Title: ComicsPriceGuide.com and Painted Visions present The VA Comicon on Nov 23-24


Copy: ComicsPriceGuide.com and Painted Visions Comics are proud to present the largest comic book show EVER in the state of Virginia! Founded 27 years ago, the VA Comicon in Richmond, VA is moving to our largest location (The Richmond International Raceway), which is 10x the size of our last show, and we will be having 10x the Fun and 10x the vintage comics! The VA Comicon is unique, as it is presented "in the round"...the entire show is one large circle. If you forget where your favorite dealer is, just keep walking, you will see them again! Oh yeah...you may just walk past a replica of the 1966 Batmobile, or jump into a green-screen photo with guests Harley Quinn, The Joker or Deadpool!


Artists? Yeah..we have em! Our Guest of Honor is Rob Liefeld. Known as the creator of Deadpool, Cable, X-Force, Youngblood, Supreme and more! Joining him is legendary co-creator of Wolverine, Herb Trimpe. The show also features James O'Barr, creator of The Crow, Dan Parent, creator of Archie's Kevin Keller and DOZENS of other top mainstream and indy artists and writers!

We will have a limited edition Transformers Dark Cybertron #1 with a cover by Rob Liefeld, a Bettie Page inspired Baroness GI JOE exclusive, a My Little Pony exclusive by Dan Parent, a Top Cow Aphrodite IX exclusive, and a secret "glitter-enhanced" Adventure Time exclusive cover!


Do we love vintage and investment-grade comics? Yes! We are a VINTAGE COMICS show. ALL of our vendors sell comics. ALL of our artists create or publish in the comics arena. While we hope to have TONS of cosplay (and will have a CA$H costume contest), we won't have any movie stars, or voice actors...but we DO have vintage comics vendor Comics to Astonish approved to accept CGC submissions on all tiers AND will have CGC witnesses on hand and lectures all day about investing in comics by the top experts in the field. Still want to geek out? Our second stage will be entirely fan operated with lectures chosen BY our Facebook fans!

Subject: Cosplayers! Dead Irons cover shoot at VA Comicon Nov 23-24!

VA Comicon Press Release
By James Kuhoric and Brett Carreras

Richmond's two day Virginia Comic Con is proud to announce a unique entertainment event to bring two of the most frightening characters in comics to life. Special effects and prop fabricator artist Brody Williams will be performing an onsite special effects make up test to take Silas and Annie Belle Irons from the fan favorite supernatural western comic book series, Dead Irons from illustration to flesh and blood. There will be a special green screen photo shoot courtesy of the Sci Fi Photo Guys that will be used in the upcoming 2014 sequel to Dead Irons. The photo shoot will also be used in helping to gain interest and support for a potential Dead Irons feature film. Popular cosplay model Amber Love will bring Annie Belle irons to life and the Virginia Comic Con is pleased to issue an open invitation to male modeling and cosplayers who would like to volunteer for the opportunity to be made up as the lead character, Silas Irons. Interested parties should contact deadironscomic@gmail.com by Friday 11/15.

Series creator James Kuhoric will be on hand to discuss the series and sequel with fans both days of the event . "The Virgina Comic Con is one of my favorite shows of the year. It is a real dream come true for me to see the Dead Irons characters brought to life at a convention that still embraces comics and comic culture above all else. Having a talented artist and special effects pro like Brody Williams as the creative force behind the photo shoot makes me confident that this will truly be a theatrical quality event."


To get the excitement rolling, we even added an extra category to our costume contest...best Zombie...with a monstrous CASH prize AND trophy!



Cosplayers...Dead Irons returns, and YOU can be in it!
Brett Carreras, promoter of the Virginia Comic Con, has been one of the most vocal supporters of the Dead Irons series. In addition to being the first CGC member dealer in Central VA, he is an Official Adviser to both the Overstreet and Fogel's Underground Price Guides, has been a guest lecturer on investment-level comic books, and was also invited to be a special collectibles consultant for ABC television. Nov 23-24 will see the return of the 2-Day VA Comicon. Brett has partnered with Woodbridge, VA retailer Painted Visions Comics to bring Rob Liefeld to his hometown of Richmond, VA in a space 10x the size of the show he first took over promotions for. This will be the BIGGEST comic book show EVER in the state of Virginia.
