For the last two years, the Nerd Fu crew has been lucky enough to attend Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) in Seattle. This year, things will be a bit different, but Nerd Fu will still have a presence at ECCC. As we have in the past, our goal will be to bring you news from the convention and the events surrounding it.
The Nerd Fu crew will be split up this time, with Sully at the convention & Steve manning the dojo back home. Never fear – We’ll also have some of the FUTang Clan (our loyal friends & followers) at the con. You can follow along all week long, starting Thursday, March 2nd for updates from Seattle and #ECCC.
