Emerald City Comicon is a strong con. It’s right up there with San Diego and New York. Unfortunately, ECCC’s social media manager messed up bigtime The con announced that industry veteran Philip Tan is a special guest this year. Tan is among good company. Alex de Campi, Chris Burnham, Fiona Staples, and Sean Gordon Murphy are scheduled to be there as well.
Here is Tan’s official announcement:
What’s wrong with this picture? Green Lantern is spelt wrong? The Green Lantern art was actually drawn by Billy Tan? Thankfully, Tan is a class act.
@emeraldcitycon guys, I don't mind better art on my info, but it might confuse fans, do you want me to supply new art for you? ;))
