Emerald City Comicon 2012

I swiped this photo from the Komo News website.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday we exhibited at Emerald City Comicon for the second time. We had a great show! This convention is one of the best we've been to. It has a comfortable mix of comics, games and other media, but keeps the focus on comics much more than some other cons of its size. Artist Alley takes up nearly a third of the convention floor. There are a lot of local artists in the Seattle area, and artists who work in the gaming, comic book and other publishing industries are well represented.

Our table.
Our table was at a good location on a major aisle, and there was a lot of table traffic for the duration of the convention. We heard a rumor that Saturday's attendance alone matched that of all three days last year. There were so many people in the exhibit hall on Saturday afternoon that a restless line of attendees was asked to wait outside the hall until enough people had left in order to comply with fire codes. Please don't let the crowds discourage you from coming in 2013, though. It's a wonderful convention (still not nearly as crowded as San Diego) and there's a lot to see and do. I only wish I had had more time to wander the exhibit hall and check out the work of other artists.

Now onto what you were really waiting for: the photos! Since we were occupying our table throughout the weekend we had to wait for various costumed heroes to come to us for photos, but if you'd like to see more, check them out here.

Thanks to everyone who made it such an excellent show! We'll be back again next year!
