This weekend brings the annual installment of the ever growing Emerald City ComiCon. It's hard to see how it can get any bigger than it is right now, as this year's guest list features two of the biggest names ever to appear atop a fanboy's list of cult heroes. Both Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee and Mr. Spock himself Leonard Nimoy will be speaking and signing autographs. I'd suggest getting in line NOW if you intend to exchange a little "live long and prosper" with either of them. Further down the A-list, but still exciting enough to send a tremor through this fan's heart, is Love and Rockets co-creator Gilbert Hernandez, who should be somewhat easier to mindmeld with.

Also delighted to see that local hip-hip comics publisher Capstan Media has a booth in this year's Artist Alley. What are you waiting for Homie? Grab your mystic mallet and get down to the convention center! March 13th & 14th, 2010 at the Washington State Convention Center. Advance tickets available here.

You're right of course. It's a hell of a busy weekend, and I have to be damn choosy with my time these days. Having spend a weekend recently lost at the bike swap, it's looking like comics for me this time. But have fun! More about the Seattle Bike Expo here.
