10. Biggest Change to Emerald City in 2013 – Doubled in size
While a lot of conventions have been steadily growing, Emerald City took a tremendous leap this year and doubled in size, both in realty and attendees. This impressive growth was adroitly handled by the always affable team, I really cannot say enough good things about the very friendly and helpful people who run Emerald City Comic Con every year. As always the crowd was friendly and generally pretty relaxed, it was still a great atmosphere, just a little more crowded. The sudden change did affect the environment, and this year was the first year that the convention felt just a tiny bit overwhelming, even if it was only in the sense that I couldn’t see all of the people I wanted to and somehow missing socializing with some very good friends. All this means is that I’ll have to try to come back again next year!

I never dreamed Max was so hairy. Is that a parademon Barda is standing on, or Etrigan?

It’s really annoying to page through this many pages when the individual entires are as short as this, guys. It’s why I don’t visit Newsarama much anymore.

Hey, this isn’t a Max Lord pinup… Is a Max Lord and G’nort pinup.

Well a Max Lord and G’nort’s hide pinup really…

Eurgh, more multipage articles. Are you really that desperate for pageviews?

Hey, you got a creeper shot of my alien costume! haha

Hey Emily, my photos are all up on my Flickr now, so if you want to comment on the one you’re in, I’ll put a credit in there for you. Thanks for making the effort and looking so good!

Do you have a link to your Flickr account?

Sorry Emily! It’s http://www.flickr.com/photos/secretbean/sets/72157632943724113/. I’m half asleep, meant to post the link there.

Surprised that Neil Gibson’s Twisted Dark booth poster isn’t mentioned. It was particularly impressive!
As I rounded one corner, the haunting smiling face hit me like a ton of bricks. I simply couldn’t stay away. The books are mightily good value – $5 for a whole graphic novel! Insanely good!
