Dylan and John attended Emerald City Comicon 2016 and share their experiences and discuss what they would like to see the convention continue to do and also things they would like to see changed going forward into 2017.
At the end of March, 2015, my family and I made the journey to the Emerald City (Seattle, WA) to attend the 2015 Emerald City Comicon (ECCC). I talk about our (mostly my) experiences while there. Near the end of the episode, I talk generally about the new Daredevil TV series.
Emerald City Comicon 2015 was a blast. Another great year of comics, movies, television, and games all coming together to celebrate what we love. Dylan and John discuss what they enjoyed at the convention as well as a few trends they have noticed and wonder how things will change for next year. Also, they talk about some of the other shows they will be attending this year and possibly in future years.

Emerald City Comicon 2014 is over. Dylan and I had a great time there wearing our podcast shirts (thanks to Leigh Newman). We talked to so many people and saw some great panels and interviews.
ECCC also marks our 1 year anniversary of working on the show. It was last year at the con that Dylan and I discussed Avengers Vs. X-men and decided that we wanted to do a podcast where we record our discussions about comic book story arcs.
Also, this is our first “live” episode. We recorded this earlier this evening after getting home from the show. We had a great time and look forward to going again next year.
This episode I talk about four number 1 titles (ok, one is a number 0, but still) that I read recently: Hoax Hunters, Saga, Supercrooks, & Superbia. Then, I talk to a very special guest about our 2012 Emerald City Comicon experience.
March 30 – April 1, I will be in Seattle attending the 10th annual Emerald City Comicon. This episode we (Travis, a special guest, and I) discuss the con, why we’re so excited about it, and what we’re looking forward to.
This episode we discuss DC’s New 52 comics, six months into the grand experiment/relaunch. Before we get to that, however, we discuss some news coming out of WonderCon. Then, in Part 1 of our discussion (at about the 23:45 mark), we talk about the following New 52 families of DC comics:
Finally, in the episode, I mentioned a fellow comic blogger’s website, calling it Leonard Snart’s Gun, when actually it is named The Comics Rogue. Check it out.
Be sure to come back for Part 2 of the discussion.
