Tickets to the Emerald City Con in Seattle next April went on sale earlier today, and four day passes are already sold out.
You can get many other kinds of badges still but…might want to get on it.
Time to plan, gang. Choose quickly.
Only a handful of guests have been announced for the show, to be held April 7-10, 2016—Aaron Kuder, Faith Erin Hicks, Fiona Staples, Irene Koh, Kris Anka, Raina Telgemeier, Robert Venditti and Sean Gordon Murphy—but of course more are coming and will be ultra blue-chippers and a great time will be had by all.
Obligatory Old Fart Moment (OOFM™): If you had told me when I was a kid that comics conventions would be eagerly awaited events with tickets that sold out as quickly as concerts or sporting events…I would have said you are nuts. But you weren’t.
