This weekend’s Emerald City Comicon seems to have been a raging success, if only from the amount of “highly refreshed” tweets we saw all weekend. The Seattle Times has a preview which notes that some 25,000 people were expected.
Based on the number of pictures like this one from @alisonst showing packed crowds, it would seem that the first year going from a two- to a three-day show was a raging success.
There were a few bits of news: Guy Davis is leaving BPRD after seven years — that seems like a decentish run.
This year’s It-boy Nick Spencer is now exclusive at Marvel but is free to work on as much creator-owned stuff at Image as he pleases.
Boilerplate, the mechanical marvel, was represented at the show, and was photographed with a kindred soul.
Local real-life superhero Phoenix Jones also made the scene, here with Kirby Krackle bandmember Kyle Stevens.
