01.13.2015   Emerald City Comicon Joins the ReedPOP Family

Posted by: Jim Demonakos, Convention Director Emerald City Comicon Joins the ReedPOP Family
We are excited to announce that Emerald City Comicon and ReedPop are joining forces, and ReedPop will help us continue producing the premier comic book and pop culture convention in the Pacific Northwest!
 
ECCC is one of the most fan-oriented and comics-focused conventions in the U.S., and ReedPop is a fan-based group of professionals putting on pop culture events throughout the world, including New York Comic Con, PAX, C2E2, and Star Wars: Celebration. A classic superhero team-up is what we have here, and we even skipped the messy misunderstanding and battle scene that usually comes before a team-up!
 
Moving forward ECCC will still be produced by the same people who have made this show great, but with the added benefit of having a ton of rad people from ReedPop helping out to make it even more awesome. The Emerald City Comicon team will also start working on ReedPop's events to help make them bigger and better. It's win-win!
 
All that said, we're working hard on finalizing all the details for the upcoming ECCC, so please keep checking this website, along with all our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram) for the latest news on what's in store for our 2015 show! See you in a few short months!
