We’re back, kids. And we’re still pooped! This year’s Emerald City ComiCon — our first — has come and gone, and though it was only two days, it felt like being transported for months to a magical world of huggable people, endless Starbucks and male Slave Leias.
Pop! Goes the Icon founder Pj Perez and Omega Comics Presents contributor Jason Copland spent most of the weekend manning the PGTI table in Artist Alley, wedged between the Ben 10 guys and superstar DC artist Dustin Nguyen (not to be confused with the dude from 21 Jump Street). We talked with lots of people, sold some comics and prints, and gave away the two pages of original art from Jason’s OCP story with Dino Caruso. It was an extremely well-organized and pleasant affair, and the crowds were amazing! Seriously, San Diego Comic-Con may be larger in general, but ECCC is growing quickly — even expanding to three days next year to accommodate the increased traffic.
We appreciate everyone who stopped by to chat, buy stuff or find directions. Sorry we weren’t much help on the third part there. Will we come back to Seattle for another round? Most certainly! Will they have us back? We sure hope so! Stay tuned here for updates on future convention appearances.
