      Hello folks,

      I recent days there are a couple of threads on the fansite that need
      our attention.

      First and Foremost, Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael Turner,
      his family and friends. Michael was more than just a guest of the
      Comicon, he was like one of the family. His anguish about not being
      able to make it to recent Comicons due to his health was palitable.
      He loved Pittsburgh, He loved the fans in Pittsburgh and we feel as if
      we've lost a member of the family. He will be sorely missed but
      always remembered fondly.

      Secondly for those of you concerned about the venue for the Pittsburgh
      Comicon in 2009, let your hearts not be troubled. We are aware of the
      situation and are hard at work trying to come to a solution. We have
      not given up on the Expomart, because although they are no longer
      booking conventions past October, they have not ruled out the
      possiblity that it will still be available come April. We are in
      constant communications with the staff there and if we can stay, we
      will. It has always suited our needs and been a good location for
      fans, vendors and guests alike. We have, however, not been sitting on
      our laurels and are in negotiations with other venues as possible
      replacements for the Expomart if need be. All of which would be
      suitable for a convention of our size. The Comicon will be held in
      April and as soon as we can confirm the location, we will.

      Talk to you all again soon,

      Patrick Thomas
      Marketing Director - Pittsburgh Comicon

        As for Comicon, for the love of God, I can name three places I hope
        you're not looking at. The Radisson in Greentree, the Marriott at the
        Airport, and the Marriott Pittsburgh North. My reasoning, from my
        past dealings with Kiddiecon, they couldn't hold that much smaller
        convention, let alone a big one like ours. They just wouldn't suit
        our needs by far.

        Happy 4th everyone.

          My heart goes out to Michael's family. May he rest in peace.

          As for Comicon, for the love of God, I can name three places I hope
          you're not looking at. The Radisson in Greentree, the Marriott at the
          Airport, and the Marriott Pittsburgh North. My reasoning, from my
          past dealings with Kiddiecon, they couldn't hold that much smaller
          convention, let alone a big one like ours. They just wouldn't suit
          our needs by far.

          Happy 4th everyone.
