattle) for sale.


I will have my New Sketchbook TERRY DODSON'S BOMBSHELLS BOOK TWO


Plus remaining copies of my MASQUERADE sketchbook and the RED ONE Book 1 available.

See you there!



  1. If I make the list, would it be cool to send the sketchbook to you early, like this week?

    1. If you make the list with a sketchbook, I will draw the sketch in the sketchbook at the show as I imagine I will do a good sketch a day at the show.
