I honestly don’t know how this snuck up on me. I probably wouldn’t have noticed until Johanna Draper Carlson of Comics Worth Reading mentioned it on her blog. If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, mark your calendars for April 4 & 5 for Emerald City ComiCon!
It’s one of the smaller conventions, but that just means that you got a better chance to chat with your favorite creators, including Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content, the Halfpixel crew, Jim Valentino of Shadowline Comics, Frank Cho of Liberty Meadows, and friggin’ Rob Liefeld.
Now, I personally won’t be attending, since I tend to avoid comic conventions and I’ve got some family engagements that week-end. But don’t let that stop you from joining in on the fun! It’s also being held at the Washington State Convention Center, which, honestly, is one of the best facilities I’ve been to.
Two day tickets are $25.00, while single pass tickets are $15.00.
(Also, and this shouldn’t affect your decision in any way, but I was surprised to hear — recently on the Webcomics Weekly podcast — that the guy running the show is also the proprietor of the comic shop I most visit. It’s weird how people you meet have the most interesting back stories. Just down the way from that comic shop a few years back, I was at a Sleep Country where I met the guy who created the Heroes of Might & Magic video game series.)
