Emerald City Comicon. This is indeed true! We will be in the exhibitor's section at booth #403, right across from AKA Comics and Stykman! Just down from us will be the incredible folks from QEW Publishing, several of whom I have profiled in interviews since last October. It should be wonderful to see these great people!
Here is the skinny: The comicon is being held Saturday, March 31 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m and Sunday, April 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be at Qwest Field Events Center, which is right next door to where the Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Mariners play. The guest list is as vast as it is impressive, and for the life of me, I can't figure out who to go see first. Go check out the official site for details!
My husband Jim and I will be co-manning the Comics Fairplay booth. We are having a small raffle, with proceeds split to benefit HERO Initiative and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. We will also be handing out free comic books to the first 100 people who come by the booth each day. To top all that off, we will have a laptop showing the blog, and folders of recent, topical blog entries.
Our good friend Brian is looking for good people to help him out at the HERO Initiative booth. If you are going to be attending the show and want to help out, e-mail me at HeidiDC@aol.com and I will pass your information on to him. It is critical to have people that can work for such a good cause. Even if you can only stay a couple of hours, please let me know.
I am looking forward to seeing Laura and Greg at the show. It is fantastic to see my fellow bloggers! I can hardly wait! These are people who have inspired me, in the past and continue to do so today.
Jim and I are looking forward to seeing our friends from last year. You know who you are! We are also looking forward to meeting new friends and having some great conversation. Please find us and introduce yourself! We aren't too shy!
We will be at the show. Will you?
