The main page states "And feel free to talk about anything else related to the fandom in Pittsburgh, such as local comic book creators, local sci-fi series fans groups, or local comic shops."
While the main crux of the group is regarding the Pittsburgh Comicon that Pat, Rene and company put on yearly for us, there are other events that happen in the area which may be of interest to folks here. I prefer Comicon personally because I love the variety of the artists that are represented that are only available there. Occasionally, I enjoy hitting Steel City for the personalities that they bring in which wouldnt generally attend Comicon.
I'll never miss Comicon weekend, but it depends on who are guests at Steel City if I attend there. I don't particularly see it as a conflict of the purpose of this group to talk about other happenings in the area in the down time around the Comicon.
Thoughts or comments from other members?
