March 1st, 2nd & 3rd saw the 10th annual Emerald City Comicon held in Seattle Washington. There were plenty of lines to wait in.
There was even a line in front of table A-04 where you could find team PROPHET. (that big feller there had a Luther Strode mask on)
Depending on when you visited the table, you could find Simon Roy, Brandon Graham, Joseph Bergin III, and Farel Dalrymple there. (also in the pic you can see Jason from Floating World, Studio JFish, and Corey Lewis)*not shown: Farel Dalrymple*
Here’s Joseph (probably working), Simon eating pizza, and Brandon with a Fender electric bass guitar, probably a Precision (not sure). There were plenty of books to choose from, so long as you weren’t looking for PROPHET #33. And there were stacks and stacks of original pages to buy or just admire.
Joseph even created this special print for the event. It was available as a metallic ink screen print, or he had pieces that were just line work that he sat there all three days and watercolored by hand. It looked as though each watercolored piece was done differently, he was even doing custom paletts if the customer was so inclined. Maybe he still has some available, I don’t know. If he does, he could totally charge double what he was asking for at the con and they’d still be a great deal.
Ash H.G. happened to visit at one point, he was tabling all the way over at the other side of the convention (Table M-05). This year the convention was well over twice as large as it had been in previous years. Before, the show floor was one room, this time, tables A to J were in one room, then on the other side of a sky-bridge that crossed Pike Street, tables K to Y were there. Ha, tables K to Y, smooth move.
Later, after everyone else had passed out or gone to bed, secret meetings were held. Fates of PROPHETS yet to be and PROPHETS that may never exist were discussed. Entire landscapes were raised and razed, civilizations grown and decimated as easily as hemoglobin carries oxygen and carbon dioxide through circulatory systems. Depending on your level of psychic protection, what follows is a brief description of what was discussed, either that, or it will just say:
I serve none but KORROK
I know, right? Crazy business! Excelsior!
