The Heroes Doc Banner

Guys, there’s a geek-tastic documentary in the works that could really use your support on Kickstarter! The Heroes Doc by Jere Thomas and Matthew Tyndall is the story of the 30th anniversary of the Heroes Convention, hosted by Shelton Drum, owner of the legendary comic book shop Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find.

The Heroes Doc tells the story of how the “Emerald City of the East” convention started in a hotel conference room and has grown to be one of the largest independent comic book conventions in the nation. The documentary tells the complete story of the man, the store, the convention, and all the people that make it possible.

Jere and Matt have been following the Heroes team since last August; learning the day-to-day operations, watching as they prepare for special events like Free Comic Book Day, and looking at all of the behind-the scenes-action as they get ready for this year’s convention.

They covered the 30th HeroesCon extensively and scored interviewed with Marv Wolfman, the legend behind Blade, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and The New Teen Titans. The Heroes Doc will also feature interviews with Louise Simonson (Power Pack, X-Factor, Superman: The Man of Steel, Steel) and Walter Simonson (Manhunter, Fantastic Four, Thor) and… STAN “THE MAN” LEE!

You can also expect interviews and appearances with Bill Willingham (Fables) Adam Hughes, and Jonathan Hickman (Fantastic Four). Perhaps the most interesting element of the entire documentary is an in-depth discussion with Matt Fraction (The Immortal Iron Fist, The Invincible Iron Man) who actually got his start in comics by working at Drum’s Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find shop.

Cully Hamner and Karl Story as well as Phil Noto and comic book royalty, Stephanie Buscema – granddaughter of John Buscema, and grand-niece of Sal Buscema!

The guys have been filming this story for almost a year now and they could really use your help in making their dream into a reality. Jere and Matt need $10,000, which should cover costs for editing and scoring the documentary; as well as, visual effects for the finished film. The guys currently have $4,262 pledged of a $10,000 goal on Kickstarter – and they’ve got 14 days to go. If you love comic books and documentaries, should you really help support this film. I mean, how rare is it that you get all of these titans of the comic book industry in one place to talk shop?

If you haven’t supported a Kickstarter project before, the awesome thing about it is you get cool, one-of-a-kind prizes and rewards for helping create amazing projects. Jere and Matt have teamed up with the Heroes crew and artists from the convention to give away tickets to next year’s convention, production credit for the movie, and original art from major comic artist/writers that you will not find anywhere else!

Whether you pledge $5 or $5,000, please visit their Kickstarter page and make a donation to help fund an awesome, endlessly geeky, documentary. If you have any questions tweet the guys at @HeroesDoc or shoot an email to Producer@heroesdoc.com.
