Tickets for ECCC have been sold out online for the last few weeks, but as of this morning, the last tickets that were available in local stores have been sold, making Emerald City Comicon officially sold out!
 
This is a big deal for the ECCC team because we've never had the show sell out in advance before. There were always tickets available at the door, and this will be the first year that option is not available.
 
To repeat: tickets for Emerald City Comicon 2014 will not be available to purchase at the door!
 
Thank you so much to everyone who purchased tickets and supported the show, we have so much cool stuff lined up for you that we hope you have an absolute blast!

03.12.2014   WeLoveFine and Emerald City Comicon Announce First-Ever Convention Partnership: ECCCxWLF

Posted by: Andrea D WeLoveFine and Emerald City Comicon Announce First-Ever Convention Partnership: ECCCxWLF
WeLoveFine and Emerald City Comicon have entered into a groundbreaking partnership to create a line of convention apparel dubbed ECCCxWLF. The ECCCxWLF brand combines some of the most popular licenses WeLoveFine sells crossed with the strong brand identity of Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon.
 
“This new brand came out of numerous conversations with Guy Brand over at WeLoveFine,” said ECCC Convention Director Jim Demonakos. “We were looking for a unique way to integrate some of the great licenses that WeLoveFine produces apparel for, and mix them with our unique convention brand.”
 
“The audience at Emerald City Comicon is deeply involved with pop culture, which is what we live and breathe,” said Guy Brand, Owner of WeLoveFine. “This collaboration allows us to present our licensed properties in a whole new way.”
 
The initial line of ECCCxWLF shirts will consist of ten t-shirts featuring characters from Adventure Time, Marvel Comics, My Little Pony, The Transformers, and more. These shirts will debut and be exclusively available at the upcoming Emerald City Comicon, March 28-30, 2014.
