Emerald City Comicon kicks off tomorrow in Seattle.  If you happen to be out that way, Dynamite has announced it’s convention schedule.  If you haven’t noticed, Dynamite’s been adding more “name” creators lately, with another one set to be unveiled… well, there’s a 2pm signing Friday, so the creator pretty much has to be there, I suppose.  It sounds like they’ve got some prints to give away, tied to Mark Waid and their new creator acquisition.

Official Hype follows, along with the convention covers being offered:
