    Press Release:

    Dark Horse Announces Exclusive Emerald City Comicon Variants!

    MILWAUKIE, OR, MARCH 13—As the pop culture world gears up for Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon, Dark Horse announces not one, not two, not even three, but four variant covers for this year’s show!

    The first few months of 2014 will see some of Dark Horse’s biggest launches of the year, and we have chosen to celebrate with Emerald City variants for Serenity #1, Buffy #1, Veil #1, and a very special variant of Witcher #1.

    First up is Veil, the much-talked-about new, original series by Greg Rucka and Toni Fejzula. For this year’s show, Dark Horse has tapped J. H. Williams III to create the variant cover. Limited to 500 copies, Veil #1 is sure to go quickly, especially with writer Greg Rucka in attendance!

    Next, we have the hotly anticipated Season 10 premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with a variant cover by Season 9 cover artist Phil Noto, limited to 1,000 copies. Look for interior artist Rebekah Isaacs at this year’s show!

    Another one for Joss Whedon fans: Dark Horse brings Jenny Frison on for a special cover of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1, featuring none other than the lovely Inara! A few lucky fans may even get actress Morena Baccarin herself to sign their copies!

    Last, and certainly not least, legendary artist Stan Sakai has done a special cover of the upcoming tie-in series The Witcher, a canonical entry in the world of the Witcher video games, which have collectively won over 250 awards and sold more than 5.5 million copies worldwide! All proceeds from the sale of this limited edition variant will benefit Stan and Sharon Sakai. Stan will be attending the show, in celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of his landmark series, Usagi Yojimbo!

    Each variant-cover issue will cost five dollars and will be limited to ten copies per person, per day! A set quantity will be available at the show opening each day.

    Hope to see you at this year’s Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, WA, on March 28–30!

    Emerald City Comicon Adds Michael Biehn as Their 3rd Celebrity for 2013

    Comments Off on Emerald City Comicon Adds Michael Biehn as Their 3rd Celebrity for 2013

    Michael Biehn Aliens

    Press Release:

    Aliens to invade Seattle! Come to Comicon if you want to live!

    Star of Terminator, Tombstone and Aliens aims his sights on Seattle!

    Seattle, WA – The versatile and recognizable Michael Biehn (“Kyle Reese” The Terminator 1 & T2: Judgment Day, ”Johnny Ringo” from Tombstone, ”Hicks” from Aliens) is the third celebrity guest announced for the upcoming 12th annual Emerald City Comicon taking place on March 28th – 30th, 2014 at the Washington State Convention Center. He will be appearing all three days!

    Michael Biehn is one of those prolific actors and familiar faces that makes it impossible not to have enjoyed at least one of his films. He is arguably best known to mainstream audiences as bad guy “Johnny Ringo” in the cult western classic Tombstone which co-starred Val Kilmer and Kurt Russell. But fans of Sci-Fi fare will know him as both futuristic hero “Kyle Reese” in The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day as well as space marine “Cpl. Hicks” in Aliens, all three films by director James Cameron. Biehn’s partnership with Cameron would continue in the 1989 underwater adventure The Abyss.

    Biehn has played a Navy Seal on the big screen on no less than three occasions: the aforementioned The Abyss, the 1990 film Navy Seals co-starring Charlie Sheen and the Michael Bay action romp The Rock starring Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage.

    Getting his start on television shows such as James at 16, Logan’s Run and Family, Biehn ended up with a recurring role on the critically acclaimed cop drama Hill Street Blues as “Officer Randall Buttman”. He quickly found work on the big screen in the 1983 military piece The Lords of Discipline. He also has an uncredited role as the athlete “Mike” in the 1978 musical Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.

    In recent years, Biehn has returned to television with appearances on Criminal Minds, Adventure Inc., The Magnificent Seven and Law and Order: Criminal Intent, while continuing to tackle roles on the big screen in films including K2, Quentin Tarrantino’s Planet Terror, and Megiddo: The Omega Code 2. He can next be seen in the upcoming cable series 24 Hour Rental, about a group of petty criminals that operate a shady video rental store.

    Biehn was born in Anniston, Alabama. After moving Arizona as youth, he took part in the high school drama program at Lake Havasu City before eventually studying acting at the University of Arizona.

    Also attending with Biehn will be his wife, actress Jennifer Blanc, best known for her work  as “Kendra Maibaum” on the cult television series by James Cameron Dark Angel starring Jessica Alba and as “Kate Bishop” on the FOX drama Party of Five. Other credits include Touched By Angel, Veronica Mars, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Both Biehn and Blanc appear together in the independent 2011 film The VIctim, which they also produced.

    Biehn and Blanc join previously announced celebrity guests Nichelle Nichols (“Lt. Uhura” from Star Trek) and Richard Dean Anderson (star of MacGyver, Stargate SG-1). Roughly two dozen celebrity guests in all will be announced for this spectacular weekend, in addition to hundreds of popular comic guests, exhibitors and several exciting new offerings and surprises.

    Coming off of a sold out 2013 show, tickets for Emerald City Comicon 2014 will be in high demand when they go on sale September 1st, 2014!

    With a record turnout of 64,000 patrons in 2013, Emerald City Comicon consistently ranks as one of the Top 10 most attended conventions of its kind in North America as well as increasingly becoming the favorite show among many fans, comic guests, journalists and celebrities.

    Established in 2003, Emerald City Comicon, while renowned worldwide for its growing popularity, continues to remain the Northwest’s premier comic book and pop culture convention founded in the belief that investing in local artists, companies and individuals is a lasting recipe for success and longevity.

    Look for regular press releases containing all of the latest news leading up to the show in March 2014. For more information, please visit ECCC’s website at www.emeraldcitycomicon.com

    Richard Dean Anderson 2nd Celebrity Guest Announced for Emerald City Comicon 2014

    Comments Off on Richard Dean Anderson 2nd Celebrity Guest Announced for Emerald City Comicon 2014

    Press Release:

    Comicon gets itself into a a bit of a bind. Time to call MacGyver!

    Pop culture icon Richard Dean Anderson comes to Seattle’s rescue!

    Richard Dean AndersonSeattle, WA – Handsome and durable Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver, Stargate SG-1) is the second celebrity guest announced for the upcoming 12th annual Emerald City Comicon taking place on March 28th – 30th, 2014 at the Washington State Convention Center. He will be appearing all three days!

    Richard Anderson is known worldwide as the title character in the hit 80s series MacGyver. Running for seven seasons on ABC, the action hero was notorious for getting himself out of tricky situations week after week purely by using his intellect and not firearms. The character, even though new episodes haven’t been produced in over two decades, continues to endure in pop culture, spawning not only the spoof film MacGruber, reprising “Angus MacGyver” in 2006 for a series of Mastercard commercials, but having become a verb in daily conversation.

    Anderson would go on to achieve equal success as “Jack O’Neill” for eight seasons on Stargate SG-1, a television version of the cult theatrical film that starred Kurt Russell. Anderson also served as executive producer on the series. Leaving the show early to raise his daughter, he continued to appear as “O’Neill” in guest appearances on Stargate SG-1 as well as several of its various spin-offs.

    Before becoming known as an action star, he played a doctor on the long-running soap General Hospital, starring as “Dr. Jeff Webber” from 1976 until 1981. Other television credits include the short-lived UPN series Legend, The Love Boat, The Facts of Life and most recently on the FOX comedy Raising Hope.

    Born in Minnesota, Anderson originally had aspirations to become a professional hockey player until he broke both of his arms. Before making it as an actor, he worked as a whale handler in a marine mammal show, a musician in medieval dinner theater, and as a street mime and juggler. Anderson also seriously considered a career as a jazz musician.

    Anderson is also an avid supporter and activist for various causes including Special Olympics, Waterkeeper Alliance and the Sclerosis Society. He is also on the Board of Trustees for Challengers Boys and Girls Club, as well as on the Board of Advisors of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

    Anderson joins previously announced celebrity guest Nichelle Nichols (“Lt. Uhura” from Star Trek) as the first of roughly two dozen celebrity guests to be announced for this spectacular weekend, in addition to hundreds of popular comic guests, exhibitors and several exciting new offerings and surprises.

    Coming off of a sold out 2013 show, tickets for Emerald City Comicon 2014 will be in high demand when they go on sale September 1st, 2014!
