Twitter’s pretty much a bust at the Convention Center (along with any good connectivity—I’m not sure if it’s the building or my network or both), so here’s what happened with me yesterday at the Emerald City Comicon.
Since we arrived 2 hours later than planned (which was already 2 hours later than when the con started), we headed straight for the back issue bins to satisfy my Wish List’s wants. I was able to snag readers copies of Teen Titans (1966), along with a fairly decent copy of Hawk and Dove (1968) #6 and Adventure Comics #428 featuring the first appearance of Black Orchid!
Next we walked the main floor looking at nearly everything. We eventually stumbled on Andy Price’s table, and he drew little postcard-sized Little Ponies that we bought for the girls (they both read the monthly comic).
Then it was off to a couple panels for me: the DC All Access and the Boom Studios editor’s panel. The Boom panel was informative, since I’ve long been interested in what a comic book editor does, my having been an editor for the last dozen years or so at an engineering firm. My wife went to a Ghosthunters Int’l panel and loved it.
Finally, dinner and collapsing at our hotel. Now off to the busiest day at the con!
