Hey folks this is the email update that is about to go out. The website should be updated soon to include the recent additions.
Greetings My Comicon Compatriots,
We are thrilled to announce the addition of Super-Star Artist and Writer, PHIL JIMENEZ to the 2011 Pittsburgh Comicon Guest List!!
With Phil added to a guest list that already includes comic legend, GEORGE PEREZ, we can boast the appearance of two of the most detailed artists in comicdom. Between the two of them, you would be hard pressed to name a comic character that these superstars haven't drawn. We couldn't be more happy about bringing Phil to the Burgh for the first time!!
And while I'm making announcements, we also recently added the returning guests, Legendary Comic artist and inker, JOE SINNOTT; writer of the YOUNG ALLIES and the upcoming ONSLAUGHT UNLEASHED, SEAN McKEEVER and Pittsburgh's own superstar artists, Spidergirl's RON FRENZ and Booster Gold's PAT OLLIFFE.

Also just last week we added the first piece to our Make-A-Wish Auction.
It is the COVER to the 2011 PROGRAM book, done by F.O.P.C. (friends of the Pittsburgh Comicon)
JAY FIFE and BOB ALMOND. We are elated to have art from this pair, who are long-time guests of the show, appearing as our 2011 Program Cover.
