Emerald City Comicon Is This Weekend

Posted by on Thu, Feb 28, 2013 at 12:17 PM

Emerald City Comicon is HUGE this year, and if you don't have your tickets you're probably out of luck. There's still tickets available online for Friday only, and some retailers may still have tickets available for sale in-store, but there are no tickets at the door.

If you ARE heading to the Con this weekend, holy crap there's some awesome stuff happening. Just a (very) few of the people I'm looking forward to:

Ryan North, creator of Dinosaur Comics
Coop (!), whose hotrods, devils, ladies, and devil-ladies are unmistakable
Mike Mignola (!), creator/artist/writer of Hellboy
Natasha Allegri who designed Fionna and Cake, the gender-swapped versions of Finn and Jake on Adventure Time.
• Astronaut Clayton "Clay" Anderson
Brian Posehn (!) who, in addition to being a hilarious stand-up comedian, is a co-writer of Deadpool among other things

...and so many more!! Plus (as we mentioned in an earlier post) a crazy amount of celebrity guests!

Don't forget to download the ECCC schedule to your Guidebook app, and bring hand sanitizer.

The Stranger Testing Department and I will be Slogging from ECCC, so look for updates throughout the weekend!

Not only will Ryan North be there, he will (allegedly) be hanging out with Patrick Stewart.

Reporting for Saturday nerd duty, shopping, visiting old friends (I haven't seen or hung out with Kelly Sue in 10+ years), saying hi to Wil Wheaton, and to gawk at Patrick Stewart. The nerd sproutling baby will be attached to one of us in the carrier, Yoda style.

I am SO excited!!! Christopher Lloyd! Jhonen Vasquez! NASA!

There's a NASA room where you can learn about their sun and mars research, play with magnets, launch mini rockets, and do other fun activities. Come check it out in the kids zone.

Can the Stranger Testing Department check to make sure none of the Guests are Zombies or Vampires?


(werewolves are fine, we love dogs)
