Emerald City Comicon: photos

Over 25,000 people descended on Seattle last weekend for the Emerald City Comicon. I attended Saturday, along with a friend. I avoided the long lines for panels and signings (William Shatner was a 2 hour wait!) and instead focused on comics and art. I bought some prints and had a good time. There were so many talented people there. Here are a few photos my friend and I snapped (before my phone died)…

Nightcrawler showed up…

There were Clone Troopers everywhere…

Phil and Kaja Foglio were looking sharp…

and Frank Cho was a busy man…

Todd and Craig were great fun, I loved The Perhapanauts…

One of the prints I purchased from the guys who made Wayfarer’s Moon – it’s a beautiful map, my camera doesn’t do it justice…

It was quite an experience, I’ve been to a couple cons in Portland, but they are tiny compared to this one. I also hit Pike’s Market, and my parents and my sister (who live in Seattle) took me to dinner for my birthday and then out for karaoke at the Hula Hula. On Sunday I said goodbye to them and drove back to Portland. See you next year, Emerald City Comicon!

Emerald City Comicon

Had a good time at the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle yesterday, great costumes including one guy dressed as The Goon and a woman dressed as Jessica Rabbit…

Also met a couple of great guys like Phil Foglio and Frank Cho. Bought some nice artwork as well. Worth the price of admission.
