Emerald City ComicCon 2013

This was my first time at the Emerald City ComicCon. My sometimes-tablemate Reid, who last year conquered this Con, was back for a second round. He gave me the following advice:

With that in mind, I set up. I shared space with Tyrell Cannon, who is at this point more legend than man. Think Alan Moore mixed with Jake Gyllenhaal. We were a smashing success, hailed by one attendee as his favorite table at the show.

Between the two of us and Reid and Matt, you’d think there was nothing else worth visiting. You would be wrong. The following are just a few of the cartoonists who made the show Twitter-famous:

Farel Dalrymple

Francois Vigneault

Lucy Bellwood

Miriam Libicki

Victoria Ying
Mike Yamada

Bill Robinson

Hannah Partlow

Eric Esquivel

Covering the Con was intrepid reporter Henry Barajas. Henry does not have a household name. Yet.

Morgan Gendel, writer of “The Inner Light,” the very best episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation was selling copies of his Hugo Award winning script. I got to chat with Morgan and bask in the glow of his genius. I learned he went on to write for Law & Order, which surprised me since I don’t recall that show being set in outer space.

Thanks to the kind people of Washington for putting on such a great show. I will return next year!
