The Concept: The Legend of an old time Pittsburgh Steel Man® is brought back to life in a Modern Day Man of Steel.
In this original graphic novel, a Past Pittsburgh Hero and Legend of old is reborn as a Real Life Hero of Today caught up in an epic modern day battle of Good versus Evil.
The Real Life Adventures: Pittsburgh SteelMan® is Pittsburgh’s Official SuperHero who represents the past, present and future pride and glory of the town he loves. SteelMan® and his trusty companion SteelDog® are a Pittsburgh man/dog hero team that enjoy representing the Steel City. As a result of their many appearances at local and national events, SteelMan and SteelDog have become a Pittsburgh and national sensation. SteelMan’s unique costume is inspired from the actual uniforms used in Pittsburgh’s steel industry. The suit consists of what are called “silvers” which are aluminized flame resistant apparel used when steelworkers get close to molten metal. Both Steelman’s and Steeldog’s exploits are chronicled in their very own Comic Books, Coloring Books, Children’s Books and Newspaper Comic Strips.
The Story: The Steel-Man Series is like no other comic series you will ever read because it is based on real life events and there will be a level of controversy never before seen in graphic novel media. The Steel-Man Series is written by Steel-Man and promises many twists and surprises that will culminate in an ending you’ll never forget. Steel-Man is “The Only Real Man of Steel” and his comic series illustrates the life of a Real Life Anti-Hero in a city that has two faces. The Steel-Man will tell his story from his perspective and the reader will be free to judge the truth not told to Steel City and hid from the people. Read the story that the Pittsburgh media could not or would not ever tell – Read The Steel-Man Story. This story is not like any other you will ever read because, unlike all other comic books at The 2014 New Dimension Comic & Collectibles Show, this is the story that the Steel-Man never wanted to write . . . but he had no choice . . .
The Steel-Man Series is Rated M for mature because of the adult subject matter. And, if you want to try something truly unique, then read The Next Great One which just so happens to be a Pittsburgh Based Original Series and is based on “Steel-Man, The Only Real Man of Steel”.
Children’s Books: Because of Steel-Man’s immense popularity with the youth of Pittsburgh, the Steel-Man has teamed up with talented local “Disney Style” artist Marc Baker to create, “The Adventures of Steel Dog” Series. The story is written by Carol Lynn Vicini and edited by Steel-Man and published by Pittsburgh Steel Man, Ind. Media, Inc. Look for a new issue of “The Adventures of Steel Dog” at the 2014 New Dimension Comic & Collectibles Show, and come see our many products which include comic books, coloring books and children’s stories about “Steel Dog, The Only Real Dog of Steel”.
Have a Great Con !!!
