    I copied this post from wattoswrath as to keep the con info to one thread.:


    Just wanted to share this info for those that don't get a newsletter from the Pittsburgh Con.

    Anyone with a Grievous statue, get it ready to be signed. He is coming to Pittsburgh. I met him at C3 and seemed to be a very nice person.

    Hey all you Comicon Crazies,

    The Countdown to Pittsburgh Comicon 2007 is beginning with just days to go, but don't think just because the con is just around the corner that we are resting on our laurels. Oh-no, we still have plenty to announce. Just earlier today we added twenty new guests to the guest list, including:

    ? Current X-Factor artist, KHOI PHAM

    and from STAR WARS:REVENGE OF THE SITH

    ? General Grievous, MATTHEW WOOD

    For a full list of guests check out www.pittsburghcomicon.com/guests.html



    With the addition of General Grievous, we've scheduled a Q & A involving all our Star Wars Guests, including Peter (Chewbacca) Mayhew and Wayne (Gov. Tarkin) Pygram. All the new events are as follows:

    ? FRIDAY 3:00 - STAR WARS' GUESTS Q & A

    ? FRIDAY 6:00 - GHOST HUNTING Take a look at paranormal phenomenon with GHOST HUNTER-Steve Gonsalves and from One Night at Prospect Place, Dan Gorman and Joe Dutt

    ? SATURDAY 12:00 - SPECIAL SCREENING: ONE NIGHT AT PROSPECT PLACE, a documentary about one of the U.S.'s most haunted mansions with director Dan Gorman

    ? SATURDAY 2:00 - CREATING COMICS WITH DAVE CAMPITI, super-agent Dave Campiti wants to help you make it in comics.

    ? SATURDAY 3:00 - TATTOO CONTEST sponsored by Jester Court Tattoo and the Star Wars Association of Pittsburgh, Cash Prizes.

    See www.pittsburghcomicon.com/events.html for details on all these new events.


    ? We also just added a HORRORCLIX event to our gaming schedule at 3:00 pm on Saturday. For a full gaming schedule check: www.pittsburghcomicon.com/gaming_schedule.html



    Lastly, we've made a HUGE update to the Charity Auction Page
    CGC, Comics Guaranty has been generous enough to donate the grading of over 70 comics for the 2007 Charity Auction.
    For a sample of what you can look forward to head on over to www.pittsburghcomicon.com/charityauction.html

    OK that's it for now, but with just mere days left until Comicon 2007, we still may have some surprises up our sleeves, so stay tuned.

    If you will be attending the [link=http://www.pittsburghcomicon.com/]Pittsburgh Comicon [/link]for the NE Fanforce Awards Banquet:

    Friday, April 27, 2007

    FanForce Pittsburgh will be hosting a Friday night social for any FanForce members and their guests.

    It will be held at the Radisson Hotel, which adjoins the Expomart where the Comicon is held, and will be in the Monroe 3 room. This room is one of the ones used for Star Wars panels.

    Very casual. Snacks and beverages will be provided, and we'll be screening the very funny, professionally produced fanfilm, [link=http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=92470359]A Great Disturbance[/link], tentatively to be given a personal introduction by the film's creators.

    If you plan to attend, please pm me, [link=http://boards.theforce.net/ASP/user.asp?usr=TRADMIC]TRADMIC[/link] so I can get an idea on how many people to expect.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone!
