For years, Steve and I have talked about traveling out of our comfort zone to attend other cons in the U.S. and one convention always came to mind first – Emerald City Comicon. Now, finally, we are making this dream come true. Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) is THIS weekend in Seattle and the Nerd Fu crew will be there.
