      I see your point. But I see the con peoples point too. I think it should be more affordable to go  to the con. The radisson is raping people 149 a night, Im staying 1 mile up the street (if that)  for 74.99 a night.The steel city con charges you like 7 bucks to get in, they have people the comicon wont get, and there is plenty of comics to dig through too. that show is growing more popular every time they have it (Mar 29,30)
      I think 10 bucks a day to go to the con is fair, but its just getting out of hand

      That's nice but how about taking $8 off the entry price?  How about
      charging that $8 to get into the artist area?  How about getting new
      vendors so we don't have 5 tables of bootleg DVDs and a guy selling
      basement water proofing?

      There's too much emphasis on the artist alley and guests and not enough
      on the vendors.  I go to find stuff I can't get at the local shop and
      dig through the bargain bins.  The only artist I ever went to see was
      Frank Cho and he hasn't been a guest in years.  If the guests are such
      a draw then the fee to see them won't be an issue and it'll draw more
      people, like me, who want to just browse the dealer area.

      I've gone to every Con so far.  This will be the first one I've missed
      and  it's due to the over inflated entry fee and lack of new sellers. 
      Does anyone else feel this way or and I the Lone Ranger here?


      • How about Battlestar Galactica's Chief Tyrol, Aaron Douglas
      appearing for the first time in Pittsburgh?
      • and How about Ghost Hunter International's Brian Harnios?
      • Lastly from the media guest category, we have: "Fighting Crime
      One-Donut at a Time", Who Wants to Be A Superhero's Fat Momma;
      We have also added 40+ others guests from throughout the comics
      Two guests that made it just a smidge too late to be included in the
      flyer, include:
      • Writer of Guy Gardner, Wyonna Earp and the new 24:Cold Warriors
      Graphic Novel, comic's toughman, Beau Smith
      and classic actor from many Ed Wood productions and various horror
      films, Conrad Brooks.
      We have also just added our events schedule, a partial gaming schedule
      and new auction stuff;
      You can check it all out at www.pittsburghcomicon.com
      We do have two cancellations to announce: We regret that scheduling
      changes will preclude Ken Foree and Brian Pulido from making it
      Pittsburgh Comicon 2008, but we hope to see them again in coming
      That's it for now but you can count on more exciting stuff coming up,
      ...........and the show goes on!!

      I'm always glad to make the fanboard, the first in the know.
      Talk to you soon, Patrick
