Emerald City Comicon Tickets Still Available!

We still have ECCC tickets available! Please remember that they are cash only please!

 

I’m super excited about Brian K. Vaughan’s return to comics in this week’s Saga #1. Brian K. Vaughan wrote the Vertigo series, Y: The Last Man and Fiona Staples’ beautiful art can bee seen in North 40. This book also got a lot of internet bruhaha when Dave Dorman ranted about the cover on his blog. He has deleted the original blog post (very 1984 of you, Dorman), but you can read more about it over at Comics Alliance.

You can read the description of the book in the Spotlight items for this week section below.

The Vine destroyed Aric’s world. Now he will give them war.
