Comic Con coming to Emerald City March 1-4

By Reuben Gonzales - Staff Reporter



Celebrities are traveling to the Emerald City for this year's Comic-Con to once again be showered with admiration.

 This year's event, like last year's, will have a long list of stars from the big and small screen. 

Actors expected to attend include Doctor Who's David Tennant and Billie Piper, Thor: Ragnarok's Karl Urban, Once Upon a Time's Jennifer Morrison, and many more will be attending.

This year marks the 16th annual Emerald City Comic Con put on by ReedPOP, the same team that works on PAX and Twitch con and much more. This event is the premiere comic and pop culture show for the Northwest.

 "I'm really excited about Karl Urban being there," said Miranda, a student at Highline. "My sisters bought me three photo ops for my birthday, so I get to see the Doctor Who duo also."

Photo opportunities and autograph signings can be purchased online or onsite and range from $30 all the way up to over $100. If bought onsite, bring cash as credit cards are not accepted. This gets up to four adults in a photo.

It isn't just about the celebrities. The event offers days of entertainment in the form of board games, table top games, and much more.

It will also have a large showroom floor to showoff tons of collectables and comics. 

"I really want to get some more Pop figures for my kids, they love those a lot," said Abel, a student at Highline who declined to give his last name.

As of today, there are only tickets for Thursday and Friday left and they are selling fast. Tickets cost $30 for Thursday and $40 for Friday.

"It is very likely that tickets will sell out before the event. In previous years, Comic Con tickets have sold out before the show," according to the Emerald City comic con website. "Once a ticket type sells out, no more will be made available."

The event will be March 1-4 at the Washington State Convention Center, 800 Convention Place. The will doors open at 10 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. except on Sunday which closes at 5 p.m.
