Emerald City ComiCon 2006

Emerald City ComiCon 2006! Karin and Suzanne selling everything in their inventory. Check out Karin's site for more con photos.

What's a comic con without storm troopers? These guys were awesome. They came by my table and chat with me and Paul for a few minutes. Found out that their helmets have a built in mike system so you can hear them talk, just like in the movies.

From the left... it's Shane, Gene, and Bart. On the right side and not in the picture.... it's Paul, Augie, and Dev's table . Overall, I had a great time at the con. Friday night, I was so busy preparing that I only got a couple of hours of sleep. I hang in there and had a good time talking to folks and doing sketches. The not so good thing was the attendance. It was noticeable less this year. This is the first time the convention opened in April and with the weather being nice... folks just did other stuff outside... that's one theory anyway. Well, who knows... I still had a great time hanging out with my art pals and fellow comic geeks.

Again, thank you Paul for providing the pics.

Hey Ed!

Great to see you at the con!!

So you thought it was noticeably slower traffic-wise too?

I didn't get too much of a chance to walk around and talk to folks, but most everyone I talked to wasn't doing as good as last year. And it seemed like it was pretty light on attendance too...
I know I didn’t do as well as last year, and I had way more stuff to offer this year.

And thanks again for the great sketch! You are a manga/comics master!!
