From: Tacoma, WA
I be seeing ya Emerald City Comic Con!! Got my ticket months ago! :D
SEATTLE: Emerald City Comicon!
Emerald City is pretty much my favorite convention all year. And Seattle -- and Seattlites -- are a special kind of awesome. Looking at my server logs, there's an inordinately huge "Sheldon" readership in that part of the world, so this convention is like coming home, for me. I love it: You gotta come.
CALGARY: Calgary Comic Expo!
Anytime I talk to someone about the Calgary show, they have nothing but awesome things to say about it. And it's growing and growing every year. But, the SINGLE GREATEST THING about this show? It'll be my first appearance in Canada ever! Ever! And who knows how often I'll be able to get up there..so you best come out and say "hi"!
Note: With huge apologies, I had to cancel my San Francisco Wondercon appearance due to two family-schedule conflicts! I'm incredibly sorry about that: Next year, I'll be there! Promise!
Emerald city and Calgary is too far and San Diego is sold out. Damn the luck! Phoenix has got one in May I think but I went to it about 15 years ago and it was crappy then. By the looks of it, it hasn't change much.
