2482Less than Two Weeks to Go
- Apr 12, 2010Hey folks,
We're under two weeks to go!!! Here is the latest e-mail update that will be going out to subscribers (later today, I think)
I'll be in touch,
Subject: Some Cooool Stuff and Some Stuff You Should Know.
Hello Comicon Cronies ,
We are just under two weeks away and I wanted to fill you in on Some Really Cooool Stuff, and a thing or two you as con-goers should know.
First we posted the covers to this year's program book on the Make-A-Wish Auction Page and they are both stunning.
The Front Cover is a Batman piece by Billy Tucci and the Back Cover is The Ladies of Aspen by up-and-coming Aspen artist, Alex Konat.
Go to www.pittsburghcomicon.com/charityauction.html for a sneak peek!
The original art from both will be available for bid during Saturday's Make-A-Wish Auction.
We also just added two special promotions to the site:
Ed Beard, Jr. will be selling an incredible Dragon print, (this thing is a huge 18 X 24), for ONLY $10 each. (Reg. $40)
and best of all, ALL of the proceeds from the sale of the print will be going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Stop by Ed's Booth to pick one up and while you're at it "Thank" Ed for his generosity.
Also Aspen Comics, has a special Pittsburgh Comicon Edition of Soulfire #4 that will be available at the show.
For a look at both of these great items, visit www.pittsburghcomicon.com/promotions.html
Lastly from the Cool Stuff department, the 2010 Pittsburgh Comicon T-Shirt is available for pre-sale.
The stunning shirt penciled by Glenn Klimeck, inked by Bob Almond and colored by Koa Beam is available for purchase now at: www.pittsburghcomicon.com/t-shirts.html .
If you can't make it to the show, or if you are afraid of us selling out of your size, you can pick one up right now!!!
In my last update, I mentioned the Belly Dancing with Princess Jasmine Kidz Day Event and I didn't have a time, well it will take place on Sunday at 12:00 12:30.
This event is just one more addition to what we hope will be an incredible Kidz Day. In my next update, I will give you a full rundown of the Kidz Day Events and Giveaways.
Now just some detail-y stuff, that I should go over just so everyone knows,
We've talked about it both on the Message Board and on our Facebook page, but for those of you not paying attention,
The show on Friday doesn't open until 1:00 PM, instead of 10:00 AM as in years past. (We will still be opening at 10:00 on Saturday and Sunday.)
And don't forget 3 Day Pass holders can get in ½ an hour early on ALL THREE DAYS.
Also for those of you coming to meet Roy & Dann Thomas, the pair have to fly out early Sunday morning, so Roy and Dann will only be available for Friday and Saturday of the show.
Anyone looking to attend our evening events, Casino Night (Fri.) and the Make-A-Wish Auction (Sat.), please note that these events will be taking place in the Ballroom of the Host Hotel, The Monroeville Doubletree and not in the convention hall. The Hotel is directly next door to the Convention Center and both events are open to everyone.
And lastly, artists and presale ticket holders, please enter through the V.I.P. Entrance (the entrance closest to the Convention Center), General Admission should go through the front entrance, (the entrance directly off of Mall Blvd.)
That's it for now, I'll be in touch at least once more before the show, but let me say now, I look forward to seeing you all.
