after all

Emerald City Comic Con

Next week is Seattle's big comic convention, Emerald City Comic Con. For the first time in many years, I won't be working at the show, somewhat because Phil and Kaja have moved their fulfillment to Topatoco, but mostly because I can't get the whole weekend off from my toy store job. So although I have a 3 day pass, I'll only be there all day Friday and part of Saturday evening. These two factors combine to leave me a little concerned about what I'm going to be doing there, and whether I'll manage to meet up and hang out with anyone.

If you're going, and have both the time and the interest to hang out, please let's coordinate.

Now, on to the listing! This time I used a combination of my daily webcomic trawl (and see who posted about the show on their site) and a skim through the Exhibitor list. I know I've missed a few. And I know there are a lot more webcomics attending than this first compilation shows. Let me know in comments and I'll edit the list.

If I have the time later today, I'm thinking of putting together a writeup about what I as a reader and attendee would like to see about show - which is why there are short notes about whether they posted about the show on their site or not.
