Inaugural 3 Rivers Comicon Announced for Pittsburgh in May 2016 http://www.conventionscene.com/2015/07/28/inaugural-3-rivers-comicon-announced-for-pittsburgh-in-may-2016/ http://www.conventionscene.com/2015/07/28/inaugural-3-rivers-comicon-announced-for-pittsburgh-in-may-2016/#comments Tue, 28 Jul 2015 18:49:12 +0000 http://www.conventionscene.com/?p=64253 3 Rivers Comicon logo

Press Release:

New Dimension Comics owner Todd McDevitt is pleased to announce the first annual 3 Rivers Comicon, coming to Pittsburgh on May 21st & 22nd, 2016 featuring comic book vendors, artists, gaming, and attractions.

“Every major city has a comicon and I want to bring that excitement to Pittsburgh”, says McDevitt.  “In my 29 years in the comic business, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with almost all of the regional talent at one time or another. I can’t wait to bring them all together for one spectacular occasion.”

McDevitt wants to offer special thanks to artist DJ Coffman (https://www.facebook.com/djcoffmanart/photos_stream)  for the spectacular design of the conventions logo.  “I knew DJ would do a great job when tasked with this important element of our new undertaking and his design blew me away.”

The event will be held at the Century 3 Mall. “We will host this convention in a great space that is larger than most event venues in the city”, says McDevitt.

Details will take shape in the coming months on featured guests, vending, programing, tickets and special events.  “All the pieces are coming together quickly, but I wanted to get the plan announced as soon as possible a sort of “save the date” notice.”, says McDevitt.  “No one will want to miss this!”

Curious fans are encouraged to sign up for details at www.3riverscomicon.com; and follow us on Facebook at 3 Rivers Comicon, Twitter @3riverscomicon, and Instagram at 3riverscomicon.

Support from the veterans of the comic book convention community include these endorsements:

“I have fond memories of comic conventions in Pittsburgh.  It’s been quite a while since I’ve been excited to attend one there.  I know Todd is a comic book guy and that he plans to host a COMIC BOOK centered show.  I applaud the plan and will aid and support him in every way I can.  Look for HEROES in Pittsburgh soon!”

–Shelton Drum, Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find, Heroes Convention, Charlotte, NC

 

“Pittsburgh has a great history for comic collectors and deserves a large convention. Todd has been a good friend for decades and I’m sure he will be a great promoter for a convention just as he has been for his retail stores. I’ll be there for sure with all my best efforts to help it succeed.”   -Marc Nathan, Promoter of Baltimore Comicon

 

“With five successful comic shops in the Pittsburgh area and several one day comic shows Todd McDevitt is poised to fill the void left by the demise of the Pittsburgh Comic Convention.”  -Bill Thade, Promoter if the Gem City Comicon
