Just when Comic-con closes Steel City Con opens….
For us here at TheGamersBlog we did not have the opportunity (due to this little annoyance called responsibility) this year to head to San Diego for the great nerd migration known as Comic-con. Luckily for two of the editors here that live in the Pittsburgh area, soon to be only one, we have Steel City Con. A convention that is housed in one of Pittsburgh’s gigantic convention centers, it entails all things nerd (or geek if you prefer) with comics, collectibles, cosplayers, and more. ScrotusKilmystr and I will be there all weekend long and will bring you highlights, lots of pictures, and hope to come away with some great stuff to give away to you, the readers. No huge names will be there, though Tony Todd (Candy Man, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett, Star Wars) will be there along with the Garrison Carida of the 501st legion. The show should be enjoyable and hopefully I pull away from it with my wallet and credit intact, while I am not going in full cosplay, I will be dawning a Green Lantern shirt and ring hoping to dodge criticism for the half baked film. Anyone that is in the area, we will be there all three days presumably from open till close, hope to see you there.
