Hello Comicon Compadres,
With the 2010 Pittsburgh Comicon just about a month away, you can expect news updates coming fast and furious in the coming days.
I promised last week the return of a Comicon favorite, but heck I'm feeling generous, so how about I give you TWO.
Hot off his recent stunning issue of Jonah Hex, Shi creator and superstar artist and writer, BILLY TUCCI is back in the Burgh!!!
In fact Billy has graciously agreed to do the cover of our 2010 Program Book. (I'd tell you what his cover is going to be, but I like to have some secrets!!)
Also speaking of HOT, the internet was abuzz this past week with the news of Zenescope's new CHARMED comic based on the fan favorite TV show.
We are happy to announce that CHARMED artist, DAVE HOOVER will be at the 2010 Comicon Saturday and Sunday.
New to the show this year is media guest MARK TIERNO who appeared as the classic zombie, BEEF TREATS in George Romero's DAY OF THE DEAD.
