*UPDATE 5-3-2009: I saw the movie. Verdict: I thought it was okay. It have a lot of flaws and also feels like they try too hard to make everything fit with the other X-men movies. I did enjoy it as a popcorn flick. There you go.

2. Sketch book and Preview of Pulp Girls by Jason Martin. Super nice guy, talented artist, and very knowledgable comic publisher.
3. This is the only book I bought at the show. Monsters and Dames is an art book by the guest artists at this convention. With the convention guide, you can go around and get the book signed. I got 12 signatures... which is not too shabby, I think. :)
4. I traded my Batgirl sketch to my friend Memo Diaz for this print. Awesome!
5. This is an official "Ghost Hunter: International" pin. A gift from a fellow artist Rich Schleifer. He knows I dig the paranormal shows. Thanks Rich!
For me, one of the best thing about this con is seeing all my art buddies. Some from working in the game industry... other just comic artists I meet through the years. Below is a sketch of Augie Pagan... he sat next to me and Memo. (Augie, hope you're not mad at me for doing this pic!)
And this is the last part my Emerald Con Report. I'm all signed up to do this again next year. So see y'all again at Emerald Con 2010, on March 13th and 14th. Peace!
This is another original character "Candy" by Molly Nemecek. This is updated using her scan of the original sketch. Thanks Molly!

You can't get any light reflectors in Seattle now... thanks to this Ghost Buster.
Sorry Chewie.... I didn't see Han Solo at the con.
You can barely see it... but Kitty Pryde have a small purple dragon on her shoulder.

Saturaday morning, I arrived at the show and was stunned to see so many people waiting in line to get in. Later I found out that people waited 45 minutes to an hour before they got in the con that morning! It's great to see such a turn out.
It's not what you're thinking.... everyone lined up to see Mike Mignola! ;) Darth Vader (just a cosplayer) was right in front of me. I stood up and took photos of my area. Click on the pic above to see the larger version! It was the biggest and best show for Emerald Con!
