We just put a bunch of new events up on the site that we thought you might be interested in:

First for all you aspiring actors and actress out there, check this out:. OPEN AUDITIONS FOR EVTV'S TEARS OF ASHThe New Internet Television Network EVTV is looking for a few good men and women. The Network has 8 different shows in production including, the Sci-Fi/Horror series, Tears of Ash. If you've always wanted a chance at stardom, this is it. The producers of the Tears of Ash will be choosing various people from the Pittsburgh Comicon to have a chance to appear in their new series. Selectees will be put up on EVTV ( ) for an "American Idol" type vote with the winner receiving a role in the groundbreaking series.

They will be available for questions about the film and about the film making process.

PLEASE NOTE: For those of you coming to the show to attend a particular panel, we've had to do some shifting, moving, juggling and whatnot to add these new events, so please check the schedule of events at the website to make sure the panel you are interested in hasn't moved times, rooms or days.

Additionally, lest you think Panels are my only topic of interest, we did add a bunch of new guests, including:

. Dan O'Conner, artist of the recent Kong:King of Skull Island miniseries;
. IFBB Fitness Competitors, Adela Garcia & Sonia Adcock who will be attending with J.M. Manion; Together they are promoting the comic that has taken the fitness world by storm, Iron Sirens.
