    I come down from Beaver county and I must say I enjoy it. I got a couple sketches (a thor frog, and a rocket racoon as cap). I also got my birthday cards done.

      I had a blast at the CON. This was my 2nd time there but it felt bigger and better. I loved the prices on most of the comics. Wish they had newer ones at all of the booths though. And meeting STAN LEE was totally awsome. Plus i got several autographs from RAMONA FRADON, RON FRENZ , MIKE GRELL & GREG HORN. Didn't get one from Adam Hughes though, he was a little too busy. But i had a blast. I hope i get to go to next years. I do have one question though, would there ever be a chance to have a COMICON down at DAVID L LAWRENCE CONVENTION CENTER. I live on the WESTERN SIDE OF PITTSBURGH and Monroeville' s quite a distance. But hey, I went cause of Stan Lee.

        We went up for casino night on Friday as we usually do and had a blast there.  It was fun listening to Rene, Pat and the staff have fun and cheer the folks on when the time came to hand out to winners of the Chinese auctions at the end of the night.

        Saturday was the only day that we went up to the con this year.  I had to work early that morning, so I didnt get there until a little before 11:30am and the Stan Lee tickets were sold out.  Glad to see that they sold out, disappointed I couldn't have got a ticket for it, but that's life.  I do like the new setup in the center.  Even a few of the artists that I talked to commented that the lighting is better then in the old Expo Mart.  I go more for the artists and guests then the comic book side of things.  I got a nice Bettie Page original piece from Jay Fife, so my weekend was a good one.

        I didnt attend any of the seminars that were held, but I like how the rooms are easily found right off of the main floor area, thats a nice change and people wont need maps to be able to find their way to what interests them.  I think overall for the first convention in a new building, the pluses far outweighed the minuses.  The floor didnt seem as cramped as it always felt at the Expo Mart and the aisles were nice and wide as well.  The only minus that I could see that couldnt be corrected this weekend was that there seemed to be a lack of parking, but once the renovations are completed at the hotel next door, some more parking should open up, and it seems most folks also availed themselves to the parking next door at the Babies R Us. 

         Overall a nice start to the con's next chapter and I'm looking forward to April already!

        -Joe

          I won the quilt! (Which is a relief since I spent $80 in raffle tickets on it.) Now I just have to make sure my cats never get to it. Regarding suggestions

            Regarding suggestions for next year's show, I believe Reneé is going to the Baltimore con next month to try to recruit some guests for April. Maybe you all could take a look at their guest list and post your top 5 or so guests you'd like to see in Pittsburgh. Then we can compile the lists to give Reneé an idea of whom to concentrate on.

But the DCM people are nice enough to take lots of photos of the costumers and share them online, I don't think it's asking too much for their credits to remain intact on their work.

                    A top 5, huh?

                    Jo Chen
                    Erik Larsen
                    Jo Chen
                    Stuart Immonen
                    Jo Chen

                    Honorable mention to Jerry Lawler. Did I mention Jo Chen?

Maybe you all could take a look at their guest list and post your top 5 or so guests you'd like to see in Pittsburgh. Then we can compile the lists to give Reneé an idea of whom to concentrate on.

I was a bit disappointed with the lack of freebie swag, heard many people talkin about it. Got the chance to introduce myself to Patrick, nice guy.  Who won the quilt??? LOL I cant believe i bought tickets to win a quilt, Im gettin old.

I had to go and get it signed on the one side by Tucci, Igle, and Hughes, walk through the vendors just to get halfway to Moore and then the rest of the way to get to Jusko. I liked it better when the artists were wrapped around the wall. It made it easier to get to the artists.

Maybe you got them from somewhere else and that had already been done, I don't know whether it was you personally or not. But the DCM people are nice enough to take lots of photos of the costumers and share them online, I don't think it's asking too much for their credits to remain intact on their work.
