see you their Mitey
Hey here is an idea don't go. Go to Steel city con with its one or
two artists and if your lucky maybe someone who was in a Star Wars
movie for half a second. Thats not a knock on Steel city I go to both
shows but to try and compare the two you must be smoking something
you should pass around. Steel city guest wise is no where near PGH
Con, so I'm sure the overhead cost is a lot less. Yeah it hurts
paying 18 bucks to get in but to me the trade off out ways that cost.
I'm the other end of the spectrum I collect artwork and enjoy meeting
the people who create the books and characters I enjoy. There is a
thrill in discovering a self published book that is actually better
than what the main steam companies churn out. If I was only there for
the dollar bins I probably would stay home or surf ebay. So you save
your $18.00 bucks and I'll tell Jim, Holly and the people who put on
the show thanks!
