Very nice opening message Alexiel! I'm a newbie here, but not to the Pittsburgh Comicon. Over the years I've enjoyed guest status and have hosted a couple panel discussions there back in the early 1999-2000 years. I had attended in one capacity or another since the very start only missing one year to illness. And in 2004, had a mild heart attack there. 'Course, I can laugh at it all now...but spending the weekend in my onsite hotel room feeling ill wasn't fun. And did I catch hell from my family for not telling someone other than my 13yr old son and a friend. The three of us traveled there from upstate New York.
Well, the good news is that I plan to again be there this coming year. After skipping 2005, and having a bad business year since that year before ... I figured Pittsburgh would be a great place to premiere my new publishing endeavor. The guest list looks great, and seeing old friends that I only stay in touch via telephone and email will be nice. 'Course I missed donating anything to the charitable auction last year -- and Mike, Renee, and family with friend support work so hard to make the convention a yearly successs ... I'll have to make up for missing last year.
This egroup list was a nice idea! Thank you!
