Comicdom Con Athens 2010 [CCA2010]

Greece' only comic con is here again, brought to you by Comicdom/Comicdom Press and the Hellenic-American Union. This time it's our 5th birthday and we're going to celebrate with an all-star guest list:

*** Kyle Hotz (courtesy of Jemma Press)
*** D'Israeli
*** John Romita Jr (JR jr)
*** Mike Carey

Also, this year our Con is 3 days long, instead of the usual 2, so there's lots going around in CCA 2010. Here's the Con's program (remember, to attend a workshop you should have registered, our workshops are all closed now so no more entries can be entered, but there are always waiting lists, so consider joining per chance you get to attend a workshop):
