Emerald City Comicon 2013 Fancy Sketches

Despite being sick with a cold and feeling like a burlap sack full of gravel and crap all weekend, Emerald City Comicon was still (as always) a fantastically fun and rewarding experience. Any other show and I might have let my illness dampen my spirits but the organizers and attendees of ECCC shine in every way that make a convention great. I cannot stress enough that THIS is the show you need to be saving up for and traveling to from out of state. It’s gotten bigger and better every year and shows no signs of stopping.

I did my very best not infect my fellow cartoonists and the attendees with my virus, but I expect that the CDC will eventually identify me as Patient Zero in what will come to be known as “The Plague of Nations.” Totes sorry, guys LOL. #yolo

COMMENTERS: Have you ever had a trip, event or highly anticipated whatever sidelined by illness? Did you stay home and rest like a sensible human or did you go, stay out until 4am every night partying like a monster then put yourself in contact with 1000’s of people every day like an even bigger monster? Who does that?

  1. Rory's incessantly well-adjusted attitude always torked me a bit… not to mention the whole 'How can a 1000 year old plastic robot with a laser in his hand father a child????' thing that bugged me.

    I do think, back in 2005, I was the source of whatever supervirus panicked the world. I spent about 14 months in the Middle East, picked up what was 'lovingly' referred to as the 'Kuwaiti Krud', the 'Iraqi Ick' and the 'Qatari Trots'. While I was leaving, I had what could only be described as the flu, only to recover for about a day before going to Mexico for my honeymoon…

    • "'How can a 1000 year old plastic robot with a laser in his hand father a child????'"

      He was retconed back to full human at one point. Still has all the memories though.

  2. When I was a kid we went down to southern New Mexico. White Sands, Carlsbad Caverns, we were even going to head across the border into Mexico for a day as our first trip out of the country. Unfortunately I got a bad case of the flu and we had to cut the whole thing short. We still made it to White Sands and Carlsbad, but it's all a bit of a fever-blur to me.

  3. hmm… on day my family packed up a lot of stuff and got on a plane to fly thousands of miles across the ocean to migrate to another country… I got the flu of the decade. Complete with awesome "OMFG, you're glowing" high fever.. Already surreal trip was made triply so.

    And just couple years ago a super planned & highly anticipated trip to visit b/f's family for thanksgiving I got yet another fantastic flu (and my already-screaming-for-rootcanal rotting tooth kicked it into high pain gear too)
    But dammit, went anyways!! Nothing freaks out TSA like tryin to cough up your lungs in the middle of the metal detector (and in the mild haze of fever the trip turned out not too bad anyway. Even with puking blue colors for a day)

  4. Technically its a cockomancer. A cockromancer is someone who romances cocks, as opposed to josh, who merely appreciates them.

  5. Every. Damn. Time. I go to Asia for a conference, I get wiped out half way through, deliver my presentations while being barely able to stand, and miss all the fun stuff like drinking on a giant boat on top of a giant skyscraper, or watching some dudes punch each other.

  6. Recently, I made the mistake of attending my 1 year old niece's birthday party. It was filled with snotty, booger invested munchkins. This is all 1 week before going on a cruise. Sure enough, 2 days before the cruise, massive head cold. I still went though.

    So if you happened to be on the Freedom of the Seas February 10-17, I'm sorry.

  7. "Did you stay home and rest like a sensible human or did you go, stay out until 4am every night partying like a monster then put yourself in contact with 1000′s of people every day like an even bigger monster?"

    Oh my gosh. I can't stop laughing…
