Hey Guys & Gals,
We have a website update going up in the next day or so and as usual
here is a preview of what's going on......
The following is the e-mail that will go out once the update is complete.
Ok folks, it's getting to crunch time. With just weeks to the show
I'm juggling lots of stuff. (Luckily I'm a fair to moderate juggler,
you should see me with fire sticks.... ooops got off the track.)
We just put a bunch of new events up on the site that we thought you
might be interested in:
First for all you aspiring actors and actress out there, check this out:
• OPEN AUDITIONS FOR EVTV'S TEARS OF ASH
The New Internet Television Network EVTV is looking for a few good men
and women. The Network has 8 different shows in production including,
the Sci-Fi/Horror series, Tears of Ash. If you've always wanted a
chance at stardom, this is it. The producers of the Tears of Ash will
be choosing various people from the Pittsburgh Comicon to have a
chance to appear in their new series. Selectees will be put up on
EVTV ( www.my-evtv.com ) for an "American Idol" type vote with the
winner receiving a role in the groundbreaking series. Auditions will
run from 3:00 to 5:00 PM in Monroe I and are open to anyone
interested. You can sign up on Saturday at the EVTV table directly
inside the Radisson Entrance to the Expomart. To find out more head
over to www.my-evtv.com
• Adding to what everyone has been calling "PARANORMAL FRIDAY" (well,
not everyone, just me really, but I hope it catches on),
In addition to our GHOST HUNTERS PANEL with Brian Harnois, we now have
a UFO PANEL with the State Director of the Mutual UFO Network, John
Ventre. This makes for a whole afternoon of Paranormally Goodness.
The UFO PANEL is at 4:00 pm with the GHOST HUNTERS PANEL at 5:00 pm.
• For all you Costumers out there, the good folks at Alienated
Productions (The guys & gals that are always walking around in those
awesome costumes) will be holding a COSPLAY Q & A Saturday at Noon.
• A popular panel from 4 years ago has returned:
PISS, VINEGAR & SWEAT II - Four years ago a group of independent
publishers got together to share their success and horror stories.
Now they reunite to update their war journals. With Joe Linsner, Eva
Hopkins, Jason Yungbluth, Stuart Sayger and Pete Stathis. This panel
will take place Saturday at 1:00 PM
• The Good People of the Star Wars Association of Pittsburgh have
added a Autograph Collecting Panel on Saturday at 3:00; and...
• I mentioned in a previous update that we would be Screening the
Award Winning Horror Short, The Beast In Me and now I can give you the
details. The werewolf thriller will show in our movie room on Friday
at 3:30 PM, Saturday at 3:00 PM and Sunday at 12:30 PM. The Saturday
showing will be a special showing with the film makers. They will be
available for questions about the film and about the film making process.
PLEASE NOTE: For those of you coming to the show to attend a
particular panel, we've had to do some shifting, moving, juggling and
whatnot to add these new events, so please check the schedule of
events at the website www.pittsburghcomicon.com to make sure the panel
you are interested in hasn't moved times, rooms or days.
Additionally, lest you think Panels are my only topic of interest, we
did add a bunch of new guests, including:
• Dan O'Conner, artist of the recent Kong:King of Skull Island miniseries;
• IFBB Fitness Competitors, Adela Garcia & Sonia Adcock who will be
attending with J.M. Manion; Together they are promoting the comic that
has taken the fitness world by storm, Iron Sirens.

That's it for now. There is less than three weeks to the con and I
promise I'll be talking to you all again before the show.
