Subject: [pittscomicon] Convention Update, Six Months and Counting
Date: Tuesday, March 24, 2009, 10:31 AMHey Folks, I just sent a new update to the website yesterday and the webguys are hard at work on it as we speak. The following is the email update that will be going out in the next few days highlighting some guest updates for the Sept. Show.
I'll keep you updated,

SUBJECT: PITTSBURGH COMICON 6 MONTHS AWAY
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- ---------
We are Six Months away from Pittsburgh Comicon 2009 (Sept. 11, 12 and 13, 2009) and from here on out we'll be picking up steam. I know it seems strange for the Comicon to be six months away instead of a mere month away. It's been a weird winter for me not working on convention stuff day and night in preparation for April. But now that we've reached the six month mark from our new dates, it's time to start putting our foot on the gas. You can look forward to convention news coming at a much quicker pace from here on out. I'm currently working on our artist alley and small press guests and will have all the early registrations up on the site soon, but I do have a couple of announcements to make today to wet your appetite for September.
Our friends from EvaInk are returning in 2009 with fan favorite artist, Michael Golden of Micronaut/Dr. Strange fame. Michael was a GREAT guest last year and we are happy to have him back in 2009.
Also attending with EvaInk and appearing in Pittsburgh for the First Time is artist Steve Scott. Steve's recent work includes DC's Shadowpact and The Dark Knight movie adaptation and Marvel's Exiles, She-Hulk and Marvel Adventures:Hulk. He is currently working with Chris Claremont on X-Men Forever.
Lastly appearing with EvaInk is Robin Dale, Comic Book Documentarian behind the film series, The Creator Chronicles, which features DVDs focusing on the work of such comic luminaries as Michael Golden, George Perez, Joe Jusko and others. For more info on Robin's DVD series go to www.woodcrestproduc tions.com
I'll have more updates in the coming weeks and I look forward to letting you all know our plans for the 2009 show. Keep checking www.pittsburghcomic on.com for new information.
