Emerald City Comicon is gearing up to hit Seattle with all the comic book and pop culture flavor it can handle at the end of this month, and DC Entertainment is bringing some exclusive goodies and a bunch of its talented creators along for the ride.
Two special variants will be on sale at the DCE booth. The first is an appropriately green-tinged version of Batman #29, the oversized issue that wraps up the “Dark City” chapter of the “Zero Year” story by writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo, on sale for $10. Also available for $15 is The Sandman: Overture #1 by Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III, sporting a 3D-motion cover.
Signing sessions at the booth will take place on all three days of the show, with Snyder appearing for an hour each day. The list of writers and artists scheduled to join him includes Jeff Lemire, Dustin Nguyen, Ann Nocenti, Kyle Higgins, Gail Simone, Bill Willingham, Yanick Paquette and Freddie Williams II. Superstar artist and DC co-publisher Jim Lee is also making a special signing appearance from 2 to 4 pm on March 28 in the main ECCC signing area, with wristbands given out on a first-come, first-serve basis at DC’s booth.
For the entire signing schedule and the low-down on DC panels, check out the DC Entertainment website. Emerald City Comicon takes place March 28 through March 30 at the Washington State Convention Center, but hopefully you’ve already got tickets if you’re planning to attend — all three days are completely sold out.
