I honestly donâ€™t know how this snuck up on me. I probably wouldnâ€™t have noticed until Johanna Draper Carlson of Comics Worth Reading mentioned it on her blog. If youâ€™re in the Pacific Northwest, mark your calendars for April 4 & 5 for Emerald City ComiCon!
Itâ€™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 frigginâ€™ Rob Liefeld.
Now, I personally wonâ€™t be attending, since I tend to avoid comic conventions and Iâ€™ve got some family engagements that week-end. But donâ€™t let that stop you from joining in on the fun! Itâ€™s also being held at the Washington State Convention Center, which, honestly, is one of the best facilities Iâ€™ve been to.
Two day tickets are $25.00, while single pass tickets are $15.00.
(Also, and this shouldnâ€™t affect your decision in any way, but I was surprised to hear â€” recently on the Webcomics Weekly podcast â€” that the guy running the show is also the proprietor of the comic shop I most visit. Itâ€™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.)
