We Go Wednesday (On A Thursday) - Emerald City Comicon

Emerald City Comicon 2012 sign
I've been waiting many years to get my geek on at the ultimate Seattle geekfest that is Emerald City Comicon.  Hubby always seemed to be gone to watch the kids, but this year, he was home and it was on. It was perfect timing because this year is the 10th anniversary. I took the boy because he is way into comics and stuff than the little one.

Now, I took a ridiculous amount of photos because there was just too much to see.  I'm not THAT blogger who shares all 263 photos, I'll just share some of the awesome and hilarious highlights...

Emerald City Comicon 2012 Isaac Hannaford Halo
...and Isacc Hannaford otherwise known as one of the conceptual artists for the boy's favorite game series, Halo. We were so slow when we walked up to his table and saw him drawing, we thought he was just another dude drawing stuff.  He even said he wasn't doing anymore commissioned work but he would love to have us come back the next day.

The boy was like "Those drawings are really good".  Then we saw the the magazine cover art, then we looked at him, and then we were like "Wait a minute...".  He has no signs up besides his name and his drawings, and that was so cool and humble at the same time. Or maybe he is so awesome, those who know him, know him and the rest of us are losers.  Meeting him was the highlight of the boy's day.

This guy from my favorite cartoon growing up, Battle Of The Planets....

...incidentally, I never saw this program in English, we were down in Panama when I was younger and it was dubbed over in Spanish. I did understand it, but it doesn't translate as well.  I almost purchased this DVD set but when he said $50, I got over it really quick.
