ATTENTION PITT-CON COMMANDOS,
This is our first update of the New Year and it is a big one. We just
added around 20 new guests to the website, and we'll have plenty more
in the coming days. This update, however, has a something for
everyone including superstar Comic guests, our first Star Wars
announcement of 2008 and a heap of horror for you zombifiles.
First Up is our favorite dynamic duo of......
• JIM BALENT and HOLLY G! of Broadsword Comics. There are no two
comic book guests more devoted to their fans than Holly and Jim. If
you've never met them in person, this IS your opportunity.
Secondly we are happy to have back in the burgh,
• MICHAEL TURNER* and ASPEN ENTERTAINMENT - This fan favorite artist
draws a crowd wherever he goes and we are always glad to have him back.
• Star Wars Fans can look forward to the ultimate Star Wars villain,
Darth Vader making his way to the Steel City in April, as
DAVID PROWSE* - The man behind the mask appears at Comicon 2008.
and Horror Fans can look forward to:
• KEN FOREE of DAWN OF THE DEAD and more recently, THE DEVIL REJECTS;
and fellow Dawn Alumni,

Let your hearts not be troubled, I assure you there will be an
EXPOMART and a HOTEL in MONROEVILLE for the show!!! Any contruction
