“You will see the Pittsburgh Comicon Staff at the David Lawrence Center bringing our family friendly atmosphere to downtown Pittsburgh,” added George. “Our family and friends will continue to run the charity events, including Charity Quick Sketch & the Make-A-Wish Auction. All current contracts between the Pittsburgh Comicon & exhibitors or artists will be honored at this show. The Pittsburgh fans have been asking for bigger and better media guests and Wizard World will be able to provide that for them.”

With the addition of Wizard World Comic Con Pittsburgh, the largest-ever schedule of pop culture conventions will include at least 11 new events in 10 new venues. Longstanding events in Philadelphia and Chicago are among the 14 returning shows from last year.

CA – Sketch Fighter 2015

sf-tcb

Guest artists ANDREW ROBINSON (The Fifth Beatle), LIVIO RAMONDELLI (Transformers), RAFAEL NAVARRO, SCOTT LOBDELL, and RALPH MIRANDA appear at The Comic Bug on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 7:00 PM. All of the artists will create a drawing prior to the game and these drawings along with all art made during the game will be auctioned off and given to the HERO INITIATIVE.

These artists may be the best in their field when it comes to 30-day deadlines, but how will they do at sketching in 60 seconds or less? Likewise, their comedian tag-team partners may be quick on their feet on stage, but when their mic is traded for a marker, will they bomb? Only one team will emerge victorious and crowned Sketch Fighter Champions.

Following the game and the auction, the Comics and Comics stand-up show will take place, featuring the best all fanboy stand-up comedy in the Multiverse from JOE STARR, RON SWALLOW, ED GREER, TIM POWERS, SCOTT LOBDELL, and TOM FRANCK.

A story about twenty-something BFFs Jamie and Hazel, Girls With Slingshots has an expansive cast of their friends, including a talking cactus and a ghost cat (among other oddities). The slice-of-life dramedy revolves around topics of love, booze, sex, relationships, careers, living with your parents, and the worthlessness of an English degree. Corsetto also has written three Adventure Time OGNs published by BOOM! Studios, and created the strip “The New Adventures of Bat Boy” for the Weekly World News. She lives in the charming town of Shepherdstown, West Virginia with two cats and a rotating cast of vagrant friends in a big 18th century house filled with houseplants and containers of loose tea.
