James Welborn, founder of Hub Comics, died on May 23rd, 2011. Originally from Nevada, James came to Massachusetts to work in the computer industry. He always loved comic books, and wanted to raise awareness that comics could tell any story and be read by anyone of any age. He built Hub Comics to be not only a comic shop, but a friendly neighborhood destination for fans, artists, children, and families. His smile and gentle greeting of “How’s it going?” will be missed by Union Square.
A trust fund has been set up to provide for James’s family. Please contact Hub Comics for more information.

Comic con season kicks off this again this weekend in Seattle, and you can find Ron and Conor at the Emerald City Comicon on March 4-6.
iFanboy has hit Emerald City for the last three years and we’ve had so much fun that we wouldn’t miss it this year! The talent lineup for this show is absurdly good, since so much of the comic community calls the Pacific Northwest home. As always, if you’re on the convention floor, walk up, say hi, get to know us!
We’re excited, and we hope you’re excited too! We’ll be shooting lots of video in both places for those of you stuck in the rest of the world, because we can’t leave you out!
And if you don’t spot us on the floor, come check out the Emerald City Comicon Live Art Event!
When: Friday, March 4th. 9:30pm to 2:00am
Where: Noc Noc, 1516 2nd Avenue. Seattle, WA 98101

Also featuring local Seattle talent:
Stephan Maich, Autumn Baker, Redd Walitzki, & Carl Faulkner

Dance your cute little behind off to the spinning of DJ Svengali Lad and DJ [Brandon] Jerwa!
Admission is FREE at the door if you say you are there for the live art.
The Noc Noc is a mere couple of blocks from the convention center, so you can continue your geeky excursions well into the night with this event!
All art created will be donated to Emerald City Comicon’s Saturday Night art auction, and all proceeds go the Seattle Children’s Hospital. Come help support art for a good cause, and watch artists do what they do best in a fantastic environment.
RSVP on Facebook! (Not mandatory but it’s nice to know who’s coming.)
