2006 Con Review
- Hello everyone this is Troy. I was the guy in the really cool Black
Heroes shirt and pushing the lady in the wheel chair. I also wore
the Brown Hornet shirt on Sunday. This is my 7th Pittsburgh
Convention and I would like to share my review.
Guests: All the guest were great. Sorry to see that some couldn't
make it but understandable. The return of Jim and Holly were great.
And to have Brain Bendis there was awesome. Everyone was courtesy
and pleasant. I like that we got to see some new faces and artists.
The special guest like Bruno had everyone smiling.
Activities: The panels and activities were good. The talk with
Bendis was fun and informative. The Quick Sketch was always
entertaining. If they need someone to help host and entertain I
would be glad to volunteer. Casino night was a little quite, having
some music playing in background might add to the fun.
There has been a lot of talk about the Costume Contest. I do agree
that different catagories would help some costumes get better
recgonization. Adding judges with different backgrounds could help.
Additions: I would like to have a more social activity scheduled to
mingle with the artist in a non-professional manner so we can get to
know the person and not just the creator. I know that it is hard to
fit everything in with trying to do the fund raising events. But
just a thought. I do miss the models and more of the erotic art
area. I know that we want to make this a family event but there are
some of us who really like that side of comics.
I also would like to see an information board that told the intake
of the Quick Sketch, winner of the Texas Hold 'em, and highest item
sold at the Auction.
Overrall I would give the con about an 8 out of 10. It was fun and I
got to meet to fun fans. I will continue to keep this on my comic
tour list and talk it up with all my friends.
