$_57Want to win a pair of high-heel shoes pre-worn and signed by John Barrowman?

You know him as Captain Jack Harkness on Doctor Who & Torchwood. You know him as Merlyn the Dark Archer on Arrow. You obviously know television & film legend John Barrowman as a lot of things, but did you know he once taught a woman how to walk in high heels? That’s right! At this year’s 2014 NC Comicon, during a Q&A panel with John and his sister, author Carol Barrowman, an audience member asked them how to walk in high heels. The woman was not wearing heels that day, so John was kind and affable enough to tell her to wear heels to his panel the following day, and to bring HIM some high heels to wear as well. She did, and the result was hysterically amazing. You can watch the whole exchange on YouTube.

It received a standing ovation, and after the event was over John and his sister Carole Barrowman were kind enough to sign the very heels he wore and donate them to be auctioned off for charity. They are available for bidding on EBay and all profits go to Sojourner Family Peace Center in Milwaukee. The Family Peace Center is supported by Carole Barrowman, and was hand-picked specifically by her to receive the entire winning bid.

So get to EBay right now and bid on the one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime memorabilia that is John Barrowman’s convention high heels. It’s the Christmas present that no one can top!

WE DID IT. And we owe it all to you. A huge and heartfelt thank you to all the fans, guests, vendors and volunteers for making 2014 the biggest, best and greatest NC Comicon ever. Tommy, Alan and the entire NC Comicon crew are dead-set on making 2015 even better. For starters, check out a sneak peak at the guest list: Cliff Chiang (Wonder Woman), Michael Avon Oeming (Powers), Charles Adlard (the Walking Dead). HOLY WHAT? And that’s just scratching the surface! The NC Comicon team is already hard at work to make sure the traffic flow and overall experience of the show is even more audience-friendly and easy to navigate. How’s that possible, you ask? How about the fact that we’ll have access to the Durham Civic Center (the Armory) – located across the street from the convention center – all weekend long? The city has even agreed to shut down the street between the buildings to make for a more safe convention environment. DURHAM IS OURS!

We’re your hometown show, and we can’t thank you enough for the kind words, accolades and incredible support. You helped make the 2014 NC Comicon the best weekend ever, and we look forward to doing it again with you in 2015. Tables and tickets will go on sale early in the year. Please purchase your tickets before the actual show either online or at one of the family friendly comic book stores soon to be listed on this site. We don’t want anyone to be disappointed at not getting into the show the day they desire, but tickets DO sell out.  Purchase your tickets early, sit back, read comics and relax!

Start gearing up, start making your want-lists, start crafting your cosplay, and start getting monumentally excited because the NC COMICON returns NOV 13-15, 2015! Tell all your friends in the multiverse, because we look forward to seeing you IN 2015!
