Come See Me at Wizard World Pittsburgh

pittsburgh-comic-con-16If you live in or near Pittsburgh and like comics, or really even if you don’t, you should come to Wizard World Pittsburgh this weekend (Friday through Sunday). Max and I will be set up with a booth selling and signing our comic Cosmic Hellcats. We’ll be joined by several of the Cosmic Hellcat cosplay models who will also be signing books and photos and the like.

On top of that, I’ll be doing a panel on Saturday about comics and pop culture in the 1940s. I’m pretty excited about that one too. It’s at 5pm, so if you’re going to be at the show, you should definitely come check that out:

5:00 – 5:45PM 1940: WORLD WAR II AND COMICS: THE JOKER, ROBIN, THE FLASH, CAPTAIN AMERICA, CAPTAIN MARVEL, AND THE SPIRIT! With FINGEROTH, WISE, HASTINGS, MAVERICK & GAVALIER (ROOM 301)
75 years ago, in 1940, as the Nazi conquest of Europe continued and the Battle of Britain raged, the United States watched from the sidelines while instituting the first peacetime draft. At the same time, the world of comics was experiencing an incredible sustained period of invention, as The Joker, Robin, Green Lantern, the Flash, Hawkman, the Spirit, Catwoman, and Captains America and Marvel all debuted! (Not to mention the debuts of pop culture icons Bugs Bunny, and Brenda Starr, and classic movies Fantasia and The Great Dictator!) Showing and discussing historical and cultural factors that made that year so important is a panel including moderator Danny Fingeroth (Disguised as Clark Kent: Jews, Comics and the Creation of the Superhero) as well as an array of history and pop culture experts including Wayne Wise (Chatam University), Waller Hastings (West Liberty University), Christopher Maverick (Duquense University) Chris Gavlier (Washington & Lee University).

There’s also a bunch of people more famous than me and Max there (William Shatner, David Duchovny, Lou Ferigno, Jewel Staite, Dean Ambrose, and a bunch of other people), you know, if you’re into that sort of thing…. But really, if you’re not, just come to support me and Max… or else we’ll cry.

    I was wondering if you’d be there, I plan to stop by Saturday to go autograph hunting, so now I need to give myself time to say hi as well.

      Heh, admittedly it would be a little odd to have my friends autograph something, but I might just pick up a book and have you guys sign it anyway.
