Default Emerald City Comicon

Just attended all 3 days and it was BUSY! Met a ton of up can coming artists and media guests! It was a great CON and this is my 2nd year going to it...I will attend every year that I can! They bring in some amazing artists and media guests!

I also was one of the lucky few to get The Walking Dead Compendium Hardcover, limited to 1000 copies. They only had 100 available for the Con and they will have 900 for San Diego Comic Con. So the lucky few who picked them up are the 1st to have them until July! They gave raffle tickets out and who ever won the lucky drawing got to buy theirs at $100/book. I was unlucky and didn't win the raffle but met someone who didn't want theirs and bought that one of him. Then Robert Kirkman's brother (at the end of the show) said there were a few left for sale and I snatched one up.

Here's some info about the compendium

The Walking Dead Compendium Hardcover ECCCExclusive - Home - Skybound - The Walking Dead, Invincible, The Infinite, and more

That's just too cool.

Summer was cool...she saw my Rangers shirt and was like "oh..Texas, I'm from Texas" so we chatted about Texas...she's from San Antonio and I grew up in Dallas area, etc...she was really cool.

Jon Bernthal seemed like he was high...laughing and just forgetting what questions people were asking him. He kept messing with his hat and hoodie and it got to be pretty bad as to where he kept pulling the hoodie on and taking it off.

At one point when I was up meeting him and Laurie Holden I mentioned how Shane did a good job teaching Andrea to shoot and Laurie looked at me and said yeah he did but I taught him the ways of "love" (sex scene). Bernthal over heard that and interjected his humor and had everyone around us laughing pretty hard.

Bernthal even said he suggested an alternate ending to him dying which the writers didn't care for but I thought was pretty cool.

Coolest dude was Eddie McClintock (Warehouse 13). He was going around giving everyone hugs and went out into the audience to answer questions...he got in trouble for doing that since security couldn't keep up with him.

Christopher Judge was a cool guy as well and he's a former Oregon Duck football player so we chatted about that.

All in all it was a great show...I'm definitely doing it again next year!
