CGS Super Show - Panda Dog Press

We're pleased to announce that Panda Dog Press will be exhibiting at the Comic Geek Speak Super Show in Reading, Pennsylvania, April 30-May 1, 2011.

Although this will be our first time attending a Super Show, we here at Panda Dog Press have been long-time listeners of the podcast, and have had the good fortune to meet the CGS crew and many CGS listeners at various conventions in 2010. We cannot wait for this event!

If you'll be at Super Show, please make sure to stop by the Panda Dog Press table where you'll be able to check out Animal Control: Special Creatures Unit and the new book from Elevator Pitch Press, Great Zombies in History! (More information on that project soon.)

Both Rob Anderson, Panda Dog Press publisher and writer, and DaFu Yu (Grimm Fairy Tales), one of the cover and interior artists on Great Zombies in History, will be at the Panda Dog Press table, so come on by and check out the books, pick up a sketch, or just say "hi"!

DaFu is also doing a limited number of pre-convention commissions, as well as sketches at the show. You can get more information on that right here.

We hope to see you there!
