[ENGLISH] Monroeville,PA– That’s right! The Pittsburgh Comic Con has announced the late addition of renowned illustrator Mark Texeira to their already stellar guest lineup, and his fine art style is sure to add  even more excitement to both the convention and the Saturday night charity auction as well! Known for his stunning interiors on « Ghost Rider » and « MoonKnight, »  and his fantastic cover work on « Red Sonja, » « Vampirella, » « Ghost Rider, » and more, Texeira has always been a fan fave at shows and on the book stands. Not to mention that his convention commissions are always wildly popular–just look at the lines at last weekends NYCC!!
