Welp, it finally happened. I just bought tickets to a comic book convention that isn't Emerald City Comicon. Yes, I'm only headed a couple hundred miles south to the fine city of Portland, but this is still sort of a big deal for me. The last year or so I've been thinking about how much fun it would be to travel to a bigger con in some other state. Rose City isn't exactly a bigger con, but I can drive there so my out of pocket cost isn't that crazy. I'd have to check but I'm pretty sure two days at Rose City plus a hotel for a night in Portland was less than I paid for tickets to ECCC this year.
Should be fun, Rose City Comic Con had a partnership with the old owners of Emerald City. The website and logo, even the way they distribute tickets via local comic book shops, is very much what ECCC looked like two years ago before they were bought out by BIG COMIC BOOK CONVENTION.
The convention is about a month away so I have a good amount of time to obsess about driving down there and eating lunch alone. Hopefully its a good time. I've never put a bird on anything, so that will be fun.
