Listen up, you nerds! There’s a massive festival happening right in the center of your city! And it’s full of stars! And merchandise! And signings from some of your favorite actors and authors! And hella people are going to dress like weirdos and they’ll be totally in their element! And I will join you there

Whether you’re a gamer, a comic book geek, a cinephile, a TV fanatic, or a cosplay enthusiast, Emerald City Comic Con has you covered. Me, I’m in it for Artist Alley, where you can interact with authors and artists of both mainstream and independent projects and directly support them. Then there are the panels, which range from educational to promotional to extremely goofy. (I recall a stellar one years ago entirely on Tina Belcher.) 

And then, of course, behold the celebrities, there for interviews, autograph signings, and photo ops. Some big-name highlights scheduled to attend are: 

⭐️ Jodie Whittaker (Dr. Who
⭐️ John DiMaggio (Futurama, a.k.a. my favorite show of all time) 
⭐️ Jhonen Vasquez (Johnny the Homicidal Maniac
⭐️ Dante Basco (Hook
⭐️ Writer/director Mike Flanagan and actress Kate Siegel (Midnight Mass
⭐️ Misha Collins (Supernatural

And for those Twihards who filled the SIFF Cinema Egyptian last November, four members of the immortal Cullen family are booked: Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, and Kellan Lutz. 

All the VIP tickets are sold out, but a 4-day pass will cost you $145 ($30 for kids), while single-day tickets range from $43-72. And for those who are crowd-averse, consider the Popverse ECCC Digital Ticket, where you can stream video panels from home.
