Seattle/ETP trip: Emerald City Con

The other reason i was in Seattle was for the annual Emerald City Comic Convention- it was my 1st time there as a guest of the show and i had a wonderful time.

I got to spend a few precious moments with old friends like writer Kurt Busiek whom I see far too little of...

The bonus for me was that my birthday also fell on that weekend-this meant i got to spend it with both my ETP friends and my comic book buddies.

My lil bro, Mike Oeming (see Mikey with his cuter half, Taki below) even threw me a surprise birthday party at a local public house.

As you can see I was pleasantly surprised.

I got to hang with a roomful of writers and artists who were all young enough to be my kids-lol-but it was a great night filled with drinking,laughter and more drinking...yeesh...I ain't as young as I used to be...;o)

I hope to return someday to the show-and Seattle-it was a gas!
