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!”
