Jim and Holly G are back! OMG, Yeah!!!!
Those 2 year gaps have been killer, glad next year's show fits their schedule. I certainly don't mind the scheduling change, now.
...Any chance Pittsburgh could get ALAN DAVIS in 2013?? He seems like a great con guest. And doesn't do many U.S. shows.
I think having 3 weeks between Baltimore (9/7 & 9/8 2013) and Pitt should be fine.
And (Wizard World) Mid-Ohio (Sept 20-22, 2013) is more focused on entertainment guests, and less comic books.

We just need to get some of the things confirmed first. I can say that Jim and Holly will be back next year for their first back to back appearance at the show and we are always thrilled to have Jim and Holly. I've said it publicly numerous times, there just aren't any better convention guests than Jim Balent and Holly G! They are so attentive and generous to their fans. I would build a show around them every year if I could. I love them both!! But stay tuned. I promise exciting news about Comicon 2013 with some guests that have never been to Pittsburgh before and some that we haven't had for a very long time. ( I wish I could spill the beans now, but the boss would kill me. )
