Last year, we were lucky enough to attend our very first Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) in Seattle. We had an absolute blast in the city, at the convention and we even got to visit Funko headquarters, which was just an Uber ride away in Everett. The year has absolutely flown by and we’re about to head back to the Emerald City for our second ECCC.
We’ll be covering the event, and our shenanigans, all week/weekend long and sharing live to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and right here on the blog. Follow along with us starting Wednesday, April 6th (details & links below).
